Anne Marie Grunow is the senior research scientist at Ohio State University in the Byrd Polar Research Center.[1] She is also the current curator of the Polar Rock Repository.[2][3][4][5] Grunow is a geologist[3] specializing in Antarctic tectonics, with her research using methods from geochronology[1] and paleomagnetism.

Early life and education[edit]

Anne Marie Grunow was born to Willard Grunow and Loris M. Grunow,[6] and she grew up on a potato farm in the Pomona section of Galloway Township, New Jersey and graduated from Absegami High School in 1977, where she preferred history over science and math.[2]

In her undergraduate years at Wellesley College,[2] she developed a commitment to geology, which she viewed as being the history of the earth. Her attachment to the outdoors comes from her childhood when she lived on a farm. This aligned well with the extensive fieldwork that a geology degree required.[2] Grunow graduated from Wellesley College in 1981 and received a bachelor's degree in Geology, graduating Phi Beta Kappa and Summa cum Laude.[3] She then continued her education at Columbia University in New York City.[1] In 1989 she received her Doctorate (PhD) in Geology.[7] For her thesis research, Grunow worked under Dennis V. Kent[8] as well as advisors Terry Wilson[9] and David Elliot at Ohio State University on her dissertation: Cenozoic structural segmentation of the Transantarctic Mountains rift flank in southern Victoria Land.[10] This also marked the beginning of her travels to Antarctica.[2]

Following this, Grunow received a Post Doctoral Fellowship from 1991 to 1993[1] with NATO in Geology at the University of Oxford.[3] She later worked with Wilson and Richard E. Hanson on the research paper: Gondwana assembly: The View from Southern Africa and East Gondwana.[11][12] Their work was published in the Journal of Geodynamics in 1997.[12]

Career and research[edit]

In 1993, she started as a research scientist at Ohio State University in the Byrd Polar Research Center.[1] Now a senior research scientist at Ohio State, she is also the curator of the Polar Rock Repository[2][3][5][4] and the Magnetic Data from Subglacial Clasts, West Antarctic Ice Sheet.[13] Her expertise includes geology and earth science,[3] geochronology,[1] tectonics, paleomagnetism, and polar geology.[14] Her research centers on Antarctic Tectonics.

Some of Anne Grunow's most cited and notable work includes her research on Pan-African deformation and the potential links to the lapetus opening.[15] This research centered around data collections dating back to the late Neoproterozoic era, and how they demonstrated a temporal correlation between Pan-African deformation and the Iapetus ocean basin closing.[15] Another one of Grunow's most cited research paper was on the changing magmatic and tectonic styles along the paleo‐Pacific margin of Gondwana and the onset of early Paleozoic magmatism in Antarctica.[16] This research focused on the early Cambrian era with crystallization and its association to the lack of recorded magmatism .[16]

Her research has also been implemented in the Global Change Master Directory[13] and published in Journal of Geophysical Research.

Her work was also noted by the United States Antarctic Program, which commented on the benefit of her work and the Polar Rock Repository's ability to provide samples from Antarctica to a variety of scientific sources for study.[17]
