Science Nation Features Video of UMaine Researchers Studying in Greenland

A team of University of Maine researchers studying diatom algae populations and their effects on climate change in Greenland was featured in a report by The National Science Foundation’s Science Nation.

The researchers gathered samples of diatoms — a type of algae that respond rapidly to environmental change — to study how climate change is affecting the Arctic ecosystem.

The story and video focus on Jasmine Saros’ recent NSF-funded research. Saros is the associate director of UMaine’s Climate Change Institute and is a professor in the School of Biology and Ecology. Her research team included graduate student Ben Burpee, who was partially supported by a Dan and Betty Churchill Exploration Grant through the Climate Change Institute to do related research.
