Conte, Maureen MBL Fellow, Ecosystems Center

Positions

Dr. Maureen Conte’s research group conducts multi-disciplinary research on ocean and terrestrial carbon cycle processes using a variety of geochemical and isotopic techniques. The Bermuda Oceanic Flux Program (OFP) is an on-going time-series of sedimentation patterns in the deep Sargasso Sea that spans over thirty years. The OFP time-series anchors our oceanographic research activities and helps to foster our research and educational collaborations across a diverse scientific community. The OFP mooring’s three sediment traps collect a continuous record of particulate flux through the water column. Detailed analyses of the flux composition using a variety of chemical techniques yield valuable insights into the interplay between the ocean’s particle cycle, ocean biology and physics, and climate.
