YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Underlying every wave that crashes on Rhode Island’s shore are millions of years of geologic history. In this issue, we examine the many surprising ways that geology shapes life along our coast.
41°N: Rhode Island’s Ocean and Coastal Magazine, produced by Rhode Island Sea Grant and the Coastal Institute at the University of Rhode Island, is dedicated to bringing you stories and images that reveal interesting and unexpected details of scientific discoveries, the ocean economy, Rhode Island history, and the lives of people who work on and around the water.
We are committed to ensuring that 41°N is available to all readers free of charge, but we need your help. Your generous donation today will help support the work of our writers, editors, and photographers as they report on Rhode Island’s maritime people, places, and heritage.
