Dr. Nsikak U. Benson

Associate Professor

Nsikak Benson holds a Ph.D. degree in Marine Environmental Chemistry. His research interest is primarily on investigating the exchange of marine trace gases between the atmosphere and the ocean. He is interested in developing a quantitative understanding of the cycling of carbon, nutrients and other elements in ocean systems as well as interactions with ocean biology and anthropogenic impacts. He was awarded the Junior Fulbright Fellowship by the US Department of State to conduct a research on large-scale interannual carbon dioxide air-sea interaction and climate change in the North Atlantic Ocean at the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences, University of Wisconsin, USA between 2008 and 2009.
