Jacqueline Grebmeier is a Research Professor at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. Her research is focused on pelagic-benthic coupling on continental shelves in the Arctic, benthic ecology, invertebrate zoology, contaminant distributions, and high latitude oceanography. She has participated in over 40 oceanographic cruises on both US and foreign ships, many as Chief Scientist. She is the current U.S. Delegate and Vice-President of the International Arctic Science Committee and member of the Arctic Ocean Sciences Board.
This ASLO Arctic lecture was based on an invited plenary presentation Dr. Grebmeier gave at the 2004 ASLO Oceans meeting entitled "Biological Implications of Arctic Change to Carbon Shelf-Basin Exchange."
