Earlier this month, members of the MIT Darwin project hosted Benedetto Barone (U Hawaii) and Kate Evans (U Montana) for a week of face-to-face collaboration focused on advancing theory and modeling efforts geared towards exploring mesoscale and submesoscale marine ecological structure in the Subtropical North Pacific.

A new study led by Samuel T. Wilson from the University of Hawai’i, co-authored with Darwin Project researchers John Casey, Stephanie Dutkiewicz, Mick Follows, Christopher Hill, and Oliver Jahn, uses the Darwin ecosystem model embedded within an MITgcm (~2 km) resolution regional physical model of the North Pacific Ocean to study how the input of silicic acid, iron, nitrate, and phosphate along the southeast coast of Hawai‘i impacts nearby phytoplankton productivity.

Reporting by Helen Hill for the MIT Darwin Project
The fourth Workshop on Trait-Based Approaches to Ocean Life, held August 18-21, 2019 at Chicheley Hall in Buckinghamshire in the UK was a wonderful opportunity for Darwin Group members to catch up with former colleagues while sharing current directions in marine ecology viewed through a traits lens.
