Abstract:

I have been an active member of the group of ONR SecNavCNO Chairs in Oceanographic Sciences since being selected in 2008. The formal duration of the ONR Chairs grant was four years. For recent years, I have enjoyed no-cost extensions of this grant. I have continued to participate in Chairs meeting with the multiple Chiefs of Naval Research. These meetings are occasions for the Chairs to learn about ONR concerns and provide feedback on issues, such as opportunities and priorities for Arctic Ocean research. I will continue to participate at the pleasure of ONR. The accomplishments of this grant include support of two graduate students, Kevin Taylor and Nathan Lauffenburger, whom I supervised. Both were awarded MS degrees by the UW School of Oceanography and are currently employed in ocean studies at APL-JHU and NOAA, respectively. These students participated in and used data from ONR DRI projects, including QPEU for Taylor and OKMC for Lauffenburger.
