A new Nature Geoscience paper co-authored by MIT Darwin Project member, research scientist, Gael Forget finds that global ocean heat transport is dominated by heat export from the tropical Pacific.
MIT Darwin Group Research Scientist Jonathan Lauderdale and Postdoc Maike Sonnewald, use a simple game involving Swedish Fish, inspired by principles put forth by ecologist Crawford Stanley (Buzz) Holling, to model connections between food abundance and predator consumption at MIT Museum’s 2019 Nautical Day, February 23rd. Continue reading Darwin Goes to Nautical Day at the MIT Museum
Modeling the diverse world of phytoplankton opens up a predictive view of our own. MIT’s Spectrum Magazine spotlight’s the Darwin Project. Continue reading Digital Ocean
