Abstract:

The long-term goal of this study is to develop a better mechanistic and quantitative understanding of the effects of biologically-enhanced transport, mineralogy, sediment fabric, and particle surface chemistry on biogeochemical reactions occurring in coastal sediments. Specifically, we plan to integrate quantitative expressions of the strongly coupled effects of bioirrigation, bioturbation, mineralogy, and sediment fabric on chemical mass transfer from field and laboratory mesocosm studies using numerical modeling.
