Research Focus

In the research sector the Department have undertaken investigations on

  • •Nutrient dynamics in the estuarine, coastal and mangrove systems
  • •Distribution of chemical constituents – major ions, trace metals, trace organics and biogeoorganics – in coastal and    estuarine systems
  • •Chemistry of mud banks
  • •Phase exchange studies of trace metals, pesticides and biogeoorganics
  • •Chemo toxicity of trace metals, pesticides, etc.
  • • Chemo kinetics and modelling
  • •Chemical investigations on the mangrove systems.
  • •Natural products – Marine bioactive compounds, carbohydrates, etc.
  • •Marine drugs and medicinal chemistry
  • •Mangroves – chemistry of the mangrove ecosystems
  • •Distribution and dynamics of trace metals, rare earth metals, nutrients, pesticides and       other organic compounds.
  • •Modelling of aquatic systems
  • •Marine Aerosols
  • •Radiochemical studies
