Press release from EMBRC's UK partner (Scottish Association for Marine Science, SAMS): Antarctica’s ‘green snow’ to spread with global warming

Antarctica’s ‘green snow’ to spread with global warming

A scientist who led the creation of the first ever large-scale map of microscopic algae on the snow covered Antarctic coastline – so-called ‘green snow’ – has joined the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) to continue his research.

Dr Matt Davey comes to the Oban-based institute from the University of Cambridge and has today published findings in the journal Nature Communications that show the current distribution of the algae and how they are likely to spread as the global temperature increases.

New RI Communications Toolkit

Increasing the visibility of research infrastructures? There’s a toolkit for that. 

The “Communication Toolkit for European Research Infrastructures” provides an easy and useful set of tools, guidelines and resources to improve the communication strategy and activities of research infrastructures. Its common use is expected to increase the individual and collective visibility of research infrastructures, by aligning key-messages and improving how different stakeholders perceive them.
