This is a hybrid event. It will be live in the Tilley Lecture Theatre and broadcast on Zoom (

The removal of carbon from the surface of the planet is a critical component of the long-term carbon cycle; this removal is through the deposition and subsequent burial of organic carbon and carbonate minerals in the ocean. Sedimentary, post-depositional, processes play a key role in the global carbon cycle as much of the organic carbon deposited in marine sediments is broken down through a series of microbial reactions, releasing the organic carbon and directly impacting the saturation state of carbonate minerals. In this talk I will discuss my research into the drivers of modern sedimentary carbon cycling using approaches ranging from multiple isotope system measurements, machine learning and reactive transport modelling. I will then show how this improved understanding can be used to determine how changing oceanic conditions would have impacted carbon cycling in marine sediments over the Phanerozoic.
