Some scientists get to have all the fun. Last week my colleague Joan Lynch and I made the trip up to Nahant to visit with a team of marine researchers based at […]
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.
Northeastern marine science professors Brian Helmuth and Mark Patterson discuss the decision for Northeastern to join forces with Mission 31, the monthlong underwater expedition off the Florida coast and headed by Fabien Cousteau.
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.
U.S. Reps. John Tierney and Katherine Clark, as well as staff members from U.S. Sens. Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren’s offices, visited Northeastern’s unique urban coastal research facility in Nahant on Wednesday to learn more about the interdisciplinary work taking place there.

In the first session of the semester-long Open Classroom series on the world’s water crisis, Shafik Islam, the director of the Water Diplomacy Initiative at Tufts University, posed a chilling question: “Will water lead to war?”
Northeastern professors have teamed up with Fabien Cousteau, the grandson of famed oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, to lead Mission-31—a 31-day research operation on the ocean floor off Florida’s coast.
Two new faculty based at the Marine Science Center are harvesting data from the ocean to understand how global change has impacted its ecosystems and will continue to do so in the future.
At the first annual Sustaining Coastal Cities conference, national and international leaders began a conversation on the future of fisheries.
Experts from academia and the public and private sectors converged at Northeastern for a daylong symposium focused on how to design sustainable cities for the future.
Hosted by the College of Science, the Sustainable Cities Conference will bring together world leaders to discuss the fragile state of marine ecosystems.
