URI oceanographers receive $900,000 from NSF to study carbon cycling in Arctic Ocean

-breaker Healy. The samples will then be returned to GSO for analysis.

Campbells research concerns planktonic food web interactions in the Western Arctic shelf and basin regions. He and a team of scientists from Oregon State University and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution will analyze the impact of zooplankton feeding processes on the fluxes and exchanges of carbon in these waters. The analysis will help them understand how changing ecosystem structure, such as might occur during climate change, will alter the functioning of planktonic food webs, the basic food source in Arctic Ocean ecosystems.

A resident of Kingston, Moran received a B.Sc. in chemistry from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and a Ph.D. in chemical oceanography from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. His research at GSO, where he is an associate professor of oceanography, focuses on radionuclides as tracers of scavenging and particle cycling, marine colloids, solid-solution interactions of trace metals in seawater, groundwater input to coastal waters, and natural and artificial radionuclides in Arctic rivers and ocean basins.

Campbell, an assistant marine research scientist, received a B.S. in natural resources and a Ph.D. in oceanography from the University of Rhode Island. He studies zooplankton vital rate processes, including feeding, growth, and reproduction. He combines laboratory studies and field measurements to quantify these processes and determine the role of zooplankton in planktonic ecosystems. He is a resident of Narragansett.
