Research Activities Research interests: the input, fate and effects of anthropogenic organic contaminants (e.g., PAH, PCB, petroleum hydrocarbons) in the open ocean and in coastal waters. Principle areas of research include contaminantbiogeochemistry in the water column and at the sediment-water interface with a special emphasis on the role benthic organisms play in the degredation, remobilization and transport of sediment-bound organics. This research has required involvement in: field sampling and sample analysis, lab management and lab assistant supervision, development of coastal monitoring programs and the translation of research results into information to support resource management decision-making; WHOI Rinehart Coastal Research Center: responsible forday-to-day operation of the Center, including budget management and staff supervision. RCRC activities include support of new research, education and -outreach- to translate the results of coastal research to non-scientists.
