Research Lines


Muntsa Roca Martí is a postdoctoral researcher interested in the ocean biological carbon pump (BCP), a mechanism that strongly influences atmospheric CO2 concentrations, and marine biogeochemical cycles and food webs. Muntsa conducted her PhD at ICTA-UAB and has 5 years of postdoctoral experience abroad at the Edith Cowan University (Australia), the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (USA), and Dalhousie University (Canada). Since 2023, Muntsa is back at ICTA-UAB with the objective to better constrain the magnitude of the BCP in a changing ocean by bringing together traditional and emerging methods across different disciplines.

Key Publications



"My main research interest is understanding the role of marine ecosystems in oceanic carbon sequestration by constraining the sinking of particulate organic carbon from the ocean surface to the ocean interior and its spatial and temporal variability."
