Jessica Cross, Ph.D.

NOAA/PMEL Research Oceanographer

Ph.D., Chemical Oceanography, University of Alaska-Fairbanks, 2013
B.S., Chemistry, Rhodes College, 2008

Research Interests:
My current research focuses on carbon biogeochemistry and ocean acidification in Arctic regions, and especially along the Alaskan coast. The main goal is to better understand how acidification processes interact with natural biogeochemical cycles, and eventually to detect geochemical and biological impacts of acidification in marine systems. I conduct research across a variety of platforms, including ship-based measurements, moorings, and mobile autonomous platforms like gliders and drones, through NOAA's Innovative Technology for Arctic Exploration Program. I also broadly participate in the Arctic research community through the North American Carbon Program, the Ocean Carbon Biogeochemistry Program, the Pacific Arctic Group, and the Interagency Research Policy Committee collaboration teams.
