Course description

Radioactivity In Our Ocean: Fukushima & Its Impact On The Pacific

Jay Cullen, PhD, Department of , UVic

Friday, Oct. 14: 12:30 to 1:45 pm

Dr. Jay T. Cullen grew up in the Kawartha Lakes area of central Ontario in Peterborough and developed an interest in lakes and oceans early on. He took his BSc (Honours) in Biology from McGill University and PhD in Chemical Oceanography from Rutgers University. After a postdoctoral scholarship at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts he has been at the University of Victoria ince 2003 where he is a Professor in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences. He has helped to develop sensitive analytical techniques to measure metals and contaminants in natural waters. Through a combination of analytical chemistry, radioisotope tracer studies and collaboration with microbial physiologists his research program aims to understand the distribution, chemical speciation and fate of metals in the ocean and the influence of human activities on the health of marine ecosystems. In 2016 he was recognized by UVic for his education and outreach activities with the Craigdarroch Research Award for Excellence in Knowledge Mobilization. This talk provides an update on the Integrated Fukushima Ocean Radionuclide Monitoring (InFORM) Project.
