Carbon dioxide levels reach milestone on world’s most pristine continent

Levels of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere – which is the leading driver of recent climate change – have reached a milestone at British Antarctic Survey’s (BAS) Halley Research Station in Antarctica. Scientists from BAS and University of East Anglia (UEA) working at the station’s Clean Air Sector Laboratory (CASLab), recorded 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time this month (June).

Volcanic Puzzle in the South Atlantic- Marine scientists from Kiel and Bremerhaven reconstruct the history of a dismembered seamount

22 March 2016/Kiel. Extinct volcanic islands erode to sea level and then disappear below the surface. In the course of millions of years, movements of tectonic plates and geological faults can transport these seamounts far from where they originally formed. Research led by volcanologists at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel has shown that three seamounts in the South Atlantic Ocean located more than 3,500 kilometers apart once formed a single ocean island volcano. The findings also provide insight into the complex plate tectonics of the region.

Bigelow Laboratory launches new Centers for Venture Research focused on seafood security and the opening Arctic Ocean

Recognizing the importance of making science more relevant and accessible to meet societal needs, Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences has launched two new Centers for Venture Research, specifically geared to translating basic ocean-related scientific research to inform problem-solving, policy, and public awareness. The first two centers will focus on the opening of the Arctic Ocean and seafood security.
