New Hamsphire Association of Natural Resource Scientists (NHANRS) still has room for several speakers, and students are encouraged to participate. Reports on salt marsh restoration, endagered habitat and pollution detection are scheduled. Please consider presenting your research on a pertinent coastal wetland topic from fisheries to climate change and anything in between.

What will Earth's climate be like in a decade--or sooner? And what will it be like where you live, and around the globe? To help find answers, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and other federal agencies have awarded new grants to study the consequences of climate variability and change.

Volunteer water sampling "snapshot" will help provide insight into NH water quality
Over fifty volunteers around the state are taking a "snapshot" of the water quality in New Hampshire's rivers and streams. They won't be using cameras, they'll be taking water samples as part of a new Plymouth State University-led project aimed at improving the understanding of the state's water resources and providing data to be used by resource managers, state agencies, researchers, and educators.

To assess the impact of losses due to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill on the Gulf of Mexico, officials should consider the broad realm of goods and services provided by the Gulf to inform decisions for restoration, finds a new report from the National Research Council.

Heidi Wachter, Sarah Flynn, and Taylor Scarponi, students at Great Bay Community College, are wearing boots to keep the wet and the chill out. In the center of the stream is a tall white tube marking the site of two probes that monitor the rise and fall of the water and its conductivity and temperature. Wachter stands midstream, twisting the cap off the first probe and handing it to Scarponi, who dries it and downloads the data into a shuttle, to be uploaded onto a computer back at the lab.

NH EPSCoR and Campus Compact for NH have established a seed-grant program for faculty at undergraduate higher ed institutions to broaden participation and build research capacity in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) disciplines. Funding may go towards exploring a concept or integrating research experiences into an undergraduate STEM curriculum.

At the May 8 event, the burgers and chorizo sliders were definitely a favorite among attendees, but it was the steamed mussels that proved to be popular both on and off the menu. The effects of climate change on mussels, oysters, and other shellfish that call the Great Bay Estuary their home was the key topic in that evening’s discussion.
“During the summertime, the Great Bay is really warm and that warm body is unique within the Gulf of Maine,” says Steve Jones, research associate professor of marine sciences at UNH, one of the three speakers at the event. “Water temperatures are increasing throughout the year now, and we are interested in microorganisms that may turn pathogenic—disease causing.”

Graduate Students Inspire the Next Generation of STEM Scholars
On this day, Lauren Koenig, a first-year Ph.D. student of natural resources with a focus on stream and river biogeochemistry, explains her research methods to a group of honors students visiting from Dover High School. This field trip is part of the high school’s Biotechnology Program and affords the high-schoolers a first-hand view of high-level science research.
