Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry

Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry logo

The Centre undertakes research on the Global Change issues of nutrient over-enrichment (Eutrophication), ocean acidification, climate change, greenhouse gases and hypoxia.

We work in estuaries, rivers and catchments, nearshore coastal waters, mangroves, seagrasses, salt-marshes, wetlands, muds, permeable sands and coral reefs.

Our research tools include stable isotopes, process measurements, automated instrumentation, experimental manipulations, material mass balances and ecosystem modelling and comparative studies.

Excellence in Research for Australia ranking

The Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry is a major contributor to Southern Cross University's Geochemistry area, which received the top 2015 ERA rating of 5.0 (outstanding performance well above world standard). Read more about our research.
