Dr Ute Schuster
Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography

Profile

I am a marine biogeochemist studying the variability of the marine carbon cycle through observations and numerical techniques. I am a member of the observational group at Exeter that specialises in making and interpreting oceanic measurements of carbon cycle parameters at high accuracy and precision. My core research aims to understand the biogeochemical drivers of the changes observed in the marine environment, both the exchange of CO2 with the atmosphere through the sea surface, and the transport and storage of carbon in the ocean interior.

I am the lead of the Atlantic section in the Surface Ocean CO2 Atlas (www.socat.info).

I am actively involved in UK NERC funded projects: ABC fluxes (www.rapid.ac.uk/abc); and EU funded project RINGO (www.icos-ri.eu/ringo).

Previous projects I worked in included the UK NERC funded Ocean Acidification Programme (www.oceanacidification.org.uk) and RAGNARoCC (www.greenhouse-gases.org.uk/ragnarocc), and the EU funded projects IMCORP, CAVASSOO, and GREENCYCLES II (www.greencycles.org), CARBOCHANGE (carbochange.b.uib.no), INGOS (www.ingos-infrastructure.eu), GEOCARBON (www.geocarbon.net), and FixO3 (www.fixo3.eu).

Broad research specialisms:

  • Marine carbon cycle
  • Ocean and atmosphere observations
  • Marine biogeochemical cycles
  • Radiatively active gases
