FHL Tide Bites: Bacterial Responses to Ocean Acidification

Think ‘small’ when reading the latest “Tide Bite” from Friday Harbor Labs: Professor Lisa Crummet writes about her research in the summer of 2016 at FHL on ocean acidification on marine bacteria. Note that she worked with a summer REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) intern. These are fully-funded internships at FHL which include a stipend as well as room and board. The application period for REU positions is fast approaching, and will start in winter 2017.

[winter course] OCEAN 450: Climatic Extremes

To better understand the key factors that control the earth’s present and future climate, this course examines episodes in the earth’s past when extreme climate conditions existed. Dramatic changes in the earth’s climate have resulted from natural variations in solar insolation, atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, rates and pathways of ocean circulation, plate tectonics, and the evolution of vascular plants and, in modern times, the burning of fossil fuels. The impact of these factors on climate through interactions between the atmosphere, oceans and land will be evaluated.
