Mitigating the harmful effects of global CO2 increases is both a global and local problem and there is wide consensus that negative emissions technologies are required to meet global warming mitigation goals. The goal of this project is to evaluate the potential for the chemical treatment of wastewater streams to achieve Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement (OAE) and mCDR in a coastal environment using a combination of targeted field evaluations and numerical model simulations. The position will involve the development and applications of coupled hydrodynamic-biogeochemical models, and the analysis of observational data. He/she will have an opportunity to collaborate with an interdisciplinary team of scientists including sea-going oceanographers. We offer full financial support for your graduate study in the MEES program at the University of Maryland ( Your assistantship includes an annual stipend, tuition, and eligibility to participate in a group health insurance plan.
