Secchi Dip-in encourages citizen monitoring this summer

A monitoring initiative named for Secchi disks encourages people across the world to test the water nearby from the end of June through mid-July. It’s called the Secchi Dip-in and its organizers want anyone with the means to test their local water to do so and report back.  The database is open to contributions from June 29 through July 21. Volunteers, monitoring groups and professionals alike can contribute data to the Secchi Dip-in database.  Turbidity data is the main information Secchi Dip-in organizers want to see, but they won’t turn down any kind of water quality data people contribute. They encourage interested environmentalists to go out with someone who is experienced in testing for water quality to ensure data is accurate.

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.
