Ocean oxygen levels are dropping, and that has big implications for marine life. GSO professor Karen Wishner’s research on zooplankton and oxygen levels is featured in the latest issue of Scientific American.Continue reading "The Ocean Is Running Out of Breath, Scientists Warn"
GSO professor Kelton McMahon is on an Antarctic research cruise as part of a multi-year project to help scientists better understand how the Southern Ocean food web has responded to environmental changes in the past, and predict how the ecosystem might respond to a changing climate in the future.Continue reading "Studying the past, and predicting the future, of the Southern Ocean food web"
GSO researchers have found that even slight levels of ocean oxygen loss have big consequences for tiny marine organisms called zooplankton.Continue reading "GSO researchers: Small changes in oxygen levels have big implications for ocean life"
