Dr Vopel's Marine Science Group studies the production and decomposition of organic matter in marine sediment as a means of understanding how environmental change affects ecosystem functioning. The group approaches ecology primarily through underwater and laboratory experiments in which microsensor techniques are combined with standard analytical techniques and numerical modeling.
