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, […]
An international team of researchers including MSC Associate Professor Justin Ries have published work highlighting important details regarding the plight of marine calcifying organisms facing changes in ocean chemistry.
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.
Recent work by a team of experts including MSC Associate Professor Justin Ries, highlights the importance of research integrating information across a range of spatial and biological scales to better understand the threat that ocean acidification poses for corals.
Associate Professor Justin Ries recently received a grant from MIT Sea Grant to advance his research on the impacts that ocean acidification may have on commercially important shellfish in local waters.
A study by a team of MSC and University of North Carolina researchers reveals that ocean acidification makes it harder for crabs to prey on oysters, despite the oysters having a thinner shell.
Research by MSC Associate Professor Justin Ries illustrates important relationships between environmental conditions and urchin skeletons, providing potential for improvements in historical reconstructions.
Associate Professor Justin Ries has received funding from the National Science Foundation to advance his studies on ocean acidification
Associate Professor Justin Ries has been awarded a 10-month fellowship-in-residence to research the impacts of ocean acidification on marine shell-builders.
Associate Professor Justin Ries has published groundbreaking research suggesting that some corals actually benefit from moderate ocean acidification.
