“Molecular insights into spatiotemporal variations and bloom dynamics in phytoplankton in the Neuse River Estuary” In the Neuse River Estuary, an increase in frequency and intensity of algal blooms has been attributed to eutrophication. Regulations by government agencies to reduce eutrophication as well as predictive ecosystem models for algal growth have made some progress towards achieving a healthier ecosystem in the NRE. However, a general lack of knowledge of bloom dynamics as well as limited understanding of which environmental factors…

“To Solarbee or not to Solarbee ― that is the question.” The NC Division of Water Resources is currently performing monitoring to evaluate the potential of solar powered mechanical circulation (SolarBee) to reduce nutrient related impairments for Jordan Lake in Chatham County, NC. A preliminary assessment was conducted on historical, and project period water quality data to investigate efficacy of the Jordan Lake Nutrient Mitigation Demonstration Project. Overall success of the demonstration project will be measured by comparing concentrations of surface…

Understanding the mechanistic link between environmental heterogeneity and physiology to forecast the effects of climate change at continental scales (Host: Karl Castillo) The intertidal is strongly influenced by meteorological conditions, providing a direct link between climate and biodiversity. Yet, the mechanisms translating small-scale, individual thermal stress patterns into large-scale invasions and range shifts remain virtually unknown. To tackle this issue, we have been collecting data from a unique network of biomimetic sensors deployed along the European coast. Coupled with in-situ measurements of…

“Elemental ratios in marine carbonates as tracers of Earth’s O2 evolution?” Earth’s O2–containing atmosphere, unique among known planets, has played an essential role in evolving feedbacks between life and environment. Atmospheric O2 was extremely low in the Archean Eon (>2.5 billion years ago), and while multiple lines of evidence suggest that Earth’s oxygenation was protracted and dynamic, pO2 may have risen abruptly at two different points in time: first during the “Great Oxygenation Event” (GOE) at ~2.4 billion years (Ga),…
