GSO is launching a new online master’s program aimed at professionals seeking to enter or advance their careers within the growing ocean economy.Continue reading "New online master’s program will train next generation of leaders in ocean science and technology"
URI PhD students discover single cell organisms in an unlikely place.Continue reading "Life Discovered in Deep Ocean Sediments at Temperatures Above Water’s Boiling Point"
An international research team that included three scientists GSO has discovered single-celled microorganisms in a location where they didn’t expect to find them.Continue reading "Researchers discover life in deep ocean sediments at or above water’s boiling point"
GSO graduate Kira L. Homola describes her research on deep sea carbon at GSO and the activities and interests that brought her to GSO.Continue reading "GSO Profiles-GSO Graduate Kira L. Homola"
GSO Graduate Nick Celico developed a shellfish restoration plan for Winnapaug Pond in Westerly, R.I. and as part of that, shellfish will be transplanted into the pond.Continue reading "GSO Profiles – GSO Graduate Nicholas Celico"
GSO oceanographers have synthesized the results of dozens of studies about the microbial life that lives deep beneath the seafloor. Their findings on how subseafloor life affects the world above the water line are somewhat surprising.Continue reading "URI oceanographer reveals link between subseafloor life and global climate"
Highly efficient archaea, called Thaumarchaea, out-survive bacteria in the energy-poor, oxygen-containing sediments beneath the deep sea. These Thaumarchaea consume bits of proteins from dead cells to build their own biomass and also to obtain energy.Continue reading "The archaea are winning in energy-poor, oxygen-containing deep-sea sediments"
Oceanographers from the University of Rhode Island will once again present their research and posters during an international Earth science meeting this month. Faculty, staff and students at the Graduate School of Oceanography are among the thousands of scientists attending the 50th annual gathering of the American Geophysical Union, or AGU, Dec. 11 through 15 […]Continue reading "GSO scientists to present research at national meeting, Dec. 11-15"
As is common practice for researchers around the world, URI GSO faculty and students share the results of their research with fellow scientists and society by publishing in refereed scientific journals. With so many people conducting so much research, it can be difficult to keep track of recently published articles. Fortunately, the URI University Libraries maintain a list of works published by GSO faculty and students at this link.Continue reading "Recent Faculty Publications"
