Seminar: Dr. Steve Skrabal, UNC Wilmington

October 14 @ 3:35 pm - 4:35 pm

The Photochemistry of Resuspendable Sediments and Its Importance to the Cycling of Metals, Nutrients, and Algal Toxins in Coastal Waters (Host: Marc Alperin) Recent work in our laboratory has addressed the role of photochemically induced release of organic and inorganic nutrients, trace metals, and algal toxins associated with resuspendable sediments in coastal environments. Photorelease of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and total dissolved copper and vanadium have been observed in sediments from diverse biogeochemical settings, after modest irradiation times (equivalent of…

ENSO variance and cyclone frequency in the North Atlantic: a complex relationship (Host: Chris Martens) Assessing the skill of climate models predicting future cyclone occurrence has been a challenge, in large part, because historical and paleo-records of cyclones have either been too coarse or too short to capture the long, subtle cycles of climate forces affecting cyclone frequency. Sediment cores from two drainage basins on the island of St. Croix, USVI contain a sub-decadal, five hundred year record of cyclones in…

Coral reefs as paleo-recorders of human impacts on coastal environments (Host: Justin Baumann) Coral reefs are treasure-troves of historical records. Individual coral skeletons themselves track changes in water quality and temperature, as well as the coral response to these changing environmental conditions. Meanwhile, changes in coral and benthic foraminifera communities, both responsive to environmental changes, are recorded in reefs themselves and reef sediments. By comparing changes on reefs with differing human-impact histories, we can assess how human activities affect coastal habitats…
