Using new environmental DNA (eDNA) technology, it’s possible to rapidly identify and determine quantities of different fish species in high-flow marine conditions.
That’s what the Innovative Solutions for De-risking Species Detections in Tidal Energy Environmental Effects Monitoring Programs project found in recent experiments conducted at Dalhousie…
Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Oceanography, Dalhousie University“For me, it has been exciting to learn how to use new instruments and to test how the different instruments and techniques, that we typically use in the field, work and compare in both controlled environments and energetic tidal channels. This research matters because turbulence measurements are difficult in highly-energetic environments, turbulence varies spatially and in time, and it is not easy to accurately capture its variability.”

A chance encounter at a summer job during his studies toward a BSc in chemistry and geochemistry helped Martin Fowler find the exact intersection of chemistry and geology best suited to him.
“We were expected to get a summer job that was related to the…
