Graduate student Jessica Torossian encountered winter’s beauty in the form of frost flowers while performing field research on blue mussels in the Gulf of Maine.
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.
Northeastern professor Brian Helmuth and a group of international researchers recently published a review paper in Climate Change Responses calling for a new approach to understanding and predicting the impact of climate change.
Rory Smead, an assistant professor of philosophy and religion, weighs in on whether the recent carbon emissions deal between the U.S. and China is a cause for optimism and explains how game theory can be applied to this agreement.
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.
Northeastern professor Brian Helmuth, an expert on climate change and environmental policy, has co-authored a paper in the journal Nature Climate Change examining the need to further integrate science into U.S. climate and ocean policy.
In a new paper, Northeastern researchers show how they’ve used advanced computational data science tools to demonstrate that despite global warming, we may still experience severe cold snaps due to increasing variability in temperature extremes.
New research from Northeastern University philosophy professors suggests that global climate negotiations would be more successful if countries worked together outside of global bargaining venues.
Northeastern professor Matthias Ruth sees the grim facts presented in the Third National Climate Assessment released Tuesday as an opportunity, not a reason to be pessimistic.
New research from Northeastern climate scientists suggests that the most recent generation of models is no better at predicting future outcomes than the older generation. But they have a solution.
Auroop Ganguly, an associate professor and extreme weather expert, discusses the newest report on climate change, which found that humans are almost certainly to blame for the global phenomenon.
Every now and then I’ll get word of a faculty or student project that feels a bit like getting a surprise cupcake delivered to my email inbox. Not only is […]
