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.
As director of the NOAA Auke Bay Laboratories in Juneau, Alaska, Phil Mundy is as passionate about his lab’s role in supporting stewardship of marine and coastal resources as he is about explaining the lab’s work to broader audiences.
