"Estuarine Science in a Changing Climate: Taking Action Come Hell or High Water"
Bio: John Tiedemann is the Assistant Dean in the Monmouth University School of Science and Director of the University’s Marine and Environmental Biology and Policy Program. He currently teaches courses in marine and environmental biology and policy and coastal zone management.
Mr. Tiedemann received a B.S. in Physics and Planetary Sciences from Upsala College in 1976 and an M.S. in Biological Oceanography from the Florida Institute of Technology in 1980. A lifelong resident of New Jersey, he has been professionally employed in the marine and environmental field since 1979 and has worked in the public and private sectors as well as academia throughout his career.
His work has addressed a breadth of marine and environmental science and management issues in New Jersey’s coastal waters including monitoring and management of ocean dumping activities, assessments of the impacts of coastal development on water quality and living marine resources, implementation of best management practices for controlling sources of coastal pollution, preservation of traditional maritime industries, and conservation and management of marine recreational fisheries.
When not at work he can be found surfing or fishing along New Jersey’s northern coast.
