Dr. Markus Kienast

Associate Professor of Oceanography, Dalhousie University

We are studying the geological record of ocean and climate change. Our most significant contributions to research revolve around three topics, 1) environmental changes in the tropical Pacific during the late Quaternary, 2) nitrogen isotope evidence for past changes in the oceanic N cycling and inventory, and 3) improving our understanding of paleoceanographic proxies.

Dr. Douglas Wallace

Canada Excellence Research Chair in Ocean Science and Technology; Professor of Oceanography, Dalhousie University

I am a Chemical Oceanographer and I head up a group of scientists, engineers, postdocs and students who are examining ocean change: specifically, changes in the cycling of carbon, oxygen and nitrogen both within the ocean and between the ocean and the atmosphere. I also am Scientific Director for the Marine Environmental Observation, Prediction and Response Network of Centres of Excellence (www.meopar.ca).
