Jerry McManus (PhD, Columbia University) is a member of the Geochemistry Division of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, and is Professor and Chair of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences of Columbia University. His research as a paleoceanographer primarily uses deep-sea sediments and is focused on reconstructing natural variability in the Earth’s climate and the large-scale ocean circulation, with a special focus on the role that the ocean plays in abrupt climate change. Jerry has spent nearly a year of his life at sea and is involved in research projects assessing climatic and oceanographic variability recorded in sediments from far-flung locales in every ocean basin, including the North Atlantic and Iberian margin.
