About Joseph M. Smoak

Dr. Smoak's research focuses on wetland carbon sequestration and the role wetlands play in climate change. He examines freshwater wetlands and mangrove systems (coastal wetlands) to assess the wetlands current contribution to the global carbon budget, and how the contribution may change as the climate warms. These investigations are being conducted at several sites in Brazil and in the Florida Everglades. Specific research interests and projects are: Uranium and thorium series radionuclides as tracers of geological processes; organic carbon burial in wetlands; mangrove ecosystem response to sea-level change.
