Explorer Classroom | Katlin Bowman

Oceanographer and National Geographic Explorer Katlin Bowman studies mercury chemistry in marine environments using chemistry and genomic techniques, helping scientists understand how mercury concentrations have changed throughout history. Currently, she is studying how microplastic pollution in San Francisco Bay impacts mercury cycling. Katlin has spent nearly a year of her life at sea, spanning 12 expeditions. She has crossed the Atlantic, cruised through the tropical Pacific Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, walked across ice floes at the North Pole, and explored the seafloor in the deep-ocean submersible Alvin. A mentor to young women in science in a program for underrepresented women applying to graduate school, she is also the co-author and narrator of a children’s book, To the Top of the World, that tells the story of a research expedition to the Arctic Ocean.
