Associate Professor Andrew Bowie is a Chemical Oceanographer. His research investigates the biogeochemistry of trace elements in Southern Ocean and Antarctic sea ice environments, with projects addressing key research questions related to atmospheric dust deposition and solubilities, ocean iron fertilisation, physico-chemical speciation of trace elements and their isotopes, and the role of ocean dynamics on chemical and biological marine processes. His research outcomes are focused on assessment of trace element control of ocean productivity, ocean carbon sequestration and expanding our knowledge of marine geochemical processes. His research is supported by the ACE CRC, the Australian Research Council (ARC), and several national and international collaborative grants.
