New Rotating Microscope to Study Microscopic Ocean Life

Stanford ocean microscope

Microscopic plankton’s daily journey between the ocean’s depths and surface holds the key to understanding crucial planetary processes, but has remained largely a mystery. Until now. A new Stanford-developed rotating microscope, outlined in a study published in Nature Methods, offers for the first time a way to track and measure these enigmatic microorganisms’ behaviors and molecular processes as they undertake their daily vertical

Research on Floating Offshore Wind Costs

Scott Hamilton Xodus

Global energy consultancy Xodus Group has launched a three-year collaborative research project on thecosts around floating offshore wind. The study, led by Xodus through the IDCORE programme, is a collaborative partnership between the Universities of Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Exeter, as well as the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). To enable the best industry outcomes, Xodus is issuing an open

Studying Link Between Climate and Armed Conflict

Climate change—from rising temperatures and more severe heavy rain to drought—is increasing risks for economies, human security and conflict globally. Scientists at the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science are leading an effort to better assess the climate-conflict link to help societies manage the complex risks of increased violence from a changing climate. The links

Fast-Moving Undersea Waterfalls Control Submarine Channels

NOC waterfalls submarine channels

New research led by the U.K. National Oceanography Centre (NOC) has discovered how fast-moving waterfalls under the sea control the shape and behavior of submarine channels. These underwater channels are the offshore equivalents of rivers, but can be much larger. Submarine channels can extend for tens to thousands of kilometers offshore, providing an important conduit for the transfer of sediment,
