Research at the ends of the Earth
Over the last year, Rhian Waller, associate professor of marine science at the University of Maine, has been to the ends of the Earth to study how changing oceans are affecting cold-water corals and what those changes may eventually mean in places like the Gulf of Maine. Waller's research team included three undergraduate marine science students who accompanied her to Antarctica and to Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska to collect data and retrieve samples. The team recently gathered to discuss their findings and to talk about how the experience helped inform their future careers.
