Understanding the ocean's changing chemistry

Ocean chemistry is changing faster right now than at any time over the past 50 million years. “We are fundamentally altering marine ecosystems,” says NOAA oceanographer Simone Alin, Ph.D. With her colleagues at NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL), Alin is responsible for monitoring the rapidly changing chemistry of seawater and understanding the ramifications for the world’s oceans, particularly the highly productive, fisheries-rich coastal waters off the west coast of North America.

Going to the Ends of the Earth for Science

Late March is a pivotal time around the globe. It marks the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and the coming of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. In Antarctica, it’s when the sun drops below the horizon, not to rise again until the following September. NOAA researchers at the South Pole Observing Station continue their work through the long Antarctic night.

Making climate science her policy

The ocean plays a huge role in the carbon cycle, absorbing 25 percent of yearly carbon emissions into the atmosphere.  Adrienne Sutton's research focuses on characterizing the extent of ocean acidification in the open ocean and coral reef environments, and how processes like the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) affect variations in ocean carbon chemistry over time and space.
