POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean

POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean

Since 1999, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean, POGO, has served as a forum for leaders of major oceanographic institutions around the world to promote global oceanography, particularly the implementation of international and integrated global ocean observing systems. POGO is an international network of collaborators who foster partnerships that advance efficiency and effectiveness in studying and monitoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Through its efforts, POGO has promoted observations underpinning ocean and climate science, interpreted scientific results for decision makers, provided training and technology transfer to emerging economies, and built awareness of the many challenges still ahead.

Sea urchin nickel 'trick' could be key to capturing carbon

Researchers say that the natural ability of sea urchins to absorb CO2 could be a model for an effective carbon capture and storage system.

 

Newcastle University scientists discovered by chance that urchins use the metal nickel to turn carbon dioxide into shell.

SAMS becomes a UNU associated institution

World first for Scottish marine research

 

Today SAMS and the United Nations University (UNU) signed a memorandum of understanding making SAMS the first marine research institute to become an associated institution of the UNU.

Window on future ocean change

First long-term experiment with GEOMAR mesocosms off Sweden investigates effects of ocean acidification on plankton communities

 

From January to June 2013, more than 60 European scientists will conduct a worldwide unique long-term experiment on ocean acidification at the west coast of Sweden. To study how natural marine communities develop in response to acidifying waters, the scientists will deploy a large-scale mesocosm facility in the Gullmar Fjord. The field experiment, which takes place in the framework of the German project on ocean acidification BIOACID (Biological Impacts of Ocean ACIDification), is coordinated by GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel.
