The major focus of Nicole's research thus far has been the exchange of CO2 between the atmosphere and the Southern Ocean, a large oceanic region stretching from the Antarctic continent to the subtropics of the Southern Hemisphere. The Southern Ocean is a region of critical importance to the global carbon cycle, as it is responsible for approximately half of the oceanic CO2 uptake.  Her research has helped to show that the absorption of CO2 by the Southern Ocean may have slowed in recent decades, due to anthropogenic changes in the climate system.

Amanda Carrico
Sciences Core

Amanda's work examines the psychological and social underpinnings of sustainable behavior.  She has explored this question within the context of energy and climate policy in the US, neighborhood and household lawn management practices, and agricultural water use in South Asia. She also has a new line of work to examine how individuals engaged in resource dependent livelihoods respond and adapt to environmental change.

Joel Hartter

Joel's research broadly focuses on the social and ecological impacts of landscape change and the implications for sustainable livelihoods.

Mark Williams
Sciences Core

Mark's research interest is the ecology of mountain areas, looking at the interaction of organisms with their environment, focusing on classical environmental variables such as soil, rocks, and minerals as well as surrounding water sources and the local atmosphere.
