Karl Attard


I am a broadly interested in productivity of aquatic ecosystems. Most of my research focuses on shallow benthic habitats such as seagrass, macroalgae, and mussel beds. I investigate primary production and respiration processes using a range of techniques, which range from habitat-scale fluxes using aquatic eddy covariance, to detailed small-scale measurements using microsensors developed in-house at Nordcee.

Currently I have a joined Postdoctoral position between SDU and the Tvärminne Zoological Station in Finland.

Eksempler på tidligere bachelor- og specialeprojekter

  • Biodiversity and oxygen dynamics within seagrass and macroalgae canopies in the Baltic Sea (speciale, 2018-2019)

Mulige kommende bachelor- og specialeprojekter

I am always happy to discuss potential projects, so please get in touch. I am also keen to discuss projects with students interested in geospatial data and modelling.

Here are some ideas:

  • Primary production and nutrient cycling associated with shallow invertebrate reefs (Mytilus edulis)
  • Oxygen dynamics in canopies of the brown macroalga Fucus vesiculosus
