Barak Herut

Tel: 04 – 8565255

Senior Scientist

Ph.D. 1992, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel
At IOLR since 1991

Research interests:
Studies on marine pollution, chemistry of atmospheric aerosols, water geochemistry and chemical oceanography. Emphasis on transfer mechanisms of major and trace constituents from the atmosphere and land to the marine and other aquatic reservoirs, and their role in biogeochemical processes across the reservoirs.
