The rules of the water

North­eastern will lead an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary research project to study the inter­con­nec­tivity of rocky inter­tidal com­mu­ni­ties throughout the Gulf of Maine, where the warming rate of its waters is among the fastest in the world.

November 7, 2013 - Trussell Lab Ph.D students Catherine Matassa, left, and Sarah Donelan prepare to mount experiment cages on coastal rocks during low tide at the Marine Science Center in Nahant, MA.

Climate models suggest major changes in coastal marine ecosystems

By the end of the 21st cen­tury, cli­mate change will sig­nif­i­cantly alter an impor­tant oceano­graphic process that reg­u­lates the pro­duc­tivity of fish­eries and marine ecosys­tems, North­eastern researchers report in a new paper in Nature. These changes are likely to influ­ence the geo­graphic dis­tri­b­u­tion of marine biodiversity.

How does marine life survive climate extremes?

An inter­dis­ci­pli­nary team of researchers at North­eastern Uni­ver­sity has received a four-​​year, $1.2 mil­lion grant from the National Sci­ence Foun­da­tion to develop new ways to study how marine organ­isms respond to cli­mate related severe tem­per­a­ture stress.


A ‘model’ approach to studying coastal ecosystems

Tarik Gouhier, a new assis­tant pro­fessor working at Northeastern’s Marine Sci­ence Center, studies the inter­con­nect­ed­ness of ecosys­tems and how they respond to envi­ron­mental change.
