(Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) The Arctic has a serious litter problem: in just 10 years, the concentration of marine litter at a deep-sea station in the Arctic Ocean has risen 20-fold. This was recently reported in a study by researchers at the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research.
"According to industry data, of the nine largest American opera companies by budget, none has a female music director and principal conductor. And Marin Alsop in Baltimore, who served on the faculty at the Dallas workshop, remains the sole woman music director at the nation's 24 largest orchestras. In Dallas, [general director Keith] Cerny hired […]
Nicola Wannicke, marine biologist at Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research in Warnemünde (IOW) investigates winners of ocean acidification: Cyanobacteria benefit from eutrophication as well as rises in temperature and carbon dioxide concentrations. Show More Summary
(Virginia Institute of Marine Science) An international team discovers that production of a potent greenhouse gas can be bypassed as soil nitrogen breaks down into unreactive atmospheric N2.
(Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) The rapid climate changes in the Arctic are no longer just the domain of scientists. The shrinking sea ice and collapsing permafrost coasts are now also becoming topics on the agenda of international politics and industry.
(Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) The thawing and erosion of Arctic permafrost coasts has dramatically increased in the past years and the sea is now consuming more than 20 meters of land per year at some locations.
(Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) Manganese nodules on the seabed of the Pacific Ocean are an important breeding ground for deep-sea octopuses. As reported by a German-American team of biologists in the current issue of the journal Current Biology, the octopuses deposit their eggs onto sponges that only grow locally on manganese nodules.
The vastness of the sea and its sometimes harsh conditions often pose a challenge to marine researchers. In the North Sea near Heligoland, scientists from the Thünen Institute for Sea Fishing, the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) and the Helmholtz…

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) For decades, marine chemists have faced an elusive paradox. The surface waters of the world's oceans are supersaturated with the greenhouse gas methane, yet most species of microbes that can generate the gas can't survive in oxygen-rich surface waters.
