New Center Targets Ocean Contaminants and Human Health
Scripps scientists lead two separate projects to track potentially toxic chemicals in marine life and their impacts on human health
Capitalizing on UC San Diego's unique ability to address environmental threats to public health, a new center based at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego will target emerging contaminants found naturally in common seafood dishes as well as man-made chemicals that accumulate in human breast milk.
Postdoc Positions in Biological Oceanography/Marine Biogeochemistry, Sidney (UTS)
The University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) is seeking to employ two post-doctoral research fellows to undertake research in benthic community metabolism (eddy correlation) and biological oceanography / marine biogeochemistry. The former is a 3 year position, and the latter a 2 year position, both based in Sydney, Australia.
Final meeting of ice2sea highlights sophisticated new modelling techniques to measure ice-melt contribution to future sea-level rise
Tomorrow scientists from the major European Union programme ice2sea meet in London at the Royal Institution of Great Britain to discuss four years of research into how to better understand and model ice-melt and its contribution to sea-level rise.
The Black Sea is a Goldmine of Ancient Genetic Data
New Study Reconstructs the Past Ocean ‘Paleome.’
When Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) marine paleoecologist Marco Coolen was mining through vast amounts of genetic data from the Black Sea sediment record, he was amazed about the variety of past plankton species that left behind their genetic makeup (i.e., the plankton paleome).
Arctic Ocean 'acidifying rapidly'
The Arctic seas are being made rapidly more acidic by carbon-dioxide emissions, according to a new report.
Scientists from the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) monitored widespread changes in ocean chemistry in the region.
