Research Project: Picophytoplankton physiology and the microbial loop

Supervisor: Dr Erik Buitenhuis (University of East Anglia, School of Environmental Sciences)
Secondary Supervisor: Dr Laurent Bopp (Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique), Prof Corinne le Quéré (University of East Anglia, School of Environmental Sciences)

Project Description

Specific focus on the role of picophytoplankton and the microbial loop in the marine C cycle. Laboratory work (phytoplankton cultures), data synthesis, and modelling will be used to investigate how changes in picophytoplankton and the microbial loop could lead to large changes in future atmospheric CO2 through their controls on air-sea exchange.
