Three graduate students in Sara Rivero-Calle’s lab have completed or been accepted to competitive and prestigious training programs in remote sensing and ocean optics. The three- to four-week courses are sponsored by organizations such as NASA, the French Space Agency, the International Ocean Color Coordinating Group and the Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry (OCB) Project Office.
Doliolideers and friends, Our first full DolMICROBE cruise is in the books! After months of waiting, training, and equipment testing, we finally received the green light to mount a full-scale research expedition on the R/V Savannah on April 5 & 6, 2021.The problem has been that, because of COVID-related safety precautions, we have not been… Read more »
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 »
A team of University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientists has received a $1 million grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation to study the way tiny zooplankton alter the marine food web on the continental shelf. Marc Frischer, Jay Brandes and Adam Greer will study how doliolids affect the way productive continental shelf… Read more »
Sometimes scientists start out researching one subject, but along the way, they come across something else even more interesting. This is what happened to University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography researcher Adam Greer in the summer of 2016 when Greer was a post-doctoral associate at the University of Southern Mississippi.
University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Catherine Edwards is participating in a collaborative project that will track the migration patterns of important fish species using artificial intelligence and a fleet of underwater robots. The project is a joint effort among UGA Skidaway Institute, Georgia Tech, Michigan State University, Wright State University and Gray’s… Read more »
UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography researchers may have found a link between shrimp black gill and climate change. Black gill is a condition shrimpers have blamed for devastating their shrimp harvests. It is caused by a single cell parasite. VIDEO
A team of University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientists has received a 4-year, $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to study how dust in the atmosphere is deposited in the ocean and how that affects chemical and biological process there. The research team of Clifton Buck, Daniel Ohnemus and Christopher Marsay… Read more »
Biological oceanographer Adam Greer has joined the faculty of University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and the UGA Dept. of Marine Sciences as an assistant professor.
Researchers at the University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography believe the rise of black gill in Georgia shrimp in recent decades may be linked to climate change, specifically the warmer winters in the region.
