A knowledge gap in nature is nothing new, but a gap in the research area of the Alaskan coastline is enough to drive a group of researchers, UTM Biology Professor Bailey McMeans among them, to further investigate the ocean and land processes that shape ecosystems in the Arctic over time and could have important effects on local Native (Iñupiat) communities.

The five-year grant from NSF will establish a Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program and site along the northern coast of Alaska.

Here’s a study tip for students cramming for upcoming exams: focusing on larger amounts of information for shorter bits of time – we are talking milliseconds – can be more effective than mulling over smaller amounts of material for longer durations.
