Abstract:

The long-term goal of my research is to understand how microbial biofilms, may influence the optical properities of sediments and other surfaces in coastal oceans. The specific project goals are to determine how biofilm components may alter optical spectra through changes in reflectance, scattering and fluorescence. This project is a part of the CoBOP Coastal Benthic Optical Properties initiative in the Environmental Optics Program.
