Lionel Carter

Professor, Antarctic Research Center, Victoria University
New Zealand

Lionel Carter is Professor of Marine Geology at Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand. Trained in geology and oceanography at the universities of Auckland and British Columbia, he has undertaken research in the North Atlantic, Pacific and Southern oceans. He helped set up major international projects including Ocean Drilling Program Leg 181 and the MARGINS "Source to Sink" initiative. Much of his research centres on deciphering marine geological records to identify changes in ocean/climate. This research has helped develop observational and numerical models that aid prediction of potential environmental responses to the present phase of warming climate. Expertise gained in his marine research is applied to marine engineering projects, in particular the protection of submarine fibre-optic cables that underpin the internet and international communications. He is currently the Marine Environmental Advisor for the International Cable Protection Committee. In 2003 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand.
