  Silver Nanoparticles Behaving Strangely
Funded by Ohio Sea Grant, researchers have completed a project examining the behavior of silver nanoparticles in freshwater. Nanosilver has a number of applications in food storage and medical supplies, but also produces silver ions, which can be toxic to aquatic organisms when they enter ecosystems such as Lake Erie.
  Natl. Marine Fisheries Service Fellowships
Ohio Sea Grant is seeking graduate student applicants for two 2013 fellowship opportunities with the National Marine Fisheries Service: one fellowship in Marine Resource Economics, and one in Population Dynamics. Applications are due to Ohio Sea Grant by January 25, 2013, with fellowships beginning on June 1, 2013.
  Supporting Students, Honoring Memories
The Stone Lab experience sticks with visitors to Ohio Sea Grant’s research, education, and outreach facility on Lake Erie, be they guests, students, or researchers. But Lydia Bailey, Treasurer of the Friends of Stone Lab, went one step further when she created a scholarship endowment in honor of her father, Arley Duff Blankenship.
The Road So Far
Ohio State University’s Climate Change Outreach Team has accomplished a lot in its first three years. From a webinar series that has reached 5,000 attendees to a climate change curriculum that has been downloaded more than 700 times since its release in June, the team is going strong, with more plans for the future.
Stone Lab Students Get a Glimpse of Research
Stone Lab’s Research Experience for Undergraduates Scholarship Program allows students to conduct real, in-the-field research alongside top scientists. Working closely with their research supervisor, they collect data, learn how to write up their discoveries, and give a final presentation to their peers, learning the research process from start to finish and gaining valuable, professional experience.
Predicting Harmful Algal Blooms
This summer, NOAA issued its first-ever seasonal harmful algal bloom (HAB) forecast for Lake Erie’s western basin at an all-day press event at Stone Lab. Now, with the 2012 HABs season over, Ohio Sea Grant & Stone Lab Director Jeff Reutter reflects on the success of the predictions.
