NOAA and partner scientists study ocean acidification in Prince William Sound

NOAA and partner scientists study ocean acidification in Prince William Sound

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.

$2 million Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE Launched

$2 million Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE Launched

XPRIZE (www.xprize.org), the global leader in incentivized prize competitions, announced the launch of its next major competition: the $2 million Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE. The Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE aims to spur global innovators to develop accurate and affordable ocean pH sensors that will ultimately transform our understanding of ocean acidification.

A more acidic Arctic? NOAA deploys first buoy in region to monitor levels of CO2 absorbed by ocean

A more acidic Arctic? NOAA deploys first buoy in region to monitor levels of CO2 absorbed by ocean

NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory in partnership with the Marine Research Institute in Iceland deployed the first high-latitude ocean acidification monitoring buoy in the Atlantic Ocean in early August.  The moored buoy is the first of its kind to be deployed north of the Arctic circle in a region where very little is known about how carbon dioxide (CO2) is entering the ocean environment.

Arctic nearly free of summer sea ice during first half of 21st century

Arctic nearly free of summer sea ice during first half of 21st century

For scientists studying summer sea ice in the Arctic, it’s not a question of “if” there will be nearly ice-free summers, but “when.” A new study says it could be before 2050.

NOAA, National Archives team up with citizen-scientists to reconstruct historical climate of the Arctic

NOAA, National Archives team up with citizen-scientists to reconstruct historical climate of the Arctic

Before satellites, weather data transmitters, or computers, there were the ship's logs of Arctic sea voyages. A new crowdsourcing effort could make the weather data from these ship logs available to climate scientists worldwide.

Arctic summer wind shift could affect sea ice loss and U.S./European weather

Arctic summer wind shift could affect sea ice loss and U.S./European weather

Changes in summer Arctic wind patterns contribute not only to an unprecedented loss of Arctic sea ice, but could also bring about shifts in North American and European weather.
