Ocean Acidity Having Major Impact On Arctic Food Web Species
2013-12-03 06:27:12

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Tiny crustaceans, known as copepods, live just beneath the surface of the ocean. A research expedition to the Arctic, part of the Caitlin Arctic Survey, found that these tiny animals are more likely to battle for survival if ocean acidity continues to rise. The study, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), revealed that copepods that move large distances, migrating vertically across a wide range of pH...

Wellesley, Mass (PRWEB) December 02, 2013 According to a new technical market research report, Waste and Wastewater Treatment Technologies: Global Markets, from BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com), the...

USGS Reinstates Water Usage Reports For Thermonuclear Power
2013-11-26 09:04:56

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The US Geological Survey (USGS) announced on Monday that it will resume reporting on the amount of water consumed in the production of thermonuclear power to allow water resource managers a chance to evaluate the influence of this type of use on the overall water budget of a watershed. The use of heat and water budgets to estimate water consumption at individual thermoelectric plants provides a useful check on other estimation...

Tighter environmental regulations and water scarcity are pushing power plant operators to rethink their water supply and wastewater strategies. How can the water industry make the most of the opportunities? (PRWEB) November 22, 2013 Water and power generation are inseparable. Fossil fuel-fired power stations require a reliable, consistent stream of treated water to operate effectively. Wastewater streams generated from the combustion of coal need adequate treatment before being...

Instead of allowing concrete slurry wastewater from entering the sewers and polluting the ocean, contractors can solidify their waste with Gelmaxx products and dispose it in any standard trash can. (PRWEB) November 21, 2013 As more construction companies become environmentally conscious, they turn to Gelmaxx for a green solution. Gelmaxx has created a product that helps reduce the harmful impact that concrete slurry wastewater can have on the ocean. When contractors grind or cut concrete...

Scientists Demonstrate Influence Of Eddies On The Oxygen Sustenance
2013-11-18 13:25:24

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel More than four months from November 2012 to March 2013 Kiel ocean scientists investigated on the German research vessel METEOR the oxygen-poor upwelling regions in the tropical Pacific off Peru. First results of the project carried out in the context of the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 754 “Climate-biogeochemistry interactions in the tropical ocean” show, how eddies in the ocean influence the oxygen and nutrient distribution in the...

Wetland
2013-04-19 18:19:23

A wetland is an area of land that is saturated with water, either permanently or seasonally, such that it takes on the traits of a distinct ecosystem. First and foremost, the factor that distinguishes the wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the unique vegetation that has adapted to its characteristic soil conditions. The wetland consists mostly of hydric soil, which is supportive of aquatic plants. The water that is found in wetlands can be saltwater, brackish, or freshwater....

Arctic Ocean
2013-04-18 22:31:23

The Arctic Ocean which is located in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Arctic north polar region, is the shallowest and smallest of the world’s five major oceanic divisions. The International Hydrographic Organization recognizes it as an ocean, although, some oceanographers consider it as the Arctic Mediterranean Sea or simply, the Arctic Sea, classifying it a Mediterranean sea or an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean. Alternatively, the Arctic Ocean can be considered as the northernmost...

Little tunny, Euthynnus alletteratus
2013-03-28 14:07:39

The little tunny is found widespread in temperate and tropical waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Black Sea and Mediterranean Sea. It is the most common tuna and is highly migratory, with a range from Cape Cod, Massachusetts to Brazil in the Western Atlantic. In the Eastern Atlantic it is found from Skagerrak to South Africa. The little tunny will form schools close to the shoreline, around inlets, and sandbars that can cover up to two miles. This fish prefers warm water and will migrate south in...

Water Pollution
2013-03-25 12:43:15

Water pollution is the contamination of bodies of water including rivers, oceans, lakes, aquifers and groundwater. Water pollution is when pollutants are discharged directly or indirectly into a body of water without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds. Water pollution affects the plants and organisms that reside in these bodies of water. In almost all of the cases the effect is damaging not only to individual species and populations, but to the natural biological communities as...

Ocean Analysis for November 17, 2012
2012-11-17 08:24:58

Point #1: Warm finger- This region inside the area marked number 1, represents a warm finger of the ocean temperatures. What is occurring is that the warmer air is being pushed faster in this region than the surrounding locations giving us this little finger of warmer temps in that region. Point #2: Warm Eddie- This is a region of warmer temps surrounded on all sides by colder water. Eddies are a closed circulation of water in the ocean that has in this case warmer temps around it. These...
