Frontiers Horizon Scan 2017: Emerging Issues in Marine Science – call for submissions

Frontiers in Marine Science is launching the first edition of their annual Research Topic Horizon Scan 2017: Emerging Issues in Marine Science. It is the only topic that publishes invited review and synthesis articles, and awards the authors with a free publication to showcase the latest and most important research in the marine sciences at the beginning of every year.

A Recent Pause in Antarctic Peninsula Warming

The rapid warming of the Antarctic Peninsula, which occurred from the early-1950s to the late 1990s, has paused. Stabilisation of the ozone hole along with natural climate variability were significant in bringing about the change. Together these influences have now caused the peninsula to enter a temporary cooling phase. Temperatures remain higher than measured during the middle of the 20th Century and glacial retreat is still taking place.

Call for comment of the oceanographic community: Implementation plan for NASA-funded “EXport Processes in the Ocean from RemoTe Sensing”

The goal of the “EXport Processes in the Ocean from RemoTe Sensing” (EXPORTS) field campaign is to develop a predictive understanding of the export and fate of net primary production and its implications for the ocean’s carbon cycle. EXPORTS builds upon decades of NASA-supported research assessing global NPP. The EXPORTS Science Plan has already been thoroughly vetted by the community.
