The Rahav Microbial Ecology and Biological Oceanography lab is part of the Israel Oceanographic and Limnological Research Institute, Haifa, Israel.
Our group's main research interests lie in the fields of Biological Oceanography, Atmospheric-Marine Processes and Microbial Ecology. Our study involves the use of molecular and physiological approaches, stable and radioisotopes, flow-cytometry and pigment analyses, in diverse environmental samples such as seawater, estuaries, sediments and aerosols.
An over-arching goal of our group is to better understand spatiotemporal dynamics in phytoplankton, cyanobacteria and heterotrophic bacteria followed by human-induced and natural stressors.
