As a part of a team of researchers in the Ecosystem Sciences Division, the Oceanographer will assess ecological impacts to the coral reef ecosystems in the U.S. Pacific Islands (Hawaii Archipelago, Marianas Archipelago, American Samoa, and the Pacific Remote Islands Areas) from multiple environmental drivers with a focus on local warming and changes in the coastal carbonate system.
DUTIES: Applies advanced statistical techniques to analyze and interpret oceanographic data with the purpose of examining the relationship between oceanographic processes and coral reef ecosystem dynamics. Prepares technical reports and scientific manuscripts summarizing results of these analyses and presents findings at national and international meetings. Designs and develops software tools and data management procedures to analyze, integrate, and visualize ecosystem data. Assists with planning and implementing oceanographic surveys and field operations.
