Research Interests:

Dr. Scinto's research focuses on the biogeochemistry of freshwater wetlands, especially the cycling and impacts of anthropogenic nutrients. He is particularly interested in physicochemical changes brought about by photosynthesis and respiration of cyanobacterial mats and the effects these changes have on the geochemistry of surface water. He is also interested in the functioning of algal/limestone systems for the removal of P from surface waters.
