“Jack” and “Minnie” will be in Bermudian waters by the end of summer
Our oceans need an immediate and substantial reduction of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. If that doesn't happen, we could see far-reaching and largely irreversible impacts on marine ecosystems, which would especially be felt in developing countries.
In the last decade, pteropod shells have revealed signs of a struggle: scientists have discovered pitted, rough shells in some pteropod populations.
ASLO honors Craig Carlson with the 2015 G. Evelyn Hutchinson Award
New maps, based in part on long-term data from BIOS, show how changing seasons and geography impact acidification patterns and highlight where marine organisms may face the biggest challenges as carbon dioxide emissions continue to impact ocean chemistry.
Dr Mark Guishard, Program Manager of RPI2.0, is to join the panellists at a roundtable discussion about lessons learnt from last month’s storms.
An oceanographer is deploying an undersea glider to take measurements during the Category 3 storm, which is expected to hit Bermuda. Hopefully, the rare underwater perspective will yield insights that can be used to develop forecasting models.
An underwater glider will examine the impact of hurricanes on our ocean.
While most items are being tied down in Bermuda this week as Hurricane Gonzalo takes aim at the island, a yellow undersea glider named “Anna” will swim straight into the storm.
BIOS collaborates with UCSB on a research project into the potential for an offshore wind farm.
A recently released report on the health of coral reefs in the Caribbean over the past 40 years by the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN) looks at long-term changes in coral and fish populations across the region, and at the various environmental stressors that have impacted them.
Dalhousie University and BIOS, both global leaders in marine science education and research, are launching a joint initiative that provides a new experiential learning program for students in oceanography.
BIOS adds to research fleet capabilities with new glider
BIOS scientist Rachel Parsons (Oceanic Microbial Observatory Lab Manager) is lead author on a study that looked at the microbial communities within Devil's Hole, Bermuda. Read more to learn how Devil's Hole acts as a natural laboratory for research related to climate change.
In a unique collaboration researchers from around the globe have studied data from seven time-series and found that despite the varying geographic locations, each of the time-series sites exhibited similar changes in ocean chemistry due to anthropogenic CO2, confirming what many scientists have believed for years: ocean acidification is indeed changing ocean chemistry.
Research shows that reefs are able to counteract the trend toward acidity through their own biochemistry, but at a cost.
NSF just announced continued support for the Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study (BATS) research program at BIOS.
