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.
NUSCI Contributor Erica Yee examines the evolution mass media climate reporting, from the first mention of a warming world in the 1950s to the slow acceptance of the anthropogenic causes of climate change.
