Research Seminar: Rob Lampe

February 6 @ 12:20 pm - 1:20 pm
G201 Murray Hall, 101 South Road
Chapel Hill, NC 27599 United States

A research seminar presented by UNC-CH Department of Marine Sciences graduate student, Rob Lampe. Seminar Title: Investigating distinct strategies by bloom-forming diatoms to frequently-encountered shifts in their environment. Abstract: Diatoms are a highly diverse and prominent group of eukaryotic phytoplankton that perform approximately one-fifth of the carbon-fixation on Earth. As modern molecular techniques advance, they are quickly providing insights into the evolution and metabolic adaptations contributing to the ecological success of diatoms at a high taxonomic resolution. Here I present two studies that…

UNC Marine Sciences' Professor Alberto Scotti hosts a seminar presented by Daphne Klotsa, Ph.D. Seminar Title: Collective behavior of particles and swimmers in fluids at intermediate Reynolds numbers Presenter Affiliation: Department of Applied Physical Sciences, UNC-CH Abstract: Rigid spherical particles in oscillating fluid flows form interesting patterns as a result of fluid mediated interactions. Here, through both experiments and simulations, we show that two spheres under horizontal vibration align themselves at right angles to the oscillation and sit with a…

UNC Marine Sciences' Associate Professor Alberto Scotti hosts a seminar presented by Xiao Yu, Ph.D. Seminar Title: Two-phase approach for sediment transport Presenter Affiliation: UNC Institute of Marine Sciences Summary: Sediment transport by turbulent flow occurs widely in nature and the modelling of sediment transport is very challenging because of the complex interactions between turbulent flow and particles, as well as particle-particle interactions. The two-phase model is shown to be able to model the complicated turbulent-particle and particle-particle interactions, and it depends…

UNC Marine Sciences' Distinguished Professor Brent McKee hosts a seminar presented by UW Graduate Student, Emily Eidam Presenter Affiliation: University of Washington School of Oceanography Presenter Discipline: Marine Sediment Transport Seminar Title: Sedimentary processes contributing to delta evolution: Insights from the Elwha and Mekong dispersal systems Summary: Submarine deltas are the endpoints for many large and small rivers worldwide. Deltaic sediments serve as repositories for nutrients, natural resources, and stratigraphic histories of land-surface changes, but the processes by which they evolve are complex. The…

Research Seminar: Charlie Deaton

March 6 @ 12:20 pm - 1:20 pm
IMS 222 Coker seminar room, 3431 Arendell Street
Morehead City, NC 28557 United States

A research seminar presented by UNC-CH Department of Marine Sciences graduate student, Charlie Deaton. Title: Geomorphic and ecological response to land-use change and sedimentation in coastal watersheds along an urban-rural gradient Abstract: Physical changes across Earth’s landscape eventually cause changes along the coast, where rivers deliver terrestrial matter to our estuaries and oceans. Large river systems are responsible for draining the majority of land area, but empty out into a relatively small portion of the coast. Conversely, small rivers and tidal creeks drain relatively little…

A research seminar presented by UNC-CH Department of Marine Sciences graduate student, Maxwell Tice-Lewis. Seminar Title: Determining drivers of oyster reef community dynamics and resilience to freshet disturbance across estuarine gradients. Abstract: Eastern oysters (Crassostrea virginica) are estuarine foundational species ranging from Maine to the Gulf of Mexico, which form complex reef habitat for a large diversity of fish and invertebrate fauna. Thus, oysters offer a unique model for evaluating biogenic reef community dynamics and resilience to disturbance over estuarine spatiotemporal gradients…
