Jesse Ford


Dr. Jesse Ford of the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University traveled to Norway in March 2005 to lecture about the environmental fate of trace metals in the Arctic. During her tour, Dr. Ford visited the Norwegian Institute for Air Research and presented a talk on the priorities and future challenges for monitoring trace metals in Arctic environments. At the Norwegian Polar Environmental Center in Tromsø, Dr. Ford gave two public lectures:

"The Potential Role of K–12 Classrooms in Contaminant Monitoring During the International Polar Year"

"Contaminant Monitoring During the International Polar Year: Potential Linkages with Arctic Indigenous Organizations, Institutions, and Communities"

At the University Centre in Svalbard, Dr. Ford gave a general introduction to trace metals in the Arctic; most audience members were graduate and postgraduate students in Arctic Environmental Technology.
