For a long time, science was pursued in it’s purest form. If you are a physicist, you would restrict yourself to the realm of tiny particles and abstract concepts (or that’s what it seemed like for most part of my childhood). Similarly, biologists would stick to the fields of medicine and/or studying life forms. Chemists […]Read More Making a mixture: Importance of inter-disciplinary work for the future

One of them was carrying a figure; […]Read More “What evil are we burning away by adding pollutants into our atmosphere?”
Surfers have always had a close relationship with marine lifeforms and oceanographic processes. They are probably best suited to understand the changes occuring here, having spent their entire lives next to the ocean. Recognizing that, we now have the emergence of Surfing Ecology! The Surfing Ecologist logo. Thanks to Jessica Maris for the kelp art, […]Read More Surfing and Science: A new partnership!
