Dr. James C. Kelley
Short Biography


Dr. James C. Kelley is an oceanographer with 50 years of research experience on the oceans of the world.  
He is primarily interested in the coastal regions of the oceans and coastal upwelling, a phenomenon which is responsible 
for one-half of the world’s fish catch.  Because El Nino interrupts coastal upwelling and changes the world weather, 
he has also studied that phenomenon extensively.  Jim is also interested in multiple uses of the coastal oceans, for example for 
fishing, petroleum production and shipping. Jim is also intersted in and has lectured extensively on the future of the fresh 
water supply, globally and in the American West.

Jim was Dean of the College of Science and Engineering at San Francisco State University from 1975 
until 2001. He was for nine years President of the California Academy of Sciences, was Chairman of the Board 
of the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, Chairman of the East Pacific Oceanic Conference and a member of 
the U.S. Department of Interior’s Advisory Board on the Outer Continental Shelf which advises the Secretary on offshore drilling.  
He has served as Chief Scientist and Expedition Leader on many cruises around the world.
