Stemming from a 2016 international group of scientists where researchers discussed a new framework for understanding the impacts of global change on marine ecosystems, Professor Brian Helmuth and colleagues worked to describes how we can best predict the larger, ecosystem-scale impacts of global change.
Undergraduate student Tim Briggs recently blogged about a few days spent with members of the Helmuth Lab conducting research in Maine on how intertidal organisms may respond to climate change.
Doctoring dolphins and mapping shipwrecks, tagging turtles and aging fish, reconstructing a skeleton and creating seaweed art. These were just few of the skills that students were able to learn and practice at the annual High School Marine Science Symposia, earlier this month. Co-hosted by Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center and the Massachusetts Marine Educators, […]
Masters work by Emily Duwan of the Helmuth Lab involved developing digital tools to visualize climate change on the Boston waterfront, and is featured in a blog by Journalism student Gwendolyn Schanker.
Work by Professor Brian Helmuth and many colleagues from around the world using robomussels to track climate change was featured in the Science section of the New York Times.
For ecological forecasters such as Professor Brian Helmuth, mussels act as a barometer of climate change. Helmuth has helped to establish an enormous global dataset showing climate variation using “robomussels” installed in the field.
Scientists, including MSC Professor Brian Helmuth, are researching how to best protect and maintain the marine resources of southern China and Southeast Asia in the face of climate change and other anthropogenic impacts.
New research from Professor Brian Helmuth and colleagues examines how environmental variation across a coastline can alter potential impacts of climate change on key organisms like mussels.
The Marine Science Center is proud to announce the successful PhD dissertation defense of seven graduate students in the past year: Althea Moore, Nicholas Colvard, Jennifer Elliot, Sarah Gignoux-Wolfsohn, Lara Lewis-McGrath, Christine Ramsay-Newton, and Lin Zhu. Upon successful defense of their dissertations, these students earned doctorate degrees as successful graduates of Northeastern’s Ecology, Evolution, and […]
MSC Director Geoff Trussell recently participated in a panel to review the Boston Research Advisory Group’s report on projected climate impacts to the City of Boston, furthering the University’s goals of advancing urban coastal sustainability.
