“We will be studying an ocean region that every year exhibits one of the largest natural phytoplankton blooms on Earth,” said Mike Behrenfeld, NAAMES principal investigator from Oregon State University in Corvallis. “Phytoplankton are not only influenced by climate, but they also influence climate. That’s why we’re out here in the North Atlantic in the middle of November.” (see also Reuters)

Students rally for free education (Gazette-Times)

A small but vocal group of demonstrators rallied at Oregon State University on Thursday afternoon to protest the soaring cost of a college education while similar scenes played out on scores of other campuses across the country. About 30 students and supporters convened on OSU’s main quadrangle and then marched to the administration building, calling for free tuition, the abolition of student debt and a $15-an-hour minimum wage for all campus jobs.
