Sea Secrets Lecture Series 2019 with Margaret Leinen, Ph.D.

Margaret Leinen, Ph.D.

Director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Vice Chancellor for Marine Science at the University of California at San Diego

Big Science and Big Ideas

A pioneering paleoceanographer, paleoclimatologist, and national science leader, Dr. Margaret Leinen will discuss how ocean observations lead to new ways of thinking about our planet. She will share her perspective on her groundbreaking research and broad administrative experience, which includes leading early deep-sea expeditions; discovering the dramatic effects hydrothermal vents have on the sea’s basic chemistry; and overseeing a study that shaped our understanding of how the ocean absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and transports it to deep waters and sediments on the ocean floor. Leinen helped to develop new observation capabilities and research vessels that enabled a long-term research presence in the deep ocean.  As a director and vice chancellor of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and a U.S. State Department Science Envoy,  she continues to be at the forefront of exploring solutions and collaborations across disciplines and countries to address the most pressing problems affecting our oceans.

Leinen is a former president of the American Geophysical Union, the largest geoscience society in the world, and has also served as president of The Oceanography Society, chair of the American Association for the Advancement of Science Section on Atmospheric and Hydrospheric Science, assistant director for geosciences at the National Science Foundation, vice chair of the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme, chair of the U.S. Global Change Research Program, and vice chair of the U.S. Climate Change Science Program.
