inctAmbTropic II – Honorary Lecturer

O inctAmbtropic II co-patrocina juntamente com o programa CAPES-IODP (Projeto Geohazards) a vinda ao Brasil do prof. André Droxler, que durante o meses de Janeiro e Fevereiro de 2018 estará ministrado palestras e mini-cursos nas Universidades Federais do Rio Grande do Norte, Pernambuco e Bahia. A vinda do prof. Droxler foi uma iniciativa da profa. Helenice Vital (UFRN) membro do comitê gestor do inctAmbTropic II.

A programação resumida está apresentada abaixo juntamente com o resumé do prof. Droxler.

 

Droxler

Professor André W. Droxler (Ph.D.)

Rice University – D of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences – Houston, TX (USA)

I am a professor in the Department of Earth Science and currently the Track Director of the Science Master’s Program – Subsurface Geoscience. My research has focused on studying the morphology of and the sediments accumulating on slopes and basin floors surrounding coral reefs and carbonate platforms. Over the past 30 years, I have conducted research programs mostly in the Bahamas, offshore Jamaica, along the Belize margin, in the western Gulf of Mexico, in the Maldives (Indian Ocean), along the Australian Great Barrier Reef and in the Gulf of Papua (Papua New Guinea). The main focuses of my research include the regional and global evolution of coral reefs through time, the paleo-oceanographic/climatic and sea level records archived in the sediments deposited around reefs and carbonate platforms. In contrast with my 30 years plus research a s a marine geologist, I am currently conducting research on Upper Cambrian Microbial Reefs in Mason County, Central Texas funded by an Industry Consortium in collaboration with my colleague Prof. Dan Lehrmann at Trinity University in San Antonio (Texas). My work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the American Chemical Society, and grants from oil and gas companies. Before becoming an assistant professor at Rice in January 1987, I was a postdoctoral research scientist at the University of South Carolina from 1985 to 1986. I received my Master’s degree equivalent from the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland) in 1978 and earned his Ph.D. from the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Miami (Florida) in 1984.
