Fig leaf or laurel wreath – When does “green” development help or hurt the ocean?

Making new coastal development more environmentally friendly seems like a win-win, but how much is helpful and how much is just for show?

Aquaculture as a means of food and protection?

The low lying coast of Bangladesh is burdened with natural weather patterns that bring storm surges, heavy rainfall, and intense flooding. As sea level rises and greater coastal erosion is predicted, long term solutions to maintaining low lying areas must be investigated. Researchers at the Institute of Marine Science and Fisheries in Bangladesh, in collaboration […]

Determining marine bird distribution in Glacier Bay, Alaska using fine spatial-scale hydrographic modeling

Researchers in Glacier Bay surveyed fifteen species of marine birds and linked the observations to instantaneous measurements of current speed and water surface elevation to determine how fine-scale tidal features influence bird distribution. Samantha DeCuolloSamantha works as a laboratory technician in the Menden-Deuer laboratory at the Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO). She recently defended her […]
