Researchers solve mystery of deep-sea fish with tubular eyes and transparent head

...bout Macropinna microstoma also apply to other deep-sea fish with tubular eyes. The bizarre physiological adaptations of the barreleyes have puzzled oceanographers for generations. It is only with the advent of modern underwater robots that scientists have been able to observe such animals in their native environ...

...person ever to describe this process, called anaerobic oxidation of methane, or AOM, which was of equally great interest to ecologists, geologists and oceanographers as it was to microbiologists and biochemists. With her research work Boetius has made a decisive contribution to the understanding of one of the most ...

ESA contributes to ocean carbon cycle research

...the merged data are better than data from the three individual sensors. In addition to aiding carbon cycle research, ocean colour data can provide oceanographers with the information they need to monitor the state of the oceans for other applications, such as for the fisheries and aquaculture industries.

...redicted months in advance. That's where computer modeling can help. While cyst abundance gives a general indication of the magnitude of the bloom, oceanographers Dennis McGillicuddy, a senior scientist in the WHOI Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering department, and his colleague Ruoying He of North Carolina S...

Marine scientists warn of potential for spring, summer red tide outbreak in Gulf of Maine

...redicted months in advance. That's where computer modeling can help. While cyst abundance gives a general indication of the magnitude of the bloom, oceanographers Dennis McGillicuddy of WHOI and Ruoying He of NCSU have been working with Anderson to better understand the growth and transport of the toxic cells us...

Phytoplankton cell membranes challenge fundamentals of biochemistry

...s-starved cell greedily absorbs it. For comparison, in the Pacific Ocean phosphorus may linger for nearly a year before being used by plankton. But oceanographers find phytoplankton living and growing rather well in the Sargasso Sea. In particular, small photosynthetic bacteria called cyanobacteria flourish in a...

Fishdunnit! Mystery solved

The new findings of fish-produced calcium carbonate provides an explanation: fish produce more soluble forms of calcium carbonate, which ...

Ecologists use oceanographic data to predict future climate change
