NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory
Carol Ladd completed her Ph.D. in physical oceanography from the University of Washington in Seattle in June 2000. Since that time, she has worked for the Fisheries Oceanography Coordinated Investigations (FOCI) group at NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory. Although trained as a physical oceanographer, she is particularly interested in the interdisciplinary aspects of oceanography, collaborating with chemists and biologists to investigate the influence of the physical environment on the ecosystem. Her research focuses on the Gulf of Alaska, the Aleutian Passes, and the eastern Bering Sea. Carol is contributing to the Exploring Groundfish Dynamics with Integrated Biophysical Models aspect of the Gulf of Alaska Project and she represents this component of the project on the Gulf of Alaska Board of Investigators (GABI).
