Scientists

The number of scientists engaged in studying climate change is growing exponentially. This page is designed to help you identify climate scientists conducting research in your region and in specific subject areas. All information about climate scientists is derived from publically available sources. Tribes and non-tribal entities engaging in climate science partnerships may also seek information on protection traditional knowledges in those research initiatives. Resources that may be of assistance include Guidelines for Considering Traditional Knowledges in Climate Change Initiatives and the role of tribal Institutional Review Boards. An example is this Institutional Review Board Manual for the Northwest Indian College.

Allen J. Milligan Oregon State University, Phytoplankton Ecophysiology Lab, University of British Columbia

Application of cellular-scale molecular and biochemical studies of microalgae, bacteria and corals to environmental questions about ecosystem function and global change. This work is directed towards understanding the physiological mechanisms by which the cycling of elements are influenced by environmental variables. My overall research goal is to apply cellular-scale molecular and biochemical studies of phytoplankton to oceanographic questions about production and function of the oceanic ecosystem in the past, present and future.

Alan Hamlet Skagit Climate Science Consortium

His research over the last 10 years has focused on the impacts of climate variability and change on rivers and water resources systems in the western U.S., with a particular emphasis on the Columbia River basin in the Pacific Northwest.

Alan Bloomberg Stevens Institute of Technology; Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN)

His research is directed towards understanding and predicting the flow processes operating in rivers, lakes, estuaries and the oceans. It has contributed to the creation of ocean observing and forecasting systems which are used for environmental studies, surface vessel operations and as a basis for maritime security. His latest work is to understand and predict the impacts of extreme climate-driven events on urban coasts and to create innovative adaptations to protect people and property - a new discipline called adaptative engineering.

Adam Wei University of British Columbia

Dr.Wei's key research interests are eco-hydrological processes; in-stream wood ecology and its relations with channel morphology, aquatic habitat and carbon budget; forest disturbance and watershed processes; application of GIS and remote sensing on watershed hydrology and management; surface water and groundwater integration; and long-term soil productivity and forest ecosystem modeling.
