*  Trashed: Across the Pacific Ocean, Plastics, Plastics, Everywhere CHARLES MOORE / Natural History v.
Air. Throughout the race our strategy, like that of every other boat in the race, had been mainly to avoid the North Pacific subtropical gyre-the great high-pressure system in the central Pacific Ocean that, most of the time, is centered just north of the racecourse and halfway between Hawaii and the mainland. In the week it took to cross the subtropical high, no matter what time of day I looked, plastic debris was floating everywhere: bottles, bottle caps, wrappers, fragments. My interest in marine debris did not begin with my crossing of the North Pacific subtropical gyre. And for the past fifty years or so, plastics that have made their way into the Pacific Ocean have been fragmenting and accumulating as a kind of swirling sewer in the North Pacific subtropical gyre. Plastics and other waste have accumulated in the region, which includes the foraging areas of Pacific bird colonies, such as that of the Tern Island albatross, shown in blue, and that of the Guadalupe Island albatross, shown in green. Those hi...

*  South Pacific Gyre
... NOTOC The 'Southern Pacific Gyre ' is part of the Earth’s system of rotating ocean currents, bounded by the Equator to the north, Australia to the west, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current to the south, and South America to the east. The center of the South Pacific Gyre is the site on Earth farthest from any continents and productive ocean regions and is regarded as Earth’s largest oceanic desert. 1 Sediment flux and accumulation Subseafloor biosphere Water color See also References. Sediment flux and accumulation. The low levels of nutrients in the region result in extremely low primary productivity in the ocean surface and subsequently very low flux of organic material settling to the ocean floor as marine snow. The low levels of biogenic and eolian deposition cause sediments to accumulate on the ocean floor very slowly. Subseafloor biosphere. Beneath the seafloor, the marine sediments and surrounding porewaters contain an unusual subseafloor biosphere. Despite extremely low amounts of buried organic...

Congenital hypothyroid cases in 5 states on Pacific ocean increased by +28% from 3/17 to 6/30/2011 0. Highest levels of I-131 and airborne gross beta were documented in the five US States on the Pacific Ocean. At the time of the analysis, data were only available up to October 4, 2011, and thus results for the periods January 1 to October 4 were com- pared for 2010 and 2011. To identify an “exposed” population, we selected 18 EPA stations in the five Pacific/West Coast States for which at least 20 gross beta measurements were made during both 2010 and 2011. The data show that in the 18 sites in the Pacific/West Coast “exposed” was 7.345 times higher in the March 15-April 30 period, compared to just 2.397 in the 31 other sites “controls”, a ratio of 3.06. 2013 Elevated airborne beta levels in Pacific/West Coast US States and trends in hypothyroidism among newborns after the Fukushima nuclear meltdown.

*  Into the Blue Serengeti | Natural History Magazine
Into the Blue Serengeti. Into the Blue Serengeti The migrations of Pacific predators resemble those of African wildlife. Leatherback turtles in the eastern Pacific were tagged at their nesting sites in Costa Rica and Mexico; western Pacific turtles were tagged at nesting sites in Indonesia and on their foraging grounds off the coast of California. That’s especially true in the marine ecosystem defined by the California Current, where whales, sharks, tuna, seals, seabirds, and turtles migrate each year. Like the African savanna, says Costa, the Pacific Ocean has a “Big Five”: he compares great white sharks to lions, bluefin tuna to leopards, blue whales to African elephants, leatherback sea turtles to black rhinos, and elephant seals to Cape buffaloes. Scientists see parallels between migration patterns of prey, predators, and scavengers in East Africa’s Serengeti region and movements of species in the Pacific. “The movements of marine species in the California Current are similar to those in the Serengeti,” s...

Photo 3 An international team of scientists led by University of Hawai i at M noa oceanographer David Karl has documented a regular, significant and unexpected increase in the amount of particulate matter exported to the deep sea in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. Measuring the biological carbon pump Using 13 years of Hawai i Ocean Time-series HOT data from Station ALOHA A Long-term Oligotrophic Habitat Assessment about 100 miles north of O ahu, the scientists identified a rapid, predictable summer jump in the amount of total carbon, organic carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and biogenic silica transferred from sunlit surface waters to the ocean depths through what is called the biological carbon pump. This summer export pulse is approximately threefold greater than mean wintertime particle fluxes and fuels more efficient carbon sequestr...

Earth. Earth Sciences. Sea surface temperature readings from November, December and January in degrees Celsius show warm water bands off Baja California and the Southern California Bight. Credit: NOAA DAAC The ongoing El Nino of 2010 is affecting north Pacific Ocean ecosystems in ways that could affect the West Coast fishing industry, according to scientists at NOAA and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. Researchers with the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations CalCOFI at Scripps and NOAA's Southwest Fisheries Science Center report a stronger than normal northward movement of warm water up the Southern California coast, a high sea-level event in January and low abundances of plankton and pelagic fish — all conditions consistent with El Niño. Sea surface temperatures along the entire West Coast are 0.5 to 1 degree Celsius 0.9 to 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal and at points off Southern California are as much as 1.6 degrees Celsius 2.9 degrees Fahrenheit higher than...

Rod Adam’s had a guest posting recently and I saw this comment as he often has brilliant comments of his own but one of his followers, Evan Zwack who uses EZ, made this great observation to the level of art. “The thing that has gone the farthest in convincing me that the fears about nuclear power are overblown is the difference between the way that anti nuclear people treat radiation from nuclear power, and radiation from all other sources. Your article did a good j o b of showing those differences. The oceans have Uranium in them. In the pacific ocean the radiation from Uranium is 22 EBq or 22,000,000 trillion becquerels.

*  The Death Of The Pacific Ocean
... Fukushima Debris Soon To Hit American Shores. By Yoichi Shimatsu Exclusive To Rense.com. Hong Kong-Based Environmental Consultant. Former General Editor Japan Times Weekly In Tokyo. 12-16-11. An unstoppable tide of radioactive trash and chemical waste from Fukushima is pushing ever closer to North America. An estimated 20 million tons of smashed timber, capsized boats and industrial wreckage is more than halfway across the ocean, based on sightings off Midway by a Russian ship's crew. Safe disposal of the solid waste will be monumental task, but the greater threat lies in the invisible chemical stew mixed with sea water. This new triple disaster floating from northeast Japan is an unprecedented nuclear, biological and chemical NBC contamination event. Radioactive isotopes cesium and strontium are by now in the marine food chain, moving up the bio-ladder from plankton to invertebrates like squid and then into fish like salmon and halibut. Sea animals are also exposed to the millions of tons of biological ...

Boninite magma is formed by second stage melting in forearc s via hydration of previously depleted mantle within the mantle wedge above a subducted slab, causing further melting of the already depleted peridotite. The extremely low content of titanium, which is an incompatible element within melting of peridotite is the result of previous melting events that removed most of the incompatible elements from the residual mantle source. Boninite attains its high magnesium and very low titanium content via high degrees of partial melting within the convecting mantle wedge. The high degrees of partial melting are caused by the high water content of the mantle. With the addition of slab-derived volatiles, and inco...

The article clarifies the aldehyde chemical composition of volatile citrus-like odorants present in crested and whiskered auklets, two planktivorous seabird species abundant in the Bering Sea and North Pacific Ocean. The article shows that whiskered and crested auklets produce slightly different citrus-like odors. Crested auklets emit even-numbered aldehydes while whiskered auklets emit odd-numbered aldehydes.

... thumb|350px|The anomaly at an altitude of approximately 560 kilometers. 1 The 'South Atlantic Anomaly' SAA is an area where the Earth's inner Van Allen radiation belt comes closest to the Earth 's surface dipping down to an altitude of 200 km 124 mi. The effect is caused by the non-concentricity of the Earth and its magnetic dipole, and the SAA is the near-Earth region where the Earth's magnetic field is weakest relative to an idealized Earth-centered dipole field. Position and shape Effects See also References External links. The Van Allen radiation belts are symmetric about the Earth's magnetic axis, which is tilted with respect to the Earth's rotational axis by an angle of approximately 11 degrees. Because of this asymmetry, the inner Van Allen belt is closest to the Earth's surface over the south Atlantic ocean where it dips down to 200 km 124 mi altitude, and farthest from the Earth's surface over the north Pacific ocean. 2 thumb|350px|A cross-sectional view of the Van Allen radiation belts, noting ...

I am already far north of London, and as I walk in the streets of Petersburgh, I feel a cold northern breeze play upon my cheeks, which braces my nerves and fills me with delight. This breeze, which has travelled from the regions towards which I am advancing, gives me a foretaste of those icy climes.

Ocean-surface temperatures from Maine to North Carolina have shot to their highest in 150 years, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA announced on April 25. "Sea surface temperatures SSTs in the Northeast Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem during 2012 were the highest ever recorded in both long-term observational and short-term remote sensing time series," said NOAA in a statement containing data from the agency's Northeast Fisheries Science Center. The next-highest temperature reading in this region was registered in 1951, NOAA said. A study published earlier this year in the journal Geophysical Research Letters discussed overall increasing ocean temperatures, noting that oceans absorb much more heat energy than air and could be another indicator of climate change..

Why the ocean matters. **Update: June 10, 2014** Ocean Conservancy has been a leader in beach cleanup efforts for nearly 30 years and we are dedicated to continuing these efforts. We applaud Boyan’s creativity and ideas for an ocean cleanup and recognize that he has conducted a feasibility study to further outline the ocean cleanup model. However, the majority of concerns previously voiced by ocean scientists, as well as Ocean Conservancy, regarding the ecological, economical and logistical components of the technology still remain unanswered. Cleanups are an important part of the solution, but Ocean Conservancy believes that in order to address the growing issue of plastic pollution in our ocean, we must also focus on preventing plastic from reaching the ocean in the first place. In addition to our Last Straw Challenge, we will be rolling out a series of efforts over the coming year that we hope you ll participate in, including the International Coastal Cleanup September 20th.

... genus = ' Halofolliculina ' binomial = 'Halofolliculina corallasia' binomial authority = Antonius and Lipscomb, 2001 }} 'Halofolliculina corallasia' is a heterotrich ciliate identified as a cause of the syndrome called Skeletal Eroding Band SEB. corallasia' is sessile and lives in a "house" called a lorica, into which the cell can retreat when disturbed. The mouth is flanked by a pair of wing-like projections that are fringed with polykinetid s, groups of cilia that work in groups to produce a current that draws food into the "mouth". This species is so far the only known agent causing Skeletal Eroding Band, the most common disease of coral s in the Indian and Pacific Ocean s, and also found in the Red Sea. A very similar disease was later discovered in the Caribbean Sea, but is caused by a different species of the same genus and occurs in a different type of environment.

The ocean the Titanic sailed through just over 100 years ago was very different from the one we swim in today. Global warming is increasing ocean temperatures and harming marine food webs. Nitrogen run-off from fertilizers is causing coastal dead zones. A McGill-led international research team has now completed the first global study of changes that occurred in a crucial component of ocean chemistry, the nitrogen cycle, at the end of the last ice age. The results of their study confirm that oceans are good at balancing the nitrogen cycle on a global scale. But the data also shows that it is a slow process that may take many centuries, or even mill...

Discoveries. Space. Futures. Gaming. Earth. Motherboard. To Revive Dying Oceans, Try Sinking a Bunch of Trees. Sinking logs into the bottom of the ocean could provide nutrients in a similar fashion to the hydrothermal vents above via. A businessman from San Francisco named Russ George, for example, got in big trouble last year after conducting an unlicensed geoengineering experiment off the Canadian coast. George's idea was to use the nutrient-rich sulfate to stimulate the growth of plankton--a foundational part of the marine food chain--which would reinvigorate declining populations of the region's salmon while absorbing large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere and sequestering it at the bottom of the ocean. This week, a team of German researchers released a study suggesting that ocean fertilization can be assist...

The deep ocean floor is a dark, cold, remote, and seemingly lifeless place that until recently lay largely below the radar of science and exploration. “Typically the deep sea is very sparsely populated and at first glance it may appear as a vast, desolated plain of mud,” said Jeffrey Drazen, a marine biologist with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Ins...

Oriole in the woody shrubs Photo by Bob Isenberg. I know spring is here, not by the calendar, but because I saw my first oriole at Morro Rock today. A beautiful male in breeding plumage. I got off a dozen shots of him with my Canon 70 D, but he was so elusive in the willow thicket all I got was a lot of foliage and a little color of him. When my “beach chair” birding buddies* arrive here from New York, they will take care of him. The south side falcons are in their fourth day of incubation.

Post navigation. ← Previous. Live Racing Set to Return to Ocean Downs. Posted on. DispatchAdmin. BERLIN- Live racing returns to Ocean Downs tomorrow night for the 58 th year with the first two days of what will be a 40-day live meet at the historic harness racing track near Berlin. The 40-day summer live meet at Ocean Downs will feature 10 races nightly with the first post-time each night at 7:35 p.m. Live racing will be held each Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the summer and the meet will end a little late this year on August 25. The only exception on the calendar is Wednesday, July 4, due to the Ocean Pines community fireworks show held at the track. Ocean Downs officials brought in nationally recognized track expert Greg Coon to revamp the track surface at the historic track on Route 589 near Ocean Pines. “It will help traction and there will be no cupping out. It’ll be very safe and probably one of the best half-mile tracks in the world.”. Opening night of the live meet will fea...

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have finally offloaded their Malibu mansion. The estate has been up for sale numerous times since 1995, and was listed two years ago for $14.749 million. Hawn and Russell had to take a hit with the sale, as the home ultimately went for $9.5 million, The Los Angeles Times reports. The longtime Hollywood couple first purchased the home in the mid-’80s. The 4,200-square-foot mansion sits on the Pacific Ocean and was redesigned as recently as 2005. Recently Hawn and Russell had been renting out the home for $90,000 a month.

Ecosystem of the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre: The North Pacific Subtropical Gyre (NPSG) is the largest contiguous ecosystem on earth. In oceanography, a subtropical gyre is a ring-like system of ocean currents rotating clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere caused by the Coriolis Effect.South Brother (Chagos Bank): South Brother, also known as Île du Sud, is a 23 ha coral island on the Great Chagos Bank atoll of the Chagos Archipelago in the British Indian Ocean Territory. It is one of the three islands in the Three Brothers group on the western side of the atoll, and forms part of the Chagos Archipelago strict nature reserve.Sea urchin injury: Sea urchin injuries are caused by contact with sea urchins, and are characterized by puncture wounds inflicted by the animal's brittle, fragile spines.Deep chlorophyll maximum: A deep chlorophyll maximum (DCM) is a subsurface maximum in the concentration of chlorophyll in the ocean or a lake. A DCM is not always present--sometimes there is more chlorophyll at the surface than at any greater depth--but it is a common feature of most aquatic ecosystems.Anoxic event: Oceanic anoxic events or anoxic events (anoxia conditions) refer to intervals in the Earth's past where portions of oceans become depleted in oxygen (O2) at depths over a large geographic area. During some of these events, euxinia develops - euxinia refers to anoxic waters that contain hydrogen sulfide.List of drainage basins by area: The list of drainage basins by area identifies basins (also known as watersheds or catchments), sorted by area, which drain to oceans, mediterranean seas, rivers, lakes and other water bodies. All basins larger than are included as well as selected smaller basins.Anthopleurin: Anthopleurin is a toxin from the venom of the sea anemones Anthopleura xanthogrammica and Anthopleura elegantissima. These anemones use anthopleurin as a pheromone to quickly withdraw their tentacles in the presence of predators.Middle North Sea Group: The Middle North Sea Group (abbreviation: NM) is a group of geologic formations in the Dutch subsurface, part of the North Sea Supergroup. The three formations of this group form a thick sequence of sediments in the Dutch subsurface, they crop out in parts of the southern Netherlands.Bodega Marine Reserve: Bodega Marine Reserve is a nature reserve and marine reserve on the coast of northern California, located in the vicinity of the Bodega Marine Laboratory on Bodega Head. It is a unit of the University of California Natural Reserve System, that is administered by the University of California, Davis.PhytoplanktonIsostichopus badionotus: Isostichopus badionotus, also known as the chocolate chip cucumber or the cookie dough sea cucumber, is a species of sea cucumber in the family Stichopodidae. This species is common in the western Atlantic Ocean.Hydraulic action: Hydraulic action is erosion that occurs when the motion of water against a rock surface produces mechanical weathering. Most generally, it is the ability of moving water (flowing or waves) to dislodge and transport rock particles.Chaenocephalus aceratus: Chaenocephalus aceratus, the blackfin icefish, is a species of crocodile icefish known from around Bouvet Island and the northern Antarctic Peninsula where it occurs at depths of . This species grows to a length of TL.EcosystemStratosphere: The stratosphere is the second major layer of Earth's atmosphere, just above the troposphere, and below the mesosphere. It is stratified in temperature, with warmer layers higher up and cooler layers farther down.Continuous Plankton Recorder: The Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) survey is one of the longest running marine biological monitoring programmes in the world. Started in 1931 by Sir Alister Hardy, the CPR has provided marine scientists with their only measure of plankton communities on a pan-oceanic scale.Circumpolar Health Bibliographic DatabaseList of glaciers in the Antarctic: A-H: This is a list of glaciers in the Antarctic with a name starting with the letters A–H. This list does not include ice sheets, ice caps or ice fields, such as the Antarctic ice sheet, but includes glacial features that are defined by their flow, rather than general bodies of ice.Nankai Trough gas hydrate site: Nankai Methane Hydrate Site (or Japanese Methane Hydrate R&D Program at Nankai, Nankai Trough Methane Hydrate Site) is located in the Nankai Trough, Japan.Cyanobacterial non-coding RNA: In molecular biology, Cyanobacterial non-coding RNAs are non-coding RNAs which have been identified in species of cyanobacteria. Large scale screens have identified 21 Yfr (cYanobacterial functional RNAs) in the marine cyanobacterium Prochlorococcus and related species such as Synechococcus.Branching order of bacterial phyla (Gupta, 2001): There are several models of the Branching order of bacterial phyla, one of these was proposed in 2001 by Gupta based on conserved indels or protein, termed "protein signatures", an alternative approach to molecular phylogeny. Some problematic exceptions and conflicts are present to these conserved indels, however, they are in agreement with several groupings of classes and phyla.Artigas BaseGeolocation software: In computing, geolocation software is used to deduce the geolocation (geographic location) of another party. For example, on the Internet, one geolocation approach is to identify the subject party's IP address, then determine what country (including down to the city and post/ZIP code level), organization, or user the IP address has been assigned to, and finally, determine that party's location.List of geological phenomena: A geological phenomenon is a phenomenon which is explained by or sheds light on the science of geology.Black Sea (Christian Fennesz album)White band disease: White band disease is a coral disease that affects acroporid corals and is distinguishable by the white band of dead coral tissue that it forms.

(1/1633) Channeling of carbamoyl phosphate to the pyrimidine and arginine biosynthetic pathways in the deep sea hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus abyssi.

The kinetics of the coupled reactions between carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase (CPSase) and both aspartate transcarbamoylase (ATCase) and ornithine transcarbamoylase (OTCase) from the deep sea hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus abyssi demonstrate the existence of carbamoyl phosphate channeling in both the pyrimidine and arginine biosynthetic pathways. Isotopic dilution experiments and coupled reaction kinetics analyzed within the context of the formalism proposed by Ovadi et al. (Ovadi, J., Tompa, P., Vertessy, B., Orosz, F., Keleti, T., and Welch, G. R. (1989) Biochem. J. 257, 187-190) are consistent with a partial channeling of the intermediate at 37 degrees C, but channeling efficiency increases dramatically at elevated temperatures. There is no preferential partitioning of carbamoyl phosphate between the arginine and pyrimidine biosynthetic pathways. Gel filtration chromatography at high and low temperature and in the presence and absence of substrates did not reveal stable complexes between P. abyssi CPSase and either ATCase or OTCase. Thus, channeling must occur during the dynamic association of coupled enzymes pairs. The interaction of CPSase-ATCase was further demonstrated by the unexpectedly weak inhibition of the coupled reaction by the bisubstrate analog, N-(phosphonacetyl)-L-aspartate (PALA). The anomalous effect of PALA suggests that, in the coupled reaction, the effective concentration of carbamoyl phosphate in the vicinity of the ATCase active site is 96-fold higher than the concentration in the bulk phase. Channeling probably plays an essential role in protecting this very unstable intermediate of metabolic pathways performing at extreme temperatures.  (+info)

(2/1633) Sex-biased dispersal in sperm whales: contrasting mitochondrial and nuclear genetic structure of global populations.

The social organization of most mammals is characterized by female philopatry and male dispersal. Such sex-biased dispersal can cause the genetic structure of populations to differ between the maternally inherited mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and the bi-parental nuclear genome. Here we report on the global genetic structure of oceanic populations of the sperm whale, one of the most widely distributed mammalian species. Groups of females and juveniles are mainly found at low latitudes, while males reach polar waters, returning to tropical and subtropical waters to breed. In comparisons between oceans, we did not find significant heterogeneity in allele frequencies of microsatellite loci (exact test; p = 0.23). Estimates of GST = 0.001 and RST = 0.005 also indicated negligible if any nuclear DNA differentiation. We have previously reported significant differentiation between oceans in mtDNA sequences. These contrasting patterns suggest that interoceanic movements have been more prevalent among males than among females, consistent with observations of females being the philopatric sex and having a more limited latitudinal distribution than males. Consequently, the typical mammalian dispersal pattern may have operated on a global scale in sperm whales.  (+info)

(3/1633) RecD function is required for high-pressure growth of a deep-sea bacterium.

A genomic library derived from the deep-sea bacterium Photobacterium profundum SS9 was conjugally delivered into a previously isolated pressure-sensitive SS9 mutant, designated EC1002 (E. Chi and D. H. Bartlett, J. Bacteriol. 175:7533-7540, 1993), and exconjugants were screened for the ability to grow at 280-atm hydrostatic pressure. Several clones were identified that had restored high-pressure growth. The complementing DNA was localized and in all cases found to possess strong homology to recD, a DNA recombination and repair gene. EC1002 was found to be deficient in plasmid stability, a phenotype also seen in Escherichia coli recD mutants. The defect in EC1002 was localized to a point mutation that created a stop codon within the recD gene. Two additional recD mutants were constructed by gene disruption and were both found to possess a pressure-sensitive growth phenotype, although the magnitude of the defect depended on the extent of 3' truncation of the recD coding sequence. Surprisingly, the introduction of the SS9 recD gene into an E. coli recD mutant had two dramatic effects. At high pressure, SS9 recD enabled growth in the E. coli mutant strain under conditions of plasmid antibiotic resistance selection and prevented cell filamentation. Both of these effects were recessive to wild-type E. coli recD. These results suggest that the SS9 recD gene plays an essential role in SS9 growth at high pressure and that it may be possible to identify additional aspects of RecD function through the characterization of this activity.  (+info)

(4/1633) Bacillus marismortui sp. nov., a new moderately halophilic species from the Dead Sea.

A group of 91 moderately halophilic, Gram-positive, rod-shaped strains were isolated from enrichments prepared from Dead Sea water samples collected 57 years ago. These strains were examined for 117 morphological, physiological, biochemical, nutritional and antibiotic susceptibility characteristics. All strains formed endospores and were motile, strictly aerobic and positive for catalase and oxidase. They grew in media containing 5-25% (w/v) total salts, showing optimal growth at 10% (w/v). Eighteen strains were chosen as representative isolates and were studied in more detail. All these strains had mesodiaminopimelic acid in the cell wall and a DNA G + C content of 39.0-42.8 mol%; they constitute a group with levels of DNA-DNA similarity of 70-100%. The sequences of the 16S rRNA genes of three representative strains (strains 123T, 557 and 832) were almost identical (99.9%), and placed the strains in the low G + C content Gram-positive bacteria. On the basis of their features, these isolates should be regarded as members of a new species of the genus Bacillus, for which the name Bacillus marismortui sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is strain 123T (= DSM 12325T = ATCC 700626T = CIP 105609T = CECT 5066T).  (+info)

(5/1633) Climate and satellite indicators to forecast Rift Valley fever epidemics in Kenya.

All known Rift Valley fever virus outbreaks in East Africa from 1950 to May 1998, and probably earlier, followed periods of abnormally high rainfall. Analysis of this record and Pacific and Indian Ocean sea surface temperature anomalies, coupled with satellite normalized difference vegetation index data, shows that prediction of Rift Valley fever outbreaks may be made up to 5 months in advance of outbreaks in East Africa. Concurrent near-real-time monitoring with satellite normalized difference vegetation data may identify actual affected areas.  (+info)

(6/1633) The diving physiology of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). I. Balancing the demands of exercise for energy conservation at depth.

During diving, marine mammals must rely on the efficient utilization of a limited oxygen reserve sequestered in the lungs, blood and muscles. To determine the effects of exercise and apnea on the use of these reserves, we examined the physiological responses of adult bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) trained to breath-hold on the water surface or to dive to submerged targets at depths between 60 and 210 m. Changes in blood lactate levels, in partial pressures of oxygen and carbon dioxide and in heart rate were assessed while the dolphins performed sedentary breath-holds. The effects of exercise on breath-hold capacity were examined by measuring heart rate and post-dive respiration rate and blood lactate concentration for dolphins diving in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii. Ascent and descent rates, stroke frequency and swimming patterns were monitored during the dives. The results showed that lactate concentration was 1.1+/-0.1 mmol l(-1) at rest and increased non-linearly with the duration of the sedentary breath-hold or dive. Lactate concentration was consistently higher for the diving animals at all comparable periods of apnea. Breakpoints in plots of lactate concentration and blood gas levels against breath-hold duration (P(O2), P(CO2)) for sedentary breath-holding dolphins occurred between 200 and 240 s. In comparison, the calculated aerobic dive limit for adult dolphins was 268 s. Descent and ascent rates ranged from 1.5 to 2.5 m s(-1) during 210 m dives and were often outside the predicted range for swimming at low energetic cost. Rather than constant propulsion, diving dolphins used interrupted modes of swimming, with more than 75 % of the final ascent spent gliding. Physiological and behavioral measurements from this study indicate that superimposing swimming exercise on apnea was energetically costly for the diving dolphin but was circumvented in part by modifying the mode of swimming.  (+info)

(7/1633) Bacterial swimming strategies and turbulence.

Most bacteria in the ocean can be motile. Chemotaxis allows bacteria to detect nutrient gradients, and hence motility is believed to serve as a method of approaching sources of food. This picture is well established in a stagnant environment. In the ocean a shear microenvironment is associated with turbulence. This shear flow prevents clustering of bacteria around local nutrient sources if they swim in the commonly assumed "run-and-tumble" strategy. Recent observations, however, indicate a "back-and-forth" swimming behavior for marine bacteria. In a theoretical study we compare the two bacterial swimming strategies in a realistic ocean environment. The "back-and-forth" strategy is found to enable the bacteria to stay close to a nutrient source even under high shear. Furthermore, rotational diffusion driven by thermal noise can significantly enhance the efficiency of this strategy. The superiority of the "back-and-forth" strategy suggests that bacterial motility has a control function rather than an approach function under turbulent conditions.  (+info)

(8/1633) Are there mechanical limits to size in wave-swept organisms?

Hydrodynamic forces imposed by ocean waves are thought to limit the size of nearshore plants and animals, but it has proved difficult to determine the mechanism. Explanations based on the scaling mismatch between hydrodynamic accelerational forces and the strength of organisms do not work. Mechanisms that incorporate the allometry of drag and strength accurately predict the maximal size of intertidal algae but not of animals, and internally imposed inertial forces may explain the limits to size in large kelps. The general question of size in wave-swept organisms remains open and intriguing.  (+info)


Is it bad to drink water with sea salt added?


I know why it's bad to drink water from the ocean/sea, but is it bad to drink water with sea salt added? A good quality sea salt has many, many trace minerals that are supposedly good for the body, so is it okay to add to water and drink it? Will it dehydrate you like water from the ocean/sea would, instead of hydrate you? Thanks in advance.
----------

It depends on the concentration, the problem with ocean water (besides pollution) is that it contains way too high a concentration of salts.

IF you add it to your water, add a VERY small amount (like 5-10 small crystals per glass of water). IF the salt is the size of bath salts or the kind you put on your driveway, only add 1-3 crystals.


What does it mean when I dream of my closest guy friend wrapping his arms around my waist?


We were on a big ferry or something like that. 
We were standing on the deck staring out into the ocean/sea while he was wrapping his arms around my waist.
What does my dream mean? I want to know, Thanks!
Lmao.. Uhm.. No I didn't watch Titanic, but your answers are quite amusing to read..
----------

It's a protective type dream.  It means you feel safe and comfortable with him.  A good sign for your friendship :)

The most obvious point is that the contact is close but comforting rather than sexual.


Are there large-scale fishing operations in inland freshwater bodies?


From what I gather, the fishing industry is mostly focused on salt water bodies: oceans, seas, bays, gulfs, etc.
I know there are freshwater fish, and that recreational fishing is popular in freshwater lakes, rivers, and streams.
My question is: are there any large-scale commercial/industrial fishing operations in inland freshwater bodies of water like rivers, streams, and lakes? Not necessarily even "large scale", but also just plain commercial fisherman. If so, please provide some examples. Examples from places other than the United States are also welcome. Thanks.
----------

Fresh water sources are not large enough to sustain "fishing" of the commercial type done in oceans. Most fresh water commerical fish supplies are from "farms".


What are some children names that have the meaning ocean/sea?


My wife and I have always loved to sail and we're expecting our first child! Its a boy and for the first name we're thinking either Jack or Jamie. Since we're such lovers of the sea though we thought it would be nice to give him a middle name after the sea but we don't know any names, so if you know any that have the meaning sea/ocean I would love to know!

and congrads! another idea is  the name of your boat or the boat that it is..or what body of water you love to sail on the most...


When the temperature of the ocean or sea changes does the taste of fish change?


I live in an area where we experience large variations in the temperature of the sea, so winter is quite cold and summer is very hot. The sea temperature becomes like a bath tub and most of the fish seem to leave.
But we do catch some grouper.
I would like to know if in summer when the water is warm does this make the fish taste more 'fishy'?
Could this be a reason why most fish that are caught commercially are sourced from colder waters and not tropical seas?
----------

It's not so much that they taste fishier or less fishy depending on water temp. The larger fish are farther in the ocean because there is more room, so commercial fishermen try to get the larger fish. The smaller fish will stay in shallower, warmer water because they don't need as much room and they can avoid predators/larger fish there.

Also, some fish can only live in certain conditions (temperature), so they leave when it becomes warm to avoid dying. The grouper most likely can stand a higher temperature than the other fish.


What is comparable to John Frieda Beach Blonde Line of Hair Care?


John Frieda used to make Beach Blonde line of hair products, what is comparable to these items? BEACH BLONDE COOL DIP Shampoo? Ocean Waves Sea Spray?
----------

Regarding the Ocean Waves Sea Spray, I found this online at folica.com and amazon.com
 
                        Sedu Beach Beauty Sea Salt Spray 

I haven't tried it yet, but I will be ordering it too. The reviews seem to be positive and it's only $8.99, which isn't too bad compared to the $50 some dollars it is going for on ebay. Good luck.


What do you think: Ocean and Sapphire for twin girls?


So, my sister is having twin girls!
She loves nature names, JUST LIKE ME.
I gave her these options and she loved them!

Sapphire for sure, but she is between Ocean and Sea.

Which one is better?
Sapphire and Ocean
or 
Sapphire and Sea

Give opinions, and please no rude comments.

I am sure your neices will be absolutely beautiful no matter what you name them.


I have my wrist pierced and the skin around it seems to be rising around it which means what?


it looks like its sinking in. what does that mean? im taking antibiotics and cleaning it 3-6 times a day with the H2O ocean spray sea salt for aftercare piercings. will this help the skin go down and not rise around and above the piercing?
----------

Apply ice to keep the swelling down. Go to the store and buy a gallon of distilled water and some non iodized fine sea salt. Add 2 teaspoons to the gallon and shake. Keep room temp. Pour some into a shot glass and microwave for 3 or 4 seconds. Submerge piercing. Hold for about 10 mins. Do this 2-3 times a day.
