  • Genotypic diversity of Sabellid worms from carbon dioxide vents 

    de Guzman, Heidi Jane; Borda, Elizabeth; Schulze, Anja (2012-06-01)
    Marine carbon dioxide vents are very common in the Mediterranean Sea, especially around Italy and Greece where they typically eject volcanic fluids containing up to 1-2% hydrogen sulfide. Natural CO2 venting sites have ...
  • High degree of connectivity among amphi-Atlantic populations of Hermodice carunculata (Amphinomidae, Annelida) 

    Ahrens, Joseph; Borda, Elizabeth; Campbell, Alexandra; Schulze, Anje (2012-06-01)
    Polychaete annelids in the genus Hermodice exhibit an amphi-Atlantic distribution extending into the Gulf of Mexico as well as the Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas. Currently, this genus contains two nominal species; H. ...
  • History repeats: a demand-supply price case study of the 19th century Diamond-back terrapin population collapse 

    Carter, Josh E.; Walker, Raven D.; Jones, Dr. Glenn A. (2012-06-01)
    Increasing demand for turtles in the Chinese and Indonesian food markets is leading to severe decline in several Southeast Asian species and an accompanying increase in freshwater turtle imports from the US. The Diamondback ...
  • Identifying Limiting Nutrients in Galveston Bay Seagrass Communities 

    Weisse, Mikeala (2011-07-27)
    Seagrasses, an ecologically important group of marine plants, have declined in worldwide areal extent by 29% since 1879, in part due to nutrient enrichment. To reduce this decline, it is important to discover the limiting ...
  • Interpreting sediment transport pathways: an investigation of Hurricane Ike's impact on Offatt's Bayou, Texas 

    Laverty, Paul; Decker, S; Davis, M; Bennett, R (2012-06-01)
    Hurricane Ike made landfall near Galveston, TX with a 3-4m storm surge, inundating the surrounding area. The purpose of this study was to determine the existence or absence of a sedimentary deposit produced by Hurricane ...
  • Isolation and comparison of exopolymeric substances (EPS) from five dominant phytoplankton species in the Gulf of Mexico 

    Kennady, Benjamin J; Chuang, Chia-Ying; Ho, Yi-fang; Schwehr, Kathleen A.; Santschi, Peter H. (2012-06-01)
    Interest in EPS has recently been increasing as they have a great impact on many of geochemical processes, including prediction of POC flux, trace element, nanoparticle, and radionuclide scavenging, and tracing different ...
  • Mercury contamination in Gulf of Mexico fish 

    Kuklyte, Ligita; Rowe, Gilbert (2012-06-01)
    Mercury is a toxic, naturally occurring element that is hazardous to humans at high concentrations. Natural sources include degassing of the earth and volcanic activities; however human-related activities contributing to ...

  • Offshore natural gas hydrate harvesting system 

    Owens, Andrew; Bradberry, Ross; Unger, Ben; Cummings, Chris (2012-06-01)
    The purpose of this project is to design a system that will allow for production of methane gas from a deep-sea Methane Hydrate Harvester. A satellite host system was chosen in a feasibility report, released in September ...
  • Pelton wheel turbine generator 

    Yonts, Chris; Ramsey, Drew; Monguia, Ashley; Johnstone, Justin (2012-06-01)
    The purpose of this project is to design and construct an efficient pelton wheel turbine generator. The idea of our project came from the topic of hydropower and the generation of renewable energy. This particular turbine ...
  • Polychaete feeding behavior and geographical distribution in the Gulf of Mexico 

    Carvalho, Russell; Schulze, Anja (2012-06-01)
    Polychaete annelids contribute greatly to macrofaunal species diversity in dynamic deep-sea ecosystems. The aim of our study was to assess the functional composition of deep-sea polychaete assemblages in the Gulf of Mexico. ...
