Seabirds Warn of Ocean Change

What can 30 years of research and monitoring on Maine seabirds teach us? That the marine environment is changing fast. That ocean birds may be failing to adapt. That the scope of few marine threats – from ocean warming and offshore energy development to competition from commercial fisheries – could have been foreseen when Maine

NASA Satellite Data Help Pinpoint Glaciers’ Role in Sea Level Rise

A new study of glaciers worldwide using observations from two NASA satellites has helped resolve differences in estimates of how fast glaciers are disappearing and contributing to sea level rise. The new research found glaciers outside of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, repositories of 1 percent of all land ice, lost an average of

Using Earthquake Sensors to Track Endangered Whales

The fin whale is the second-largest animal ever to live on Earth. It is also, paradoxically, one of the least understood. The animal’s huge size and global range make its movements and behavior hard to study.

Sensors to Monitor Red Tides on Northeast Coast

The 2013 spring and summer red tide reason in New England is expected to be “moderate” according to NCCOS’s partner, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), forecast last month.  Ocean and weather data from the Gulf of Maine buoys play an important role in this forecasting effort. When developing this new red tide forecast system, scientists depended on historical

Fugro GEOS Introduces Airborne Ocean Current Measurement System

Combining recent advances in remote sensing and aerial survey, a new system for airborne current measurement has been developed to bridge the gap between satellite- and vessel-based ocean current measurements. ROCIS, the Remote Ocean Current Imaging System, combines Fugro expertise in airborne survey and operational oceanography with state-of-the-art technology and oceanographic research from Areté and

Rising Seas Could Threaten Many Acadia NP Marshes

More than 800 acres of uplands in and near Acadia National Park will likely be flooded by the ocean if sea level rises 2 feet during this century, leaving 75 percent of the saltwater marshes along this part of central Maine’s rugged coast with very little upland area to migrate into, according to a new
