The Ocean 180 video challenge is to create a video abstract, which is a short (180 second) piece summarizing the results of a recently-published, peer-reviewed study on any ocean-science related topic. Justin Ridge entered and chose a recent GRL paper … Continue reading
Justin Ridge found out last week that he is one of six winners, nation wide, for excellence in coastal and marine graduate study. “Justin Ridge, a Ph.D. student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is using innovative … Continue reading
There are many reasons to collect cores from a beach. One of the most interesting is to look back in time and see what environments used to be where the beach is today. The core is like a time machine, … Continue reading
The southwestern half of Onslow Beach, NC is starved of sand. Using a side-scan sonar, we imaged peat and organic-rich sediment at the seafloor just seaward from where the waves start to break. Offshore from that, Miocene rock is imaged … Continue reading
Sea-level anomalies are periods greater than 2 weeks when the water level at the beach is high. They are not necessarily related to storm surge or sea-level rise, rather they are forced by changes in ocean currents. On the US … Continue reading
