For K-12 students, the discussion of climate change could result in eco-anxiety, including a fear about the current and future impacts of a changing Earth. In this video, Carrie Ferraro (RUCOOL and Institute of Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Sciences) and Patricia Findlay (Rutgers’ School of Social Work) talk to Steve Abudato on their recent collaboration […]

Scientists have little understanding of the role fishes play in the global carbon cycle linked to climate change, but a Rutgers-led study found that carbon in feces, respiration and other excretions from fishes – roughly 1.65 billion tons annually – make up about 16 percent of the total carbon that sinks below the ocean’s upper […]

Despite the current global COVID pandemic, RUCOOL is one of the few groups that has been able to maintain presence in in Antarctica. Rachael Young, a former Rutgers undergraduate, the lead for science operations for the National Science Foundation’s Palmer Station Long Term Ecological Research (PAL-LTER) program at Palmer Station. Since 1991, the 30-year-old PAL-LTER […]
