Scientists from ice2sea contribute to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report
Set up in response to concerns that projections on future sea-level rise were not precise enough, the ice2sea programme has increased certainty in this vital area of research and given the IPCC more reliable data for its latest report. The Summary for Policymakers for Working Group 1 (the physical science base) has been published today, following a week of negotiations by authors, in Stockholm.
The Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE
The Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE is a $2 million global competition that challenges teams of engineers, scientists and innovators from all over the world to create pH sensor technology that will affordably, accurately and efficiently measure ocean chemistry from its shallowest waters… to its deepest depths.

NSF Program Announcement: EAST ASIA AND PACIFIC SUMMER INSTITUTES for U.S. Graduate Students
NSF Program Announcement: EAST ASIA AND PACIFIC SUMMER INSTITUTES for U.S. Graduate Students Pursuing Science and Engineering (EAPSI)
An EAPSI award provides U.S. graduate students in science, engineering, and education:
1) first-hand research experiences in Australia, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, or Taiwan;
2) an introduction to the science, science policy, and scientific infrastructure of the respective location; and
3) an orientation to the society, culture, and language. It is expected that EAPSI awards will help students initiate professional relationships to enable future collaboration with foreign counterparts.
Assistant Professor: Marine Microbial Ecology, Texas A&M University
The Department of Life Sciences of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Marine Microbial Ecology. Possible research areas include, but are not limited to: role of microbes in aquatic food webs and biogeochemical cycling, microbial pathogens, microbial diversity or microbial physiological ecology. This position will further expand and complement our M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Marine Biology (http://www.marinebiology.tamucc.edu), and also contribute to our Coastal and Marine System Science Ph.D. program (http://cmss.tamucc.edu/).
