Biogeochemical Regionlization of the British Columbia Coastal Ocean

The BC coastal ocean is incredibly complex to its network of coastal fjords and channels, dynamic bathymetry, and strong inputs of water and materials from both the ocean the the land. The Pelagic Ecosystems Lab is using a multi-faceted approach to understand this complex environment – identifying regions based on their biogeochemical properties, the interaction and connection between regions, and their response to climate forcing.
