Shark vs. Robot

2 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Hack a Day

In laymen’s terms they built a shark-chasing robot. You can guess what happened next… The back story is a little more reputable. I recently attended the Center for Marine Robotics meeting at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and learned about a very interesting robot. Show More Summary

Manufactured PANIC: projected Antarctic ice shelf melting “may surpass intensities associated with ice shelf collapse”

From the WOODS HOLE OCEANOGRAPHIC INSTITUTION and the “worse than we thought” department, comes this breathless press release that doesn’t even mention the name of the study somehow manages to spin model results into a future frenzy worse that if the ice shelves just collapsed. New study projects that melting of Antarctic ice shelves will…

Scientists develop unique tag for tracking jellyfish and squid

James Cameron's Deepsea Challenger Damaged In Transit

7 months agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

In 2012, James Cameron made history when he became the third person to visit the Mariana Trench. After the trip, he donated his submarine, Deepsea Challenger, to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The institution was in the process of loaning the vehicle out when it caught fire while in transit. http://io9.com/james-cameron-... Read more...

One more thing for Greece to worry about – undersea pools of carbon dioxide

From Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution – Carbon dioxide pools discovered in Aegean Sea The location of the second largest volcanic eruption in human history, the waters off Greece’s Santorini are the site of newly discovered opalescent pools forming at 250 meters depth. The interconnected series of meandering, iridescent white pools contain high concentrations of carbon…

Arctic Ocean acidity threatens shellfish as early as 2030

US – New research by NOAA, University of Alaska, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the journal Oceanography shows that surface waters of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas could reach levels of acidity that threaten the ability of animals to build and maintain their shells by 2030. They also predict the Bering Sea will reach […]

New study shows Arctic Ocean rapidly becoming more corrosive to marine species

New research by NOAA, University of Alaska, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the journal Oceanography shows that surface waters of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas could reach levels of acidity that threaten the ability of animals to build and maintain their shells by 2030, with the Bering Sea reaching this level of acidity by 2044. read more

Astonishing finding: coral reef thriving amid ‘ocean acidification’

Diverse coral communities persist, but bioerosion escalates in Palau’s low-pH waters From Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute : As the ocean absorbs atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) released by the burning of fossil fuels, its chemistry is changing. The CO2 reacts with water molecules, lowering the ocean’s pH in a process known as ocean acidification. This process…

The third U.S. Ocean Acidification Principal Investigators’ Meeting, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 9-11 June 2015

Ocean acidification (OA) is an important research focus both nationally and internationally.  While acidification of the oceans in response to rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations is now irrefutable, the details of the chemical, geological, and biological consequences of OA require much further study. Over the past 6 years, NSF and other US agencies have invested millions […]

Research Shows Iron's Long Ocean Journey

A new study led by scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) points to the deep ocean as a major source of dissolved iron in the central Pacific Ocean.

Study finds deep ocean is source of dissolved iron in Central Pacific

A new study led by scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) points to the deep ocean as a major source of dissolved iron in the central Pacific Ocean. This finding highlights the vital role ocean mixing plays in determining whether deep sources of iron reach the surface-dwelling life that need it to survive. read more

Submersible Vehicle Discovers Rich Algae Blooms Beneath Polar Ice in Areas Previously Thought Barren

Scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts have used the remotely-operated Nereid Under Ice Vehicle to capture video evidence of rich blooms of algae thriving beneath sheets of polar ice. With Nereid we saw not only a big bloom of plankton but also subsequent blooms of zooplankton feeding on the phytoplankton. First copepods, […]
