Pushing the boundaries of research at NOAA in the ocean

Pushing the boundaries of research at NOAA in the ocean

Taking risks is a necessary part of advancing science. NOAA recognizes the need to invest in these emerging research areas and recently supported several inventive and high-risk projects. Two projects supported by OAR seek to improve NOAA’s fisheries management through global climate prediction systems and enhance how scientists measure ocean chemistry at great depths.

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

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.

Small Mussels with Big Effects: Invasive Quagga Mussels Eat Away at Great Lakes Food Web

Small Mussels with Big Effects: Invasive Quagga Mussels Eat Away at Great Lakes Food Web

Since hitching unsolicited rides in boat ballast water in the late 1980s, invasive quagga mussels (Dreissena rostriformis bugensis), which are native to Ukraine, have caused massive changes to the ecology of the Great Lakes.  These invasive mussels have also taken a toll on the Great Lakes recreational and commercial fisheries, which are valued at $4-7 million annually.

Hurricane Researchers Achieve Important Milestones Despite Quiet 2013 Season

Hurricane Researchers Achieve Important Milestones Despite Quiet 2013 Season

While the relatively quiet 2013 Atlantic hurricane season produced the fewest hurricanes on record since 1982, ranking it the sixth least-active season since 1950, this didn’t stop the Hurricane Research Division (HRD) of the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) from having a successfully active season of data collection.

NOAA Research Cruise Aims to Dissolve Uncertainties of Ocean Acidification

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.
