Abstract: In 2009, the Federal Ocean Acidification Research and Monitoring Act called for a program within NOAA to monitor, research and understand the impacts of ocean acidification to better prepare society.The NOAA Ocean Acidification Programs is celebrating ten years of interdisciplinary science conducted across NOAA, academic institutions and industry. During this presentation, we’ll reflect on the important questions and information we had ten years ago, what we’ve learned, and where we’re going with our NOAA partners.

Bio(s): Dr. Gledhill serves as the Deputy Director of the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program office in Silver Spring, MD. Previously he was an associate scientist with the UM/RSMAS Cooperative Institute of Marine & Atmospheric Sciences (CIMAS) with NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratory Ocean Chemistry Division where he advanced ocean acidification research primarily related to monitoring and understanding the process of ocean acidification within coral reef ecosystems. He was instrumental in establishing ocean acidification time-series in La Parguera, Puerto Rico, and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. He also has worked on the development of a satellite-based ocean acidification data synthesis products for the Greater Caribbean Region.. Gledhill has also been a contributor to numerous strategic planning documents related to ocean acidification within NOAA including the recent NOAA Ocean, Coastal, and Great Lakes Research Plan. Gledhill received his M.S. and Ph.D. from the Department of Oceanography at Texas A&M University in 2005 where he primarily investigated carbonate mineral kinetics in complex electrolyte solutions as well the sediment biogeochemistry associated with methane clathrates in the Northern Gulf of Mexico.
