  • The bad oxygen conditions in the Baltic Sea continue

    The serious oxygen conditions that have affected the Baltic Sea during the 2000s continue. The oxygen survey performed during autumn 2013 show that 15% of the bottom areas are dead due to total absence of oxygen and about 30% suffer from acute oxygen deficiency. Sad development SMHI have analyzed the oxygen situation in the Baltic Sea during the period 1960 to ...

    The OTT Hydromet Group has announced a new distribution strategy for the Sea-Bird Coastal product range of water quality sensors and monitors. “These instruments fit very well with our range of water monitoring technologies,” says OTT’s European Sales Manager Marcus Meckelmann. “We also share similar customer bases, so the key Sea-Bird Coastal products will be available ...

  • Study: Rising Seas Slowed by Increasing Water on Land

    New measurements from a NASA satellite have allowed researchers to identify and quantify, for the first time, how climate-driven increases of liquid water storage on land have affected the rate of sea level rise. A new study by scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and the University of California, Irvine, shows that while ice sheets and glaciers ...

  • Successful airborne pollution compliance monitoring of ships at sea

    Despite new legislation that requires ships to burn low sulphur marine oil in EU and US coastal waters, the economic benefits of continuing to use inexpensive, high-sulphur fuels, combined with the relatively small risk of getting caught, means that many ships are flouting the rules. However, this could be about to change as a real-time, airborne pollution detection system based around a pair of ...

  • Data adds to confusion over polar sea ice

    Scientists believe they may have found explanations for two inconsistencies in their understanding of global warming. One cause for head scratching is in the Antarctic, where the sea ice seems to be getting bigger when it ought to be shrinking, and another has been the apparent slowdown overall in the rate of global warming for the last decade. ...

  • NASA Voyage Set To Explore Link Between Sea Saltiness And Climate

     A NASA-sponsored expedition is set to sail to the North Atlantic's saltiest spot to get a detailed, 3-D picture of how salt content fluctuates in the ocean's upper layers and how these variations are related to shifts in rainfall patterns around the planet. The research voyage is part of a multi-year mission, ...

  • E.ON reaches milestone in the largest Baltic Sea wind farm

    E.ON Climate & Renewables has reached a further milestone in the expansion of offshore wind power in the Baltic Sea. Rödsand lies between the German island of Fehmarn and the Danish island of Lolland.

    Jason-3, a U.S.-European oceanography satellite mission with NASA participation that will continue a nearly quarter-century record of tracking global sea level rise, lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California Sunday at 10:42 a.m. PST (1:42 p.m. EST) aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. Jason-3 is an international mission led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) ...

  • Expedition to test new technologies for deep sea deposit exploration

    A research cruise this summer, led by the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), will address the massive technical challenges in exploring for sea-floor mineral deposits. This expedition will take place on board the RRS James Cook, marking a decade of service that has seen this ship travel 218,972 miles in pursuit of science – the equivalent of circumnavigating the globe ten times. Seafloor ...
