Figure above: Distribution of dissolved organic carbon in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans (Hansell et al., 2009)


The Hansell Laboratory


We focus primarily on carbon and nitrogen cycles and the distribution and movement of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in the ocean. These efforts consist of both time series studies as well as survey and process work in various ocean basins.

Research Topics

  •  Marine biogeochemistry         
  •   Carbon and nitrogen cycling
  •   Dissolved organic matter (DOM) cycling
  •   Regional oceanography in a global context
  •   Net community production of DOM
  •   Deep ocean DOM
  •   Export of DOM in overturning circulation
  •   Atmospheric controls on ocean biogeochemistry
