High degree of connectivity among amphi-Atlantic populations of Hermodice carunculata (Amphinomidae, Annelida)
Polychaete annelids in the genus Hermodice exhibit an amphi-Atlantic distribution extending into the Gulf of Mexico as well as the Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas. Currently, this genus contains two nominal species; H. ...
Pelton wheel turbine generator
The purpose of this project is to design and construct an efficient pelton wheel turbine generator. The idea of our project came from the topic of hydropower and the generation of renewable energy. This particular turbine ...
Active heave compensation
Active heave compensation is used on light construction ships used for subsea construction to compensate the crane's load from heaving up and down when the ship is being pushed up and down by swells.
Dark side of birding: perceptions of bird watching's negative ecological impacts
Birders, in the pursuit wild birds, can negatively impact birds and critical bird habitat. Often, competition for space or resources can create conflict among recreational users and bird conservation initiatives. This study ...
Genotypic diversity of Sabellid worms from carbon dioxide vents
Marine carbon dioxide vents are very common in the Mediterranean Sea, especially around Italy and Greece where they typically eject volcanic fluids containing up to 1-2% hydrogen sulfide. Natural CO2 venting sites have ...
Eurythoe complanata: more cryptic species in the Pacific?
Mitochondrial DNA data has shown that Eurythoe complanata is a cryptic species complex characterized by deeply divergent sympatric populations in the Atlantic, and on either side of Panama, despite almost no morphological ...
Polychaete feeding behavior and geographical distribution in the Gulf of Mexico
Polychaete annelids contribute greatly to macrofaunal species diversity in dynamic deep-sea ecosystems. The aim of our study was to assess the functional composition of deep-sea polychaete assemblages in the Gulf of Mexico. ...
Mercury contamination in Gulf of Mexico fish
Mercury is a toxic, naturally occurring element that is hazardous to humans at high concentrations. Natural sources include degassing of the earth and volcanic activities; however human-related activities contributing to ...
