Abstract: The overall goal of this project is to investigate the impact of climate variability, climate change, and land-cover/land-use change on the transport and cycling of carbon and nitrogen to and within the coastal ocean margins. This goal will be achieved by linking an ocean biogeochemical-circulation model of the Northeastern North American continent ... [more]
