Dr. Rainer Lohmann, Assistant Professor of Oceanography, discusses the threat of organic pollutants to humans and the environment in a changing world. Professor Lohmann received his Ph.D. in Environmental Chemistry from Lancaster University, England (UK) in 2000. He then joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral fellow, and moved to the Research Center for Ocean Margins (Bremen, Germany) as a fellow for most of 2004. Since November 2004 he has been Assistant Professor in Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island's Graduate School of Oceanography. His current research interests include the global fate of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), the bioavailability of organic pollutants in sediments, and the use of passive samplers to measure the activities of organic compounds in air, water and sediment.
