Project Title: Geochemistry of redox sensitive trace elements in a shallow subterranean estuary

Date: 2015

Principal Investigator(s):  O’Connor, A. E., Luek, J. L., McIntosh, H., & Beck, A. J.

Abstract: Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) is an important component of chemical fluxes in the coastal ocean. The composition of SGD is influenced by biogeochemical reactions that take place within the subterranean estuary (STE), the subsurface mixing zone of fresh and saline groundwaters. The STE is characterized by redox gradients that affect the speciation and mobility of redox-sensitive elements (RSEs).  Read full text… Marine Chemistry, 172, 70-81.
