Luis Laglera is Guest Professor at the Department of Chemistry from May 17 – 28, 2021

Luis Laglera is Marine Scientist and Professor at the Department of Chemistry at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB). He is a member of the group FI-TRACE (Flow Injection and Trace Analysis) at UIB and his research interests are focused on the study of the biogeochemical cycles of trace metals in ocean, coastal and estuarine waters (with emphasis in iron, copper, lead, cobalt and mercury), and in particular in the characterization and quantification of natural organic ligands.

Teaching at BOKU:
Advanced analytical methods in chemical oceanography

771005 VO, 3 ECTS, May 19 - 25 2021

The lecture series is open for registration via BOKUonline.

The lectures will address basics of (chemical) oceanography, biological and physical effects on ocean chemistry and their impact on the chemical characteristics and bio-geochemical cycling of trace elements in oceanic waters. Advanced analytical methods including remote detection in oceanography will be presented. “Hot Topics” such as the solubility of oxygen and carbon dioxide and the effect on ocean acidification, nutrient depletion and eutrophication, respectively, as well as the ocean pollution, in particular by emerging pollutants such as micro plastics etc. and their consequences on the aquatic environment will be discussed.
