Mixing it, Southern Ocean style
Sea water being churned in the ocean off Antarctica may be having a greater effect on global patterns of ocean movement than previously thought, according to new research reported in this week's edition of the international journal Science (9 January 2004). View News Article (2004-01-05)


Volcano fuels massive phytoplankton bloom
Advocates for seeding regions of the ocean with iron to combat global warming should be interested in a new study published today in Geophysical Research Letters. View News Article (2010-10-06)


Clouds, a weapon against climate change?
Some clouds cool the earth. But how are these clouds formed? How does the chemistry of the ocean affect their formation? View News Article (2011-05-12)


Indian eddies supply Atlantic Ocean with warm water
Water from the Indian Ocean does not reach the South Atlantic Ocean continuously, but in separate packages. These are called Agulhas eddies, after the current along the east coast of Southern Africa where they originate from. View News Article (2005-10-11)


State of the steric sea level rise, 1955-2003
Based on a detailed analysis of ocean vertical temperature profiles for the 1955-2008 period, Sydney Levitus, lead author, talks about the change of global average sea level induced by the observed warming of the world ocean during the past 53 years. View News Article (2009-02-17)


Climate change will affect carbon sequestration in oceans, model shows
The direct injection of carbon dioxide deep into the ocean has been suggested as one method to help control rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere and mitigate the effects of global warming. View News Article (2005-09-08)


York survey highlights ocean research priorities
Declines in ocean productivity, increases in ocean acidification, and the cumulative effects of multiple stressors on ocean health are among the most pressing issues facing coastal and maritime countries, according to a survey of scientists by a University of York researcher.  View News Article (2014-08-13)


Aquatic creatures mix ocean water
Understanding mixing in the ocean is of fundamental importance to modeling climate change or predicting the effects of an El Niño on our weather. Modern ocean models primarily incorporate the effects of winds and tides. However, they do not generally take into account the mixing generated by swimming animals. View News Article (2009-11-23)


Antarctic krill provide carbon sink in Southern Ocean
New research on Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), a shrimp-like animal at the heart of the Southern Ocean food chain, reveals behaviour that shows that they absorb and transfer more carbon from the Earth's surface than was previously understood. View News Article (2006-02-07)


Oceanic seesaw links Northern and Southern hemisphere during abrupt climate change
Very large and abrupt changes in temperature recorded over Greenland and across the North Atlantic during the last Ice Age were actually global in extent, according to an international team of researchers led by Cardiff University. View News Article (2009-02-26)
