A video featuring two University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientists will be screened at the Woods Hole Film Festival. “Beyond the Gulf Stream” focuses on the complex winter currents that collide off the coast of Cape Hatteras. It was inspired by a National Science Foundation-funded project, “Processes driving Exchange at Cape Hatteras,” or… Read more »
The UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography will kick off its 2020 Evening @ Skidaway program series on Monday, March 9, with the premier of the video, “Beyond the Gulf Stream.” The video was shot and produced by local videographer Kyle Maddox-Lawrence, who joined a 2019 research cruise on board the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute Research… Read more »
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.
University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Julia Diaz has been awarded a prestigious Sloan Research Fellowship. Diaz is joined by 125 other 2018 Sloan Fellows from across the U.S. and Canada.
by Sean A. Ahoy from the North Atlantic! I am a University of Georgia graduate student in Elizabeth Harvey’s lab at UGA Skidaway Institute, and I study phytoplankton, the microscopic cells that power life in the ocean. Currently, I am sailing across the Atlantic Ocean for a month on the Research Vessel Atlantis. I am… Read more »
In the battlefield of the microbial ocean, scientists have known for some time that certain bacteria can exude chemicals that kill single-cell marine plants, known as phytoplankton. However, the identification of these chemical compounds and the reason why bacteria are producing these lethal compounds has been challenging. Now, University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography… Read more »
UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Elizabeth Harvey travels to the farthest reaches of the globe and in the nastiest weather to study microscopic marine plants known as phytoplankton. Last fall, Harvey spent a month on board a research ship in the turbulent North Atlantic as part of a NASA-funded project to learn more about… Read more »
University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography researcher Julia Diaz recently co-authored a paper published in the journal Frontiers in Marine Science. The paper, “Dark Production of Extracellular Superoxide by the Coral Porites astreoides and Representative Symbionts,” appeared in the journal’s Nov. 24 issue. The lead authors were Tong Zhang from Nankai University, as well… Read more »
UGA Skidaway Institute scientist Elizabeth Harvey will be spending the next month on board Woods Hole’s Research Vessel Atlantis. The North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES) is a five year investigation to resolve key processes controlling ocean system function, their influences on atmospheric aerosols and clouds and their implications for climate. Here is… Read more »
