Abstract:

The long term goal of this research is to examine the processes that control trace metal concentrations in near-shore waters. Within this context, we examine the role of chemical exchange across the sediment-water interface and the examine how changes in harbor processes will affect water column trace metal burdens. This research represents the collaboration between scientists with expertise on biogenic matter degradation W.B., USC and trace metal analyses K. Coale and K. Johnson, Moss Landing Marine Labs with the long-term goal to develop and integrated understanding of trace metal behavior in near-shore sediments.
