Understanding sediment biochemistry to better asses human impact on North Sea ecology

The North Sea is subject to rapid human development. NIOZ scientist Emil de Borger has focused his research on characterizing the shelf sea’s sediment biogeochemistry to develop models that improve the impact assessment of these human activities. On January 29, he will defend his thesis ‘Effects of natural processes and human activity on North Sea sediment biogeochemistry’ at Ghent University.
