Say goodbye to this ocean surveillance satellite

The Jason 2 / OSTM satellite provided insights into ocean currents and sea-level rise with tangible benefits for ocean forecasting, meteorology, and climate change understanding. These observations are continued by his successor Jason-3. Credit: NASA / JPL-Caltech The Jason-2 / Ocean Surface Topography Mission (OSTM), the third in a US-European series of satellite measurements to measure sea surface elevation, successfully …

Antarctic glaciers slip faster towards the ocean due to surface melting

The surface meltwater flowing through the ice and under the Antarctic glaciers leads to new research on sudden and rapid accelerations of the flow towards the sea. It is the first time that scientists have discovered that melting on the surface affects the flow of Antarctic glaciers. A study shows for the first time a direct correlation between surface smelting …

The Ocean Cleanup study shows how plastic gets into the Pacific Garbage Patch

The oceans accumulate approximately 8.8 million tonnes of plastic every year, but it is estimated that only about 270,000 tonnes float on the sea surface. For years, most scientists have believed that after entering the ocean, the "missing" plastic quickly decomposes and breaks down into microplastics – tiny fragments that are less than 5 millimeters long. These tiny pieces then …

Multidecadal increase of plastic particles in coastal ocean sediments

Abstract We analyzed coastal sediments of the Santa Barbara Basin, California, for historical changes in microplastic deposition with a box core that extended over the years 1834-2009. The sediment was visually sorted by plastic and a subset confirmed as plastic polymers by FTIR spectroscopy (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy). After correcting contaminants introduced during sample processing, we noted an exponential increase …
