Project Title:Assessing Impacts of Climate and Land Use Change on Terrestrial-Ocean Fluxes of Carbon and Nutrients and Their Cycling in Coastal Ecosystems

Project Leader(s):

Steven (Steve) Lohrenz, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

Project Duration: 2010 - 2013
Solicitation:NASA: Interdisciplinary Research in Earth Science (2009)
Abstract: Changing climate and land use practices have the potential to dramatically alter coupled hydrologic-biogeochemical processes and associated movement of water, carbon and nutrients through various terrestrial reservoirs. Such changes will ultimately influence the delivery of dissolved and particulate materials from terrestrial systems into rivers, e ... [more]
