Artificial Horizon

Answers the need of every sextant user who cannot depend on a natural sea horizon. Use for backyard practice, finding exact positon when inland, and making exact sextant shot on foggy mornings.

To use, fill with water and read the angle of the reflected sun with your sextant. Half your sextant reading is the sun's angle above the true horizon. Windproof and corrosion resistant, the reflecting surface is completely enclosed.
Comes with two sun shades, a lid and full directions.
Compact 6" x 4" x 1-1/2" (15 x 10 x 4 cm).

Acidification May Ease Struggle to Survive for Herring Larvae

Survival in the ocean is no easy task, especially for ichthyoplankton, the eggs and larvae of fish. For most, including herring larvae, once they're released into the water, they're on their own, with survival as their sole goal. Climate change is making that goal more difficult to obtain for many species, but the changes to the marine atmosphere that come along with a warming climate are complex, and they affect various species in different ways. Scientists are still trying to research what some of those differences might look like. Struggle for survival Ichthyoplankton are vulnerable to predators, of course, but they are also highly sensitive to their environment. This means changes in dissolved oxygen levels, temperature, and pH can all be dangerous to fish eggs and larvae.

New Technique for Removing Toxic Heavy Metals from Water

Toxic heavy metals in water are a serious problem all over the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) lists 10 chemicals of major Public Health concern , and four of them are metal or metalloid: mercury , lead, cadmium, and arsenic . WHO also indicates that 2.1 billion people cannot access clean drinking water in their homes, while nearly 1 billion people lack access to clean drinking water at all—and of course those figures will grow more dire as climate change alters the environment and reduces. However, heavy metals find their way into water in multiple ways. Industrial concerns cause metals to leach into the water supply, either accidentally or by actively dumping waste .

Rising Atmospheric CO2 Levels Affecting Cephalopod Behaviors

Carbon dioxide, CO2, is a waste product for animals, including humans. That means that too much of it can be dangerous. In humans, excessive exposure to CO2 can kill, but in lesser amounts it can also affect the blood's pH level, causing acidemia. Acidemia can cause nerve damage , including hallucinations, delirium, and seizures. Far less is known about the subtler effects of CO2 on cephalopods, but this is in large part because far less is known about cephalopods, generally. However, new research from scientists at James Cook University (JCU) in Australia reveals that rising levels of atmospheric CO2 may cause strange behavioral effects in cephalopods—effects that are likely to be dangerous to them.
