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"
(23 January 2017 – 5 March 2017) Chief Scientist Rebecca Robinson, URI oceanography associate professor, along with members of her lab and a team of collaborators, head to the Southern Ocean for a research cruise aboard the R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer. Their research seeks to understand how the oceans and ocean biology interact with climate by looking at biologically important […]Continue reading "SNOWBIRDS"
