Never Missing an Opportunity, Ship of Opportunity That Is, to Collect Carbon Dioxide Data

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words carbon dioxide? Is it the ocean? In this day and age, it should be. The ocean absorbs about one fourth of the extra carbon dioxide in the air that is released through human activity, according to a researcher at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

New study shows Arctic Ocean rapidly becoming more corrosive to marine species

Chukchi and Beaufort Seas could become less hospitable to shelled animals by 2030

New research by NOAA, University of Alaska, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the journal Oceanography shows that surface waters of the Chukchi and Beaufort seas could reach levels of acidity that threaten the ability of animals to build and maintain their shells by 2030, with the Bering Sea reaching this level of acidity by 2044.

NOAA and partner scientists study ocean acidification in Prince William Sound

New unmanned tools used to track effects of melting glaciers

Scientists from NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, the University of Alaska and the Alaska Ocean Observing System are teaming up this summer and early fall to use new unmanned tools to study how melting glaciers in Alaska’s Prince William Sound may be intensifying ocean acidification in the sound and on the Gulf of Alaska continental shelf.

NOAA, NASA measure carbon dioxide over tropical Pacific Ocean during El Niño

The strong El Niño event of 2015-2016 provided NASA and NOAA an unprecedented opportunity to test the effectiveness of the newest observation tool to measure global atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations -- NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 satellite or OCO-2.

NOAA Research Cruise Aims to Dissolve Uncertainties of Ocean Acidification

Led by NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory scientists Dr. Richard Feely and Dr. Simone Alin, NOAA’s Ocean Acidification Cruise ran from Seattle, WA down the west coast to Moss Landing, CA. The excess carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels is absorbed by our oceans, and this changing ocean chemistry could affect important ecosystems and fisheries. The research conducted on this cruise aims to bring greater understanding to these potential impacts.
