  • In Nahant, NU eyes federal funds for climate research

    Boston Globe - 07/08/2014

    A rocky bluff overlooking Massachusetts Bay has had many lives: a US senator’s estate, a World War II bunker, a Cold War missile base. Now, Northeastern University is gambling that it can turn the location into a research magnet for tens of millions in federal dollars to study climate change.

    Studying the impact of global warming on — in Washington parlance — “urban coastal sustainability” has become one of the hottest sources of federal dollars, and Northeastern officials believe its modest marine science center in Nahant can win up to $25 million a year in US research grants and boost the university’s profile in the process.
