Peter  Thompson


Dr Peter Thompson leads a small team investigating phytoplankton and nutrient dynamics. He completed a BSc, Masters and received his PhD in biological oceanography in 1991. He has worked on phytoplankton physiology including nutrient uptake dynamics, responses to light, temperature and pH at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) and at the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Since 1993 Peter has worked for the CSIRO and the University of Tasmania largely on phytoplankton ecology in water bodies under anthropogenic stress; providing advice to industry and resource managers on remediation and monitoring options. Recent work has focused on the impacts of climate variability on phytoplankton dynamics at the shelf scale and the consequences for Australia’s fisheries.
