Last week, Northeastern researchers were joined by Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Stephen W. Director to converse with audience members at the Boston Museum of Science from a unique vantage point: the bottom of the ocean at the Aquarius Reef Base off Florida’s coast.
For the next two weeks faculty, students, and staff from Northeastern University’s Urban Coastal Sustainability Initiative and led by professors Mark Patterson and Brian Helmuth are taking part in Mission 31.
As part of a month-long underwater research mission, graduate student Allison Matzelle will lead a project studying the flow of energy through one of the oldest organisms in the world: the giant barrel sponge.
Northeastern researchers will investigate the effects of global change on reef ecology as part of Mission 31, documentary filmmaker Fabien Cousteau’s 31-day underwater expedition off the coast of Florida.
As we get ready to face another winter storm, and are still warming up from a frigid January, there are plenty of people questioning the validity of climate change.
Less than 0.1 percent of the planet’s water is available for safe use, and challenges centered on H2O form the nexus of some of society’s most pressing environmental issues.
Brian Helmuth’s work was recently featured in International innovation.
Northeastern researchers are teaming up with Jacques Cousteau’s grandson to reignite the famous oceanographer’s singular vision.
Urban coastal sustainability becomes an ever more pressing concern as more than half of the world’s population flocks to its shores—the places where cities thrive.
The majority of the world’s cities lie on a shoreline, and by 2020, two-thirds of all Americans are expected to reside in coastal cities.
