Kristina Walowski, Ph.D. from Western Washington University presents at GSO’s Marine Chemistry, Geology and Geophysics Lecture Series with her lecture titled “Boron recycling in the mantle: Evidence from a global comparison of ocean island basalts.”Continue reading "GSO Marine Chemistry, Geology and Geophysics Lecture Series: Kristina Walowski, Ph.D."
Sarah Fuller is the Operations Manager for WHOI’s Shipboard Scientific Services Group. The path for how she got there winds through various field work opportunities and the desire to continually contribute to research even when she isn’t collecting the data herself.Continue reading "Student-Alum Networking Seminar – Sarah Fuller – Field Work to Field Support – A Career in Supporting Academia"
Evidence continues to increase that submesoscale dynamics, motions characterized by O(1) Rossby number, make a leading order contribution to surface heat and other tracer fluxes.Continue reading "Physical Oceanography Seminar – Dr. Andrew Thompson – Stirring up the Southern Ocean"
Becoming a scientist and then leaving academia can feel weird. It’s easy to undersell the skills you’ve picked up along the way.Continue reading "Bio@Noon – Kate Furby – Using your PhD in the Wild"
This seminar will talk about some of the challenges and opportunities in searching for opportunities and writing proposals for funding.Continue reading "Bio@Noon – GSO Dean Paula Bontempi – Proposal Writing: Navigating Federal Opportunities and Language"
Microbial eukaryotes (or protists) in marine ecosystems are a link between microbial primary producers and all higher trophic levels.Continue reading "Bio@Noon – Sarah Hu – The Impact of Phagotrophic Protists at Hot Spots of Primary Production"
Marine microbes are the engines that drive the cycling of carbon and nutrients in the oceans and are responsible for approximately half of all global photosynthesis.Continue reading "Bio@Noon – Dr. Naomi Levine – Small but mighty—Marine microbial dynamics and the impact on global carbon cycling"
GSO alum Dayna Rignanese, M.O. 2013, spoke about “Reaching the Next Ocean Stewards” for her Alum-Student Networking Seminar.Continue reading "Student-Alum Networking Seminar – Dayna Rignanese – “Reaching the Next Ocean Stewards”"
Continued ocean acidification and warming is a major concern for marine organisms, especially for reef-building corals that rely on their symbiotic relationship with algae, which is highly susceptible to perturbation.Continue reading "Bio@Noon – Dr. Colleen Bove – Physiological and transcriptomic responses of Caribbean corals under global change"
Human understanding of the deep-sea benthic environment has always been limited by our ability to sample it, and as a result, deep-sea benthic ecology has a long history of mischaracterization (Edward Forbes’ azoic theory).Continue reading "Bio@Noon – Dr. Kersey Sturdivant – The untold story of recovery following the Deepwater Horizon incident: A worm’s eye view"
