Dr. Bruce Monger

We’re so happy to have Dr Bruce Monger joining us to talk about animal agriculture and our oceans!

Dr. Monger received his PhD in Oceanography from the University of Hawaii, Manoa in 1993. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland for two years before coming to Cornell in 1997 as a Senior Researcher, and more recently a Senior Lecturer, in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Bruce’s research centers on the use of satellite observations to study how natural variability in ocean dynamics impacts marine ecosystems at ocean basin and global scales. He teaches a highly popular course at Cornell University: “Introductory Oceanography” with an attendance that has grown to over 1,000 students. A major theme the course centers of environmental threats to the ocean and the importance of citizen activism to pressure leaders to act now to make a more sustainable world that is fair to future generations. His course was featured as part of a New York Times article on interesting courses in the United States.
