Biography

Dr. Mark Skidmore is a professor of Geomicrobiology in the Department of Earth Sciences at Montana State University. His research emphasizes the fundamental role of biogeochemical processes in the cryosphere, in particular microbially-mediated reactions in elemental (C, N, P, S and Fe) cycling in glaciated systems and their impacts, both regionally and globally. The cold microbial habitats in subglacial systems that Mark studies are also potentially good analog environments for icy systems elsewhere in the Solar System, e.g. on Mars and Europa – an ice covered moon of Jupiter.

Mark has 25+ years research experience in glaciated regions in Alpine and Polar environments, leading research projects in the Canadian Rockies, Canadian High Arctic, Yukon, Alaska, Iceland, Greenland, Norway, Switzerland and Antarctica. He has also participated as scientific investigator in subglacial lake drilling projects in Antarctica and Iceland.
