The collective name for the islands of the Pacific Ocean northeast of Australia, including NEW CALEDONIA; VANUATU; New Hebrides, Solomon Islands, Admiralty Islands, Bismarck Archipelago, FIJI, etc. Melanesia (from the Greek melas, black + nesos, island) is so called from the black color of the natives who are generally considered to be descended originally from the Negroid Papuans and the Polynesians or Malays. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p748 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p344)
A republic consisting of an island group in Melanesia, in the southwest Pacific Ocean. Its capital is Port-Vila. It was called New Hebrides until 1980. It was discovered in 1606 by the Portuguese, forgotten for 160 years, then visited by Bougainville in 1768 and Captain Cook in 1774. It was under joint British and French administration from 1906 until it became independent in 1980 under the name of Vanuatu. The name is native, meaning our land.

Diversity of dissimilatory bisulfite reductase genes of bacteria associated with the deep-sea hydrothermal vent polychaete annelid Alvinella pompejana. (1/662)

A unique community of bacteria colonizes the dorsal integument of the polychaete annelid Alvinella pompejana, which inhabits the high-temperature environments of active deep-sea hydrothermal vents along the East Pacific Rise. The composition of this bacterial community was characterized in previous studies by using a 16S rRNA gene clone library and in situ hybridization with oligonucleotide probes. In the present study, a pair of PCR primers (P94-F and P93-R) were used to amplify a segment of the dissimilatory bisulfite reductase gene from DNA isolated from the community of bacteria associated with A. pompejana. The goal was to assess the presence and diversity of bacteria with the capacity to use sulfate as a terminal electron acceptor. A clone library of bisulfite reductase gene PCR products was constructed and characterized by restriction fragment and sequence analysis. Eleven clone families were identified. Two of the 11 clone families, SR1 and SR6, contained 82% of the clones. DNA sequence analysis of a clone from each family indicated that they are dissimilatory bisulfite reductase genes most similar to the dissimilatory bisulfite reductase genes of Desulfovibrio vulgaris, Desulfovibrio gigas, Desulfobacterium autotrophicum, and Desulfobacter latus. Similarities to the dissimilatory bisulfite reductases of Thermodesulfovibrio yellowstonii, the sulfide oxidizer Chromatium vinosum, the sulfur reducer Pyrobaculum islandicum, and the archaeal sulfate reducer Archaeoglobus fulgidus were lower. Phylogenetic analysis separated the clone families into groups that probably represent two genera of previously uncharacterized sulfate-reducing bacteria. The presence of dissimilatory bisulfite reductase genes is consistent with recent temperature and chemical measurements that documented a lack of dissolved oxygen in dwelling tubes of the worm. The diversity of dissimilatory bisulfite reductase genes in the bacterial community on the back of the worm suggests a prominent role for anaerobic sulfate-reducing bacteria in the ecology of A. pompejana.  (+info)

Pathogenicity of Ichthyophonus hoferi for laboratory-reared Pacific herring Clupea pallasi and its early appearance in wild Puget Sound herring. (2/662)

Laboratory-reared pathogen-free Pacific herring were exposed to pure cultures of Ichthyophonus hoferi, and reproduced the disease seen in naturally infected fish--thus fulfilling Koch's Postulates. Pathogen-free herring used in this study were reared from artificially spawned eggs incubated in filtered, UV-sterilized seawater, eliminating the variables associated with multiple infections, which are common in wild herring. Wild free-ranging herring were captured monthly from June through October by dip net from 'herring balls' located in the northern Puget Sound. I. hoferi infections were identified in these fish soon after metamorphoses, about 4 mo post-hatch. The prevalence increased from 5 to 6% in 0-yr fish to 24% in 1-yr-old fish to 50 to 70% in fish over 2 yr old, with no associated increase in mortality. The route of natural transmission to wild herring was not determined, but carnivorous fish became infected and died when they were experimentally fed tissues infected with the organism. In vitro culture of tissues was the most sensitive method for identifying both clinical and subclinical infections.  (+info)

Non-purulent meningoencephalomyelitis of a Pacific striped dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obliquidens). The first evidence of morbillivirus infection in a dolphin at the Pacific Ocean around Japan. (3/662)

On March 22, 1998, a mature, male, hyposthenic Pacific striped dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obliquidens) was stranded at Aoshima Beach in Miyazaki prefecture, Japan. A necropsy performed 14 hr after death revealed mild diffuse congestion and edema of the leptomeninges and mild pulmonary atelectasis. Histopathologically, non-purulent inflammatory were observed throughout the cerebrum, thalamus, midbrain, pons, medulla oblongata, and spinal cord. Hematoxylin and eosin stain revealed no viral inclusion bodies. Immunohistochemistry using a monoclonal antibody against nucleoprotein of canine distemper virus (CDV-NP) revealed a number of CDV-NP-positive granular deposits in the cytoplasm and cell processes of the degenerating or intact neurons. The present paper is a first report of spontaneously occurred morbillivirus infection in a dolphin at the Pacific Ocean around Japan.  (+info)

Diversity of nitrous oxide reductase (nosZ) genes in continental shelf sediments. (4/662)

Diversity of the nitrous oxide reductase (nosZ) gene was examined in sediments obtained from the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean continental shelves. Approximately 1,100 bp of the nosZ gene were amplified via PCR, using nosZ gene-specific primers. Thirty-seven unique copies of the nosZ gene from these marine environments were characterized, increasing the nosZ sequence database fourfold. The average DNA similarity for comparisons between all 49 variants of the nosZ gene was 64% +/- 10%. Alignment of the derived amino acid sequences confirmed the conservation of important structural motifs. A highly conserved region is proposed as the copper binding, catalytic site (CuZ) of the mature protein. Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated three major clusters of nosZ genes, with little overlap between environmental and culture-based groups. Finally, the two non-culture-based gene clusters generally corresponded to sampling location, implying that denitrifier communities may be restricted geographically.  (+info)

Methanococcus vulcanius sp. nov., a novel hyperthermophilic methanogen isolated from East Pacific Rise, and identification of Methanococcus sp. DSM 4213T as Methanococcus fervens sp. nov. (5/662)

An autotrophic, hyperthermophilic methanogen (M7T) was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal chimney sample collected on the East Pacific Rise at a depth of 2600 m. The coccoid-shaped cells are flagellated and exhibit a slight tumbling motility. The temperature range for growth at pH 6.5 was 49-89 degrees C, with optimum growth at 80 degrees C. The optimum pH for growth was 6.5, and the optimum NaCl concentration for growth was around 25 g l-1. The new isolate used H2 and CO2 as the only substrates for growth and methane production. Tungsten, selenium and yeast extract stimulated growth significantly. In the presence of CO2 and H2, the organism reduced elemental sulphur to hydrogen sulphide. Growth was inhibited by chloramphenicol and rifampicin, but not by ampicillin, kanamycin, penicillin and streptomycin. The G + C content of the genomic DNA was 31 mol%. As determined by 16S rDNA gene sequence analysis, this organism was closely related to Methanococcus jannaschii strain JAL-1T. However, despite the high percentage of similarity between their 16S rDNA sequences (97.1%), the DNA-DNA hybridization levels between these strains were less than 5%. On the basis of these observations and physiological traits, it is proposed that this organism should be placed in a new species, Methanococcus vulcanius. The type strain is M7T (= DSM 12094T). During the course of this study, the 16S rDNA sequence analysis placed Methanococcus sp. strain AG86T (= DSM 4213T) as a close relative of M. jannaschii strain JAL-1T. However, the weak level of DNA-DNA hybridization with this strain (< 10%) allowed the proposal that strain AG86T also constitutes a new species, Methanococcus fervens.  (+info)

Rapid identification of hyperthermophilic methanococci isolated from deep-sea hydrothermal vents. (6/662)

16S rDNAs amplified by PCR from 22 hyperthermophilic methanococci isolated from deep-sea hydrothermal vents were compared with those of the six type strains of the genus Methanococcus by RFLP analysis. Restriction fragments obtained with Haelli enabied four of the type species to be distinguished. Restrictions with HhaI, BstUI and MspI were necessary to differentiate Methanococcus jannaschii and Methanococcus fervens. The results indicate that the 16S rDNA PCR-RFLP method provides a rapid and reliable tool for the identification of newly isolated hyperthermophilic Methanococcus spp.  (+info)

Climate and satellite indicators to forecast Rift Valley fever epidemics in Kenya. (7/662)

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)

Epizootiology of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus in Pacific herring from the spawn-on-kelp fishery in Prince William Sound, Alaska, USA. (8/662)

Both the prevalence and tissue titer of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) increased in Pacific herring Clupea pallasi following their introduction into net pens (pounds) used in the closed pound spawn-on-kelp (SOK) fishery in Prince William Sound, Alaska. VHSV was also found in water samples from inside and outside the SOK pounds after herring had been confined for several days; however, water samples taken near wild free-ranging, spawning herring either failed to test positive or tested weakly positive for virus. Little or no virus was found in tissue samples from free-ranging, spawning herring captured from the vicinity of the pounds, nor did the prevalence of VHSV increase following spawning as it did in impounded herring. The data indicated that increased prevalences of VHSV were correlated with confinement of herring for the closed pound SOK fishery and that infection was spread within the pounds through waterborne exposure to virus particles originating from impounded fish. In addition, pounds containing predominantly young fish had higher prevalences of VHSV, suggesting that older fish may be partially immune, perhaps as a result of previous infection with the virus. Operation of SOK pounds during spawning seasons in which young herring predominate may amplify the disease and possibly exacerbate the population fluctuations observed in wild herring stocks.  (+info)

N-2 fixation has been understudied in marine environments outside of the subtropical and tropical oceans and where water temperatures are typically below 20-25 degrees C. We identified nifH phylotypes and measured N-2 fixation rates under ambient conditions ( maximum of 19 degrees C) in water collected 750 km off the coast of California in oligotrophic waters of the North Pacific Ocean ( 34 degrees N, 129 degrees W). Near- surface N-2 fixation rates averaged 0.25 +/- 0.05 nmol N L-1 d(-1) for 24 incubation bottles. Despite low ambient concentrations of iron (, 0.1 nmol L-1) and phosphorus (, 0.3 mu mol L-1), N-2 fixation rates were unaffected by iron and phosphorus amendments. Using reverse transcription - quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT- QPCR) methodology, we estimated transcript abundance and patterns of expression for several unicellular diazotrophs, including the group A phylotype, which showed the highest daily mRNA abundances. The N-2-fixing assemblage extended to 60-80 m depth, ...

Habitat selection and life history patterns were compared among three species of small cetaceans in the central North Pacific Ocean: Dalls porpoise (Phocoenoides dalli), northern right whale dolphin (Lissodelphis borealis) and Pacific white-sided dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obliquidens). Biological samples and fisheries data used for analysis of habitat preferences were obtained by observers monitoring Japanese high seas squid driftnet operations between 36$\sp\circ$N and 46$\sp\circ$N, and 152$\sp\circ$E and 150$\sp\circ$W during 1990 and 1991. Supplementary data used for analysis of Dalls porpoise life history were collected between 46$\sp\circ$N and 53$\sp\circ$N and 168$\sp\circ$E and 175$\sp\circ$E in the Japanese salmon mothership fishery from 1981 to 1987.The main objective was to determine if habitat partitioning mechanisms could be detected among the three marine mammal species. Two approaches were taken. First, reproductive patterns were compared, with special attention to calving ...
Cores from four Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) sites (310, 464, 465, and 466) and seismic-reflection profiles provide data that are used to interpret the geological evolution and paleoenvironments of Hess Rise, a prominent oceanic plateau in the central North Pacific Ocean. Hess Rise apparently formed in the Southern Hemisphere along the western flank of the Pacific-Farallon Ridge 110 to 100 m.y. B.P. Core stratigraphies and lithologies show the response of sedimentation to subsidence and northward movement of Hess Rise on the Pacific plate. Oceanic islands, which crowned Hess Rise during its early evolution, were eroded and subsequently subsided below sea level.. Major structural trends include three northwest-trending (∼327°) arms, or ridges, and an east-northeast-trending southern Hess Rise that parallels the Mendocino Fracture Zone (060°). Normal faults offset basement as much as 3,000 m along the southern edge and 1,500 m on the western flank of Hess Rise. Many faults were active ...
The environmental drivers of zooplankton variability are poorly explored for the central subtropical Pacific, where a direct bottom-up food-web connection is suggested by increasing trends in primary production and mesozooplankton biomass at station ALOHA (A Long-term Oligotrophic Habitat Assessment) over the past 20 years (1994-2013). Here we use generalized additive models (GAMs) to investigate how these trends relate to the major modes of North Pacific climate variability. A GAM based on monthly mean data explains 43% of the temporal variability in mesozooplankton biomass with significant influences from primary productivity (PP), sea surface temperature (SST), North Pacific Gyre Oscillation (NPGO), and El Nino. This result mainly reflects the seasonal plankton cycle at station ALOHA, in which increasing light and SST lead to enhanced nitrogen fixation, productivity, and zooplankton biomass during summertime. Based on annual mean data, GAMs for two variables suggest that PP and 3-4 year ...

The long-standing mystery of how mercury gets into open-ocean fish has been solved, claim University of Michigan researchers and their University of Hawaii colleagues. Their findings suggest that levels of the toxin in Pacific Ocean fish will likely rise in coming decades.Using isotopic measurement techniques developed at U-M, the researchers determined that up to 80 percent of the toxic form of mercury, called methylmercury, found in the tissues of deep-feeding North Pacific Ocean fish is produced deep in the ocean, most likely by bacteria clinging to sinking bits of organic matter. The study also confirmed that the mercury found in Pacific fish near Hawaii likely traveled through the air for thousands of miles before being deposited on the ocean surface in rainfall, said U-M environmental scientist Joel Blum. The North Pacific fisheries are downwind from rapidly industrializing nations such as China and India that are increasingly reliant on coal-burning power plants, a major source of mercury ...
Recent drought conditions in the North Pacific Ocean near Hawaii have caused a decrease in the strength of the carbon dioxide sink, according to a study published this week in the journal Nature. A team funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and led by scientists Dave Karl and Roger Lukas of the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the University of Hawaii used 15 years of time-series measurements to compare the precipitation, salinity and carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations at Station ALOHA, located in the Pacific Ocean approximately 100 kilometers north of Oahu. The study shows that a decrease in the tendency of the ocean to take up CO2 is due to an increase in the water s salinity, which is a direct result of the drought seen in much of the North Pacific Ocean over the past five years. Our study can be considered an oceanic analogue of the long standing atmospheric measurement program at the Mauna Loa Observatory, says Karl. The results from this study were ...

Magmatism associated with the Izu-Bonin arc in the Pacific Ocean initiated around 50 million years (Myr) ago, when the Pacific plate began subducting beneath the Philippine Sea plate. The compositions of volcanic rocks that have formed in the arc since about 42 Myr ago are distinctly different from those that formed earlier(1,2). Here we use new and previously published lead isotope data to determine the sources of the Izu-Bonin magmas. Although typical Pacific Ocean crust now flanks the Izu-Bonin trench(3-5), our results suggest that since 42 Myr ago, arc magmas have incorporated lead from subducted ocean crust that is compositionally distinct from Pacific Ocean crust but similar to that found in the Indian Ocean region. Yet, no such Indian-type ocean crust has been found in the northwestern Pacific so far. On the basis of plate tectonic reconstructions, we infer that such crust-probably generated by the now-extinct Izanaghi-Pacific spreading centre-must have been subducting at the Izu-Bonin ...

Pacific Ocean is the largest body of water in the world. The ocean covers about 66 million square miles (171 million square kilometers). That area represents over 45 percent of the total area of all the oceans and about one-third of Earths total surface area. Thousands of islands lie in the Pacific Ocean. They range from island nations, such as Japan and New Zealand, to the hundreds of small, scattered islands in the central and southern Pacific. The Pacific Ocean is a source of many natural resources, including seafood, petroleum, and minerals. The word pacific means peaceful. The ocean received this name from the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who sailed its waters for several months, driven by gentle winds. But the Pacific is often far from peaceful. Typhoons and hurricanes in the Pacific have wrecked fleets of ships and destroyed island cities. Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions deep in the sea have created destructive waves called tsunamis (pronounced tsoo NAH meez.) In the open ...

June 10, 2015 - Scientists have discovered the deepest high-temperature hydrothermal vent in the Pacific Ocean, located in the Gulf of Californias Pescadero Basin. It sits nearly 12,500 feet (3,800 meters) below the surface. Experts think the high temperatures may cook organic material in the overlying mud into petroleum-like products. Samples of the chimney stacks have the stench of diesel fuel, but creatures like the tubeworms shown in this footage are undeterred. They cling to rocks near carbonate chimneys that emerge from a flat, muddy seafloor. The footage was captured using a remotely operated vehicle.Click here to read more:Weird Animal World Discovered in Deepest Pacific Ocean VentsVideo courtesy Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute

The particulate scattering, bp, and backscattering, bbp, coefficients are determined by the concentration and physical properties of suspended particles in the ocean. They provide a simple description of the influence of these particles on the scattering of light within the water column. For the remote observation of ocean color, bbp along with the total absorption coefficient govern the amount and spectral qualities of light leaving the sea surface. However, for the construction and validation of ocean color models measurements of bbp are still lacking, especially at low chlorophyll a concentrations ([Chl]). Here, we examine the relationships between spectral bbp and bp vs. [Chl] along an 8000 km transect crossing the Case 1 waters of the eastern South Pacific Gyre. In these waters, over the entire range of [Chl] encountered (∼0.02-2 mg m3), both bbp and bp can be related to [Chl] by power functions (i.e. bp or bbp=α[Chl] β). Regression analyses are carried out to provide the parameters α ...
2] The climate system is always changing and this large scale variability in time and space of the ocean-atmosphere system can be characterized by different modes of variability. A mode of variability is a specific pattern that presents identifiable characteristics, a regional signature and a long-term oscillatory behavior. Oscillations of only one mode or combined modes of variability are useful to rationalize observed climate fluctuations. They are also increasingly helpful to understand regional climate.. [3] Two oceanic climate patterns dominate in the North Pacific: the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) [Mantua et al., 1997] and the recently identified North Pacific Gyre Oscillation (NPGO) [Di Lorenzo et al., 2008].

Scientists currently suspect extreme Northeastern Pacific Ocean heat led to the sudden appearance of Red Tide this week, a combination of warm and nutrient rich waters are well known to be the key ingredients for Red Tide formation. Ingredients that are increasingly prevalent due to human fossil fuel burning. Ingredients that are increasingly evident in the Northeastern Pacific. In short the burning of fossil fuels both warms the atmosphere and ocean even as it seeds the surface water with nitrogen. The warm water is a preferred environment for the microbes that form the Red Tide and the nitrogen - both as a constant rain from the sky due to fossil fuel emission and as effluent from streams due to farm runoff - essentially fertilizes the bloom ...

Tropical Pacific Ocean dynamics during the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA) and Little Ice Age (LIA) are poorly characterized due to lack of evidence from the eastern equatorial Pacific. We reconstructed sea surface temperature, El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) activity, and the tropical Pacific zonal gradient for the past millennium from Galápagos ocean sediments. We document a Mid-Millennium Shift (MMS) in ocean-atmosphere circulation ~1500-1650 CE, from a state with strong zonal gradient and dampened ENSO to one with weak gradient and amplified ENSO. The MMS coincided with deepest LIA cooling and was likely caused by southward shift of the Intertropical Convergence Zone. Peak MCA (900-1150 CE) was a warm period in the eastern Pacific, contradicting the paradigm of a persistent La Niña pattern. ...
Sea surface temperatures that are too warm in the eastern tropical Atlantic and Pacific oceans have long stymied coupled climate model depictions of our planet. A fresh look and update was undertaken by the international Eastern Tropical Oceans Synthesis Working Group, with a specific focus on comparing and contrasting the physical processes governing the two basins. Too few low clouds in models with free-running SSTs have long been associated with the SST errors, but a startling finding is that the cloud impact on the surface radiation budget is also unrealistically low in fixed-SST simulations (Figure 1, see also Medeiros 2012). While this squarely places the error in the atmospheric model components, a bright note is that most models capture the seasonal cycle in the lower tropospheric stability, the dominant control on the low cloud fraction, correctly. The causes for the SST errors are many, with the relative contributions differing between models, and no quick-fix solution presents itself. ...
Three marine, heterotrophic, aerobic, agarolytic, pigmented and gliding bacteria were isolated in June 2000 from a sea water sample that was collected in the Gulf of Peter the Great, Sea of Japan, and analysed in a polyphasic taxonomic study. 16S rDNA sequence analysis indicated that strains KMM 3664T, KMM 3669 and KMM 3915 were members of the family Flavobacteriaceae. Based on phenotypic, chemotaxonomic, genotypic and phylogenetic data, the isolates were classified in the genus Cellulophaga as members of a novel species, Cellulophaga pacifica sp. nov. The type strain is KMM 3664T (=JCM 11735T=LMG 21938T).
A team of researchers headed by Taylor Chapple, a UC Davis doctoral student, has made the first rigorous scientific estimate of White shark (Carcharodon carcharias) numbers in the northeast Pacific Ocean.. The researchers used small boats to reach spots in the Pacific Ocean where white whales congregate and lured them into photo range with a fake seal attached to a fishing line. Out of all the photographs taken, 321 photos showed dorsal fin edges. The dorsal fin edges of white sharks are jagged and each individual displays its own unique pattern. The photographs could therefore be used to identify individual sharks - 131 in total. The research team then entered this information into statistical models to estimate the number of sharks in the region. According to their estimate, there are 219 adult* and sub-adult** white sharks in this area. This low number was a real surprise, says Chapple. Its lower than we expected, and also substantially smaller than populations of other large marine ...

Population outbreaks of the corallivorous crown-of-thorns seastar (COTS), Acanthaster planci L., are among the most important biological disturbances of tropical coral reefs. Over the past 50 years, several devastating outbreaks have been documented around Guam, an island in the western Pacific Ocean. Previous analyses have shown that in the Pacific Ocean, COTS larval dispersal may be geographically restricted to certain regions. Here, we assess the genetic structure of Pacific COTS populations and compared samples from around Guam with a number of distant localities in the Pacific Ocean, and focused on determining the degree of genetic structure among populations previously considered to be isolated. Using microsatellites, we document substantial genetic structure between 14 localities from different geographical regions in the Pacific Ocean. Populations from the 14 locations sampled were found to be structured in three significantly differentiated groups: (1) all locations immediately around Guam,

Station ALOHA is located in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre 60 miles off of Oahu. Subtropical gyres are known to have a high diversity of zooplankton because of the low nutrients available in this region. High-nutrient sub-polar gyres, contrast with sub-tropical regions, as their zooplankton diversity is low due to increased biomass and intense competition. However, recovery of the MOCNESS and ring nets at Station ALOHA have provided a wide variety of zooplankton for our student scientists on board. We have been working hard all day to obtain information on the abundance and types of zooplankton found, requiring many hours of sorting through the cod ends of the nets (baskets that collect the seawater and zooplankton). Once collected, scientists must filter out the zooplankton by size and identify the species using microscopes. Some of the desired zooplankton species like nauplii (baby copepods) are so tiny that they have to be sorted with tweezers under a microscope. This is a tedious and ...
The abundance and composition of zooplankton down to 3000 m depth was studied in the subtropical and tropical latitudes across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans (35 °N–40 °S). Samples were collected from December 2010 to June 2011 during the Malaspina Circumnavigation Expedition. Usually, low abundances were observed with the highest values found in the North Pacific Ocean, Benguela, and off Mauritania, and the lowest in the South Pacific Ocean. No significant differences in abundance and zooplankton composition were found among oceans, with depth being consistently the most important factor affecting their distribution. Each depth strata were inhabited by distinct copepod assemblages, which significantly differed among the strata. The contribution of copepods to the zooplankton community increased with the depth although, as expected, their abundance strongly decreased. Among the copepods, 265 species were identified but 85% were rare and contributed less than 1% in abundance.
Changes in iron (Fe) bioavailability influence diatom physiology and community composition, and thus have a profound impact on primary productivity and ecosystem dynamics. Iron limitation of diatom growth rates has been demonstrated in both oceanic and coastal waters of the Northeast Pacific Ocean and is predicted to become more pervasive in future oceans. However, it is unclear how the strategies utilized by phytoplankton to cope with low Fe bioavailability and resupply differ across these ocean provinces. We investigated the response of diatom communities to variable Fe conditions through incubation experiments performed in the Fe mosaic of the California Upwelling Zone and along a natural Fe gradient in the Northeast Pacific Ocean. Through coupling gene expression of two dominant diatom taxa (Pseudo-nitzschia and Thalassiosira) with biological rate process measurements, we provide an in-depth examination of the physiological and molecular responses associated with varying Fe status.

The permeable rocks of the upper oceanic basement contain seawater-sourced fluids estimated to be ~ 2% of the global ocean volume. This represents a very large potential subsurface biosphere supported by chemosynthesis. Recent collection of high integrity samples of basement fluid from the sedimented young basaltic basement on the Juan de Fuca Ridge flanks, off the coasts of Vancouver Island (Canada) and Washington (USA), and subsequent chemical analyses permit numerical modeling of metabolic redox reaction energetics. Here, values of Gibbs free energy for potential chemolithotrophic net reactions were calculated in basement fluid and in zones where basement fluid and entrained seawater may mix; the energy yields are reported both on a per mole electrons transferred and on a per kg of basement fluid basis. In pure basement fluid, energy yields from the anaerobic respiration processes investigated are anemic, releasing , 0.3 J/kg basement fluid for all reactions except methane oxidation by ferric ...
Deep-sea subsurface habitats support novel and abundant microbial life. Recently, several studies have explored the phylogenetic diversity of microorganisms, mostly bacteria and archaea, in those environments. Viruses are key components of microbial assemblages, hence, the need to investigate them to better understand the deep biospheres ecology. In this study, we performed genomic analysis of 27 targeted flow cytometry-sorted viruses and 3 microbial cells from a one-milliliter hydrothermal fluid sample collected from IODP Hole U1362B CORK observatory at the Juan de Fuca Ridge (JFR) eastern flank. Preliminary results revealed a diverse viral community, as no two sorted viruses were identical to each other. The majority of predicted genes within the partially-sequenced viral genomes had no homology in databases. Phylogenetic analysis of the identified viral genes indicated that the viruses were most similar to large inducible lysogenic myoviruses. Additionally, the discovery of a cell from ...
In 2016, the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) had to meet three times to adopt tuna conservation measures for a single year. So the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) came to the IATTC annual meeting last week uncertain that agreement on measures to conserve tropical tuna in Eastern Pacific Ocean fisheries would be possible.. But this year, member nations negotiated with renewed urgency. They arrived at last weeks IATTC meeting just as this years total catch limit for FAD fishing on yellowfin and bigeye tuna was being reached. The implication was that many fleets would be forced to stop fishing for approximately five months - a situation that would have significant socioeconomic impact on many fleets fishing in the Eastern Pacific Ocean (EPO), as well as on the canners that depend on their supply.. Within this context, members were motivated to action. The result was the adoption of a solid set of tropical tuna conservation measures for 2018-2020.. ...
1. Introduction and scope. 44. This harvest strategy has been prepared in accordance with the Commissions Conservation and Management Measure on Establishing a Harvest Strategy for Key Fisheries and Stocks in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean.. 45. Although the provisions of this harvest strategy are expressed in terms of a single stock, they may be applied to multiple stocks as appropriate and as determined by the Northern Committee.. 2. Management objectives. 46. The management objectives are, first, to support thriving Pacific bluefin tuna fisheries across the Pacific Ocean while recognizing that the management objectives of the WCPFC are to maintain or restore the stock at levels capable of producing maximum sustainable yield, second, to maintain an equitable balance of fishing privileges among CCMs and, third, to seek cooperation with IATTC to find an equitable balance between the fisheries in the western and central Pacific Ocean (WCPO) and those in the eastern Pacific Ocean ...

In another possible sign of global warming, a tropical visitor has been found in the Pacific Ocean off Southern California.. Unusually warm fall weather and balmy ocean currents have created perfect conditions for the female Argonaut, or paper nautilus, a cephalopod rarely seen in the region.. The baseball-sized octopus was scooped up by fishermen off Los Angeles, and aquarium officials are fascinated, the Torrance Daily Breeze reported.. The fisherman who accidentally landed the octopus brought it to the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium this week.. The paper nautilus floats near the ocean surface, grasps small crustaceans and mollusks with its eight sucker-covered tentacles and gnaws on them with its tiny beak. Aquarium director Mike Schaadt said the creatures spend their lives caught up in a warm current, where they are often gobbled up by swordfish, sailfish, tuna or blue sharks.. ...

The National Marine Fisheries Service today finalized Endangered Species Act regulations to protect the southern population of green sturgeon from take and other harmful activities. The take prohibitions make it unlawful to kill or harm southern green sturgeon and could require changes in operations of dams and water diversions, commercial and recreational fisheries, dredging operations, and pesticide applications to protect the green sturgeon, an ancient and imperiled migratory fish species that has survived since the Jurassic era. | Center for Biological Diversity
The pacific ocean is the known to be the second most polluted ocean in our world. In some sections of the Pacific ocean, they have anoxic water. Basically, what anoxic water does is that it does not provide any oxygen. When there is no oxygen, there is no life. Current living marine animals that do live in anoxic water are rapidly dying because creatures cannot breathe. Some creatures that do live in this type of water are forced to migrate to other parts of the ocean. When they do migrate, there is a high chance that it can mess up the food chain. Anoxic water was created by all the pollutants. Some of the pollutants that may have factored to this creation is garbage waste, car emission, oil spills, fertilizers and toxic chemical waste. Currently the number one most polluted ocean would be the atlantic ocean. The atlantic has the most anoxic oceans compared to the pacific ocean ...

Sea Education Association (SEA) is conducting a research expedition to examine the effects of plastic marine debris in the ocean ecosystem in the North Pacific Ocean.
Monday, March 14, 2011, 01:40 (GMT + 9) Researchers who collected fish in the northern Pacific Ocean in 2008 said 35 per cent of the fish contained fragments of plastic in their stomachs. This marks the problematic effect that floating litter is having on marine wildlife, the researchers insist.. The studys findings will be presented by the Long Beach, California-based Algalita Marine Research Foundation and the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project.. Researchers found that the fish had ingested two pieces of plastic each on average. However, scientists who dissected hundreds of plankton-eating lanternfish found that these fish contained as many as 83 plastic fragments each, reports The Los Angeles Times.. The study then raises concerns regarding how garbage makes its way back into the human body as it works its way through the food chain.. Further, the findings highlight the increasing problem of floating marine debris gathered in vast, slow-moving ocean currents known as gyres, ...

More than three-quarters of the particulate pollution known as black carbon transported at high altitudes over the West Coast during spring is from Asian sources, according to a research team led by Professor V. Ramanathan at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego.. Though the transported black carbon, most of which is soot, is an extremely small component of air pollution at land surface levels, the phenomenon has a significant heating effect on the atmosphere at altitudes above two kilometers (6,562 feet). As the soot heats the atmosphere, however, it also dims the surface of the ocean by absorbing solar radiation, said Ramanathan, a climate scientist at Scripps, and Odelle Hadley, a graduate student at the Center for Atmospheric Sciences at Scripps. The two are lead authors of a research paper appearing in the March 14 issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research. The dual effect carries consequences for the Pacific Ocean region that drives much of Earths climate.. Thats the ...

CORVALLIS, Ore. - A new study has found a link between abrupt ocean warming at the end of the last ice age and the sudden onset of low-oxygen, or hypoxic conditions that led to vast marine dead zones.. Results of the study, which was funded by the National Science Foundation, are being published this week in the journal Nature.. Large-scale warming events about 14,700 and again 11,500 years ago occurred rapidly and triggered loss of oxygen in the North Pacific, raising concern that low-oxygen areas will expand again as the ocean warms in the future. Anomalous warmth occurring recently in the Northeastern Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea - dubbed The Blob - is of a scale similar to the events documented in the geologic record, the researchers say. If such warming is sustained, oxygen loss becomes more likely.. Although many scientists believe that a series of low-oxygen dead zones in the Pacific Ocean off Oregon and Washington during the last decade may be caused by ocean warming, evidence ...
In a way, Alaska existed in the Russian imagination long before it had a place on the Russian map. Russian fur hunters and traders in Siberia had heard for centuries from the Yupik, the coastal peoples of Siberia, about a Great Land that lay to the east across the water. In 1728, Vitus Bering, a Danish-born officer in the Russian Navy of Tsar Peter the Great, made the first of his two voyages in the North Pacific Ocean, attempting to confirm the existence of the land to the east. He sailed through the narrow waterway that separates the Seward Peninsula of Alaska from the Chukotsk Peninsula in Siberia. He came very close to the Alaskan coast, but bad weather prevented him from making an official sighting. In 1741, on his second voyage, Bering headed up an expedition of two ships, both of which sighted land at points between 55 degrees and 59 degrees north latitude. The first sighting took place on July 15, when the St. Paul, under the command of Berings second-in-command, Aleksei Chirikov, ...
Do not burn Styrofoam or polystyrene. It is made using benzene, a known human carcinogen. Benzene is released into the air if the polystyrene is burned.. Polystyrene makes up a significant part of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a slowly rotating collection of plastic in the centre of the North Pacific Ocean Gyre. There are 3.3 million pieces of plastic per square kilometer in the garbage patch. Over 8 billion kilograms of plastic ends up in our oceans each year, much of it polystyrene. These plastics dont biodegrade, but rather break into increasingly smaller pieces, which can cause harm or death to sea birds, fish, turtles and other marine life. Using as little polystyrene as possible, and recycling what you do acquire in a responsible manner, is one of the best things you can do for the health of our marine and terrestrial ecosystems. ...

Tropical Depression 11W appears as a huge and very cold area of clouds on infrared imagery from NASA. Infrared imagery basically provides temperature data of factors such as clouds and sea surface and theres quite a contrast between the two around Tropical Depression 11W.. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument that flies aboard NASAs Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Depression 11W (TD11W) on July 26 at 0347 UTC (11:47 p.m. EDT on July 25). It showed that within TD11W there was a large area of cloud-top temperatures that were colder than -63 Fahrenheit (-52 Celsius), which indicates strong convection (rapidly rising air that form thunderstorms) and suggests heavy rainfall. The image showed that the northern fringe of TD11W was just south of Andersen Air Force Base in the Western North Pacific Ocean.
