Join AltaSea as we welcome Dr. Burke Hales to talk to us about ocean carbon cycles!
Dr. Burke Hales is a professor of ocean ecology and biogeochemistry at Oregon State University. He earned degrees in chemical engineering and chemical oceanography at the University of Washington and served as a Department of Energy Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow in Climate Change at Columbia University before joining the faculty at Oregon State. His research focuses on the ocean’s carbon cycles at its boundaries: The seafloor, the air-sea interface, and the land-ocean margins. As a testament to his technical innovation in ocean science research, Hales is the inventor of the “Burke-o-Lator,” a system that has revolutionized shore-based ocean acidification monitoring. More recently, he is the principal investigator of PacWave, a grid-connected wave energy test facility.
