BioDue largely to human activities associated with food and energy production, the world is experiencing an un-precedented mobilization of nutrients such as nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P). A substantial portion of this mobilized N and P flows into streams and rivers, and eventually down to coastal waters, where nutrient over-enrichment has been associated with a host of environmental impacts. En route to the ocean, these nutrients can alter ecosystem function as well as the balance of atmospheric greenhouse gases.
I use experimental and spatially explicit modeling approaches to elucidate processes governing the mobilization, transport, transformation, and ecosystem/biogeochemical impacts of land-based N, P, and other bio-active elements.
