Dr Tom Trull

Marine Biogeochemist

Contact details:


I received my PhD in 1989 from the MIT/Woods Hole Joint Program and joined the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre in 1993. I moved from the University of Tasmania to CSIRO in 2013 and continue as the Carbon Program leader in the ACE CRC (since 1997).

My research interests are in marine biogeochemistry, especially uptake of CO2 by the Southern Ocean and its transformations in the foodweb.

I lead the Southern Ocean Time Series Facility of the Integrated Marine Observing System ( which focuses on autonomous observations of climate and carbon cycle processes using mooring, profiling floats, and other technologies.
