Kerry J. Campbell

Society for Underwater Technology Houston


Kerry J. Campbell began his professional career in 1968 as a Research Geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey mapping glacial and Holocene deposits in New England.  Subsequently, he helped pioneer sea-ice and permafrost surveys in the Arctic using radar profilers.  For the past 40+ years, he has been a marine engineering geoscientist with Fugro and predecessor companies.  Mr. Campbell’s specific areas of expertise include interpretation of marine high-resolution seismic data for shallow hazard and engineering purposes for both shallow and deepwater sites scattered around the world, including sites offshore North and South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia.  He has also helped pioneer integrated, multi-disciplinary studies of offshore geohazards and soils, the use of 3-D exploration seismic data for drilling hazards assessment and preliminary engineering-geologic assessment of deepwater areas, and assessment of gas hydrates as a potential geohazard. 

Mr. Campbell is author or co-author of some 40 technical papers in geology, geophysics, and engineering geology.  He holds BS and MS degrees in geology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.  He is a Registered Geologist, Geoscientist, or Engineering Geologist in Alaska, California, and Texas.  Mr. Campbell is currently Principal Geoscientist in the Houston office of Fugro Marine Geoservices, Inc.
