Along with colleagues from the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research at the University of Bremen and the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, Dr. Sikes will be collaborating on a joint research project, “Sources and fate of detrital particulate carbon in a coastal plain estuary,” which aims to investigate carbon cycling in the Delaware River estuary to assess burial (sequestration) versus biological re-mineralization of carbon along the estuary’s chemical gradient. The goal of the project is to improve understanding of carbon budgets within estuaries as well as the influence of estuarine processing on carbon that is delivered to the ocean.
