Manager and Chief Editor, United
Nations Atlas of the Oceans. The Atlas is Internet-based,
with information relevant to sustainable development
of the oceans and to advancement of science. It
is designed for policy makers, scientists and resource
managers but is also a major attraction to the
public and students. The Atlas includes: 1. an
encyclopedic About the Oceans
section from how oceans were formed, to their physiology,
biology, and climatology, including maps and data
bases; 2. the Uses of the oceans
from sources of food, livelihood, recreation and
energy to conservation, shipping, mining; and,
3. Ocean Issues such as
food security, governance, global change, and pollution.
The Atlas is at
of the Apollo Program - Presentation
to staff and docents of the National Air
and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center,
Chantilly, Virginia USA (72 Mgb). It
includes Neil Armstrong's One
small step for a man speach and that
of JFK at Rice Univ. on the goal of going
to the moon in this decade.
in Climate Change: Dr.
Everett led work for the IPCC (Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change) on five impact analyses
from 1988-2000: Fisheries (Convening Lead Author),
Polar Regions (Co-Chair), Oceans (Lead Author),
and Oceans and Coastal Zones (Co-Chair/2 reports).
He also was a Contributing Expert in developing
the IPCC Impact Assessment Methodology protocol.
See IPCC Nobel Prize recognition.
Since leaving NOAA, he has kept abreast of the
literature in these areas, talked to many individuals
and groups and has maintained these subjects
on the UN Atlas of the Oceans, where he is
the Chief Editor and Project Manager. As time
permits, he reviews IPCC documents for IPCC
(as an Expert Reviewer) and for the US. See
his US Congressional testimony on the Impacts
of Climate Change on the Oceans and Coastal
Zones and Fisheries and on Ocean
He received the NOAA
Administrator’s Award for “accomplishments
in assessing the impacts of climate change
on global oceans and fisheries.”
He was assigned the climate
change duties when he was the NOAA/National
Marine Fisheries Service Division Chief for
Fisheries Development in the 1970s. The agency
was very concerned about the impact of climate
change on the US fisheries and fishing
industry. Global cooling would be devastating to our fisheries and aquaculture.
About 1987, the momentum shifted to fears
of global warming and
as Director of Policy and Planning for
NOAA/NMFS, he was tasked to lead NMFS efforts
in dealing with it. This switch makes him
more cautious than many of his peers. He
has a website to help others see all sides
of the argument and sort things out for themselves: http://www.ClimateChangeFacts.info.
Interests in Ecosystems: Since
overseeing the NMFS contract for ecosystem
modeling at MIT's Draper Lab in the 1970s,
Dr. Everett has been actively involved in
the furtherance of an ecosystems-based approach
to fisheries management. Upon his retirement
from NMFS, he received this plaque recognizing
his contributions to fisheries science.
has been studying the role of "forage
fish" as predators
(of fish eggs, larvae, and young) and as competitors
with all young fish for zooplankton, for over
a dozen years. His testimony
on menhaden is
the first public paper. He has also been studying
the positive effects of dredging he observed
as a commercial fisherman. The first report
of this type was on the Impacts
of Dredging to the NEFMC.
Dr. Everett is a Life Member
of American Fisheries Society and of Betta
Gamma Sigma academic honor society. He is
also a Member of the Marine Technology Society,
the Coastal Conservation Association, and
the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
