Research Interests

Professor Blair's research focuses on the behavior of carbon on the Earth's surface. The pathways of organic carbon decomposition and sequestration as mediated by biological and physical processes in soils and sediments. This information is integrated into a conceptual model that describes the transformations of organic carbon as it moves across landscapes and the seafloor. Human impacts on this lateral portion of the C-cycle are considered.
