Follow the breadcrumbs: Sponges show how some animals clean up viruses

Kristin Huizenga

These days, hunkered down in our homes (if we are lucky) and washing our hands till they’re raw, it can feel like the outside world is a virus soup. However animals in the ocean go swimming through viruses on a daily basis. A new study from the Netherlands shows us that in fact many animals […]

Welcome to oceanbites!

The goal of oceanbites is to make cutting edge research in the ocean sciences accessible to all. oceanbites will also highlight classic, seminal research papers, and feature op eds about current issues in research.

    1 month ago by oceanbites It’s  #fieldworkfriday  here is a set of Bongo nets being deployed off the  @uri .gso  #rvendeavor  for the  #neslter  project. These nets are used to collect various sizes of zooplankton to understand food web dynamics on the Northeast US Shelf.  @woodshole_ocean   #nsffunded   #womeninstem

    1 month ago by oceanbites One of the highlights of any conference is the poster session where you get to check out some of the most recent research and talk one on one. Here are two awesome students, Annie and Sam, presenting their posters. Annie’s work is “Fine-Scale Nature Variability of Community Distribution on a Low Temperature Discharge Outcrop of a Ridge Flank Hydrothermal System.” Sam’s poster is “From nutrient deplete to replete: phytoplankton community composition form oligotrophic open ocean go eutrophic coastal waters.”  #oceansciences2020   #womeninstem   #oceanscience   #oceanbites

    1 month ago by oceanbites Ever wonder what it looks like to attend a scientific conference? Now’s you’re chance to take a peak. This week in our stories we will be sharing scenes from the Ocean Sciences conference in San Diego with the help of one of our amazing writers Nyla.  #oceansciencesmeeting2020   #marinescience   #sandiego   #oceanbites

    2 months ago by oceanbites For  #fieldworkfriday , we are featuring work on the  #rvendeavor  from the  #neslter  that is examining food web dynamics on the Northeast US Shelf. The instrument pictured here is a towed vehicle that captures images of plankton in the water. It is particularly good at imaging gelatinous plankton that would otherwise end up squished in our nets!

Lights, Camera, Action! Photography as a tool for observing environmental change

Observing long-term trends in the environment can be a daunting task. Here, scientists used settlement panels to observe community compositional changes in San Francisco Bay (SF Bay). Over a 5-year period, they deployed 500 panels across ten sites in the SF Bay region. An exciting part about this project was the use of citizen scientists
