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.
A new study by Three Seas Alumnus Jason Selwyn and MSC graduate student Alan Downey-Wall illustrates how chaotic genetic patchiness in tropical gobies can offer insight into the genetic structure of marine ecosystems.
Associate Professor Jen Bowen, PhD student Patrick Kearns, and their colleagues’ research in the Great Marsh suggest that microbes play an important role in the provision of ecological services.
The MSC is pleased to welcome Associate Professor Jen Bowen to Northeastern and to Nahant, where her expertise in marine microbial communities will benefit the academics, research, and outreach of the Center.
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.
A team of researchers at the MSC’s Ocean Genome Legacy has identified and described a rare species of seagrass boring shipworm, making important genetic and life history information available to the wider scientific community.
A study by a team of Northeastern faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and students examines the role that geography plays in how successful the spread of the invasive reed, Phragmites australis, may be.
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.
MSC Director and Professor Geoff Trussell speaks about pollution and other related problems experienced by coastal cities such as Olympic host Rio de Janeiro.
