A new study by MSC postdoc Rachel Gittman shows that living shorelines can help to ameliorate the stress imposed on coastal habitats by development and climate change.
MSC Professor Bill Detrich has been awarded a $1.25 million grant from the National Science Foundation to continue his research in Antarctica on how the changing climate might impact the uniquely-adapted icefish
According to MSC Assistant Professor Tarik Gouhier, as our climate changes, important oceanographic processes such as coastal upwelling are projected to change also.
Associate Professor Justin Ries has received funding from the National Science Foundation to advance his studies on ocean acidification
MSC researchers have developed a bioenergetics framework to understand how marine organisms will deal with the stressors associated with climate change.
As ocean temperatures rise due to climate change, marine organisms have two options: adapt to warmer conditions or relocate to cooler, higher latitude waters.
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.
Professor Brian Helmuth, deeply involved in the Urban Coastal Sustainability Initiative, shares his thoughts on how looking at climate change in a different way will be helpful.
Professor Brian Helmuth and colleagues have developed a new approach designed to avoid generalizations that fail to capture variability in nature.
Fear of predators can change prey behavior, shaping entire ecological communities. But MSC research suggests that the impact of predators on their prey may change with temperature.
