Adrian Burd, Co-Investigator / Associate Professor

Adrian Burd

Research Emphasis:

Biological oceanography, in particular developing computer models that incorporate biological, physical and chemical aspects of a marine system; marine snow and understanding the dynamics of vertical flux in the oceans; the growth and production of benthic macrophytes, especially seagrass beds; marine food webs, in particular in coastal and mid-water regions.
