  • Deep thinking on the world’s oceans

    Changes in deep ocean conditions affect global climate, with deep warming contributing to sea-level rise and the deep ocean absorbing atmospheric carbon dioxide. To assess change, researchers determine the amount of energy (in the form of heat), water and gases (including carbon dioxide), entering and exiting the ocean. They rely on valuable but infrequent deep ocean measurements from ships, ...

  • Encouraging signals from the deep

    World attention is focused these days on the rescue efforts to free 33 trapped miners from a collapsed mine in Chile. It is a story of heroism, determination and technological achievement in the face of almost unimaginable obstacles. But despite the joy of the (hopefully) successful Chilean rescue efforts, there remains a larger global issue regarding the social, economic and environmental ...

  • REMOTE LEVEL MONITORING OF DEEP RIVERS

    Remote River Monitoring with SmartScan25 SolidAT solution for Remote River Level Monitoring is now enhanced with the introduction of GaugerTX. Until recently, GaugerGSM sensors were deployed, allowing measurements of river depth ranges up to 9.5 meters (31’). GaugerGSM are ultrasonic level sensors compactly integrated with GSM communications. GaugerGSM, together with GaugerNET, a web-based ...

  • Shedding light on the cinderellas of the deep sea

    Ocean sponges from shallower waters have already been shown to be valuable sources for new medicinal drugs to treat cancers and for antibiotics, and it is expected that deepwater sponges will be equally valuable, if not more so. A groundbreaking new report, Deep-sea Sponge Grounds: Reservoirs of Biodiversity, which consolidates knowledge on the biology and ecology of deep-water sponge grounds, ...

  • Moving Bed Reactors

    Mobile bed biological systems (MBBR) have experimented a strong impulse in the last times due to their flexibility and simplicity in enlargement works for existing WWTP and application in newly constructed plants, since it allows modular facilities, greatly replacing the presence gained by the MBR (membrane bioreactor) system with lower costs. All this has been possible thanks to high ...

  • Deep concern over invisible threat to Antarctic glaciers

    The Antarctic ice shelf is under threat from a silent, invisible agency – and the rate of melting of glaciers has trebled in the last two decades. The ocean waters of the deep circumpolar current that swirl around the continent have been getting measurably warmer and nearer the ocean surface over the last 40 years, and now they could be accelerating glacier flow by melting the ...

  • New directions for protecting deep-sea biodiversity

    The deep sea is vulnerable to human impacts and environmental changes. A recent report provides an insight into deep-sea ecosystems and makes recommendations for future research and policies to protect deep-sea species and habitats. Two thirds of the Earth's surface is covered by ocean waters more than 200 metres deep, referred to collectively as the deep sea. Yet there remains a lack of ...

  • Scientists discover carbon buried deep in ancient soils

    The unearthing of significant carbon stores in deep soils by scientists from the UK and Australia has substantial implications for climate change activities globally. Professor Mark Tibbett of Cranfield University and Professor Richard Harper of Murdoch University in Australia found carbon stocks buried deep in soils were two to five times more than would commonly be ...

  • India backs exploration of rare earths in deep sea

    With China controlling most of valuable rare-earth mineral supplies, India makes a strategic move to back exploration off its own coast, writes Paula Park. India has joined the race to explore and develop deep-sea mining for rare earth elements — further complicating the geopolitics surrounding untapped sources of valuable minerals beneath the oceans. The country is building ...
