Georgia Tech’s Frank Stewart joins global call for more research on the impact on microbes.
While global warming shrinks ice caps, it's expanding “oxygen minimum zones,” where newly discovered bacteria are depleting waters of nitrogen, a nutrient essential to life. This could be creating imbalances.
Dr. Frank Stewart in the School of Biology was recently awarded a grant from the Georgia Improving Teacher Quality (ITQ) Grants Program to renew the Summer Workshop in Marine Science (SWiMS).
Frank Stewart has been awarded $571,000 to investigate how bacteria control interactions in methane and nitrogen cycles in the ocean.
