How the Ocean Works
Five extreme places to do ocean research
Whether they’re under the ice at the furthest poles or hovering above the ocean’s deepest volcanoes, these researchers get the job done.
Ancient atmospheric oxygen sleuthing with ocean chromium
Currently, geoscientists and paleoceanographers from MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) are looking to add another use to that list: as a way to examine chemical shifts in ancient Earth’s oceans and atmosphere that are preserved in the seafloor’s paleorecord.
Deep-sea exploration breakthrough to guide future space exploration missions
The ASU researchers exploring deep sea hydrothermal vents as part of the SUBSEA project moved their modeling to the beginning of this process, significantly speeding up their ability to interpret the data from months to a couple of hours.
The Gulf Stream Is Weakening and It Promises Stronger Storms For NY And NJ
The oceanic network matters because it has an outsized influence on making the world habitable, said Peter de Menocal, the president and director at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
