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.
UGA Skidaway Institute scientist Marc Frischer will lead a journey to explore the diversity of life in the ocean from the formation of the Earth through the evolution of life in the oceans to the present day in an Evening @ Skidaway program titled “The Ocean – The Cradle of the Earth’s Biodiversity” on Tuesday,… Read more »
UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Chris Marsay will spend much of the coming winter on board an ice breaker frozen solid in the Arctic ice cap. Marsay, working with fellow UGA Skidaway Institute researcher Clifton Buck, is part of a major international research project named Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate… Read more »
UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Jay Brandes and UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant educator Dodie Sanders were recently featured in a magazine and online article encouraging young students to participate in citizen science.
Until now, scientists believed the black carbon in the ocean was introduced there by rivers. However, a new paper published in Nature Communications by a collaborative group of scientists, including University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography professor Jay Brandes and graduate student Kun Ma, questions that assumption and presents researchers with a new mystery.
UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography professor emeritus and former director James Sanders was honored by the Consortium for Ocean Leadership (COL) with the 2019 Graham B. Shimmield Leadership Award for extraordinary contributions to the advancement of the organization and its mission.

The models hurricane forecasters use to predict the paths of storms have become much more accurate in recent years, but not so much the models’ ability to accurately predict a storm’s intensity. Now, underwater gliders, operated by researchers at the University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, are part of a national effort to use… Read more »
