Carbon cycling in the oceans and ocean acidification processes


Dr. Richard Feely is the group leader of the Ocean Carbon Group at the NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory in Seattle, WA. He has more than forty years of experience working with large-oceanographic data sets for the study of long-term changes in the ocean carbon system. He is the co-chair of the U.S. CLIVAR/CO2 Repeat Hydrography Program, and has published more than 220 peer-reviewed publications on the carbon cycle in the oceans, including his most recent research on ocean acidification processes in the South Pacific, including the Southern Ocean.

For the SOCCOM project, Dr. Feely will continue his research on the development of algorithms for DIC, pH, and aragonite and calcite saturation for use with the ARGO float data in order to study temporal changes in the ocean carbon parameters.
