A new equipment system is providing researchers at the University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography greater capability to study the extremely rare, but essential chemicals in the ocean.
UGA Skidaway Institute researcher Natalie Cohen will explore hydrothermal vents in a virtual Evening @ Skidaway program titled “What’s so hot about hydrothermal vents?” on Tuesday, March 9, at 7 p.m. Due to restrictions imposed by COVID-19, the talk will be presented virtually via Zoom.
The Evening @ Skidaway programs are UGA Skidaway Institute’s monthly public lecture series. All the programs will be presented virtually until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted enough to allow a return to in-person presentations. To join any program, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be sent a link to access the presentation. All programs are free of… Read more »
Two new scientists have joined the faculty of the University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography. Sara Rivero-Calle is a biological oceanographer whose research focuses on microscopic marine plants known as phytoplankton, and her approach to studying these tiny organisms is cutting-edge.
The Georgia Forestry Commission will conduct a controlled burn on the University of Georgia Skidaway Marine Science Campus during February. The burn area will be near McWhorter Drive, south of the developed section of the Skidaway campus.
The University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography will kick off its 2021 Evening @ Skidaway speaker series on Tuesday, Feb. 9, with a program on using satellites to explore the ocean. Due to restrictions imposed by COVID-19, the talk, titled “Oceanography from Space,” by UGA Skidaway Institute scientist Sara Rivero-Calle will be presented virtually.… Read more »
In recent years, some coastal communities have begun building man-made sand dunes as an alternative to hard structures like sea walls to protect their beaches from natural erosion and the effects of storm surges. Now researchers at the University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography are studying the man-made dunes on one Georgia island to… Read more »
Senator Sheldon Whitehouse visited UGA Skidaway Institute in November to meet with director Clark Alexander. A Democrat from Rhode Island, Whitehouse is strongly interested in environmental issues, especially those related to the ocean.
The University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography will resume its Evening @ Skidaway speaker series on Tuesday, December 8, in a virtual format due to COVID-19 restrictions. The program is titled “More than wind and waves: Hurricanes’ impact on the ocean chemistry.”
Biological oceanographer Sara Rivero-Calle’s research focuses on microscopic marine plants known as phytoplankton. However, her approach to studying these tiny organisms is cutting-edge. Rather than collecting samples in research vessels, Rivero-Calle uses miniature satellites to study them from space.
