  • 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 ...

  • New Technology for Ocean Acidification Research

    Ocean pH has dropped from approximately 8.2 to 8.1 pH over the past 200 years, representing a 25% increase in acidity. The development of better instruments to measure ocean pH, particularly in the deep ocean, is vital to understanding the magnitude and impact of these changes. High-resolution in-situ measurements of pH in the ocean are now possible with innovative adaptations to ion sensitive ...

  • Time to stop losing ocean data to vandalism

    More must be done to prevent damage of ocean data buoys that costs money, vital data — and lives, say Sidney Thurston and M. Ravichandran. The global community relies on a rapidly expanding ocean observing network to understand the climate and ecosystems, to help warn against ocean-borne hazards such as tsunamis and storm surges caused by cyclones, and to support sea rescue ...

  • Deep-sea mining looms on horizon as UN body issues contracts

    The deep oceans span more than half the globe and their frigid depths have long been known to contain vast, untapped deposits of prized minerals. These treasures of the abyss, however, have always been out of reach to miners. But now, the era of deep seabed mining appears to be dawning fueled by technological advances in robotics and dwindling land-based deposits. Rising demand for copper, ...

  • Tsunami-recording in the deep sea - Data transfer for tsunami early warning system successfully tested

    In order to extend alert times and avoid false alarms, a new seafloor pressure recording system has been designed to detect tsunamis shortly after their development in the open ocean. The project is directed by scientists of the working group ‘Marine Observation Systems’ at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, part of the Helmholtz Association. Successful testing of the ...

  • Plastic pellets everywhere, and diving robot sensors

    The Dr Fridtjof Nansen is plying the waves of the southern Indian Ocean, trawling for trash. Every time the ship's scientific crew threw down special nets, they hauled in pieces of plastics, underscoring the risk of dramatic upheavals in marine ecosystems even in one of the world's least-known and least-visited environments. An estimated 5 trillion ...

  • Sensors in Space Allow Daily Coastal Water Quality Monitoring

    ST. PETERSBURG, Florida, August 31, 2007 (ENS) - Using data from instruments aboard two NASA satellites, Florida researchers have created a way to map the fleeting changes in coastal water quality from space - something that has long evaded researchers and coastal managers relying only on ground-based measurements. This information has direct application for resource managers working on ...

  • Hitomi the bigeye tuna puts CSIRO research on radar

    Want to know where Mirella the gold spot trevally or Nero the spangled emperor hang out? Or how about where Hitomi the bigeye tuna, Papa the whale shark, and Galileo the tiger shark patrolled the southern oceans? As part of World Oceans Day, CSIRO is taking its ocean research to the public with Ocean Tracks, a science-meets-game engine website that displays the paths swum by tagged ...

  • Rising carbon dioxide and ‘acidified` waters in puget sound

    Scientists have discovered that the water chemistry in the Hood Canal and the Puget Sound, US, main basin is becoming more "acidified," or corrosive, as the ocean absorbs more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. These changes could have considerable impacts on the region"s shellfish industry over the next several decades. The study, co-sponsored by NOAA, the University of Washington Applied ...


  • US scientists head to Antarctica for climate research

    More than 30 scientists will embark on a research cruise this month to the Southern Ocean, which surrounds Antarctica. There they will combat cold and wind to study how gases that impact climate change move between the atmosphere and the ocean under high winds and seas. The Southern Ocean Gas Exchange Experiment, a six week cruise aboard the research vessel Ronald H. Brown, is co-sponsored by ...
