The 2024 edition of the Guinness World Records book recognizes NOAA and industry partners with two world records: 1) wind speed recorded by an uncrewed surface vehicle; and 2) endurance inside a tropical cyclone.
A fleet of strategically placed instruments collected data from the air, sea surface, and underwater to enhance hurricane forecasts and increase scientific knowledge.
From September 1 to 28, 2023, Ocean Exploration Trust and partners are conducting an expedition of the largely unexplored northwestern corner of Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, an area north of the main Hawaiian Islands.
Five autonomous profiling floats were deployed from a commercial vessel into the depths of the Caribbean Sea to improve ocean and hurricane research.
A landmark study published last week demonstrates that the ocean’s role as a carbon sink and its ability to store anthropogenic, or human-caused, carbon may be weakening. A collaboration among international researchers led by Jens Daniel Müller, Ph.D. (ETH Zurich), this study captures a snapshot of three decades of global interior ocean measurements to determine the change in ocean storage of carbon emitted due to human activity and what it suggests about the future under a changing climate.
