Although tagging and tracking of marine animals has gained significant popularity, its use with animals in early life is still relatively rare, according to a study just pubished by a group of scientists from COS and other organizations.
Susanne Moser discusses a recent survey conducted by
researchers at the Center for Ocean Solutions and California Sea Grant. This survey found that coastal planners and resource
managers in California
believe that threats such as rising sea level and coastal erosion are serious
and need to be addressed.
In an article highlighting the effects of ocean
acidification on oyster farms, coral reefs and other important habitats
worldwide, the Center for Ocean Solutions adds insight to how warming ocean
waters are affecting plankton blooms off the southern California coast.
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.
