Loggerhead Sea Turtle

Animals such as sea turtles, which are dependent on temperature to determine gender, are expected to experience an extreme sex ratio bias from projected climate change. FSU researcher Dr. Fuentes and collaborators from Projeto Tamar estimated the primary sex ratio of loggerhead hatchlings from 21 nesting beaches over the last 25 years. The study provided evidence of persistent female bias in Brazil, and most importantly identified male producing beaches and months.

EOAS PostDoc Opportunities

The Department of Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at Florida State University invites applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships in the fields of solid Earth dynamics, isotope geochemistry, and arctic carbon cycling. Candidates should have completed their Ph.D. within the last four years or should expect to complete their degree requirements by time of appointment.

FSU Field Camp 2016

The annual Field Camp in Taos, New Mexico is open for students to register.  The camp (GLY4790), will be held during FSU Summer Semester, May 8 - June 14, 2016. Applications are due to Dr. Farris or Dr. Young by March 1. This field course gives upper level undergraduate and beginning graduate students the observational skills and experience needed to undertake detailed field studies in a variety of geologic settings.

Jason Ducker, Poster Winner, FL Chapter, Air & Waste Mgt. Association

Congratulations go out to our EOAS graduate student Jason Ducker, who works with Dr. Christopher Holmes. Jason recently presented a poster of his research to the Florida Chapter of the Air & Waste Management Association and won second place in their poster competition! Jason studies surface ozone damage to crops and forests in the Eastern United States, including Florida, using advanced flux measurements to infer the ozone dose that enters leaves.
