Research interests

Prof. Vincent Gauci is a Birmingham Professorial Fellow in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences. He is interested in the biogeochemistry of carbon-dense terrestrial ecosystems such as forests, wetlands, peatlands, and forested wetlands and peatlands. In particular he is interested in how these ecosystems interact with the atmosphere through the exchange of greenhouse gases with a particular focus on trace greenhouse gases such as methane and N2O. He is also interested in fluvial losses of carbon from these ecosystems and agroecosystems and, as with his interest in GHG exchange, a unifying theme is the response of these exchanges to various agents of global change including atmospheric CO2 concentration change, pollutant exposure and deposition and land use change.  He has managed projects across Central and South America, Southeast Asia as well as Europe.
