The Macondo oil well exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010 and was finally sealed in September. Many methods have been used to mitigate the affects and amounts of oil present in Gulf waters, including dispersants, containment, burning, oil removal, and even erecting barrier islands. What about microbes?  MORE >>

Our ROLE Model webinars resumed last night with a topic near and dear to our hearts here in Midcoast Maine—lobsters! Dr. Richard Wahle, based at UMaine’s Darling Marine Center, has been conducting research on the American lobster for 20 years. He and his collaborators are seeking methods and tools that will successfully predict population trends of one of the most economically important fisheries in the United States.  MORE >>

Follow the Great Belt Research Cruise as they sail around the South Atlantic from Chile to South Africa on the R/V Melville. This scientific expedition is carrying out the first systematic study of the Great Southern Coccolithophore Belt. Rebecca Fowler, Director of Education at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, has created a website specifically for education and outreach. Her daily blog is filled with fun, educational news, answers to readers questions, and interviews of Bigelow scientists.  MORE >>

“This isn’t science fiction,” Professor Chai said, “This is real.” What if we are not able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and we face an emergency here on Earth as a result of global warming? Scientists asked this question some time ago and have been researching different technologies that could be used to cool the planet, if needed.  MORE >>

Dr. Linda Kalnejais, an oceanographer at the University of New Hampshire, studies the effects that pollutants have on estuaries. She pointed out that a very large percentage of the world’s human population lives clustered around these unique ecosystems. As a result, estuaries receive significant levels of pollutants.  MORE >>

A lot of people still aren’t comfortable with the whole idea of “models”—what they are and how to use them. But they have become increasingly important in many fields, including ocean and climate research. Carolyn Jordan is a research scientist at the Complex Systems Research Center: Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). In this week’s webinar, she explained how mathematical models work.  MORE >>

In this week’s ROLE Model Webinar, Dr. Ben Twining, researcher at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, described some of the myriad technologies that are used in ocean science research. Annette deCharon then shared some of her observations and experiences from her years of using concept mapping in a variety of contexts.  MORE >>

Biogeochemist Larry Mayer spent the last few weeks dreaming about genies. Last night he talked to an online audience of 36 people from 12 states about what he calls the “genie in the bottle” also known as sequestered carbon. Former educator and current graduate student Beth Campbell also shared her insights as an educator on just how useful concept mapping can be – both for her previous students and for her current research.  MORE >>

At COSEE-Ocean Systems we always want to know how participants feel about the activities, resources and events that we sponsor—if you’ve attended any of our events you’ve probably had direct experience with this through one of our Survey Monkey surveys! This is very important to our work and we appreciate the time people take to do these surveys because they’ve enabled us to collect so much valuable information about what is useful to educators and what direction we need to go in.  MORE >>

This summer, educators and other professionals from across the U.S. participated in online presentations by scientists on two fascinating topics: 1) oil spill impacts on the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem and 2) hydrothermal vent ecosystems. They also heard from educator-colleagues about ways to implement concept mapping in the classroom and in collaborative projects.  MORE >>
