About This Workshop

Spatial heterogeneity and biodiversity of the seafloor is important in assessing carbon processing and ecosystem functioning. This workshop aims to share experience and to identify best practices for modeling the impact of benthic organisms on mediation of both solid and solute fluxes in coastal ocean models.

Wenyan Zhang 

I am interested in understanding those physical / geological / biochemical processes which control the source-to-sink transport of solid material (clastic sediment and particulate organic matter) on the Earth surface. More specifically, my research topics include:

  • The quantitative impact of macrobenthos in benthic-pelagic coupling and seafloor material recycling
  • Morphogenesis and morphodynamics of medium- to large-scale sedimentary systems
  • Sedimentation processes from coastal, mid-shelf to deep-sea environments
