  • What are Core Samplers?

    A core, in marine research, is a cylindrical section taken from sediments underlying a water body. Core samplers, the instruments used to obtain cores, range from the simple to the complex. The variety of corer types reflect the breadth and variety of marine research. For example, the simplest corers are hand-operated types used in shallow waters to collect sediment cores containing fauna. ...

  • Scientists, a new quota species?

    Globally, marine conservation is high on the agenda. The need to protect and conserve species and habitats from deleterious anthropogenic impacts has never been of more concern than it is currently. However, that is not to say we, as a society, are achieving effective marine conservation, in fact we are far from it. Global summits have come and gone, as have the targets they set for marine ...

  • Interviews: Ken Buesseler, Researcher into marine discharges at Fukushima

    We as scientists do have a responsibility and I hope to be able to contribute in some way“ Ken Buesseler, researcher at the Wood Hoods Oceanographic Institute is investigating the radioactivity leaked from the Fukushima nuclear power station, initially from data facilitated by the TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) and then from samples gathered in situ. He believes that official bodies ...

  • Advantages of Underwater drone Development

    First of all, the traditional underwater operation, manual operation are very complex, and the personal safety can not be fully guaranteed from its development background. Moreover, with the increasingly extensive human marine activities, the development of various industries on water and underwater is accelerating. The demand for underwater UAVs will continue to rise in the future, which is the ...

  • Marine ecotourism as a potential agent for sustainable development in Kaikoura, New Zealand

    The terms "sustainability" and "ecotourism" have become much used in recent years, yet there have been few examinations of how they might apply in practical cases. Kaikoura, a small coastal town (population 3600) on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island, has a rapidly developing tourism industry. This industry has helped to transform the town from an economically ...

  • Tekran instruments—monitoring around the world

    Tekran provides trace-level mercury analytical and monitoring technology for a variety of applications including laboratory-based sample analysis, continuous point-source emissions and ambient air monitoring. This article focuses on and highlights the results of an application of Tekran’s Ambient Air Mercury Speciation System. In contrast to most other heavy metals, mercury (Hg) and mercury ...

  • New approaches for monitoring the marine environment: the case of antifouling paints

    Protection of ships hulls against biofouling has been a problem since man began sailing the seas. The most common protections are specially produced antifouling paints. These paints could be broadly classified in three main groups, or generations, depending on the technology applied: first generation copper-based, second generation organotin-based, and the new, third generation, organotin-free ...

  • Reproducibility of Borehole Shear Test Results in Marine Clay

    An investigation was conducted to determine the variability of borehole shear test results obtained in testing soft and medium consistency marine clays. A statistical comparison of the results of stage tests obtained by different operators at two test depths at a research site is made. An additional comparison of the results obtained from stage tests and fresh shearing and a brief discussion of ...

  • Stationary Spiraling Eddies and Self-Cleaning Processes in the White Sea in Presence of Climate Change and Their Relationship with Ecology of the Greenland Seal: Results of Airborne-Satellite-In Situ Study

    Pollution of the marginal Arctic seas and rising of toxic contaminants are extremely dangerous for marine and coastal ecosystems and for marine mammals as representatives of a high level of fodder chains in the ocean. Ecology of ice-associated forms of marine mammals, population health and animal welfare are strongly depended from the different environmental processes and phenomena. Operational ...

  • Research on buried pipe corrosion assessment using corrosion sensors

    This research aims to establish a water pipeline replacement plan that employs soil-corrosion evaluation technology and utilizes easy-to-use corrosion sensors by assessing the performances and validating operation methods based on verification experiments. Since 2005, we have assessed the performances of two different types of sensor, and have confirmed that bar-type sensors can detect soil ...

  • Measurement of TOC in High-Salt Sample

    The quantity of organic matter in seawater is important in the research and monitoring of marine pollution as an indicator of organic pollution. The salt content in seawater is typically about 3.5 %, but using the Shimadzu total organic carbon analyzer, it is possible to measure the TOC directly without dilution or other pretreatment procedures. Here, we introduce an example of measurement of ...

  • Future Development Trend of Underwater Drone

    1. Technological innovation will be the eternal theme           As a highly technology-intensive and systematic project, underwater vehicle mainly includes six technologies: simulation, intelligent control, underwater target detection and recognition, underwater navigation (positioning), communication and energy system. Compared with developed countries, there is ...

  • Stocking up filtration equipment for marine expeditions

    February is here, and for many research teams across the world, that means it’s time to set sail. Shoulder seasons are an important time to conduct marine research because many algal and microbe species are in bloom. Whether your research has you voyaging the open sea or cruising in coastal waters, Sterlitech is here to stock the ship with all your laboratory filtration needs. We are proud ...

  • Modelling of E. coli distribution in coastal areas subjected to combined sewer overflows

    Rivers, lakes and the sea were the natural receivers of raw urban waste and storm waters for a long time but the low sustainability of such practice, the increase of population and a renewed environmental sensibility increased researcher interest in the analysis and mitigation of the impact of urban waters on receiving water bodies (RWB). In Europe, the integrated modelling of drainage systems ...

  • Marine litter – a growing threat worldwide

    Increasing amounts of litter are ending up in the world’s oceans and harming the health of ecosystems, killing animals when they become trapped or swallow the litter. Human health is also at risk, as plastics may break down into smaller pieces that may subsequently end up in our food. These are just a few of the problems emerging from the waste collecting in our seas. There are now ...
