Research Interests Dr. Michael Seidel
I study the biogeochemistry of dissolved organic matter in marine and terrestrial systems under different settings and in different biomes:
· Microbe-environment interactions using laboratory microcosms,
· Coastal oceans, including intertidal sediments and salt marshes,
· Marine-terrestrial boundaries, such as the river-to-ocean continuum of the Amazon and
· Sources and sinks of deep ocean refractory carbon, and
· Biodegradation of oil from anthropogenic and natural sources.
