Ecological & Biological Capture

Pete Raymond’s research focuses on the chemistry and ecology of inland waters. This includes research on the exchange of greenhouse gases between inland waters and the atmosphere, controls on the transport of terrestrial elements to inland and coastal waters, the metabolism of aquatic ecosystems, and how storms and droughts impact aquatic ecology. He also uses radiocarbon measurements to explore the age and turnover of carbon in aquatic ecosystems.  Raymond is currently Editor and Chief of the American Geophysical Union’s journal Global Biogeochemical Cycles. Raymond received his BS from Marist College and his PhD from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (College of William and Mary). He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a member of the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering, received the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federations Cronin Award for Young Scientists, and is a ISI highly cited author.
