Corinne A. Hartin

Integrated Human-Earth SS Team


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.

Research Interests

  • chemical and physical oceanography
  • carbon-cycle
  • ocean acidification
  • climate

Education and Credentials

  • Ph.D. in Marine and Atmospheric Chemistry, University of Miami, Miami Fl, 2012
  • B.S. in Geology, Queens College, CUNY, Flushing, NY, 2006
