COS researcher Kevin Arrigo leads a research cruise in the Arctic and discovers a massive phytoplankton bloom where one has never before been seen: under the sea ice. This newly discovered bloom could affect the life of every marine organism in the Arctic, and could play an important role in the future of our Arctic ocean fisheries.
This scientific report, authored by Stanford Woods Institute researchers and COS Management Committee members Joff Koseff, Rob Dunbar and Steve Monismith among others, explores the results of the first controlled ocean acidification experiment in shallow coastal waters. The team developed a 'mini-lab' which they then placed in the waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef in an effort to determine how ecosystems may change due to ocean acidification.
A new lab-in-a-box, developed by Woods researchers and COS Management Committee members and others, provides a window into the future of coral reef health. This story discusses its deployment in the shallow coastal water of Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
COS Management Committee members and Woods researchers, in collaboration with others, have created a mini-lab that they deployed in the waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, conducting the first controlled experiment in shallow waters on ocean acidification.
In a bid to save the world's coral reefs, Woods researchers and COS Management Committee members collaborated with a team of scientists to develop a "lab-in-a-box" which they recently deployed in the waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
A majority of California's coastal planners and resource managers now view the threats from climate change as sufficiently likely that practical steps on the ground need to be taken to protect against growing threats, according to results from a new survey.
