Understanding the ocean's changing chemistry

 | 

Alin, Simone

Ocean chemistry is changing faster right now than at any time over the past 50 million years. “We are fundamentally altering marine ecosystems,” says NOAA oceanographer Simone Alin, Ph.D. With her colleagues at NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL), Alin is responsible for monitoring the rapidly changing chemistry of seawater and understanding the ramifications for the world’s oceans, particularly the highly productive, fisheries-rich coastal waters off the west coast of North America.

Questioning rivers in the sky

Barnes, Elizabeth

Since the 1960s scientists have used the so-called "butterfly effect" to explain why we struggle to predict such extreme events with more than two weeks of advanced notice. But Elizabeth Barnes, Assistant Professor at Colorado State University, is pushing the envelope. Barnes likes making complex things simple, and with her team is turning the theory about Earth’s chaotic weather patterns on its head.

Barnes, John

As a physical scientist and station chief for the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory's Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, John Barnes' specialty is lidar (light detection and ranging), often referred to as laser radar, which he uses to identify and measure particles in the atmosphere.

Bender, Morris

A senior researcher at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) in Princeton, N.J., Morris Bender has been on the hurricane research team at GFDL since 1976, developing highly accurate models for hurricane forecasting and more recently exploring the influence of climate change on hurricane activity.
