Marine sciences research projects by SoMAS faculty are conducted all over the globe.  Check out the following faculty profiles for more information about the projects listed below:

BASSEM ALLAM

Integrating genomic tools and ecological physiology to probe shellfish response to pathogenic and environmental stress.

EMMANUELLE PALES-ESPINOSA

Unraveling the mechanisms of particle selection in suspension-feeding mollusks.

BOB CERRATO

Studies examining the vulnerability of populations, trophic interactions, and communities to stressors such as eutrophication, habitat alteration, overfishing, and climate change.

HENRY BOKUNIEWICZ

Setting up a geochemical tracer experiment in Jamaica, West Indies.

BASSEM ALLAM

Bivalve-microbe interactions: from molecules to populations.

JOE WARREN

Improve our understanding of pelagic ecosystems through the use of active and passive acoustic techniques.

NILS VOLKENBORN

Explore benthic invertebrate performance (heartbeat rates, valve gaping, bioturbation) in response to enviornmental change (temperature, salinity, oxygen, pH) to identify stress thresholds in dynamic coastal environments.

JANET NYE

Examining trophic interactions in the Northwest Atlantic using stable isotopes, molecular tools, and food web modeling.

LESLEY THORNE

The spatial analysis and the foraging ecology of marine mammals and seabirds using quantitative skills.

KIRK COCHRAN

Using naturally occurring radionuclides as indicators of biogeochemical processes in the Pacific Ocean.

STEVE BEAUPRE

Exploring the reactivity of ancient organic molecules found in the sea using radiocarbon dating

BRAD PETERSON

Assessing the effect of pCO2 draw down by seagrasses on benthic community development and resilience to ocean acidification.

ROY PRICE

Hydrothermal vents in the context of exobiology and the origin of life

HENRY BOKUNIEWICZ

Development of coastal processes projects (beach morphology, rip currents) and coastal groundwater hydraulics (submarine groundwater discharge, coastal flooding, salt water intrusion).

GORDON TAYLOR

Investigating variations in carbon cycling in marine plankton on a cell by cell basis using state-of-the-art confocal Raman microspectroscopy and atomic force microscopy.
