Expertise

Marine Biogeochemistry

  Air-sea gas exchange of gases and gaseous compounds (volatile halogenated

    hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide, oxygen, and gaseous mercury compounds)

  Particle associated trace elements in sinking and suspended particles

  The carbonate system of the Baltic Sea with a special emphasis on the CO2 air-sea

   gas exchange

  Mercury species in seawater

   a) Transformation of ionic mercury and sea-air exchange of gaseous elemental

   mercury

   b) Concentration distribution and controlling processes of Methylmercury,

   dimethylmercury, elemental mercury, and total mercury in suboxic, anoxic

   as well as sulfidic waters of the Baltic Sea.

  Nutrients cycling, eutrophication and oxygen depletion in Baltic Sea water masses
