My research bridges the gulf between understanding what microbes do at the centimeter scale and the importance of those processes at the ecosystem scale.  Currently, I study how climate change or ecosystem restoration will affect biogeochemical time lags.  Time lags of focus include the transport of nitrogen into streams,  the influence of sulfate introduced to lakes via aluminum sulfate additions, and the creation of GHGs from soils.

Dr. Loecke's research examines how ecosystem management and environmental variability influences soil, water, and air quality.  This allows him to work at the intersections of food, water, climate, and energy.  Currently, he is focusing on the causes and consequences extreme biogeochemical events, such as how storms affect water quality and greenhouse gas emitted from soils.  Additionally, he collaborates with scientists from across the county to estimate the role of soil in the global carbon cycle.
