Liz Magee traces her passion for diving back to her participation in the Three Seas Program more than 10 years ago, and she couldn’t be happier to have found her way back.
It is widely known that rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide are making the oceans more acidic, but how much have the oceans changed since the Industrial Revolution, and what impacts are these changes having on creatures inhabiting the ocean? Associate Professor Justin Ries is looking to rock-forming ‘coralline’ algae to answer these questions.
Climate change over the 21st century will significantly alter an important oceanographic process that regulates the productivity of fisheries and marine ecosystems, according to an interdisciplinary research team led by Northeastern University.
College of Science professor Brian Helmuth and a group of international researchers recently published a review paper in Climate Change Responses calling for a new approach to understanding and predicting the impact of climate change.
Many of the principal issues facing coastal sustainability in 2015 are ones the field has been dealing with for some time, says Northeastern’s Marine Science Center Director Geoff Trussell.
New research from Marine and Environmental Sciences professor Justin Ries explains how moderate increases in ocean acidification and temperature can enhance the growth rates of some reef-forming corals.
