Tool that more efficiently analyzes ocean color data will become part of NASA program

(Stevens Institute of Technology) Researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology have developed a new machine learning-powered platform, known as OC-SMART, that can process ocean color in satellite images 10 times faster than the world’s leading platform. The work, which will be adopted by NASA, is one of the first machine learning-based platforms in ocean color analysis that can process both coastal and open ocean regions globally to reveal data on sea health and the impact of climate change.

Seafood: Much to glean when times are rough

Stable seafood consumption amongst the world’s poorer coastal communities depends on their local habitat characteristics, which influences how they fish at different times of the year.

Dramatic increase in microplastics in seagrass soil since the 1970s

Large-scale production of vegetables and fruit in Spain with intensive plastic consumption in its greenhouse industry is believed to have leaked microplastic contaminants since the 1970s into the surrounding Mediterranean seagrass beds. This is shown in a new study where researchers have succeeded in tracing plastic pollution since the 1930s and 1940s by analyzing seagrass sediments.
