  • Meet 2018 Students of Ph.D. in Ocean Science and Engineering

    Six students join the second cohort of the Ph.D. program

    Students will specialize in Marine Products, Cryosphere, Climate Extremes, Marine Living Resources, and Coastal Ocean Systems

  • From REU to Ph.D. at Georgia Tech

    Binging on videos in a biology lab helped Melissa Ruszczyk find the right graduate school

    Binging on videos in a biology lab helped Melissa Ruszczyk find the right graduate school.

    An REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) program is what first brought Melissa Ruszczyk to Georgia Tech. The summer experience was a big factor in her decision to return for her Ph.D.

  • Researchers Chosen to Examine Antarctic Glacier at Risk of Collapsing

    Autonomous vehicle will dive under ice to explore dynamics of Thwaites Glacier

    Researchers will send Icefin under the ice of a remote glacier in West Antarctica.

    A team of Georgia Institute of Technology researchers will head to West Antarctica next winter as part of an international collaboration to explore a melting glacier that could significantly affect global sea levels. The Thwaites Glacier drains the ice from an area roughly the size of Florida, accounting for around 4 percent of current global sea-level rise — an amount that has doubled since the mid-1990s and looks to be accelerating.
