Marine Chemistry

 


Our research involves the study of the metabolic budget of the ocean and different chemical oceanographic parameters. For this work, we collaborate with the Analytical Core Lab of KAUST​.

Oxigen measurements - Metabolism ​

Winkler iodometric determination is a reference method for the measurement of dissolved oxygen (DO) in waters. This methodology allows the determination of Gross Primary Prduction (GPP), Net Community Production (NCP) and Community Respiration (CR) produced by the plankton community.

Alkalinity measurements​ ​

Alkalinity is an important parameter for understanding the carbonate system in sea water. It is a parameter that can be combined with additional parameters, e.g., pH, pCO2, or dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), to determine other parameters.
