Aron Stubbins’ recent work on deep-ocean hydrothermal vents (earlier post) is the cover story for this month’s Nature Geoscience. Wayi to go, Aron!
University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Aron Stubbins joined a team of researchers to determine how hydrothermal vents influence ocean carbon storage. The results of their study were recently published in the journal Nature Geoscience. Hydrothermal vents are hotspots of activity on the otherwise dark, cold ocean floor. Since their discovery, scientists have… Read more »

A couple of our researchers, Mike Robinson and LeeAnn DeLeo, made a caricature appearance in an editorial cartoon in the Savannah Morning News this week. Thanks, cartoonist Mark Streeter!
University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Clark Alexander is working on a project to predict how the Georgia coast—characterized by a complex system of barrier islands, salt marshes, estuaries, tidal creeks and rivers—may look 25, 50 and 100 years from now. As sea level rises over the next century, that picture is changing.… Read more »
