Position: Director of Green Plant Consultancies Pty Ltd

Graham Jones My academic career at university spans over 25 years starting at James Cook University as the Foundation Lecturer in Marine Chemistry/Chemical Oceanography in 1988. During my research career I have supervised 67 undergraduate and postgraduate research students and produced over 100 publications, conference papers and reports in human impact and climate change science. I have served as a member of several national and international committees, editorial boards and regularly review journal articles from many leading international journals and grant applications from ARC Discovery, NSF (US), NERC (UK), the Dutch Polar Research Committee, Israel Science Foundation and Department of Innovation, Industry, Science & Research (DIISR).

Research Summary

Associate Professor Graham Jones carries out research on natural sulphur aerosol substances produced by microalgae present in corals, ocean phytoplankton and sea ice algae. These sulphur produced substances have an important effect on global and regional climate since they are oxidised in the atmosphere to produce cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) and low level clouds which significantly affect incoming solar radiation and cloud droplet concentration, and are linked to the carbon cycle and global and regional climate. Research carried out over the last 16 years has shown that the Southern Ocean, Antarctic Sea Ice Zone and coral reefs in the Great Barrier Reef produce huge amounts of these naturally produced sulphur aerosols potentially affecting cloud cover over these regions and sea surface temperatures. Present work is concentrating on measuring the production of these substances from Acropora coral at Heron Island with research students Elizabeth Deschaseaux and Hilton Swan, and involves collaboration with researchers from QUT and AIMS. We have three aims in this research: (1) To characterise the production of these sulphur substances from Acropora coral, a dominant coral in the Indo-Pacific region. (2) To physically and chemically characterise the aerosols produced from reefs to try and assess their importance to cumulous cloud development and CCN in the marine boundary layer-thus affecting regional climate. (3) To assess the effect of SST and UV light stress on the production of these sulphur substances from coral zooxanthellae in an effort to assess their biological role in coral.
