Peter G. Brewer an ocean chemist.

There is not only a while flowers tree-covered mountains in our Earth there is an also a vast Blue Oceanic floor on earth. And they are scientists who are studying this oceanic floor. So there in the study of chemical composition and we know processes of the ocean as Marine chemistry. We also know it as Ocean chemistry. In this scientist study about the cyclic process of organic and inorganic carbon, nutrients and trace elements. Out of many scientists, one scientist is Peter G. Brewer.

Peter G. Brewer is an ocean chemist. Also, he works as Senior Scientist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). 

Peter dedicated 24 years of his life with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as a researcher. He got promoted as Senior Scientist. From 1981 to 1983, he performed the duties as Program Manager for Ocean Chemistry at the National Science Foundation. Being a member of SCOR and as Vice-Chair of JGOFS, he acted as a Lead Author. The topic was the 2005 IPCC Special Report on CO2 Capture and Storage. From 1994 to 1996, he was serviceable as president of the Ocean Sciences Section of AGU.

Awards and honours

Peter gained the NSF Sustained Superior Performance Award from 1981 to 1983. So, he played a part in over 40 deep-sea cruises. Thus, peter has performed the duties as Chief Scientist on well over 100 ROV dives. Also, he acted as Chief Scientist on major expeditions worldwide. In 2016, he became the recipient of Maurice Ewing Medal awarded, of the American Geophysical Union and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

However, he has a membership of the Vice-President Gore’s Environmental Task Force. In 2010, Xiamen University gave him the Zheng Zhong Distinguished Visiting Fellowship. Also, he got an appointment as an independent scientist to look over the research work toward the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil release.

His interest includes various research works. Few topics are the ocean geochemistry of the greenhouse gases. In 1991, he performed the duties of President and Chief Executive Officer at MBARI. He also works on the geochemistry of gas hydrates, the bio-geochemical effects of the growing oceanic fossil-fuel CO2 signal. Peter was serviceable as co-Chair of the NSF Decadal Report Ocean Sciences at the New Millennium. 

There are lists of activities we can do to save the ocean and marine wildlife. Are you taking pledge to do your best for oceans?
