Common whelk live in one of the fastest-warming marine areas, Rutgers-led study says Climate change could threaten the survival and development of common whelk – a type of sea snail – in the mid-Atlantic region, according to a study led by scientists at Rutgers University–New Brunswick. The common, or waved, whelk (Buccinum undatum) is an […]
Rutgers researchers retraced the evolution of enzymes over billions of years Rutgers researchers have discovered the origins of the protein structures responsible for metabolism: simple molecules that powered early life on Earth and serve as chemical signals that NASA could use to search for life on other planets. Their study, which predicts what the earliest […]
An exciting inter-disciplinary documentary, funded in part by the National Science Foundation, following a world-class team of scientists, including Oscar Schofield chairman of SEBS Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences, as they race across the world’s fastest winter-warming place to study a changing ocean. Imagine yourself here doing hands-on research at SEBS!
Heat stress from extreme heat and humidity will annually affect areas now home to 1.2 billion people by 2100, assuming current greenhouse gas emissions, according to a Rutgers study. That’s more than four times the number of people affected today, and more than 12 times the number who would have been affected without industrial era […]

By Mary Ellen Dowd Rutgers Institute of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) faculty member Rebecca Jackson is a physical oceanographer with specialized interests in ocean-glacier interactions, coastal dynamics, and polar processes. Her research focuses on the underwater melting of glaciers, specifically in Greenland and Alaska, and ocean dynamics in the polar regions where various […]
Seafood production also may be impacted by increased acidification A nuclear war that cooled Earth could worsen the impact of ocean acidification on corals, clams, oysters and other marine life with shells or skeletons, according to the first study of its kind. “We found that the ocean’s chemistry would change, with global cooling dissolving atmospheric […]
