As a climate geochemist, my fundamental interests lie in the roles the oceans play in planetary evolution and global change. In our current era, at the dawn of the Anthropocene, ocean biogeochemistry and its impact on the global climate are changing, and my research attempts to understand the causes and effects of those changes and how they feed back into the climate.
Some of my more interesting projects include:
Chair of The Centre for Ocean Climate Chemistry, a consortium of scientists at IOS who conduct research in marine biogeochemistry. Kyle Simpson runs the centre, overseeing a team of salty chemists who can measure or fix anything: Mike Arychuck, Glenn Cooper, and Marty Davelaar. Members of the COCC include: Jim Christian, Debby Ianson, Sophie Johannessen, Angelica Peña, Andrew Ross, Nadja Steiner, Svein Vagle, and Bill Williams.
As a team, this group also collects surface and water-column carbon data in the IOS Line P and Arctic time series.
