photo of Walter C. Oechel Walter C. Oechel, Ph.D., is a Distinguished Professor of Biology at San Diego State University, along with the Coordinator for the Joint Doctoral Program in Ecology with the University of California Davis, Director of the Global Change Research Group, and Academic Director of the Field Stations Program. His research currently focuses on developing and understanding the predictive capability of the interconnections of terrestrial, atmospheric, and marine systems on global change. He focuses primarily in the Arctic (Alaska, Russia), the Pacific Basin (including Baja California Sur, Mexico, Indonesia), and the semi-arid ecosystems of Italy and San Diego. He incorporates a small research aircraft, eddy covariance towers, soil measurements, remote sensing, and modeling in his research programs. He leads a highly active research group with funding averaging $1.4 million/year, and he advises 8 Ph.D. students and several Master's and undergraduate students.
