Research Interests

Using biogeochemical-Argo autonomous profiling floats to fill major ocean observing gaps and study modern biogeochemical cycling and dynamics.

Quantifying the anthropogenic impact on ocean conditions by using high-resolution marine sediment records that span from the pre-Industrial period to present.

Pairing modern and paleoceanographic records to create the most comprehensive record of anthropogenic impacts on ocean systems.–>

“The ocean’s history is key to understanding its future. I use a combination of paleoceanographic archives and modern ocean observations to study natural and human-induced ocean changes.”


Zachary Zagon joined AOML’s Ocean Chemistry and Ecosystems as a University of Miami-Cooperative Institute Graduate Student Assistant. Zach will work with the Ocean Chemistry and Ecosystems Division’s Coral Group throughout 2023 as an intern in the Experimental Reef Laboratory.

Current Work

Perform coral husbandry tasks and lab maintenance in the Ocean Chemistry and Ecosystems Division’s Experimental Reef Laboratory. In addition, assist with project setup, data collection (IPAM, buoyant weight, DNA/RNA extractions, qPCR), and analysis for the recent SCTLD & Environmental Cofactor project.
