NSF, NASA scientists explore ocean's 'twilight zone' to uncover links between carbon and plankton

Mon, 06/18/2018 - 13:00

Equipped with advanced underwater robotics and an array of analytical instrumentation, a team of scientists will set sail for the northeastern Pacific Ocean this August.

The researchers' mission for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), which are supporting the project, is to study the life and death of microscopic plankton, tiny plant and animal organisms that play a critical role in removing carbon dioxide from the ...

To forecast winter rainfall in Los Angeles, look to New Zealand in the summer

Wed, 06/13/2018 - 17:00

Variability in El Niño cycles was long considered a reliable tool for predicting winter precipitation in the Southwest United States, but its forecasting power has diminished in recent years.

In a study published today in Nature Communications, National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported scientists at the University of California, Irvine (UCI), have found a new method to project wet or dry conditions for the winter ahead.

"Influences between the hemispheres ...

Land-based portion of massive East Antarctic Ice Sheet retreated little during past 8 million years

Wed, 06/13/2018 - 14:00

Large parts of the massive East Antarctic Ice Sheet did not retreat significantly during a time when atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations were similar to today's levels, according to a team of researchers funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The finding could have significant implications for global sea level rise.

The East Antarctic Ice Sheet is one of three major ice sheets closely watched by scientists as global temperatures and carbon dioxide levels increase, ...
