Projecting the effects of climate change on leatherback turtle habitat within the US Northeast shelf

We are evaluating future climate change impacts on leatherback turtle habitat within the US Northeast shelf using high-resolution global climate model projections and empirical data on leatherback turtle movements and habitat characteristics

Foraging ecology of ocean sunfish and leatherback sea turtles

We are conducting a comparative analysis of foraging ecology of ocean sunfish, Mola mola, and leatherback turtles, Dermochelys coriacea, from a common feeding area in the western North Atlantic using stable isotope analysis

Habitat sampling and subsurface observations of leatherback turtles with an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) 'TurtleCam'

We are studying leatherback turtles off Massachusetts with a REMUS-100 AUV equipped with a custom navigation system, cameras, and environmental sensors to understand turtle behavior and habitat near fixed fishing gear

Effect of preparation and preservation methods on gelatinous zooplankton stable isotope values

We are conducting a methods comparison to investigate the effects of different preservation and drying methods on the stable isotope values of gelatinous zooplankton collected in the western North Atlantic

Ecology of juvenile Kemp's ridley and green sea turtles in New England

We are using satellite telemetry and remotely-sensed environmental data to determine post-release behavior, migratory movements and habitat selection of rehabilitated juvenile Kemp's ridley and green sea turtles found in New England

Leatherback turtle behavior in North Atlantic ecoregionsĀ 

We study the orientation, migratory movements, dive behavior and habitat characteristics of leatherback turtles in the North Atlantic using satellite telemetry
