© Copyright © 2020 Hope, Hewitt, Pilditch, Savage and Thrush. Benthic diatoms are a high-quality food resource providing essential fatty acids to benthic grazers. Different stressors may alter the proportion of diatoms and other microalgae and thus c...

Interactions between sediment microbial ecology and physical dynamics drive heterogeneity in contextually similar depositional systems (2020)
Journal Article
Hope, J. A., Malarkey, J., Baas, J. H., Peakall, J., Parsons, D. R., Manning, A. J., …Paterson, D. M. (in press). Interactions between sediment microbial ecology and physical dynamics drive heterogeneity in contextually similar depositional systems. Limnology and Oceanography, https://doi.org/10.1002/lno.11461

This study focuses on the interactions between sediment stability and biological and physical variables that influence the erodibility across different habitats. Sampling at short-term temporal scales illustrated the persistence of the microphytobent...

Biomediation of submarine sediment gravity flow dynamics (2019)
Journal Article
Craig, M. J., Baas, J. H., Amos, K. J., Strachan, L. J., Manning, A. J., Paterson, D. M., …Baker, M. L. (2020). Biomediation of submarine sediment gravity flow dynamics. Geology, 48(1), 72-76. https://doi.org/10.1130/G46837.1

Sediment gravity flows are the primary process by which sediment and organic carbon are transported from the continental margin to the deep ocean. Up to 40% of the total marine organic carbon pool is represented by cohesive extracellular polymeric su... Read More about Biomediation of submarine sediment gravity flow dynamics.

Integrating field and laboratory approaches for ripple development in mixed sand–clay–EPS (2019)
Journal Article
Baas, J. H., Baker, M. L., Malarkey, J., Bass, S. J., Manning, A. J., Hope, J. A., …Thorne, P. D. (2019). Integrating field and laboratory approaches for ripple development in mixed sand–clay–EPS. Sedimentology, 66(7), 2749-2768. https://doi.org/10.1111/sed.12611

The shape and size of sedimentary bedforms play a key role in the reconstruction of sedimentary processes in modern and ancient environments. Recent laboratory experiments have shown that bedforms in mixed sand–clay develop at a slower rate and ofte...

Bedform migration in a mixed sand and cohesive clay intertidal environment and implications for bed material transport predictions (2018)
Journal Article
Lichtman, I. D., Baas, J. H., Amoudry, L. O., Thorne, P. D., Malarkey, J., Hope, J. A., …Ye, L. (2018). Bedform migration in a mixed sand and cohesive clay intertidal environment and implications for bed material transport predictions. Geomorphology, 315, 17-32. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.geomorph.2018.04.016

Many coastal and estuarine environments are dominated by mixtures of non-cohesive sand and cohesive mud. The migration rate of bedforms, such as ripples and dunes, in these environments is important in determining bed material transport rates to info...
