HAPPY FEET III: ADÉLIE Penguin Population is Actually on the Rise

IACS Affiliate Heather Lynch

The first global census of the Adélie penguin, long considered a key indicator species to monitor and understand the effects of climate change and fishing in the Southern Ocean, has revealed its population (3.79 million breeding pairs) to be 53 percent larger than previously estimated. By using high-resolution satellite imagery, Stony Brook University ecologist Heather Lynch, PhD, and University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering researcher Michelle LaRue, PhD, have applied a new method that permits regular monitoring of Adélie penguins across their entire breeding range, and by extension the health of the Southern Ocean ecosystem.

Explosions Shed Light on his Research

Alan Calder

On a typical day at work, Professor Alan Calder sits in front of the computer in his office in the Earth and Space Sciences building at Stony Brook University and looks at multidimensional computerized models of type Ia supernovae, one class of bright stellar explosions. He uses computational astrophysics to simulate these explosions, but in simpler terms - he blows up stars. Read more ...
