A Community of Scientists on Martha's Vineyard - Martha's Vineyard Arts & Ideas

mvartsandideas.com [cached]

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.
Among his many dives, in 1971 he descended to depths of up to 700 meters in the Alvin, to the base of Little Bahama Bank and northeastern Straits of Florida. In other words, he traveled almost half a mile in a can to the cold, dark bottom of the ocean.

Conrad Neumann

Conrad Neumann, Professor Emeritus of Geological Oceanography at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was born and brought up on Martha's Vineyard where he began his interest in the sea as a commercial fisherman. He has since studied and researched this field in such diverse places as the Red Sea, the South Atlantic, and the Gulf of Mexico. His specialty, carbonate sediments and limestones, has taken him to Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Italy, Hungary, U.K. and deep under the sea in the research submersible, Alvin where he discovered coral reefs growing at depths of two thousand feet off the Bahamas and cold sulfur springs at two miles deep off western Florida. Presently retired, he maintains his research activities as well as writing poetry, fishing and enjoying his Martha's Vineyard home with his wife, Jane.
