Climate change likely to increase black carbon input to the Arctic Ocean

Arctic rivers are the major way black carbon is transported to the ocean

Savannah, Ga. – University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Aron Stubbins led a team of researchers to determine the levels of black carbon in Arctic rivers and found that the input of black carbon to the Arctic Ocean is likely to increase with global warming. The results of their study were recently published in the journal Frontiers in Earth Science.

Skidaway scientists work to predict 22nd century look of Georgia coast

UGA Skidaway Institute researcher LeeAnn DeLeo lowers the sensor to measure conductivity, temperature and depth from the surface to the bottom

University of Georgia Marine Sciences faculty, Clark Alexander is working on a project to predict how the Georgia coast—characterized by a complex system of barrier islands, salt marshes, estuaries, tidal creeks and rivers—may look 25, 50 and 100 years from now. As the sea level rises over the next century, that picture is changing. Read more here.

The Skidaway Institute of Oceanography is seeking two new faculty scientists

The Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, a multidisciplinary research institution located on the Georgia coast near Savannah, and the UGA Department of Marine Sciences within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, invite applications for two, nine-month, tenure-track positions resident in Savannah. Applicants working in diverse marine settings are encouraged to apply, although experience and a desire to work in estuarine, coastal and shelf environments are preferred as are researchers who focus on the roles of anthropogenic forcing on marine processes.
