Howarth, Robert Warren

David R. Atkinson Professor of Ecology and Environmental Biology


I am a biogeochemist and ecosystem scientist, an active research scientist who also enjoys teaching and is deeply involved in the environmental management and policy communities in the State, nationally, and internationally. My training was in oceanography, and much of my research still focuses on coastal marine ecosystems. However, I also work on freshwater systems (both rivers and lakes) and on large river basins. I teach a variety of courses at Cornell including:BioEE 1610 Ecology and the Environment, BioEE 3610 Advanced Ecology, BioEE 4780 Ecosystem Biology, and BioEE 6680 Principles of Biogeochemistry.
