Richard Poore.

Richard Poore is newly stationed at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s St. Petersburg Science Center in St. Petersburg, FL, to which he brings a strong background in paleoceanography, paleoclimatology, geology, and micropaleontology. Dick received a B.S. in Earth science from the State University of New York (SUNY) Fredonia and an M.S. and Ph D. in geology from Brown University. He has led several research projects for the USGS and is currently project chief for the Gulf of Mexico Climate and Environmental History Project, which is supported by the Earth Surface Dynamics Program. The project is developing information on paleoceanographic, climatic, and environmental changes in the Gulf of Mexico and adjacent land areas. The study will provide a detailed history of climatic and environmental changes that can be used to estimate the impacts of possible future climate warming and provide a baseline for identifying any human-related changes.

Dick has also held several management positions within the USGS; for example, he served as coordinator of the Geologic Division's Climate History Program and chief scientist of the Eastern Region's Climate History Team. He recently completed a detail as program director in the Marine Geology and Geophysics Program at the National Science Foundation.
