Understanding where marine litter goes once it’s in the ocean is a big part of understanding the issue and helping individual countries and the international community to develop plans to deal with the problem.
Florida State faculty are among the world leaders in the study of hurricanes. From forecasting to insurance to ecological aftermath, FSU experts are available to discuss the many ways these storms impact people, property and the environment. These faculty members are available to answer media questions and provide perspective for news stories throughout the 2021 hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through Nov. 30.
Graduate student researchers from two College of Arts and Sciences departments have been selected as finalists for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s 2021 John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship Program. The fellowship, part of the National Sea Grant College Program, has provided educational and professional experiences for graduate students interested in ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources and policy decisions affecting these resources since 1979.
Opeyemi Kehinde is pursuing a master’s degree in oceanography in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science, part of the College of Arts and Sciences. Kehinde also conducts research at the Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies and is an international student from Nigeria, where he earned a bachelor of science degree in marine biology.
Carbon emissions and climate change are key issues in this presidential election. Regardless of who voters choose as the country’s next president, the United States is scheduled to leave the Paris Agreement — an international accord with the goal of limiting global climate change — on Nov. 4, although Democratic candidate Joe Biden has said he would seek to rejoin the agreement. Florida State University has faculty members available to offer context on climate change and the Paris Agreement.
Rising junior Jonathan Marcus is the latest Florida State University student to receive an Ernest F. Hollings Undergraduate Scholarship from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The nationally competitive scholarship includes up to $19,000 of academic assistance over two years and a 10-week, paid summer internship with NOAA.
From prediction to insurance consideration to ecological aftermath, Florida State University experts are among the world leaders in the study of hurricanes and their impact on people, property and the environment. These experts are available to answer media questions and provide perspective for news stories throughout the 2020 hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through Nov. 30.
New research from a team of Florida State University scientists shows that rapid weather variability as a result of climate change could increase the risk of a flu epidemic in some highly populated regions in the late 21st century.
“I think the day I got an offer from IBM, I also got an invitation to interview at Google, but I turned them down,” recent Florida State University graduate Randy Bruno-Piverger said, with a soft laugh of disbelief.
In August, Randy Bruno-Piverger began his new job as a software engineer for IBM. Earlier that same month, he graduated from FSU with two degrees — and honors— in philosophy and computer science
Florida State climate experts and their collaborators will use NASA Earth Science satellite and modeling products to provide actionable, localized climate information to regional water utilities in order to aid them as they make critical decisions about water resource allocation.
