Project Description

Dr. White’s research examines the persistence of oil and other organic contaminants in the marine environment. Her work seeks to examine how the chemical structure, physical associations, and bioavailability of specific compounds determine their cycling and eventual fate. Dr. White is particularly interested in the long-term fate of organic contaminants in both coastal and offshore environments, and how the presence of these compounds affects ecosystem services and human health.
