Understanding Coastal Ecosystems
Science for the Public: Working Science
June 18, 2015 at Northeastern University Marine Science Center, Nahant, Massachusetts
We visit the lab of Brian Helmuth at Northeastern University's Marine Science Center to see how marine scientists investigate the effects of climate change on seacoast species, including mussels and oysters. Dr. Helmuth is Professor of Marine and Environmental Sciences; also Professor, School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs; and Director, Sustainability Science and Policy Initiative,Northeastern University.
The Helmuth Lab is very committed to outreach designed for students and the general public, and its online resources include splendid virtual reality tours to many areas around the world; this feature is a must-see on the Helmuth Lab site. There are numerous other resources there as well.
