Training in Open Science Enables Synthetic Science within the Gulf Research Program
Despite a growing recognition of the need for data science skills in the environmental sciences, opportunities to get applied knowledge and experience are few. For this reason, NCEAS started a Data Science Fellowship program for early career researchers, and we feature four of them in this NCEAS Portrait series.
A working group from the Science and Nature for People Partnership (SNAPP) posits that it is time for river management to account for a crucial element of river ecosystems: people.
Boat International awards NCEAS' executive director Ben Halpern for his work to include oceans in the Planetary Boundaries framework. Halpern catches us up on that work and what this award means for ocean health.
If our future global population ate more seafood from aquatic farming, or aquaculture, to satisfy the anticipated growth in their protein needs, we may be able to substantially reduce one of the biggest environmental impacts of meat production – land use – without giving up meat entirely.
The diversity of relationships between salmon and people in Alaska have been largely absent from the thinking that typically informs salmon management. A research collaboration is seeking to remedy this and support management by making visible the multiplicity of human experiences that are both impacting and impacted by salmon systems in the state.
