Leading in Quest for Ocean Solutions


Georgia Tech Leading in the Quest for Ocean Solutions

Georgia Tech researchers are working to identify, mitigate, and even reverse the effects of climate change on the world’s oceans.

When Dean Susan Lozier was first drawn to physical oceanography she was one of just a handful of women in the field – and she says women could hardly be found on research vessels. Now she leads the 60,000-member American Geophysical Union in their effort to understand the past, present, and future of Earth, our oceans, and all of the ecosystems affected in between. Lozier is also leading and inspiring a new generation of scientists to be part of that charge – helming the College of Sciences at Georgia Tech and a major NSF research program.

Georgia Tech Professor Manu Di Lorenzo launched Georgia Tech’s Ocean Science and Engineering program in 2017, and less than five years later, Tech has become one of America’s leading institutions partnering to research and develop sustainable solutions aimed at exploring, understanding, and harnessing ocean solutions to support a healthier planet and people.
