Silicon Cycling in Glacial Environments: Tracing Si from Subglacial Weathering to Fjord Biogeochemical Cycling

I'm interested in biogeochemical cycles of glacial environments, with a focus on subglacial weathering processes and the export of key nutrients to downstream ecosystems.

I'm curretly using silicon isotope composition to:

  • Investigate subglacial weathering processes
  • Understand export of Si from subglacial environments
  • Assess differences between glacial and non-glacial environments

I'm also investigating fjord environments to:

  • Assess the impact of glacially-derived nutrients on wider biogeochemical cycles
  • Consider the consquences of Si with a distinct isotopic signature to the wider Si cycle
