Steven Robert Beaupré
Ph.D., 2007 University of California, Irvine
Dr. Beaupré’s research constrains the ocean’s role in Earth’s climate system by examining the marine component of the global carbon cycle. Specifically, he investigates the provenance and reactivity of organic carbon in the sea by coupling radiocarbon (14C) dating with chemical analyses. His work has appeared in Nature Geoscience, Geophysical Research Letters, Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, and Fusion: Journal of the American Scientific Glassblowers Society, and he has contributed several textbook chapters on carbon isotopes in the sea.
Study areas include:
- Biogeochemistry of marine dissolved and particulate organic matter (DOM, POM), dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), sediments, and primary marine aerosol; terrestrial soils
- Reaction analyses (photochemical, thermal, biological, acid/base mineralization) and rapid characterization of complex mixtures (DOM, POM, sediments) with coarse chemical-, isotopic-, and kinetic- spectra
- Instrumental and methodological development; radiocarbon analyses
