Study finds surprising new pathway for North Atlantic circulation By Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 10:45 PM Wed 27 May 2009
Oceanographers have long known that the 20-year-old paradigm for describing the global ocean circulation – called the Great Ocean Conveyor – was an oversimplification. But while the conveyor belt paradigm establishes the melody, the subtleties and intricacies of the symphony of global ocean circulation largely remain a puzzle. ...[more]

Greenland’s ‘good news’ methane finding By CSIRO, 10:44 AM Thu 30 Apr 2009
Ice core research has revealed that a vast, potential source of the potent greenhouse gas, methane, is more stable in a warming world than previously thought. Massive quantities of methane are locked away in permafrost and in the ocean floors as methane clathrate – an ice-like material which can return to gas if temperatures increase or pressures drop. ...[more]

Baby fish shaped by mothers' stress By ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, 8:41 PM Tue 21 Apr 2009
Stressed reef fish mothers produce highly active babies, and this affects survival and has important implications for fish populations. A study has been undertaken that deepens our understanding of how stress affects the dynamics of wild fish populations and hence how fish may cope with increasing human-induced stresses. ...[more]


Antarctic subglacial mountain range the size of the Alps mapped By Australian Antarctic Division media, 3:37 PM Tue 21 Apr 2009
Flying twin-engine light aircraft the equivalent of three trips around the globe and working in temperatures that averaged -30 degrees Celsius, an international team of scientists has not only verified the existence of a mountain range that is suspected to have caused the massive East Antarctic Ice Sheet to form, but also has created a detailed picture of the rugged landscape buried under the ice. ...[more]
