With a deep knowledge of the chemistry and the biology of oceans, his research interests are linked to understand how coral reefs will be impacted by global warming and ocean acidification.

He is co-founder of the South Florida Coral Reef & Climate Change Lab. Langdon pioneered the use of moesocosms and an experimental approach to study the impact of ocean acidification on coral reefs at Columbia University’s Biosphere 2 Center in Tucson, AZ.

Langdon got his Ph.D. in Biological Oceanography from the University of Rhode Island in 1988
