Jacqueline Grebmeier has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society, for providing “new and sustained insights on the ecological responses of Arctic continental shelves to climate change and extraordinary leadership in scientific program development.”
As the summer sea ice in the Arctic waters off the coast of Alaska shrinks with each passing year, scientists are trying to predict changes in microscopic marine algae called phytoplankton in the ocean water.
An anonymous donor and longtime friend and supporter of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Chesapeake Biological Laboratory has come forward to offer a matching challenge grant of up to $10,000.
Scientists from Chesapeake Biological Laboratory are partnering with local restaurants on Solomons Island to “make the switch” from common, single-use petroleum-based plastics, such as straws and take-out containers, to compostable and biodegradable products in an effort to keep harmful plastics out of waterways.
Dr. Louis Plough will give a talk titled "Shells, fins, and water: harnessing genomics to investigate the ecology and evolution of marine animals" at 11am, Wednesday in the Coastal Science auditorium. The public is welcome.
