Impacts of environmental disasters
Physics professor Dr. Natalia Sidorovskaia is leading an interdisciplinary consortium of 24 scientists and students that will study the impact of the environmental disaster on endangered sperm whales, beaked whales and dolphins. Changes in marine mammal distribution and abundance can impact and reflect the health of the entire deep-water ecosystem. Her research seeks to help understand what may happen to marine mammals during and after events, such as oil spills or other environmental and man-made stressors, and help guide ocean management decisions about conservation, regulations, and mitigation.
