Visiting Scientist from Portugal


Alexandra Cravo

We would like to welcome Alexandra Cravo from the University of Algarve in Portugal. She is a visiting scientist that will be spending a nine month sabbatical at CMOP.

Dr. Cravo received her Ph. D. in Ocean Sciences from the School of Ocean Sciences at the University of Wales- Bangor in 1996. Her scientific research has been focused on chemical processes in estuaries and coastal zones, addressing environmental issues such as eutrophication, environmental quality assessment, marine and aquatic pollution/ecotoxicology, and environmental chemistry. Dr. Cravo established collaboration with the Physical Oceanography group, within the scope of Oceanographic issues in the south Portuguese coast, particularly the chemical oceanographic processes, associated with coastal upwelling and counter currents; chemical characterization of water masses and mass transport and exchanges across and along-shore.

You will find some of her publications listed on ReserachGate. If you are interested in exploring a research collaboration, send her an email at
