Coastal Biogeochemistry


Matthew Long

My research interests include ecosystem metabolism, calcification, and nutrient cycling, the in-situ natural drivers of these processes, and their roles in global biogeochemical cycling. I have interests in global environmental change, specifically hypoxia, ocean acidification, and rising temperatures, and their influence on specific bio-physical interactions and generally on the global carbon cycle. This research often includes the development and engineering of new in situ sensors, platforms, and vehicles to investigate these processes. My research is interdisciplinary involving biology, geochemistry, fluid dynamics, and community ecology. Current opportunities in my lab include carbon cycling in seagrass ecosystems, coral reef calcification, and in situ sensor and platform development with opportunities for both laboratory and field research.
