Pr Greg. Cutter, Old Dominion University, U.S.A.

 

Gregory (Greg) Cutter is a Professor of Oceanography in the Department of Ocean, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences at Old Dominion University, a public institution in Virginia, USA, where he has been since 1982. His research interests are the biogeochemical processes affecting trace element speciation and distributions in natural waters and sediments, the air-sea transport and exchange of gases and trace elements, developing new paleoceanographic tracers, and perfecting analytical methods for aquatic chemistry. Otherwise, you’ll find him racing his sailboat in the northwest Atlantic or motorcycling to remote parts of the planet. He has been involved in the development of the international GEOTRACES program since its earliest days in 2001, started the Standards and Intercalibration Committee in 2005, and led the 2008 and 2009 Intercalibration Cruises that developed and tested many of the sampling and sample handling methods used in today’s GEOTRACES cruises. He also helped to design and test the US GEOTRACES CTD and carousel that are now commercially available from Sea-Bird Scientific (USA) and its associated winch, Vectran conducting cable, A-frame, and clean laboratory van.
