John Delaney

ORG University of Washington Title BIO John Delaney is Professor of Oceanography at the University of Washington and Chair of the NEPTUNE project. As a marine geologist, his research focuses on the deep-sea vulcanism of the Juan de Fuca Ridge in the northeast Pacific Ocean. He has served as chief scientist on 20 oceanographic research cruises, many of which have included the Deep Submergence Vehicle ALVIN. In the summer of 1998, Delaney led a joint expedition with the American Museum of Natural History to successfully recover four volcanic sulfide structures from the Ridge. This U.S./Canadian effort was the subject of a NOVA/PBS documentary. As Chair of NEPTUNE, he leads the multi-institutional, international team that is developing the world's first plate-scale ocean observatory, a heavily instrumented network of electro-optical cable that will encompass the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate and the ocean above it. Other activities and honors include being named a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union in 1995; co-directing REVEL, a program that provides middle- and high-school teachers with opportunities to participate in sea-going research; and having served on a NASA Committee that planned the Europa Orbiter Mission expedition with the American Museum of Natural History to successfully recover four volcanic sulfide structures from the Ridge.
