Beverly Johnson’s research interests involve using geochemical analyses to explore environmental change over a range of temporal and spatial scales. She specializes in organic and stable isotope geochemistry, and the use of stable carbon, nitrogen and sulfur isotopes in modern and ancient organic matter. Bev’s research includes investigate problems such as the history of sea level rise and coastal storms (otherwise known as paleotempestology) as recorded in salt marsh sediments, the size of carbon stocks stored in coastal sediments, methane emissions in altered and recently restored salt marshes. Bev is a member of the international scientific working group on coastal blue carbon, and studies the potential of carbon storage and sequestration in salt marshes, seagrass beds, and mangroves as a means for mitigating climate change.
