Conrad Neumann, ...
Conrad Neumann, University of North Carolina professor emeritus of geology, was born in Chilmark in 1933.
Schooled on- and off-Island, he wanted to be a fisherman.
His mother had other ideas, and when Conrad was 16 years old, she wrote a letter to Columbus Iselin of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution about a job for her son.
It was a fortunate introduction, because in 1958, after receiving a master's degree in geology, he joined the institution, where explorations at sea led him to a lifelong career of research on the carbonate sediments of the seafloor, biological processes of erosion, shoreline, and climate changes.
About himself he
once wrote, "What he
does best, however, is fish: a result of his
legacy of being born and brought up on Martha's Vineyard Island surrounded by the sea."

Conrad is retired professor emeritus at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and conducted research "on the deposition of modern carbonate sediments in the lagoons, margins, and deep flanks of limestone platforms in the Florida-Bahama region, and used his findings to reconstruct the histories of ancient limestones and draw inferences about sea level fluctuations and climate change over geologic time," according to the university website.

Conrad Neumann, professor of marine sciences at the University of North Carolina, said sea levels jumped inexplicably by 12 feet about 120,000 years ago, based on surveys in the Bahamas.
They dropped again almost as rapidly.
"There was no man-made effect on the climate then," he said.
