Commentary Calls for Dedicated Funding for Gulf Ocean Observing Tools in Wake of DWH Settlement

In April, a U.S. District Court approved a $20 billion civil settlement for the deadly 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. Now, a new commentary in the peer-reviewed Marine Technology Society Journal is calling for some of those funds to be used to support ocean tools that will aid in the collection of real-time data in

Australian Researchers Call to Minimize Drone Impact on Wildlife

University of Adelaide environmental researchers have called for a ‘code of best practice’ in using unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) for wildlife monitoring and protection, and other biological field research. The researchers, from the University’s Unmanned Research Aircraft Facility (URAF) or Adelaide Drone Hub, say that drones are a useful tool for field research and their

NSF Grant to Help NAU Grow Drone Technology for Biologists and Ecologists

Wildlife biologists and ecologists are data starved because current technologies for tracking small animals are time intensive and produce low sample sizes, said Paul Flikkema, Northern Arizona University professor of electrical engineering. NAU researchers have been awarded a National Science Foundation grant to develop an unmanned aerial vehicle to find animals in the wild that

Satellite Readings Show Methane and Carbon Dioxide on the Rise

Satellite readings show that atmospheric methane and carbon dioxide are continuing to increase despite global efforts to reduce emissions. Methane concentrations were somewhat constant until 2007, but since then have increased at about 0.3% per year, whereas global carbon dioxide levels continue to rise at about 0.5% per year. The results, presented this week at

Remote Real-Time Monitoring of Offshore Oil and Gas Operations

Over the last 25 years, deep-water oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico has increased significantly. With the move into greater water depths and with deeper wells being drilled, operations can experience higher pressures, increased temperatures, and greater uncertainty. A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recommends how

Six Years After Deepwater Horizon Spill Still Looking for Answers

It’s been six years since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill occurred in the Gulf of Mexico and scientists are still working to understand how oil and other pollutants move in the ocean. The incident, which occurred in April 2010, is considered the largest accidental marine oil spill in history. University of Delaware’s Helga Huntley is

Potential of Satellite Remote Sensing to Monitor Species Diversity

The importance of measuring species diversity as an indicator of ecosystem health has been long recognized and it seems that satellite remote sensing (SRS) has proven to be one of the most cost-effective approaches to identify biodiversity hotspots and predict changes in species composition. What is the real potential of SRS and what are the
