Denis Pierrot, AOML/CIMAS

Co-Chief Scientist of GOMECC-3 Cruise, NOAA AOML/CIMASIMG_3753

Bio:  I am originally French from Burgundy but I moved to the US in 1995. After getting my PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Miami, I joined Rik Wanninkhof’s group where I am in charge of the effort of measuring surface pCO2 from Volunteer Observing Ships. My last scientific cruise was about 15 years ago so we’ll see how this goes.

What I’m doing on this cruise: Besides problem solving as a co-chief scientist, I am also part of the carbonate group and will help with measurements of DIC, pCO2, pH and alkalinity.
