COAPS Role Studying the Science of Storms

As we move through peak hurricane season, it’s interesting to see how local research organizations are studying these storms. The Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies (COAPS) in the Park is one of the leading weather research institutions based on grant funding from NSF. COAPS not only focuses on the science of severe weather, but also relationships severe weather has with health and agriculture.


Oxygen Depletion in Ancient Oceans Caused Major Mass Extinction

Researchers at the MagLab have finally been able to confirm the reason why the Lau/Kozlowskii extinction took place over 420 million year ago. The extinction wiped out 23 percent of all marine animals from the face of the planet due to rapid and widespread depletion of oxygen in the global oceans.
