Research activities in the Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry (MC&G) Department are focused on exploring the broad spectrum of processes that influence chemical cycling in the oceans and their interactions with the atmosphere, land, and Earth’s interior. Critical to these efforts are considerations of how ocean chemistry influences and responds to biological activity and the impact of anthropogenic activity on the marine environment. We are a diverse group of researchers working at the interface of multiple disciplines using a combination of laboratory, field-based, and computational approaches. Projects range in size from single investigator studies to large collaborative projects involving investigators from multiple institutions.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is dedicated to research and education to advance understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system, and to communicating this understanding for the benefit of society. Learn more »
