New application for acoustics helps estimate marine life populations

(University of California - San Diego) Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego were part of an international team that for the first time used hydroacoustics as a method for comparing the abundance of fishes within and outside marine protected areas (MPAs).

Scientists use hydroacoustics to find abundance of marine life in reserve is 4 times greater than in surrounding waters

Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego were part of an international team that for the first time used hydroacoustics as a method for comparing the abundance of fishes within and outside marine protected areas (MPAs).

BIOACID Science Portrait: Katja Mintenbeck (video, in German; English subtitles)

Dr. Katja Mintenbeck, marine biologist at Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, conducted a meta analysis as part of BIOACID. Results from more than 500 studies about effects of ocean acidification and warming were entered in a data base and analysed in relation to various research questions. Species from tropical and […]

Prof. Hans-Otto Pörtner, marine biologist at Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, is both co-coordinator of BIOACID and co-chair of Working Group II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC provides the scientific basis for the negotiations on climate change and the climate goals that are set to […]

World-first uses satellites and ocean models to explain Antarctic seafloor biodiversity

(University of Tasmania - Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies) In a world-first, a research team of Australian and international scientists has used data collected by satellites and an ocean model to explain and predict biodiversity on the Antarctic seafloor.

Underwater acoustic localization of marine mammals and vehicles

(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.

Retreating permafrost coasts threaten the fragile Arctic environment

(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.

Study urges global-change researchers to embrace variability

(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.

VIMS study identifies tipping point for oyster restoration

(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.

Research examines impact of coral bleaching on Western Australia's coastline

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

Study identifies bottlenecks in early seagrass growth

(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.
