(IMDEA Networks Institute) Researchers at IMDEA Networks (Spain) in collaboration with University of Haifa (Israel) have developed an underwater acoustic system for the localization of marine mammals, underwater vehicles and other sound sources in the ocean, using no more than a single hydrophone (basically an underwater microphone) as a receiver.
(Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) Permafrost makes up a quarter of the landmass in the Northern Hemisphere. A large EU project, coordinated by the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, is now exploring the consequences for the global climate and for the people living in the Arctic.
(Virginia Institute of Marine Science) A new review article presents evidence that argues for a more nuanced approach to the design of global-change experiments -- one that acknowledges and purposefully incorporates the variability inherent in nature.
(Virginia Institute of Marine Science) Study shows that reefs built to reach a foot or more above the bottom develop into healthy, self-sustaining ecosystems, while those rebuilt at lower heights are quickly buried by sediment.
Researchers from The University of Western Australia (UWA), ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, and Western Australian Marine Science Institution have examined the impact of the 2016 mass bleaching event on reefs in Western Australia (WA). Show More Summary
(Virginia Institute of Marine Science) A new study by an international research team reveals bottlenecks in the growth of seagrass from seed to seedling, knowledge useful for improving seed-based restoration efforts.
The technology group Wärtsilä will supply an ultra-silent propulsion package for a new research vessel to be built for the Faroe Islands Marine Research Institute, a Faroese Government organisation. The solution is made possible through...Show More Summary
(Virginia Institute of Marine Science) A study by researchers at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science suggests fish 'condition' can help guide management efforts for Chesapeake Bay.
Juvenile Dungeness crabs are about to become lab rats for Aaron Galloway and Julie Schram of the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology in Charleston. And with a lot of work and a little luck, the two researchers might be able to help the crab fishery — if needed — in the face of warming water […]
(University of Tasmania - Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies) A new study based on the first global survey of marine life by scuba divers has provided fresh insights into how climate change is affecting the distribution of marine...Show More Summary
(University of Tasmania - Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies) A study that used DNA tests to analyse the scats of one of the world's most numerous albatrosses has revealed surprising results about the top predator's diet.DNAShow More Summary
When it comes to oysters and their role in reducing nutrient pollution, a new study by researchers at William & Mary's Virginia Institute of Marine Science gets right to the guts -- and the shell -- of the matter. The study, in the September...Show More Summary
(Virginia Institute of Marine Science) VIMS-led study is the first to identify and quantify potentially denitrifying bacteria in the oyster gut and shell, with important implications for efforts to reduce nutrient levels in coastal waters through oyster restoration.
Closing date: Monday, 30 October. The Marine Institute, as partner in the COMPASS Partnership, has been awarded funding under the Interreg VA area project to develop cross-border capacity for the monitoring and management of Marine Protected Areas (MPA) & species. The Marine Institute wishes to recruit a research scientist at Post-Doctoral level for a period of […]
(VIB (the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology)) Led by Jean-Christophe Marine (VIB-KU Leuven), a team of researchers has tracked down the cellular origin of cutaneous melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. The team was surprised to observe that these very aggressive tumors arise from mature, pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. Show More Summary
(The University of Hong Kong) Professor Kenneth Mei Yee LEUNG of the Swire Institute of Marine Science and School of Biological Sciences of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) has been awarded the 19th Biwako Prize for Ecology jointly by the Government of Shiga Prefecture and the Ecological Society of Japan.
A collaboration between KAUST and several UK institutes has revealed that surface currents are important pathways for gene flow in the Red Sea, a finding which will help guide marine management programs.
(Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) Around the globe, the pollution of rivers, lakes and seas with plastic litter is on the rise. A new project jointly coordinated by the University of Bayreuth and the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research is the first to approach the problem from a holistic perspective.
(Virginia Institute of Marine Science) 'Dress rehearsal' will help quantify local flooding risk and validate storm-surge models, while laying groundwork for a long-term network of volunteer data collectors.
(Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) This September, the extent of Arctic sea ice shrank to roughly 4.7 million square kilometres, as was determined by researchers at the Alfred Wegener Institute, the University of Bremen and Universität Hamburg.
