Jorge Sarmiento, the George J. Magee Professor of Geoscience and Geological Engineering and Professor of Geosciences at Princeton University, has published widely on the global carbon cycle, on the use of chemical tracers to study ocean circulation, on the impact of climate change on ocean biology, biogeochemistry, ocean productivity, and fisheries, and on the role of the Southern Ocean in determining the air-sea balance of carbon dioxide. He has published over 200 journal articles and is co-author, along with Nicolas Gruber, of the graduate textbook Ocean Biogeochemical Dynamics, published by Princeton University Press.

He is currently Director of the Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling Program (SOCCOM), a 6-year NSF funded program, established in 2014, to deploy 200 biogeochemical Argo floats and carry out associated modeling and data interpretation. In addition to SOCCOM Director, Sarmiento has held and currently holds various prominent posts.  He is the founding Director of the Princeton/GFDL Cooperative Institute for Climate Science (CICS), established in 2003, and the Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES), established in 2018.  He served as Director of the Princeton University Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program from 1980-1990 and again from 2006-2015.

Sarmiento and his research group are directly involved in data analysis, model analysis and metric development, as well as high-resolution biogeochemical modeling.
