Robert Kunzig


Robert Kunzig

Robert Kunzig is an award-winning scientific journalist, specializing in the topic of oceans. He works at the European division of "Discover" magazine and is a regular contributor to National Geographic. His writings led to him winning a prize in scientific journalism from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism. His book, Mapping the Deep, a beautifully written narrative of the story of ocean science, won the prestigious Aventis Science Book of the Year award. He has recently co-written a compelling account of climate science with the geophysicist and leading climate scientist, Professor Wallace Broecker. This includes an important discussion of the work of Klaus Lackner in capturing CO2 from the atmosphere - which Kunzig and Broecker consider will play a vital role in reducing emissions and countering global warming.
