Newswise: UNH Sails into the Next Generation of Ocean Mapping With NOAA Grant

UNH Sails into the Next Generation of Ocean Mapping With NOAA Grant

University of New Hampshire

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have been awarded a three-year grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in partnership with Saildrone, Inc. of Alameda, CA, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) to develop data quality tools for a new unmanned wind-powered sailboat-like vehicle capable of long-duration missions to collect vital ocean mapping information.

Could dark carbon be hiding the true scale of ocean 'dead zones'?

University of Plymouth

Dead zones within the world's oceans - where there is almost no oxygen to sustain life - could be expanding far quicker than currently thought, a new study suggests.

Gulf Coast corals face catastrophe

Rice University

If coral reefs are the canary to the ocean's coal mine, it's getting awfully bleak in the Gulf of Mexico.

Stormquakes: Powerful Storms Cause Seafloor Tremors

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Stormquakes are a recently discovered phenomenon characterized by seismic activity originating at the ocean floor due to powerful storms. Heavy storms, like hurricanes or nor'easters, can create seismic waves as large as magnitude 3.5 quakes. These tremors caused by the effects of storms on the seafloor are what researchers call stormquakes. Catherine de Groot-Hedlin, who was part of the group that first observed stormquakes, will discuss their properties and meteorological significance at the 178th ASA Meeting.

Fish Scattering Sound Waves Has Impact on Aquaculture

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Fisheries acoustics have been studied for over 40 years to assess biomass and optimize aquaculture applications, and researchers in France have examined the phenomenon of how fish scatter acoustic waves in a dense school of fish contained in an open-sea cage. They developed an approach to help overcome issues encountered in aquaculture relating to the evaluation of the total biomass of dense schools of fish. They will discuss their work at the 178th ASA Meeting.

Researchers open underwater 'living museum' in the Dominican Republic

Indiana University

In partnership with the government of the Dominican Republic, researchers at the Indiana University Center for Underwater Science have opened their fifth "Living Museum in the Sea" in the Caribbean country -- a continuation of the center's holistic approach to protecting and preserving historic shipwrecks as well as their coastal environments.

Newswise: Whales may owe their efficient digestion to millions of tiny microbes

Whales may owe their efficient digestion to millions of tiny microbes

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Microbial communities inside whales may play an important role in the digestion of one of the ocean’s most abundant carbon-rich lipids, known as a wax ester.

Newswise: Solving the Mystery of Carbon on Ocean Floor

Solving the Mystery of Carbon on Ocean Floor

University of Delaware

Little bits of black carbon littering the ocean floor, separate and distinct from the organic carbon believed to come from the ocean’s surface. The source of that strange, and older, carbon has now been identified by UD researchers. The discovery is an important step in understanding the marine carbon cycle.

For some corals, meals can come with a side of microplastics

University of Washington

A new experiment by the University of Washington has found that some corals are more likely to eat microplastics when they are consuming other food, yet microplastics alone are undesirable.

Characterizing Whale Vocalization Can Help Map Migration

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Killer whale pods each have their own set of calls they use to communicate, sometimes referred to as the pod’s “dialect.” By characterizing a pod’s calls, researchers can track its seasonal movements, gaining a better understanding of the whales’ lives. Jessica Sportelli at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography studies a pod of relatively unknown killer whales in Pond Inlet, Nunavut, Canada and she will describe their repertoire of calls at the 178th ASA Meeting.
