Drs. Emily Osbourne and Shannon Meseck will discuss the NOAA Ocean Acidification Research Plan, which outlines research goals both nationally and for the Mid-Atlantic region over the next decade.
Dr. Emily Osborne is a scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and works currently within the research branch of the agency for the Ocean Acidification Program. Since joining NOAA in 2017, she has served as an editor and author for several international and national climate assessments, worked to develop decadal agency-wide and interagency research strategies, and published peer-reviewed original research on ocean and climate science. Emily earned her PhD in Marine Science from the University of South Carolina in 2016 and a BS in Geology from the College of Charleston in 2012. Her research expertise is in developing paleo-proxies using the fossil record preserved on the seafloor to understand ocean conditions of the past but her scientific interests span a broad range of global change issues.
Dr. Shannon Meseck is a research scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Marine Fisheries Laboratory (NOAA/NMFS) in Milford, CT. Since joining NOAA in 2002, she has served as a research examining environmental effects on marine bivalves. In 2009, she has worked on how ocean acidification affects a variety of marine organisms including phytoplankton, bivalves, and fish. She has worked to develop decadal agency-wide and interagency research strategies, and published peer-reviewed original research on ocean and climate science. Shannon earned her PhD in Oceanography from Old Dominion University in 2002and a BS in Environmental Science/Chemistry from the SUNY Plattsburgh in 1997.
