Two graduate students who conducted their research at UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography successfully defended their theses this fall and are scheduled to receive their master’s degrees in December.
Chemical oceanographer Daniel Ohnemus has joined the faculty of UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and the UGA Dept. of Marine Sciences as an assistant professor.
UGA Skidaway Institute researcher Dana Savidge is leading a team of oceanographers, including Skidway Institute colleague Catherine Edwards, who are trying to understand the mechanisms that drive the exchange of water between the deep ocean and the narrow continental shelf in the area of the Outer Banks. Their project, Processes Driving Exchange at Cape Hatteras,… Read more »

Rising sea levels will have major impacts on the people living in coastal counties. Conservative estimates predict a sea level rise or two to four feet by the end of this century, which would drastically change the face of Georgia’s coast. University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Clark Alexander will present an Evening… Read more »
Doliolids are tiny marine animals so transparent they are practically invisible. Yet, these rarely seen and little understood organisms are a major driver of the marine ecosystem on continental shelves around the world. University of Georgia researcher Marc Frischer recently completed a major field study in the South Atlantic Bight on the continental shelf off… Read more »
University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Clifton Buck will present an Evening @ Skidaway program to describe the science behind the “other carbon problem” — ocean acidification — on Tuesday, August 14, in the McGowan Library on the University of Georgia Skidaway Marine Science Campus (10 Ocean Science Circle, Savannah, GA 31411). The… Read more »
The University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography will present an “Open Lab Night” as part of its yearlong Evening @ Skidaway series of public programs to celebrate the Institute’s 50th anniversary. On Tuesday, July 10, visitors will have the opportunity to visit informally with scientists in their laboratories. The program will begin with a… Read more »
The Arctic is experiencing the effects of climate change faster than anywhere on the planet, yet it is one of the least understood regions, due largely to the difficulty of making observations and collecting samples there. With the support of National Science Foundation funding, two University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientists are studying… Read more »
