Malcom Reid - University of Otago

Malcolm ReidMalcolm is lab manager for the Community Trust Trace Element analysis lab, and he also manages the Munida time series project, measuring CO2 and pH levels off the Otago coastline over a long period in order to assess changes.

The Munida Time Series project looks for evidence of increased CO2 uptake from the atmosphere, and a correlated lowering of the pH level.

Malcolm’s research measures both dissolved CO2 and pH in seawater samples, taken from transects running out from the Otago coast to a distance of 60 km.
