Forecasts of carbonate chemistry in coastal ecosystems determined from seasonal robotic measurements can improve fisheries management and help mitigate short-term ocean acidification events.
Ocean acidification “provides a case study of a way that we can drive forward bipartisan action on an environmental issue,” says an Ocean Conservancy scientist.
A thermodynamic function of the potential spicity is defined and it is orthogonal to the potential density in the least square sense.
A method for estimating potential spicity, a thermodynamic variable in oceanography, provides a new way to describe contrasts in watermass properties.
With coastal oceans around the world changing from the effects of urbanization, rising carbon dioxide levels, and climate warming, recent work begins to find new land-sea linkages.
A new derived algorithm for particle backscattering and multi-year VIIRS climatology improves ocean color parameterization in highly turbid coastal and inland waters.
Researchers probe millennia-old deep-ocean sponges for links between ocean nutrients and climate.
For the first time, scientists provide a sea-wide view of what happens to Mediterranean waters that flow into the Black Sea through the Bosporus Strait.
