  • San Lorenzo River, California: Characterization of nutrient sources, concentrations, and fluxes during low- and high-flow events

Current Projects

  • Maunalua Bay, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi: Submarine groundwater discharge drives biogeochemistry in two Hawaiian reefs

    Examined changes in carbonate system parameters due to groundwater discharge and biological processes (calcification-dissolution and photosynthesis-respiration) 

  • Maunalua Bay, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi: Sources and spatial variability of groundwater-delivered nutrients

    Utilized a multi-tracer approach, consisting of C, N, and O stable isotopes in water as well as groundwater modeling, to detect wastewater signatures in groundwater emanating from a coastal aquifer on Oʻahu with a high-density of OSDS

  • San Francisco Bay and Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California: Constraining agricultural drainage dissolved C, N, and P loads at select islands
