Marrasé, Celia

My scientific objectives are related to plankton ecology. I am interested in understanding how nutrient fluxes are mediated by trophic food webs and how these fluxes are influenced by the variability of physical factors. In particular, I have studied the effects of small-scale turbulence on nutrient uptake by microorganisms, stoichiometry of organic matter and plankton interactions. Recently, I have started to study the spatial distribution of fluorescent dissolved organic matter (FDOM) in coastal and open waters, and also the production and degradation of these fluorescent compounds by photochemical and biological processes. To achieve my objectives I combine field work with laboratory experiments.
