Congrats to Lauren! Their answer to the 2nd question: Why is the maritime sector significant to our nation’s COVID-19 recovery efforts, and what do you envision a ‘green-economy’ looks like?  “Tourism, recreation, commercial shipping, the coast guard, and the fisheries and aquaculture industry are all part of the maritime sector, and each of these sectors […]

Oscar Schofield, a Rutgers University professor who is also a coprincipal investigator (PI) for the Palmer Antarctica Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) site, was on a research cruise off the West Antarctic peninsula in February 2020 when he first saw news of the increasingly rapid spread of the novel coronavirus. “We didn’t appreciate how big of […]

Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), a regional keystone species, inhabit a rapidly warming and acidifying Southern Ocean. A new study by Saba et al. shows Antarctic krill feeding, growth, and physiological processes exhibit varying responses to independent and interactive effects of elevated temperature and ocean acidification.
