James T. Hollibaugh

Professor - Department of Marine Sciences

University of Georgia

Oceanography, biogeochemistry, C, N and P cycling and eutrophication, microbial ecology

Issues of Interest:
Land-sea interactions in the coastal zone, net ecosystem metabolism, terrestrial loadings of biogeochemically reactive substances to the coastal zone, eutrophication, sediment metabolism, metal and metalloid biogeochemistry, general estuarine ecology.

Current Projects:
Georgia Coastal LTER, various projects in the San Francisco Bay Delta related to fresh water diversion from the Sacramento/San Joaquin rivers, arsenic and selenium cycling.

Oceans, esp. coastal ocean, estuaries, lakes, rivers, water conveyance structures.
