Construction on the new EOAS building

Interested in seeing what’s happening with the construction of the new EOAS science building? We have two cameras following the construction. The first is an EOAS camera atop the Love Building facing east. The second is courtesy of Ajax Construction, atop the Carraway Building facing northwest.  Follow the link below for both views.

A 94-million-year-old climate change event that severely imperiled marine organisms may provide some unnerving insights into long-term trends in our modern oceans, according to a Florida State University researcher. In a study published today in the journal Science Advances, Assistant Professor of Geology Jeremy Owens traces a 50,000-year period of ocean deoxygenation preceding an ancient climate event that dramatically disturbed global ocean chemistry and led to the extinction of many marine organisms.

A team of Florida State University scientists has discovered that chemical weathering, a process in which carbon dioxide breaks down rocks and then gets trapped in sediment, can happen at a much faster rate than scientists previously assumed and could potentially counteract some of the current and future climate change caused by humans.

Eastern Africa faces some of the most extreme climatic events in the world. This includes not only devastating droughts, but also extreme flood conditions, sometimes in the same year. These extreme events have increased in both frequency and intensity in recent years. EOAS Professor Dr. Sharon Nicholson recently published an article in Reviews of Geophysics that gives an overview of the current state of knowledge on the region’s rainfall regime, and its temporal and spatial variability.
