Research: Marine Magnetics; Mid-Ocean Ridge and Hotspot Interactions; Plate Tectonics; Seafloor Mapping with High-Resolution Multibeam Sonars of Artificial and Real Coral Reefs, Mines, Paleoshorelines, Hydrothermal Vents, and Fish Habitats; and Wax Analog Modeling of Seafloor Spreading Processes

Deep Ocean: Mid-ocean microplate tectonics, small and large offset propagating rifts, and hydrothermal venting and other mid-ocean ridge processes.

Shallow Ocean: High-resolution multibeam studies of: 1) benthic habitats of coral reefs and fish; 2) paleoshorelines & sea level rise; 3) scour & burial of mines, artificial reefs, & pipelines; 3) shallow water hydrothermal venting, and 4) paleoshorelines.

Over the past six years, these research interests have been addressed with oceanographic seafloor mapping expeditions to the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Analyses of multibeam, magnetics, gravity, side-scan sonar are made in conjunction with insight from a seafloor spreading analog wax model. Current projects include: Plate tectonic reconstruction of the Pacific-Nazca plates, Off-axis volcanism along the Easter Seamount Chain, Deep submersible investigations of exposed oceanic crust, Benthic habitat studies of Pulley Ridge, Florida Middle Ground, and Panama City Beach. Students involved in these projects partake in data collection, data analysis and publishing results (e.g., four of the five publications listed below are first-authored by the student involved with the project).

Dr. Naar is currently serving as the Graduate Program Director for the college.

Research: Igneous Petrology; Mantle Geochemistry; Role of Volatiles in Magmatic Processes; Deep Earth Geochemical Cycling of Volatiles

Dr. Dixon's research interests focus on the role of H2O and CO2 in the generation and evolution of basaltic magmas with an emphasis on submarine volcanoes. Her work includes solubility studies of H2O and CO2 in basaltic melts, vapor saturation and degassing models, and modeling of volatile contents in primary magmas and the mantle. Study areas have included the mid-ocean ridge system, Hawaii, the Galapagos, and the Easter Salas y Gomez Seamount Chain. Dr. Dixon received a NSF Early Career award in 1997 for excellence in research and education. In 2007, EPSL acknowledged one of her papers (Dixon et al., 2004) as one of their top-50 most cited articles.

From 1992 through 2010, Dr. Dixon was a professor at the University of Miami, where she was as a professor at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and in the Geology Department within the College of Arts and Sciences. At UM, she served as Director of the Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy's Undergraduate Program ('03-'08), Senior Associate Dean for the Life and Physical Sciences ('06-'10), and Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences ('09-'10). Dr. Dixon became Dean of the College of Marine Science at USF in 2011. She currently serves on the Executive Board of the Consortium of Ocean Leadership.

Prior to coming to the USF he was a faculty member in the Department of Oceanography at the University of Hawaii where he was also the Director of the University of Hawaii Sea Level Center. His interest in sea level rise began there in the mid-1980's, and he remains especially interested in the study of 20th century sea level rise. Professor Mitchum's research focuses on the use of satellite and in situ data to study sea level variations and climate change. In addition, he also works on a wide variety of problems in the general area of ocean physics, including ocean eddies, the El Nino phenomenon, internal tides and various types of ocean waves. He also has a long-standing interest in the application of ocean physics to improve our understanding of fisheries.

Dr. Mitchum currently serves as the Associate Dean for Research for the college.

Giving

The College of Marine Science seeks to become one of the top oceanographic institutions in the world. Our vision involves taking the next steps in our journey, becoming a global leader in applying science to society's needs through research, service and training of future scientists.

Funding from state government appropriations and student tuition are limited. Private financial support has become a major and growing source of revenue to fill critical faculty positions, provide state of the art technology and infrastructure, and enable us to attract and adequately support the best and brightest graduate students and post doctoral associates.

Join us in our vision. Invest in the University of South Florida's College of Marine Science.
