URI graduate students create models of the Narragansett Bay food web to see how the ecosystem will respond to change.Continue reading "Scientists Create Models to Simulate Narragansett Bay’s Changing Food Web"
URI GSO scientists are creating a series of computer models of the food web of Narragansett Bay to predict how fish abundance will change as water temperatures rise, nutrient inputs vary, and fishing pressure fluctuates.Continue reading "URI scientists create model to simulate changing food web in Narragansett Bay"
GSO scientists depart for a five-day cruise to investigate the implications of a marine heat wave in the offshore waters of New England.Continue reading "URI scientists investigate effects of marine heat wave on ocean life off southern New England"
New research from GSO professor Kelton McMahon finds that depending on their diet, some penguin species are able to thrive in the rapidly changing Antarctic while others are facing decline.Continue reading "Researchers find the future belongs to penguins that can adapt their diet"
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"
