Research Impact & Significance – I study atmospheric deposition to the surface ocean. The deposition can either be precipitation (rainwater sampler pictured in photo) or aerosols. Both provide nutrients to small planktonic organisms in the surface ocean which in turn are the basis of the marine food web.
