An interdisciplinary seminar presented by UNC-CH Department of Marine Sciences graduate student, Lauren Speare. Seminar Title: Impact of ocean acidification on Blue Mussel immune defense mechanisms Abstract: Marine bivalves provide critical ecological and economic benefits through marine habitat creation, water filtration, and aquaculture. Microbes are ubiquitous in the water column and filter-feeding bivalves can concentrate pathogenic microbes without getting infected. They do so through a number of developed physical and biological barriers including calcium carbonate shells and immune cells. Climate change due to…

An interdisciplinary seminar presented by UNC-CH Department of Marine Sciences graduate student, Saulo Mendes. Seminar Title: Potential connections among climate change, tropical cyclones and tsunamis Abstract: Tsunamis present a constant danger to coastal areas in part for behaving as shallow water waves, making early detection difficult. Normally, the physical characteristics of the waves are not known until their arrival at the coast, prompting a necessary but not accurate warning system. Due to hydrodynamical processes and interaction with beach geometry, it is very common…
