The ocean is a dynamic biochemical reactor.

The processes which take place throughout its huge volume have large impacts on global climate and life everywhere. Most of these processes are poorly quantified in today's world, and long-term variations are largely unknown.

Research into these processes at UBC brings together biologists, chemists, geologists and physical oceanographers. The intersection of these traditionally separate fields provides a fertile ground for our expanding appreciation of the earth system.
