Jeff Lawrence - Lowery Public School CO10 (Tahlequah, OK)
Research Experience: Ecological Student on the Patagonian Shelf (R/V ROGER REVELLE)
Research Objectives: To document the factors regulating the spatial-temporal distribution of the coccolithophore blooms, using a combination of underway, satellite, and discrete sampling and to examine the effects of ocean acidification on algal optical properties, coccolithophore concentrations and particulate inorganic carbon concentrations. This research provides a better understanding of coccolithophore ecology that is critical for modeling complex biogeochemical processes that regulate phytoplankton production and the biological pump.
