Midwater Ecology

Project Manager and Lead Scientist: Bruce Robison

Robison’s research is focusing on quantifying the amount of organic carbon tied up in the third, fourth, and higher tropic levels of the marine food web. Respiration studies to measure metabolism will determine how much nutrient energy is consumed at each major step in the web.
