Study from researchers in MIT’s Darwin Project suggests sea ice blocks the flow of carbon both into and out of the ocean, in roughly equal measure. Continue reading Antarctic sea ice may not cap carbon emissions as much as previously thought

Darwin Project study led by Jonathan Lauderdale finds Earth’s oceans contain just the right amount of iron; adding more may not improve their ability to absorb carbon dioxide. Continue reading Seeding Oceans with Iron may not Impact Climate Change
Look out for the Darwin team, sharing their work at this year’s Ocean Sciences conference taking place February 16-21 in San Diego, California.

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.
