New Irish IMBeR endorsed project: NUTS&BOLTS – Importance of Physico-Chemical Cycling of Nutrients and Carbon in Marine Transitional Zones

IMBeR is delighted to announce its latest endorsed project: NUTS&BOLTS – Importance of Physico-Chemical Cycling of Nutrients and Carbon in Marine Transitional Zones.

NUTS&BOLTS is a four-year project undertaken by Prof. Peter Croot and colleagues at the National University of Ireland Galway, funded by the Irish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Marine Institute.

NUTS&BOLTS aims to address crucial knowledge gaps regarding the impacts of multiple environmental stressors on nutrient and carbon cycling in Ireland’s marine transitional zones (MTZs). Several novel applications will be used to improve our understanding, both qualitatively and quantitatively, of the physical and chemical processes, and their fluxes, that impact biological activity in Irish coastal marine and transitional waters.

Read more about NUTS&BOLTS on the IMBeR endorsed projects website.

The IMBeR Science Plan provides a framework that supports participation of regional, national and individual research efforts in the IMBeR project. We invite and encourage research project PIs to apply for IMBeR endorsement.
