Centers, Labs, and Programs
Focuses on the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in marine systems.
CalCOFI is a long-term, interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral ecosystem research program off the coast of California that holistically studies the physics, biogeochemistry, and biology of the marine environment to inform the sustainable management of marine resources in the context of climate change
