  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • NASA To Launch Ocean Wind Monitor To Space Station

    In a clever reuse of hardware originally built to test parts of NASA's QuikScat satellite, the agency will launch the ISS-RapidScat instrument to the International Space Station in 2014 to measure ocean-surface wind speed and direction. The ISS-RapidScat instrument will help improve weather forecasts, including hurricane monitoring, and understanding of how ocean-atmosphere interactions influence ...

  • Chelsea Technologies Group is working to stop ocean stowaways

    Ballast water is critical to the safe operation of ocean-going vessels. However, during ballast water exchange, thousands of aquatic organisms and pathogens can stowaway and be transported from one part of the world to another. The transfer of these organisms in ships' ballast water can have devastating effects on the marine environment and ultimately the health and well-being of the people who ...
