Microscopic marine life plays a fundamental role in the health of the ocean and, ultimately, the planet. Floating robots help map phytoplankton productivity
Microplastics form when the sun's rays and the oceans waves break down plastic rubbish in the sea. These small flecks of plastic are harmful to marine organisms and ecosystems. Microplastics can be carried hundreds or thousands of miles away from the source by ocean currents, making it difficult to track and remove them. Currently, the main source of information about the location of microplastics comes from fisher boat trawlers that use nets to catch plankton - and, unintentionally, microplastics. New technique uses NASA's Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System
A pioneering new approach to using space data to support the development of renewable energy sites, such as floating offshore wind is...
New technology which can listen to, and identify, right whales could help protect these extremely endangered animals. Finding the animals before they get close to ships can both protect animals and avoid costly shutdowns of offshore operations.
Their technique uses marine sea squirts to detect, count and characterise nanoplastics.If you've been to your local beach,...
Watch the path of the litter as it spreads across the oceans, and see which countries are the worst
>When mussels feed, they open their shells; but if there's something noxious in the water, they immediately close their shells, all at once. New fitbit for mussels gives early warning of toxins.
What happens to baby turtles after they scramble off the sandy beaches where they are born and swim into the open ocean?
Autonomous underwater vehicles have become versatile tools for exploring the seas. But they can be disruptive to the environment.
Flexible underwater robot can propel itself through water in the same style as nature's most efficient swimmer - the Aurelia aurita jellyfish.
