USA

Scott Noakes, Ph.D., is a marine scientist and geochemist with research interests primarily focused on the development of sensors for real-time in situ measurements of the marine environment. His work with sensors has extended into methane gas hydrate detection and carbon dioxide monitoring in the ocean, and he has worked to develop a system that can be used to map hydrate deposits in the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico. Scott also has led a marine paleontological research project producing evidence of two extinct Atlantic gray whales of Pleistocene age in coastal Georgia waters. He presently serves as Director of the Scientific Diving Program for the University System of Georgia. His current research interests include ocean acidification and its detection and measurement using surface and near-surface sensors.
