About this person

Abdirahman M. Omar (AMO) is a senior researcher II at Uni Research AS. He is currently scientific project manager of, and a measurement station PI in, the infrastructure project ICOS-Norway and Ocean Thematic Centre. AMO earned his PhD in Chemical Oceanography in 2003 at the University of Bergen, Norway. He has considerable experience in investigations of marine biogeochemistry, measurements of carbon cycle parameters, instrument testing, and research management. AMO’s research interest is the marine carbon cycle particularly in the shelf and marginal seas. He investigates topics including the natural variability and anthropogenic increase of CO2 in the ocean utilizing automatic sensors aboard commercial ships so called Voluntary Observing Ships (VOS) and on moorings. Over the last few years AMO has been involved in the development of methods and technologies for monitoring CO2 seepage in the marine environment.
