Fall Science Lecture:   Tiny Prophets of Climate Change   
                                      Presented by Alexandra Bausch, the Museum’s Scientist-in-Residence

Alexandra Bausch, Scientist-in-Residence at the Hudson River Museum for Fall 2016, discusses her research on organisms—sea butterflies, bioluminescent filter feeders, and crystal-shelled microscopic plants ─ that are predictors of climate change. Bausch, a doctoral candidate at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, discusses her research in the Arabian Sea as well as in the laboratory, which focuses on these organisms that are extremely sensitive to changes in ocean temperature and acidity.
