From global database to local phenomena

The Particle Dynamics Group studies the dynamics and biogeochemistry of particle formation, sinking, resuspension, transport and diagenesis in the ocean from the continental shelf to the deep sea and from surface waters to the seafloor.
A major initiative is to obtain worldwide measurements of POC in surface waters and fine particle distributions throughout the water column using transmissometers to help determine global ocean processes of particle generation and recycling.

For a better understanding of our course of study see Dr. Gardner's article “Visibility in the ocean and the effects of mixing”.

For a detailed explanation of equipment we use see Dr. Richardson's article “Tools of the trade”.
