He has conducted over a dozen cruises in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea and is currently studying the economic impacts of ocean acidification on Alaska’s fisheries.
* Dr. Richard A. Feely, a Senior fellow at the NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory in Seattle. He also holds an affiliate full professor faculty position at the University of Washington School of Oceanography. His major research areas are carbon cycling in the oceans and ocean acidification processes. He was awarded the Department of Commerce Gold Award in 2006 for research on ocean acidification. In November 2010, he was awarded the Heinz Award for his pioneering research on ocean acidification.
Welch also hosted a Reddit AMA (Ask me Anything) this morning.
