University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography biologist Adam Greer studies marine life from the bottom up (of the food chain, that is). Greer investigates plankton – organisms between approximately one millimeter to several centimeters in size – adrift in the water column. He uses a new, cutting-edge imaging system that reveals more of this… Read more »
Studying marine animals can be incredibly difficult, and the smaller the creature, the more difficult it can be. University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography researcher Adam Greer will examine the challenges and some new, high-tech solutions in a virtual Evening @ Skidaway program, “The Secret Life of Ocean Critters,” via YouTube on Tuesday, May… Read more »
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.
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 Elizabeth Harvey has been awarded a prestigious Sloan Research Fellowship. Presented by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the fellowship is awarded to early-career scholars representing the most promising scientific researchers. Harvey is joined by 125 other 2019 Sloan Fellows from across the U.S. and Canada. She will… Read more »
At 4 o’clock on a warm, humid August morning, Quintin Diou-Cass stood on a dock at the University of Georgia’s Skidaway Institute of Oceanography collecting water samples at low tide from the Skidaway River estuary. Diou-Cass attends Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania and was a summer intern at Skidaway Institute. His water collection will be used… Read more »
Doliolids are tiny marine animals rarely seen by humans outside a research setting, yet they are key players in the marine ecosystem, particularly in the ocean’s highly productive tropical and subtropical continental margins, such as Georgia’s continental shelf. University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Marc Frischer is leading a team of researchers investigating… Read more »
There was a nice article in Saturday’s Savannah Morning News regarding a new imaging lab at UGA Skidaway Institute. http://savannahnow.com/news/2017-01-20/automated-microscopes-aid-crucial-ocean-work-skidaway
Skidaway Institute researcher Elizabeth Harvey is one week into a five-week-long North Atlantic research cruise. Here is the latest post from the cruise blog, including a picture of Liz in the blue parka.
