Christine Addison Buckel

Ecologist, Geospatial Analyst and Data Visualization
Beaufort Laboratory
Coastal Resilience, Restoration and Assessment

Addison-Buckel works on resilience centered projects that span a variety of topic areas from corals, to marshes, to storm surge under sea level rise.  She manages data of all types, analyzes their spatial and temporal patterns, and then develops data visualization products to help clients understand trends and patterns in an accessible way.

Early in her career with NCCOS, Addison-Buckel  traveled throughout the Caribbean and the U.S. East coast diving to record coral and reef fish community data and analyze their trends. Currently, she spends less time in the field and more time behind a computer and in conference rooms analyzing and discussing sea level rise data with stakeholders.

Addison-Buckel received her BS in Biology and then later went on to the University of California, Santa Barbara for her MS in Marine Science.


NCCOS delivers ecosystem science solutions for stewardship of the nation’s ocean and coastal resources to sustain thriving coastal communities and economies.
