Sensor Array Stretching Across the North Atlantic Reveals Drivers of Global Currents

Most of us are aware that the oceans of the world play a tremendously important role in both the regulation of the global climate and the uptake of atmospheric carbon. However, one might be forgiven for being less aware of the amazing complexity of the meridional overturning circulation (MOC) of the world's oceans. Scientists around the world are still learning about these drivers of our global climate system. The AMOC, that portion of the MOC in the Atlantic, is critical to average climate worldwide. Characterized by fluctuations from north to south and back again, warmer waters move northward on the globe, allowing deeper, colder waters to circulate toward more central areas.

BRUVS Capturing Deep-Reef Fish Communities

Until recently, it's been difficult for scientists to monitor, inventory, and study deep water fishes. Yet these species are critical to understanding threats posed by climate change, fishing pressure, and pollution, among other factors impacting marine life. Now, teams are using newer technologies to access and document fish abundance and diversity among deeper reef settings. Tiffany Sih , a PhD candidate from James Cook University, has used Baited Remote Underwater Video Stations (BRUVS) with lights to sample deeper habitats (54–260 m), in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), Australia. Sih corresponded with EM about her recent work , the first study of its kind looking deeper than 100m, and what inspired her to take the deeper dive.

As Arctic Permafrost Thaws, Northernmost Lakes Brown

More than 250 million years ago, massive volcanic activity in the region of what is now Siberia caused “The Great Dying,†a colorful name for the Permian mass extinction that wiped out most of the life on Earth at the time. Once the volcanic activity finally calmed down after a respectable one million years, about 96 percent of life in the ocean and 80 percent of life on land was gone. About 500 gigatons of carbon were left behind in that region, and as the Earth cooled, that carbon was sealed in the Permafrost that covers much of Siberia today. Permafrost is simply ground that stays frozen at or below 0° Celsius (32° Fahrenheit) all of the time. It does not necessarily contain ice; as long as it remains frozen solid, even completely dry ground is permafrost.
