Geraint Tarling has extensive experience in zooplankton ecology with specific expertise in modelling zooplankton behaviour and life cycles.
He has studied copepod biology in both sea loch and open ocean environments and is a veteran of over 20 polar scientific cruises.
Currently he heads the Ocean Ecosystems team at the British Antarctic Survey and runs the SCOOBIES long term monitoring programme, examining carbon flux and the impacts of ocean acidification on zooplankton in the Scotia Sea (Southern Ocean).
