Understanding Great Lakes Ecosystems

 | 

Zhang, Hongyan

Hongyan Zhang, Ph.D., uses computer models to investigate various topics, like the impact of invasive mussels on plankton, the occurrence of blue-green algal blooms, and the effectiveness of the phosphorous reduction program in Lake...

Stein, Ariel

Tracking pollutants in the atmosphere with a world-renowned model

 | 

Stein, Ariel

One versatile model can track airborne dust from the Sahara Desert, forecast smoke dispersal from wildfires, and predict the spread of radiation through the atmosphere from nuclear accidents. Dr. Ariel Stein and his NOAA...

Tedesco, Marco

Researching Remote Reaches of the Arctic

 | 

Tedesco, Marco

Few scientists have been to the locations in Greenland where Marco Tedesco and his team conduct field research on snow and ice melt.

Winton, Mike

Exploring Climate Change in the Arctic

 | 

Winton, Mike

NOAA scientist Mike Winton enjoys the sense of discovery his work yields. The oceanographer, whose research is directed toward fathoming climate change in the Arctic, says each work day is an adventure unto itself and exposes him to...

O'Connell, Martin

For Sea Grant Research, Oil Spill is Just the Latest Disaster in Gulf of Mexico Habitats

 | 

O'Connell, Martin

For Sea Grant scientist Martin O'Connell, researching aquatic communities in Louisiana has taken on new urgency since the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill.
