  • The UMCES Appalachian Laboratory's Eric Davidson and Xin Zhang are collaborating with partners involved in agriculture around the world to develop a Sustainable Agriculture Matrix (SAM). When finalized, SAM will serve as a kind of report card, assessing a country’s performance in agriculture with economic, social, and environmental indicators and providing policymakers with a more holistic understanding of agricultural trade-offs and decisions in their countries.

  • This morning our scientists left Bermuda for the deep Atlantic on a research cruise to better understand the marine carbon cycle and its role in the global climate. Communications Intern Emily Ramirez is on board and will be blogging about science at sea all week, interviewing graduate students about their experiences and reporting first-hand on the work being done in the deep ocean. Follow along each day at the link below!
