Top researchers, entrepreneurs, scholars, and policymakers from Massachusetts and Switzerland convened at Northeastern University on Friday for an energy summit, where participants discussed innovations and strategies to address climate change and a range of other global energy challenges.
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.
Northeastern research technician Sara Williams first heard of the underwater research habitat Aquarius as a young member of the Girl Scouts of the USA. Twelve years later, she’ll be leading a research project just outside its doors.
Graduate student Amanda Dwyer will lead a research project in conjunction with Mission 31, a monthlong underwater expedition led by Fabien Cousteau, in which she’ll examine the dynamics of zooplankton on coral reefs.
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.
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.
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.
