Her research interests are in biogeochemistry and its application to ecology, soil biochemistry, and terrestrial carbon cycling. Dr. Trumbore was an author of the IPCC’s report on land use, land-use change, and forestry. She is a fellow of the American Geophysical Union, a former president of its biogeochemistry section, and has served on AGU Committees on Global Environmental Change and Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology.
Karl K. Turekian is Sterling Professor of Geology and Geophysics and director (until January 1, 2004) of the Institute for Biospheric Studies at Yale University. He is also director of the Center for the Study of Global Change of that institute. His research focuses on applications of isotope geochemistry to marine, atmosphere, terrestrial, and hydrologic environments. He also has a long-standing interest in climate change and has been a member of many NRC committees concerned with that topic. Recent examples include the Committee on Global Change Research, the Ocean Studies Board, and the Water Science and Technology Board. Dr. Turekian is a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
Carl Wunsch is Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Physical Oceanography at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research focuses on ocean observing technologies, and the general circulation of the ocean and its implications for climate change. Dr. Wunsch has chaired a number of ocean science advisory groups, such as the NRC Ocean Studies Board and the International Steering Group for the World Ocean Circulation Experiment. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, a foreign member of the Royal Society, a recipient of the American Geophysical Union’s Macelwane Award and Maurice Ewing Medal, and the American Meteorological Society’s Henry Stommel Medal.
Anne M. Linn, senior program officer, has been with the NRC Board on Earth Sciences and Resources since 1993. In addition to staffing a wide variety of studies on geophysics, Earth observing systems, and data policy, she directs the U.S. World Data Center Coordination Office. She is also the secretary of the International Council for Science (ICSU) Panel on World Data Centers. Prior to joining the staff of the National Academies, Dr. Linn was a visiting scientist at the Carnegie Institution of Washington and a postdoctoral geochemist at the University of California, Berkeley. She holds a Ph.D. in geology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and an M.S. and B.S. in geology from Texas A&M University.
