Details for: Thomas Bianchi


Thomas S. Bianchi is currently a full professor and holder of the Jon and Beverly Thompson Chair in Geological Sciences at the University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida. His general areas of expertise are organic geochemistry, biogeochemical dynamics of aquatic food chains, carbon cycling in estuarine and coastal ecosystems, and biochemical markers of colloidal, particulate, dissolved and sedimentary organic carbon. He has worked in estuarine systems around the world with particular emphasis on coastal systems ranging from large deltas (e.g., Mississippi River/Louisiana, Amazon, Yangtze) to wetland systems over the past 20 years. Some of this work has focused on the fate and transport of organic carbon source inputs to the Louisiana shelf, using chemical biomarkers as source indicators, as well as recent work on the paleo-reconstruction of hypoxia events on the shelf and relationship between carbon cycling in the Mississippi River plume and hypoxia. He has published over 155 articles in refereed journals and was lead co-editor (Bianchi, Pennock and Twilley) of a book entitled “Biogeochemistry of Gulf Mexico Estuaries,” published in 1999, by John Wiley & Sons; a sole-authored book entitled “Biogeochemistry of Estuaries” published in 2007, by Oxford University Press; a co-authors book entitled “Hypoxia in the northern Gulf of Mexico”, published in 2010 by Springer Press, and his most recent co-authored book by Bianchi and Canuel, published in 2011 entitled “Chemical Biomarkers in Aquatic Ecosystems” published by Princeton University Press and “Biogeochemical Dynamics at Major River Coastal Interfaces: Linkages with Global Climate Change” published in 2014 by Cambridge University Press. He currently is working on another sole-authored book entitled “River Deltas: Sea-Level Rise and Cities in Peril”, for Oxford University Press” and an edited book where he is senior editor entitled “Chemical Oceanography of the Gulf of Mexico, to be published in 2016 by Texas A&M University Press. He is s joint-managing editor of Estuarine and Coastal Shelf Science, and also serves an Associate Editor for the journals Marine Chemistry, Geochimica Cosmochimica Acta.
