Corinne A. Hartin

Integrated Human-Earth SS Team
Earth Scientist


Corinne Hartin's research focuses on the development of Hector, a reduced-form climatecarbon-cycle model. In particular she is interested in modeling and projecting changes in ocean acidification and calcium carbonate saturations under differing climates. Prior to coming to JGCRI, she obtained her Ph.D. from the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, focusing on large scale ocean circulation of mode and intermediate waters.
