Miss Chelsey Baker is a Postgraduate research student within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

BSc (1st) in Ocean Science from Bangor University
Awarded a distinction for my MSc in Oceanography from the University of Southampton

I am a postgraduate research student at the National Oceanography Centre working with the Ocean Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems Group. I am currently investigating the effect of community structure and atmospheric forcing on carbon storage in the Iceland Basin. More specifically I will be looking into the role of mesoscale and temporal variability on carbon sequestration to attempt to better determine the controls of the biological carbon pump.

Research interests

My current research interests are relating to the functioning of the biological carbon pump and the effects on carbon storage in the deep ocean.

I am also continuing on the research which formed my Master’s research project based around slow sinking carbon collected by Marine Snow Catchers and trying the to determine the magnitude, importance and controls.

During my BSc I investigated the link between polysaccharides, flocculation and high primary productivity.
