The guy to the left, that's Tracey Sutton, Ph.D., an NSU research scientist who is working with colleagues using new tech to better study the deep sea and learn more about the unique animals that call the deep their home.
When it comes to finding one’s way, NSU researchers have discovered that Garmin, Tom-Tom and Google Maps have got nothing on Mother Nature. Tagged whale sharks are showing remarkable navigation skills without using a smartphone.
Turn on the TV, pick up a newspaper or scroll through various social media threads and there are bound to be stories about blue-green algae blooms plaguing communities across Florida. NSU scientists are joining with fellow researchers to study this phenomenon.
Researchers from Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography joined with colleagues from other research institutions to explore the water column in some of the deepest parts of the Gulf of Mexico.
NSU is part of an ambitious project to help collect and rescue specific species of corals. The goal - bring them onshore to live in coral nurseries until the disease that is currently decimating the reefs subsides, then outplant them back in the ocean to grow healthy reefs. Call it Noah's Ark for corals.
