Research Interests

Research Interests Dr. Michael Seidel

I study the biogeochemistry of dissolved organic matter in marine and terrestrial systems under different settings and in different biomes:

·         Microbe-environment interactions using laboratory microcosms,

·         Coastal oceans, including intertidal sediments and salt marshes,

·         Marine-terrestrial boundaries, such as the river-to-ocean continuum of the Amazon and
          subterranean estuaries,

·         Sources and sinks of deep ocean refractory carbon, and

·         Biodegradation of oil from anthropogenic and natural sources.
