Global warming is detectable even at the ocean floor – Sustainability Times

Everywhere they looked the scientists observed a warming trend of 0.02 to 0.04 Celsius over a decade between 2009 and 2019. The planet has been warming and it has been the surface of our oceans that has absorbed much of…

Long-term data show a recent acceleration in chemical and physical changes in the ocean

(Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences) New research published in Nature Communications Earth & Environment uses data from two sustained open-ocean hydrographic stations (Hydrostation ‘S’ and the Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study) in the North Atlantic Ocean near Bermuda to demonstrate recent changes in ocean physics and chemistry since the 1980s. The study shows decadal variability and recent acceleration of surface warming, salinification, deoxygenation, and changes in carbon dioxide (CO2)-carbonate chemistry that drives ocean acidification.

World’s longest-running carbon dioxide measurement receives continuation funding

(Schmidt Ocean Institute) The Keeling Curve carbon dioxide measurement-the long-term atmospheric measurement that alerted the world to human-induced climate change- will receive $1 million in continuation funding from philanthropists Eric and Wendy Schmidt, Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego announced today. In addition, the couple’s Schmidt Ocean Institute awarded a separate $450,000 grant to the university to support complementary ocean acidification measurements in the Atlantic and Pacific.

Futuristic Recycling Ideas That Could Be Reality By 2050

The recycling industry has seen so many changes over the decades. As early as the late-1800s, men were going from one home to the next looking for worn-out clothing. Why? Companies bought the “rags” to turn them into paper and hired men to collect those rags. This was just the beginning. Every decade, recycling advances. […]
