CMS Research :: MACRL

The Marine and Atmospheric Chemistry Research Laboratory (MACRL) at UNCW, located within the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, investigates rainwater-seawater interactions and sediment-seawater exchange processes. MACRL is studying the potential impacts of global warming and sea level rise as well as trace metal speciation in estuarine and atmospheric waters, and photochemically mediated processes as they impact environmental systems. MACRL is also investigating the environmental occurrence and fate of pharmaceutical and personal care products in the marine environment.
