Down to Earth With: Deep-sea biologist Stace Beaulieu

People often find their way to the geosciences after a college class sparks their interest. But not Stace Beaulieu, a senior research specialist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Woods Hole, Mass. — she knew what she wanted to do at age 6. Show More Summary

Study identifies whale blow microbiome

A new study by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and colleagues identified for the first time an extensive conserved group of bacteria within healthy humpback whales' blow—the moist breath that whales spray out of their blowholes when they exhale. The research is published this week in mSystems, an open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology.

Fueling the future

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) In the future, our homes and vehicles could be powered by fuel made from seaweed grown at large-scale offshore farms. Researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) are working to help make that scenario a reality sooner with funding from the US Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E).

James R. Ledwell selected as a Fellow of the Oceanography Society

(The Oceanography Society) The Oceanography Society congratulates James R. Ledwell (Emeritus Research Scholar, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) on being selected as a Fellow of The Oceanography Society. The citation on Dr. Ledwell's certificate recognizes him for seminal contributions to the understanding of oceanic mixing. Show More Summary

Scientists find new source of radioactivity from Fukushima disaster

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) Scientists have found a previously unsuspected place where radioactive material from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant disaster has accumulated -- in sands and brackish groundwater beneath beaches up to 60 miles away. Show More Summary

NJIT Oil spill expert assesses use of deep-sea dispersants in Deepwater Horizon cleanup

(New Jersey Institute of Technology) In a groundbreaking study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, collaborators from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Texas...Show More Summary

Dispersants improved air quality for responders at Deepwater Horizon

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) A study published Aug. 28, 2017, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences adds a new dimension to the controversial decision to inject large amounts of chemical dispersants immediately above the crippled oil well at the seafloor during the Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010.

New technique offers clues to measure the deoxygenation of the ocean

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) The living, breathing ocean may be slowly starting to suffocate. More than two percent of the ocean's oxygen content has been depleted during the last half century, according to reports, and marine 'dead zones' continue to expand throughout the global ocean.

Re-envisioning underwater imaging

The Advanced Imaging and Visualization Laboratory (AIVL) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) working with Marine Imaging Technologies has developed a revolutionary new multi-function, underwater imaging system capableShow More Summary

Finding new homes won't help emperor penguins cope with climate change

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) Unlike other species that migrate successfully to escape the wrath of climate change, a new study shows that dispersal may help sustain global Emperor penguin populations for a limited time, but, as sea ice conditions continue to deteriorate, the 54 colonies that exist today will face devastating declines by the end of this century.

More frequent extreme ocean warming could further endanger albatross

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) As scientists grapple with the behavioral, ecological and evolutionary impacts of extreme climatic events, the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B created a special June issue...Show More Summary

Travel distances of juvenile fish key to better conservation

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) Marine reserves -- sections of the ocean where fishing is prohibited -- promote coral reef sustainability by preventing overfishing and increasing fish abundance and diversity. But to be effective, they need to be sized right, and in a way that accounts for how far juvenile fish travel away from their parents after spawning.

Tracing the puzzling origins of clinging jellyfish

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) The first genetic study of the diversity of clinging jellyfish populations around the globe has discovered some surprising links among distant communities of jellies and also revealed there may be more than one species of the infamous stinger. The paper published April 18 in the journal Peer J.

Volcanic arcs form by deep melting of rock mixtures

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) A new study published in the journal Science Advances changes our understanding of how volcanic arc lavas are formed, and may have implications for the study of earthquakes and the risks of volcanic eruption.

Corals die as global warming collides with local weather in the South China Sea

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) In the South China Sea, a 2°C rise in the sea surface temperature in June 2015 was amplified to produce a 6°C rise on Dongsha Atoll, a shallow coral reef ecosystem, killing approximately 40 percent of the resident coral community within weeks, according to a study published in Scientific Reports this week.

Why a Naval War Between China and America Would Be an Epic Showdown

Harry J. Kazianis Security, Asia What would happen?  Back in the Winter 2010 edition of  Orbis,  the always smart James Kraska, at the time an investigator at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, presented his readers with a terrifying prospect: the possibility that China would be able sink a U.S. Show More Summary

Underwater mountains help ocean water rise from abyss

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) scientists from MIT, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the University of Southampton in the UK have identified a mechanism by which waters may rise from the ocean's depths to its uppermost layers. Their results are published today in the journal Nature Communications.

Taking earth's inner temperature

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) A new study led by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) suggests the mantle--the mostly solid, rocky part of Earth's interior that lies between its super-heated core and its outer crustal layer -- may be hotter than previously believed.
