Marine Biogeochemistry

In situ incubation experiments

Development of experimental devices that can be deployed in the marine habitat and experiments conducted in situ are critical for understanding local bio-geo-coupling processes. However, working "in the marine field" particularly at greater water depths can be challenging and requires special equipment.
