Dr. Peter Morton


Next Science Café to focus on marine trace metal biogeochemistry

Dr. Peter Morton, a visiting assistant research faculty in oceanography at Florida State University, has been a part of 10 major oceanographic research cruises in the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans. He’s currently working on three research projects funded by the National Science Foundation to study the interactive influence of marine microorganisms and trace metals in the Arctic, Indian and Southern oceans.

On Tuesday, Nov. 28, Dr. Morton will share his research experiences during Thomas University’s next Science Café when he presents “Arctic Geotraces.”

Dr. Morton holds a doctorate in oceanography and a master’s degree in chemistry, both from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. He also has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.

Thomas University’s Science Café is an opportunity for conversations with scientists about current science topics. Each event begins with a reception with the speaker in the lobby of Smith-Bonvillian at 6 p.m. followed by the presentation at 6:30 p.m. There is no admission charge, and the public is welcome.
