A key focus for our expertise and strategy in these fields is the application of carbon isotope analyses, coupled with general geochemical analysis, to provide absolute evaluation of carbon cycles, sources, and fate.
Evaluation of carbon source(s) and cycling with geochemical data, coupled with carbon isotope analysis, provides the capability to:
- Evaluate ecosystem health, predict remedial time scale, and identify parties responsible for environmental stress;
- Assess methane hydrate concentrations in deep sediment, contribution to climate change, and revise coastal ocean carbon models; and
- Test developing carbon sequestration technology, monitoring sequestration application and predict residence time.
