  • 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 ...

  • Iceland Ocean Cluster Maps Country's Network of Ocean-Related Businesses

    Iceland's heavy reliance on the ocean and its resources makes it critical to identify and quantify the value of these resources for all future planning and policy making. The Iceland Ocean Cluster, a group consisting of leaders of ocean-related businesses in Iceland, today announced that it has begun to map a network of Icelandic firms to foster cooperation among seafood and other ...


  • Indian Ocean pirates impede climate observations

    Australian scientists have sought the help of the United States and Australian navies to plug a critical gap in their Argo ocean and climate monitoring program caused by Somali pirates operating in the western Indian Ocean. "We have not been able to seed about one quarter of the Indian Ocean since the increase in the piracy and that has implications for understanding a region of ...

  • Going high-tech to probe deeper into oceans

    The new technology is part of a vastly improved set of tools provided by the Australian Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) to study the open ocean. "What is happening in the open ocean is vitally important to all Australians and their understanding of local and regional climate," says IMOS Director, Tim Moltmann. "It drives our climate and weather extremes, is the workplace for offshore ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ocean salinities show an intensified water cycle

    The stronger water cycle means arid regions have become drier and high rainfall regions wetter as atmospheric temperature increases. The study, co-authored by CSIRO scientists Paul Durack and Dr Susan Wijffels, shows the surface ocean beneath rainfall-dominated regions has freshened, whereas ocean regions dominated by evaporation are saltier. The paper also confirms that surface warming of the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Teledyne Webb Research Awarded Open Ocean Glider Contract for Ocean Observatories Initiative

    Teledyne Webb Research announced today that it has been selected to provide Open Ocean gliders for the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). This award follows closely on the recent award to Teledyne Webb Research of the Coastal Glider program for the OOI. The Open Ocean Slocum G2 gliders will support the high latitude Global Arrays of the OOI. Similar to the Coastal Glider program, this ...


  • Barbados - environmental industries sector profile

    Barbados aims to become a developed nation by 2025, and the Government of Barbados is currently focusing on a number of sectors in which national performance should be enhanced in order to assist in achieving this status. The environment is one such sector. Contrary to the situation in Canada and other developed nations that have private sector driven economies, the economy of Barbados is led by ...

  • East Coast gliders yield valuable marine life data

    Eddies can be up to 200 kilometres across and they distribute heat and nutrients around the ocean and form their own distinct habitat. An insight into ocean eddies is also an insight into how ocean dynamics influences regional climate. CSIRO scientists and technicians last month retrieved one of three gliders working in south-east Australia after a five-month program criss-crossing the East ...
