  • 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, ...

  • Microplastics discovered in the deep, open ocean

    A unique study by scientists at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) will provide valuable new insights into the concentrations of microplastics in the open ocean from surface to the sea bed. Professor Richard Lampitt and Dr Katsia Pabortsava, who lead microplastic research at NOC, said “There is considerable uncertainty about the concentration and characteristics of the many ...

  • Deep-ocean sentinels on northern climate watch

    Up to 3,000 metres tall and carrying an array of special marine sensors, the moorings were deployed earlier this month as part of an international collaboration to monitor the Timor Passage and Ombai Strait – two strategic deep ocean channels which act as 'chokepoints' in the global system of ocean currents. Valued at over $1 million, the moorings were deployed as part of Australia's ...

  • Southern Ocean winds open window to the deep sea

    The researchers’ findings – published on-line today in Nature Geoscience – provide new insights into natural processes which have a major influence on the rate of climate change. The surface-mixed layer is a crucial pathway between the atmosphere and the deeper layers of the ocean. Changes in the depth of the mixed layer can affect air-sea exchange, carbon and heat storage in the ocean, and the ...

  • Australia’s ocean research ship open to Sydneysiders

    RV Southern Surveyor is the only dedicated Australian research ship equipped to perform marine research in the offshore waters of Australia and Oceania. It is used by Australian universities, CSIRO and other research organisations and their international collaborators to improve our understanding of the marine environment. Australia’s ocean territory is the third largest in the world and only ...

  • European researchers isolate ocean methane-eating microbes

    Researchers from Germany and the US have developed a molecular technique for capturing the microorganisms that are responsible for absorbing 80% of the ocean’s methane (CH4) emissions. The team has since isolated the genes that are involved in taking up the gas. Unbeknownst to many, there are more than 100 million times more micro-organisms in the ocean than there are stars in the visible ...

  • Successful ocean test advances wave energy research

    The newest prototype of a wave energy device being developed by Oregon State University and Columbia Power Technologies was successfully tested last month in the ocean off Newport, Ore., providing valuable data and moving the research program closer to commercialization. In a $1 million research effort during the past year, 18 different “direct drive” wave energy technologies have been evaluated, ...

  • Tracing CO2 elements in the ocean

    The surface waters of the vast Southern Ocean are suffering from 'marine anaemia' – a serious deficiency in the micronutrient iron. Just as iron deficiency negatively affects the health and productivity of humans and other land-based creatures, so it affects the phytoplankton (microscopic marine plants) existing in the oceanic realm. The environmental consequences of this condition restrict ...

  • Oceans are heating up at the double

    Ocean temperatures first collected during one of the great 19th-century voyages of exploration confirm one of the consequences of climate change: humans have managed to warm even the deepest parts of the ocean. A new study in Nature Climate Change calculates that the amount of heat absorbed by the ocean has doubled in the last 18 years. A third of this heat has ...

  • Are the world’s oceans on the brink of disaster?

    An international panel of marine experts warns in a report released today that the world's ocean is at high risk of entering a phase of extinction of marine species unprecedented in human history. The preliminary report arises from the first ever interdisciplinary international workshop to consider the cumulative impact of all stressors affecting the ocean. Considering the latest research across ...

  • Harnessing energy from the oceans

    Forever moving - our restless oceans have enough energy to power the world. As long as the Earth turns and the moon keeps its appointed cycle, the oceans will absorb and dissipate vast amounts of kinetic energy - a renewable energy resource of enormous potential. But harnessing this resource has proven more difficult than first thought. In this the latest installment of the GLOBE-Net Series on ...

  • New EU research to investigate ocean acidification impact on ecosystems

    Emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) through human activities have a well known impact on the Earth's climate. What is not so well known is that the absorption of this CO2 by the oceans is causing inexorable acidification of sea water. But what impact is this phenomenon having on marine organisms and ecosystems? This is a question to which researchers have few answers as yet. That is why the ...
