Monitoring for Runup Signals to Reduce Sneaker Wave Risk

Around the world, the occasional phenomenon known as sneaker waves poses a threat to beachgoers. Unusually large sneaker waves in 2016 and 2018 prompted Oregon State University (OSU) researchers to investigate these mysterious events. The research revealed the presence of runup signals that can provide earlier warnings to officials, reducing risk from these dangerous events. Dr. Tuba Ozkan-Haller of OSU spoke to EM about the research . “Sneaker waves occur in the Pacific Northwest, but they're also a worldwide phenomenon,” explains Dr. Ozkan-Haller. “Certain kinds of coastlines appear to be more well-suited to the occurrence of these waves. There are some characteristics that we know play into it, but there's still a lot of unknowns too.

Climate Change Asymmetry Transforming Food Webs

Recent research from a University of Guelph (U of G) team reveals that warmer temperatures caused by climate change are forcing species to alter their behavior, causing food webs in Ontario lakes to transform. As temperatures warm, larger species hunt new prey in deeper waters, changing the ways nutrients and energy flow in lakes and triggering a “rewiring” of food webs. Dr. Timothy Bartley , study lead author and a post-doctoral researcher in the U of G's Department of Integrative Biology , spoke to EM about the work . “I got started on this when I first began graduate school and joined an ongoing project, which was a collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry ,” explains Dr. Bartley.
