Catherine Matassa has published a paper in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
Northeastern professor Brian Helmuth, an expert on climate change and environmental policy, has co-authored a paper in the journal Nature Climate Change examining the need to further integrate science into U.S. climate and ocean policy.
Student-researchers at Northeastern’s Marine Science Center turned to crowdfunding to support their work in Panama examining white-band disease, which has killed up to 95 percent of the Caribbean’s reef building corals.
Marine and Environmental Sciences professor Brian Helmuth co-authors a paper about US climate and ocean policy.
Assistant professor Loretta Fernandez has developed a straightforward method for determining the concentration of contaminants likely to end up in the tissues of organisms living in polluted waterways.
Last week, Northeastern researchers were joined by Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Stephen W. Director to converse with audience members at the Boston Museum of Science from a unique vantage point: the bottom of the ocean at the Aquarius Reef Base off Florida’s coast.
When animals must balance the fear of being eaten with their own need to feed, their decisions affect the entire ecosystem. New research from professor Geoff Trussell, who directs Northeastern’s Marine Science Center, suggests this effect is even more pronounced under future climate change scenarios.
For the next two weeks faculty, students, and staff from Northeastern University’s Urban Coastal Sustainability Initiative and led by professors Mark Patterson and Brian Helmuth are taking part in Mission 31.
Waterfront homeowners’ efforts represent hundreds of thousands of miniature conservation projects. Understanding how they tick is essential to urban coastal sustainability efforts, according to post-doctoral research fellow Steven Scyphers.
It’s been 12 years since research technician Sara Williams first learned of Aquarius. Now she’s getting a chance to visit it herself during Mission 31, a monthlong research dive.
