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.
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 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.
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.
UGA Skidaway Institute director Clark Alexander was interviewed by a crew from the PBS series “Changing Seas” for a program focused on salt marshes.
The U.S. Navy and the University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography are teaming up this summer to track hurricanes. The collaboration is part of a larger project that includes the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, the University of South Florida and the Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA) to maintain a continuous stream… 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 »
