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.
Lecturer Dan Douglass recently weighed in on the causes and consequences of a 100-mile-long-and-growing crack in the Larsen C ice shelf.
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.
Professor Bill Detrich weighs in on the import of the recent establishment of the largest marine reserve on earth in the Ross Sea, Antarctica
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.
Ocean iron fertilization for carbon sequestration is a controversial issue, and as scientists consider how iron can help combat climate change, NUSCI student contributor Shannon Jones provides a summary of the benefits and drawbacks.
