A key focus for our expertise and strategy in these fields is the application of carbon isotope analyses, coupled with general geochemical analysis, to provide absolute evaluation of carbon cycles, sources, and fate.
Evaluation of carbon source(s) and cycling with geochemical data, coupled with carbon isotope analysis, provides the capability to:
- Assess methane hydrate concentrations in deep sediment, methane contribution to climate change, and impact on coastal acoustics; and redevelop coastal carbon models;
- Assess CO2 sequestration technology and predict residence time; and
- Monitor ecosystem health and identify parties responsible for environmental stress.
