Changing ocean conditions could drive marine species to extinction if they can’t adapt or move to more hospitable waters. Researchers say they could help—if they can accurately predict which species will survive best, and where. Northeastern’s Katie Lotterhos is working to determine whether a machine-learning algorithm could make those predictions accurately.

Examining the rate of dissolved organic carbon outwelling in a salt marsh – the amount and speed carbon is moving out of the system – is important for understanding the extent and impact this outwelling has on broader coastal carbon cycles. A recent paper by Christina Codden and Aron Stubbins of Northeastern’s Stubbins Lab tackles this question, looking at this carbon outwelling patterns at Groves Creek in Georgia.
