Stephen V. Smith has a PhD degree in Oceanography from the University of Hawaii, an MS degree (Geology) from Northwestern University, and a BA degree (Geology) from the University of Texas. He is currently an Investigator in the Geology Department at CICESE (Centro de Investigación Cientifica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada) in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, and is also an Emeritus Professor of Oceanography at the University of Hawaii. Dr Smith specializes in biogeochemical budgets (carbon, nutrients, water, sediments), at local, regional, and global scales. Since about 2000, his main areas of interest have included river nutrient loading to the ocean, the role of small, artificial water bodies in the hydrology and sediment dynamics of the U.S., and the role of erosion and terrestrial sediment deposition in the global carbon budget.
