Oceans - Sediments
Oceans, climate and carbon
Oceans are key in regulating our climate by absorbing and sequestering carbon. Particularly shelf and coastal oceans are key in the long-term storage of carbon.
Ongoing human-induced disturbances are changing the dynamics of our seas. In my research, I leverage statistical and data science tools to determine the patterns of the ocean floor carbon. I also consider the socioeconomic implications of those stocks.
Global carbon stocks in EEZs
Carbon on land is accounted for in IPCC frameworks: but what about the carbon stored underwater in Economic Exlcusive Zones? Explore our initial paper here, and contact us for more information on the ongoing project!
