REU: Gulf of Maine Research Institute: Integrated Studies in a Rapidly Warming Fishery Ecosystem

One of the foremost challenges of our times is to understand the impacts of climate change on our coupled natural and human systems. This includes documenting and monitoring change, as well as predicting and mitigating future impacts of climate change on ecosystems around the world. Very few places are witnessing the effects of climate change more intensely than the Gulf of Maine, which has been warming faster than 99.9% of the global ocean. As such, GMRI is strategically positioned to conduct cutting-edge research on this issue, and we welcome this opportunity to invite undergraduate students to take part in our work.

12-week paid summer internship in biological oceanography (Puget Sound, WA)

Dr. Danny Grunbaum and Dr. Julie Kiester have funding to support a 12-week paid summer intern in biological oceanography on a project studying how zooplankton swimming behaviors are affected by hypoxia and acidification in Puget Sound. We are using three approaches to study distributions and movements of zooplankton: 1) a video system that is deployed in situ on a vertically profiling ORCA mooring in Hood Canal, 2) cameras deployed on Lagrangian drifters on research cruises, and 3) zooplankton net tows to ground-truth the camera data.
