My USGS Science Strategy Areas

Understanding Ecosystems & Predicting Ecosystems Change

Climate Variability & Change

Research Focus Area

In recent years his research has focused on carbon cycling at large river basin scales with an emphasis on riverine export of dissolved organic carbon and on hydrologic responses to climate change with an emphasis on intensification of the hydrologic cycle.  He has also recently worked on estuarine eutrophication, denitrification in wetland soils, and inhibition of mercury methylation.
