David Edward Archer (born September 15, 1960) is a computational ocean chemist,[1] and has been a professor at the Geophysical Sciences department at the University of Chicago since 1993.[2] He has published research on the carbon cycle of the ocean and the sea floor. He has worked on the history of atmospheric CO

concentration, the expectation of fossil fuel CO
2
over geologic time scales in the future, and the impact of CO
2
on future ice age cycles, ocean methane hydrate decomposition, and coral reefs.[1] Archer is a contributor to the RealClimate blog.[1]

Teaching responsibilities[edit]

He teaches classes on global warming, environmental chemistry, and global geochemical cycles.[2]

Education[edit]

He obtained his Ph.D from the University of Washington in 1990.[2]
