College professors know that preparing students to be good oceanographers takes a lot of hard work. Getting all the basics down, like the necessary math, chemistry and biology skills, among others, can be difficult on its own. But the real trick comes when all those skills are combined and used to approach actual work in the field. And when students finally get out of the classroom, there’s still more prep, like training them to use the advanced research tools that scientists use nowadays.
Still, college oceanography programs today get the job done by working in applied learning components that have students sailing on research vessels or suiting up in scuba gear to get hands-on experience.Read More
A happy oyster is a happy tourist: Vester Field Station’s monitoring work on the southwest Florida coast
A clean environment doesn’t just mean improved biodiversity and fresher air. It also means increased real estate demand. That fact was cemented in 2015 after a Florida Realtor’s report tied hundreds of millions of property values to the Secchi disk depth of the surrounding water.
The report was explicit about how important the environment was and how it should be treated as such.
“Policymakers and the public would benefit from research into the possible effects of Everglades restoration on water quality in the estuaries of Martin and Lee Counties,” concluded the report.Read More
When pigs get out of their pens, they can really tear up a landscape. Five million pigs in 39 states can tear up a lot of landscape.
“They’re one of the top 100 invasive species in the world. Anywhere wild pigs are not natural and they show up, they do a lot of damage to other species,” said Dwayne Etter, a research specialist with Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources and a part of a research team that tested a new feral swine monitoring technique that uses environmental DNA.
Environmental DNA (eDNA) is genetic material organisms lose in the environment. If a pig crosses a creek or defecates in it, a researcher, in theory, should be able to pull that DNA out of the water further downstream.Read More
