A new study uses the response of optical and acoustic measurements to derive a sediment composition index for prediction of the relative fractions of mixed sediments in suspension.
Researchers turn to the shipping industry for data on ocean surface currents.
Investigadores utilizaron un tanque de olas para estudiar el movimiento de partículas de plástico de forma experimental y comprender el papel de la densidad de partículas en el comportamiento de deriva.
The ocean is mainly driven by wind stress, but simultaneous observations show that the gain of momentum flux by the ocean can be larger than the wind stress due to the influence of ocean waves.
Researchers used a wave tank to study the movement of plastic particles experimentally and to understand the role of particle density in drift behavior.
Forests of fast-growing kelp influence the chemistry of the water in which they live. A new study evaluates their potential to ameliorate ocean acidification in sensitive coastal ecosystems.
Forecasts of carbonate chemistry in coastal ecosystems determined from seasonal robotic measurements can improve fisheries management and help mitigate short-term ocean acidification events.
New research reveals that tiny single-celled organisms in the Arctic Ocean are growing more numerous as climate change thins the ice.
Many oceanic properties are not directly observed but are instead estimated using proxy measurements. A new method uses physics-based correlations to reduce uncertainty in this relationship.
Tropical cyclones can inject potential vorticity directly into ocean eddies—an alternative way for tropical cyclones to leave fingerprints on the ocean besides the traditional near-inertial wave.
