In the past decade, leptospirosis has emerged as a major zoonosis with a worldwide distribution. The disease is caused by bacteria of the genus Leptospira. The western Indian Ocean includes more than one hundred tropical or subequatorial islands where leptospirosis constitutes a major public health problem. The clinical signs of the human disease are generally similar to an influenza-like syndrome, but acute forms of the disease are reported and mortality remains significant in this region. In animals, clinical forms are mainly asymptomatic but leptospirosis reduces the fertility of livestock, resulting in economic losses. The data available about human and animal leptospirosis in the western Indian Ocean islands are diverse: human leptospirosis has been extensively studied in Reunion Island, Mayotte, and the Seychelles, whereas the human clinical disease has never been described in Madagascar, Comoros, Mauritius, or Rodrigues, mainly because of the deficiency in appropriate medical and diagnostic

A number of factors were identified that contribute to the mixed (and sometimes disappointing) outcomes of private sector partnerships focused on ocean governance in the WIO region. These include that the private sector was often seen as merely a source of funding by other stakeholders, rather than recognising the full range of roles private sector actors could play in partnerships. Related to this, the importance of clearly outlining the role of the private sector within a given partnership was emphasised. Similarly, private sector interests were generally not sufficiently taken into account in the design and implementation of partnerships, making it difficult for private sector partners to justify the time and resources required for participation. It was further noted that partnerships often failed to achieve their potential impact owing to a lack of common goals and vision among the stakeholders involved. More generally, it was recognised that more should be done to ensure adequate ...
We investigated groundwater salinity as a key element in both the short and long-term evolution of the island of Grande Glorieuse. Firstly, we demonstrated that its evolution involved the integration of the whole range of variables forcing climate change. Piezometric surveys designed to sample the salinity of the subsoil waters of Grande Glorieuse could therefore provide an objective indicator of the environments evolution. Then, based on information from geoelectrical investigations, we proved that the spatial distribution of salinity is strongly dependent on the geological structure of the island. Structural heterogeneities can influence vulnerability of the island environment to salinization of the freshwater lens. Thus, characterization and monitoring of the freshwater lens will provide a reliable means of observing and managing anticipated climate changes on small islands.. Keywords: small coral islands, Grande Glorieuse, hydrogeology, ...
Previously, the standard way to tag large sharks involved attaching an electronic tag to them, which would only last weeks or months, but with Prebbles method, we are able to get the information from skin tissue over a longer period of time (years), and they can provide information over a short time period before sampling. The results from the study tell us that we have to deal with sharks at each site separately, to ensure proper long-term management.. This data can also help us with providing new approaches to conservation in these areas of the Western Indian Ocean and the Arabian Gulf, where we can provide greater protection from threats such as becoming by-catch in fishing boats, and for increasing their stability, which in turn brings eco-tourism to the area.. The study Limited latitudinal ranging of juvenile whale sharks in the Western Indian Ocean suggests the existence of regional management units (DOI: 10.3354/meps12667) is published in Marine Ecology Progress Series.. ...

The other water mass present over the shelf and slope is WW (Fig. 3). WW is freshening along the southwestern limb of the Ross Gyre and in the western Indian Ocean sector, while WW is becoming saltier in the northwestern Weddell Sea (Fig. 3E). Significant shoaling of WW is present in the eastern Indian Ocean sector and Amundsen Sea (Fig. 3F). Origins of the salinity changes in WW are likely to differ among regions, including changes to sea ice concentration caused by ice motion trends (15) and changes to sea ice concentration caused by increased accumulation of ice shelf meltwater (16).. The trends in Figs. 1 and 2 show a link between changes in the properties of ASBW and those of CDW over the continental slope. The CDW thermal structure may be broadly categorized into two regimes, shown schematically in Fig. 4: CDW (i) sloping upward or (ii) sloping downward toward the shelf break. The Weddell and Ross gyres are subject to a large-scale cyclonic wind stress, leading to strong easterly winds ...
Candida auris is an emerging multidrug-resistant yeast that can cause severe infections and spread easily between hospitalized patients, leading to outbreaks in hospital. Here, we report the first four cases of colonization and invasive infection with C. auris reported in the Indian Ocean region. All cases were observed in the French overseas Reunion Island, a very popular destination for European travelers. Three patients had urinary tract or skin colonization, and one had a fatal invasive infection. In three cases, including that of the infected patient, the yeast was not initially identified as C. auris , preventing specific hygiene measures to be implemented as suggested in the December 2016 clinical alert to European healthcare facilities. The infected patient likely acquired C. auris in the intensive care unit from the first colonized patient. This is the first case of C. auris infection and the first potential case of nosocomial transmission of the pathogen to be reported in the French overseas
Abstract. East Africa is highly affected by neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), which are projected to be exacerbated by climate change. Consequently, understanding what research has been conducted and what knowledge gaps remain regarding NTDs and climate change is crucial to informing public health interventions and climate change adaptation. We conducted a systematic scoping review to describe the extent, range, and nature of publications examining relationships between NTDs and climatic factors in East Africa. We collated all relevant English and French publications indexed in PubMed®, Web of Science™ Core Collection, and CAB Direct© databases published prior to 2019. Ninety-six publications were included for review. Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopia had high rates of publication, whereas countries in the Western Indian Ocean region were underrepresented. Most publications focused on schistosomiasis (n = 28, 29.2%), soil-transmitted helminthiases (n = 16, 16.7%), or human African trypanosomiasis (n =

Coral species are difficult to identify due to few distinct morphological features and high levels of phenotypic variation; furthermore, hybridization is thought to play an important role in coral evolution. The genus Pocillopora is one of the most abundant reef-building corals in the Pacific, yet species boundaries within this important group remain enigmatic, with conflicting interpretations of molecular data. To further examine the relationship between morphology and genetic variation, we examined in situ photographs, microscopic images, and molecular markers (ORF, CR, ITS-2) from 59 Pocillopora colonies representing a range of atypical morphologies thought to be rare or endemic to remote locations (the Hawaiian Archipelago, Johnston Atoll, Palmyra Atoll, and Howland Island). Additionally, we combined our data with previously published genetic data from the western Indian Ocean, Taiwan, the Great Barrier Reef, and the tropical east Pacific (n = 298) to examine phylogeographic relationships ...
The diazotrophic communities play an important role in sustaining primary productivity through adding new nitrogen to oligotrophic marine ecosystems. Yet, their composition in the oligotrophic Indian Ocean is poorly understood. Here, we report the first observation of phylogenetic diversity and distribution of diazotrophs in the Eastern Indian Ocean (EIO) surface water (to 200 m) during the pre-southwest monsoon period. Through high throughput sequencing of nifH genes, we identified diverse groups of diazotrophs in the EIO including both non-cyanobacterial and cyanobacterial phylotypes. Proteobacteria (mainly Alpha-, Beta-, and Gamma-proteobacteria) were the most diverse and abundant groups within all the diazotrophs, which accounted for more than 86.9% of the total sequences. Cyanobacteria were also retrieved, and they were dominated by the filamentous non-heterocystous cyanobacteria Trichodesmium spp. Other cyanobacteria such as unicellular diazotrophic cyanobacteria were detected ...

Just two days ago we landed after several hours of flights over Addis Ababa on Mahe, the main island of the Seychelles. Supposedly the territory of Seychelles comprises 100 well more or less large islands, which together form an area of ​​443 km ². How strewn lie the islands of the western Indian Ocean, spread over an ocean area of ​​over 400,000 km . The climate in the Seychelles is tropical with an average temperature of 27 degrees Celsius. The weather here is influenced by the monsoon, with a hot and humid season from November to March. The cool dry season lasts from May to October. We are now - at the end of October - just in the transitional phase there and hope not to be trampled in the rainy season.. For the flight to Bird Island we were picked up by a taxi from our resort in the south of Mahe and brought to the small airport of Mahe. The formalities were completed quickly. But there is still a problem with the luggage. They are allowed a maximum of 10kg per passenger. Ok, go ...

TUESDAY, April 28, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Bats and coronavirus have been evolving together for millions of years, researchers report.. In a new study, investigators compared different kinds of coronaviruses living in 36 bat species found on islands in the western Indian Ocean and coastal areas of the African nation of Mozambique.. The researchers discovered that 8% of all the bats they tested were carrying a coronavirus and that different groups of bats had their own unique strains of coronavirus.. We found that theres a deep evolutionary history between bats and coronaviruses, said study co-author Steve Goodman, a field biologist at Chicagos Field Museum.. Developing a better understanding of how coronaviruses evolved can help us build public health programs in the future, he explained in a museum news release.. The study was published April 23 in the journal Scientific Reports.. All animals have viruses that live inside them. Bats, and a number of other mammal groups, are natural ...
Molecular phylogeny indicates that ancestors of the quelea species might have originated in India and dispersed to Africa.[8][9] Based on more recent DNA-analysis, the red-headed quelea forms a clade with the cardinal quelea, and this clade is sister to the red-billed quelea Q. quelea. The genus Quelea belongs to the group of true weavers (subfamily Ploceinae), and is most related to Foudia, a genus of six or seven species that occur on the islands of the western Indian ocean. This clade is sister to the Asian species of the genus Ploceus. The following tree represents current insights in the relationships between the species of Quelea, and their closest relatives.[10]. ...
The diving petrels are seabirds in the bird order Procellariiformes. There are four very similar species all in the family Procellariidae and genus Pelecanoides (Lacépède, 1799), distinguished only by small differences in the coloration of their plumage and their bill construction. They are only found in the Southern Hemisphere. Diving petrels are auk-like small petrels of the southern oceans. The resemblances with the auks are due to convergent evolution, since both families feed by pursuit diving, although some researchers have in the past suggested that the similarities are due to relatedness. Among the Procellariiformes the diving petrels are the family most adapted to life in the sea rather than flying over it, and are generally found closer inshore than other families in the order. Diving petrels are plankton feeders, taking mostly crustacean prey such as krill, copepods and the amphipod Themisto gaudichaudii, also taking small fish and squid. They have several adaptations for obtaining ...

The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) affects climate and rainfall across the world, and most severely in nations surrounding the Indian Ocean1-4. The frequency and intensity of positive IOD events increased during the twentieth century5 and may continue to intensify in a warming world6. However, confidence in predictions of future IOD change is limited by known biases in IOD models7 and the lack of information on natural IOD variability before anthropogenic climate change. Here we use precisely dated and highly resolved coral records from the eastern equatorial Indian Ocean, where the signature of IOD variability is strong and unambiguous, to produce a semi-continuous reconstruction of IOD variability that covers five centuries of the last millennium. Our reconstruction demonstrates that extreme positive IOD events were rare before 1960. However, the most extreme event on record (1997) is not unprecedented, because at least one event that was approximately 27 to 42 per cent larger occurred naturally during the
A taxonomic study was carried out on strain CIC4N-9T, which was isolated from deep-sea water of the Indian Ocean. The bacterium was Gram-stain-negative, catalase- and oxidase-positive, rod-shaped and non-motile. Growth was observed at salinities of 0-9% and at temperatures of 4-41 °C. The isolate was able to degrade gelatin but not aesculin. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that strain CIC4N-9T belonged to the genus Pararhodobacter , with the highest sequence similarity to the only recognized species, Pararhodobacter aggregans D1-19T (96.9 %). The average nucleotide identity and estimated DNA-DNA hybridization values between strain CIC4N-9T and P. aggregans D1-19T were 80.4 and 23.0 %, respectively. The principal fatty acids were summed feature 8 (C18 : 1 ω7c and/or C18 : 1 ω6c), C16 : 0, C18 : 1ω7c 11-methyl, C18 : 0 and C17 : 0. The G+C content of the chromosomal DNA was 66.8 mol%. The sole respiratory quinone was determined to be Q-10. Phosphatidylcholine,
The seafloor is a unique environment, which allows insights into how geochemical processes affect the diversity of biological life. Among its diverse ecosystems are deep-sea brine pools - water bodies characterized by a unique combination of extreme conditions. The polyextremophiles that constitute the microbial assemblage of these deep hot brines have not been comprehensively studied. We report a comparative taxonomic analysis of the prokaryotic communities of the sediments directly below the Red Sea brine pools, namely, Atlantis II, Discovery, Chain Deep, and an adjacent brine-influenced site. Analyses of sediment samples and high-throughput pyrosequencing of PCR-amplified environmental 16S ribosomal RNA genes (16S rDNA) revealed that one sulfur (S)-rich Atlantis II and one nitrogen (N)-rich Discovery Deep section contained distinct microbial populations that differed from those found in the other sediment samples examined. Proteobacteria, Actinobacteria, Cyanobacteria, Deferribacteres, and ...

Introduction: Persistent albuminuria and glomerular filtration rate are considered as the gold standard for the diagnosis of Diabetic Nephropathy (DN). Methods: In this autopsy study, we evaluated data from a cohort of 67 patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. We determined the histological prevalence of DN irrespective of the clinical manifestations of renal disease. Patients were stratified by proteinuria and estimated glomerular filtration rate(eGFR). The glomerular, interstitial and vascular lesions were scored as per the established histopathologic classification for DN. Results: 55 of the 67 patients had clinical as well as histological lesions consistent with DN. 12 patients had histological lesions of DN at autopsy but no clinical evidence of proteinuria, including microalbuminuria in their lifetime.4 of these patients had maintained eGFR. There was no difference in the glomerular lesions in patients with normoalbuminuria regardless of the eGFR. However,50% of the patients with low eGFR ...

Affected by the El Nino event in the Pacific Ocean, Typhoon No.11 evolved in the vicinity of the date line, a more easterly genesis than usual. Sea surface temperatures (hereinafter referred to as SST) remain cooler than normal in the ocean surrounding the Philippines, due to the weaker ridge of the Pacific anticyclone to the west. The typhoon headed north along the western margin of the Pacific anticyclone, and struck the central part of the main island of Japan directly and caused heavy damages for example through floods in several localities. Typhoon No.12 appears to follow a similar course. This El Nino is expected to be one of the strongest events in recent history and may exert significant impacts across the globe. Besides the Pacific Ocean, we have also been focusing on the Indian Ocean state. As our team predicted, Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) seems to have occurred in the tropical Indian Ocean. IOD also brings about abnormal weather around the world including Japan. In this column, we ...
Figure 2: Indian Ocean main oceanographic features and phenomena.. A three-year, international review of the IndOOS authored by more than 60 scientific experts highlights the need for an enhanced observing network that can better meet societal challenges, and provide more reliable forecasts.. The core findings from this review have been presented in this research article, including the need for 1) chemical, biological, and ecosystem measurements alongside physical parameters; 2) expansion into the western tropics to improve understanding of the monsoon circulation; 3) better resolved upper-ocean processes to improve understanding of air-sea coupling and yield better sub-seasonal to seasonal predictions; and 4) expansion into key coastal regions and the deep ocean to better constrain the basin-wide energy budget. These goals will require new agreements and partnerships with and among Indian Ocean rim countries, creating opportunities for them to enhance their monitoring and forecasting capacity ...
A series of 34 shallow-penetration seismic-reflection profiles made across the Red Sea show that it developed in two main stages. Initially, an early or pre-Miocene uplift and lateral extension resulted in crustal thinning and eventual formation of the main Red Sea Basin. During Miocene time, the Red Sea was isolated from the Indian Ocean but possibly connected with the Mediterranean Sea, which, like the Red Sea, was an evaporite basin at that time. A distinct acoustic reflector (reflector S) in the Red Sea marks the top of the Miocene evaporite sequence and is correlative with reflector M in the Mediterranean, which is similarly identified with termination of evaporite conditions.. In Pliocene time, connection with the Indian Ocean was re-established, the opening to the Mediterranean was closed, and normal marine conditions were resumed in the Red Sea. Sea-floor spreading first started in Pliocene-Pleistocene time, and resulted in the formation of the axial zone of the Red Sea. ...

This work was carried out to understand the mechanisms leading to lofting and large-scale advection of aerosols over the Indian Ocean region due to interaction of the sea breeze with the northeast monsoon winds along the west coast of India. European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) wind fields for the months of February and March 1999 were analyzed at various times of day. Intense sea breeze activity was observed at 1200 UT (1730 local time) along the west coast of India with average intensity larger in March than in February. The sea breeze was seen to extend inland deeper in March than in February. Lofting of air observed as high as 800 hPa (approximately 2 km above sea level) could lead to entrainment of aerosols into the free troposphere and long-range transport. Upward motion of air was observed everywhere along the west coast of India (from 8 degrees to 20 degrees N), on average higher in March than in February, because of convergence between the sea breeze and the ...
In this study, three new species of macrocnemic zoantharians (Hexacorallia, Zoantharia) are described from localities in the Indo-Pacific Ocean including the Red Sea, the Maldives, Palau, and southern Japan: Antipathozoanthus obscurus sp. n., A. remengesaui sp. n., and A. cavernus sp. n. Although the genus Antipathozoanthus is currently restricted to species living on antipatharians, A. obscurus sp. n. is not associated with any living substrate and instead is found on coral reef carbonate substrate within narrow caves or cracks. The two new species that have association with antipatharians, A. remengesaui sp. n. and A. cavernus sp. n., can be distinguished by their relative coenenchyme development and the antipatharian species that each uses as substrate. Additionally, all new species described in this study have unique nuclear internal transcribed spacer region of ribosomal DNA (ITS-rDNA) sequences. Our results indicate that more phylogenetic studies focusing on increasing the numbers of species

Seychelles News Agency) - Seychelles Public Health Authority said that it is monitoring closely all imports of beef, poultry and other products from Brazil following a tainted meat scandal in the South American country.. Authorised imports from third countries will be scrutinized to confirm their origin and if needed the veterinary services will not issue any landing permit until they receive further information, a statement on Wednesday said.. An inquiry into the source of products imported into Seychelles, an archipelago in the western Indian Ocean, so far has indicated that they were not from any of the 21 facilities that have been identified by the Brazilian authorities as part of the tainted meat issue.. The Brazilian tainted meat scandal started in mid-March over allegations that major meat-packing businesses bribed inspectors to get health certificates and masked tainted meat as fit for consumption. It prompted bans from three of its key markets - China, Chile and Egypt.. According to ...
Status: CITES - Appendix II. IUCN 2008 - Critically Endangered (CR) B1ab(iii)c(iv); extinct on Round Island. The Rodrigues fruit bat is endemic to the island of Rodrigues in the Western Indian Ocean, and is one of the most endangered species of bats, in large part because of habitat loss. This species faces severe threats annually in the form of climatic disasters like tropical cyclones. During heavy storms many animals are blown out to sea where they die and habitats are destroyed, depriving the surviving bats of food and shelter. The Rodrigues fruit bat was on the brink of extinction in 1976 when Jersey Preservation Trust (now called Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust) brought 25 bats into captivity for a captive breeding project. Today the species is part of an international Species Survival Program (SSP) with 16 North American institutions participating. The species is making a dramatic recovery in its natural habitat on the island of Rodrigues with the present wild population being ...
Temperatures derived from Mg/Ca ratios of the calcite tests of planktonic foraminifera are distorted when samples are partially dissolved, and methods are required to quantify this source of inaccuracy. Here we compare a dissolution index (XDX), based on X-ray computed tomography scans, to Mg/Ca of four species of foraminifera ( G. ruber (white), G. sacculifer (without sac), N. dutertrei, and P. obliquiloculata) from core top sediments from the tropical Pacific, Atlantic, and western Indian Ocean. Deepwater calcite saturation values (Δ[CO 3 2−]) at the sites ranged from 55 to −23 μmol/kg. An estimate of ΔMg/Ca (reduction in Mg/Ca due to dissolution) was made for each sample. ΔMg/Ca decreased linearly from deepwater Δ[CO 3 2−] values of between 10 (±4) and 15 (±5) μmol/kg. These values are minimum estimates of the threshold below which Mg/Ca is affected by dissolution, as they are limited by assumptions made in calculating ΔMg/Ca. Sensitivity of Mg/Ca to Δ[CO 3 2−] was greatest ...

Overseas deployments by surface warships of Chinas PLA Navy are now a regular feature of the international maritime scene. Far less common, though, are out-of-area forays by Chinese submarines.. In October an Indian navy patrol spotted a PLA Navy Type 039A Yuan-class attack submarine operating in the Indian Ocean. The 78 -metre sub, which is reputedly equipped with an Air-Independent Propulsion System, was being shadowed by a Chinese Type 926 submarine support and rescue ship. This was the eighth confirmed deployment of a Chinese submarine to the Indian Ocean, and served to ratchet up long-standing security concerns in new Delhi, particularly as Indias own submarine programme, notwithstanding the recent well-publicised first deterrent patrol by the ballistic missile-armed, nuclear powered, Arihant , is suffering from serious delays.. The presence of the sub was the catalyst for joint surveillance operations by Indian and US Poseidon naval long range maritime patrol aircraft. According to ...
Total carbon dioxide (TCO2) and computations of partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2) had been examined in Northerneastern region of Indian Ocean. It exhibit seasonal and spatial variability. North-south gradients in the pCO2 levels were closely related to gradients in salinity caused by fresh water discharge received from rivers. Eddies observed in this region helped to elevate the nutrients availability and the biological controls by increasing the productivity. These phenomena elevated the carbon dioxide draw down during the fair seasons. Seasonal fluxes estimated from local wind speed and air-sea carbon dioxide difference indicate that during southwest monsoon, the northeastern Indian Ocean acts as a strong sink of carbon dioxide (-20.04 mmol m -2 d-1 ). Also during fall intermonsoon the area acts as a weak sink of carbon dioxide (-4.69 mmol m -2 d-1 ). During winter monsoon, this region behaves as a weak carbon dioxide source with an average sea to air flux of 4.77 mmol m-2 d-1. In the ...
Few places are as associated with small, lavish private island resorts as the Maldives, a beautiful scattering of sandy cays in the Indian Ocean. For the biggest and most elite names in hospitality, its de rigueur to have a Maldivian isle to call their own - Hilton, W Hotels, COMO and many more all have a showpiece property in this otherwise small and unassuming country.. Its no wonder that celebrities flock to the Maldives - recently, ultra-famous couple David and Victoria Beckham, along with their four children, opted to spend their Christmas break at One & Only Reethi Rah, a premiere resort just north of the capital island of Male.. Available for rent through Vladi Private Islands (link), the resort is an exclusive retreat with 130 villas and 12 stunning beaches.. However, even a holiday destination with that much star power can have a difficult year, and by all accounts, 2012 was a somewhat slow year for bookings. A new report in Hotel News Now shows that there was a slight - but still ...
Picture (above): Misty rain over the ocean. Credit: Foundry Co (Pixabay).. Many studies looking at the effect of global warming on sea surface salinity and global rainfall suggest climate change has intensified the global water cycle. Over the ocean this has led to wet regions of the world getting wetter and dry regions becoming drier.. These changes to the global water cycle over the ocean can be seen by observing sea surface salinity, with those regions of the oceans with lower salinity becoming fresher while salty regions grow saltier.. Separately from global warming, we know the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) also have a significant influence on the global water cycle and Australian rainfall in particular. The positive phase of ENSO and IOD generally makes Australia drier, while the negative phase of both makes it wetter. These effects can manifest in drought and flooding events over Australia.. However, the precise origin of the moisture that accompanies ...

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 ...
U.S. seabed exploration company Ocean Infinity said Friday it had offered to take the financial risk of a renewed search for the missing Malaysian airliner, as victims families urged the Malaysian government to agree to a private sector hunt for Flight 370s wreckage.. Malaysia, Australia and China suspended a nearly three-year search in the southern Indian Ocean in January after scouring 120,000 square kilometers (46,000 square miles) of remote seabed and failing to find any trace of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.. Ocean Infinity, based in Houston, Texas, said it remained hopeful that Malaysia would accept its offer to continue the search using a team of advanced, fast-moving deep-sea drones fitted with sonar equipment.. The terms of the offer are confidential, but I can … confirm that Ocean Infinity have offered to take on the economic risk of a renewed search, company spokesman Mark Antelme said in an email.. Were in a constructive dialogue with the relevant authorities and are hopeful ...

More than twenty years of active research on green turtle (Chelonia mydas) in the South West Indian Ocean (SWIO) have contributed to improve the knowledge of the species biology and ecology. However, lots of gaps still remain regarding the links between the main behavioral processes: alimentation, reproduction and migration, while shifts in these processes at individual scale have major impacts at population scale. On this basis, we have started implementing a spatially explicit individual-based model (IBM) to assess population dynamics of the green turtle in the SWIO. Our simulation experiment aims to unify, in a single model, alimentation, navigation and reproduction constraints as well as potential changes in foraging or breeding sites.

China has proposed to build an economic corridor with Myanmar to enhance trade investments, which Chinese experts say would allow access to the Indian Ocean for the country.. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi who visited Myanmar made the proposal yesterday.. The proposed corridor is regarded significant as the BCIM (Bangladesh, China, India, Myanmar) Economic Corridor initiated by China as part of its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has struggled to make progress.. The direct economic corridor, which would help Myanmars development plan and needs, will start in Chinas Yunnan Province, extend to the central Myanmar city of Mandalay and then east to Yangon and west to the Kyaukpyu special economic zone, forming a three-pillar giant cooperation pattern, Wang said.. The proposal will further develop China-Myanmar cooperation under the Belt and Road initiative.. The corridor, which connects both Myanmars core economic zone and its less-developed western part, could balance development across the ...
Greenpeace members meet with local artisanal fishermen from the Syndicat des Pecheurs, near Port Louis. Greenpeace is on an expedition in the Indian Ocean to expose overfishing and to highlight the problems associated with excessive tuna fishing, unsustainable or illegal fishing practices, the lack of law enforcement, and to listen to communities, learn about fishing practices and build alliances so that the Indian Ocean region can continue to provide fish and fishing jobs for future generations.
A total of 2169 samples from 21 tribal populations from different regions of India were scanned for the Y-chromosome Alu polymorphism. This study reports, for the first time, high frequencies (8-65%) of Y Alu polymorphic (YAP) insertion in northeast Indian tribes. All seven Jarawa samples from the Andaman and Nicobar islands had the YAP insertion, in conformity with an earlier study of Andaman Islanders. One isolated case with haplotype E* was found in Dungri Bhill, a western Indian population, while YAP insertion in northeast India and Andaman tribes was found in association with haplotype D* (M168, M174). YAP insertion frequencies reported in the mainland Indian populations are negligible, according to previous studies. Genetic drift may be the causative factor for the variable frequency of the YAP insertion in the mainland populations, while the founder effect may have resulted in the highest incidence of haplotype D among the Andaman Islanders. The results of YAP insertion and the evidence ...

Earths ocean covers more than 70% of our planets surface. There are five major ocean basins. The Pacific Ocean is the largest. Its so large that it covers a third of the Earths surface. The Atlantic Ocean is east of the Americas and west of Europe and Africa. The Indian Ocean is south of Asia and the Middle East and east of Africa. The Arctic Ocean is in the north polar region. The Southern Ocean surrounds Antarctica in the south polar region.. Seawater is salty. Anyone who has taken a gulp of water while swimming in the ocean knows that. The saltiness of the water is called salinity. The chemistry of the seawater includes more than salt. It depends on what become dissolved in it over time.. Ocean water is always moving. It moves around surface ocean currents in the upper 400 meters of the ocean. Water moves around the ocean by upwelling, a process that brings water from the deep ocean to shallow areas, as well as downwelling, a process that sends water from the surface to the deep ocean. ...

There are two oceans in Earth s polar regions: the Arctic Ocean, which occupies most of the north polar region, and the Southern Ocean, which surrounds the continent of Antarctica in the south polar region. Oceans in the polar regions are a bit different from the other oceans on Earth (the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Ocean). There is often sea ice at the surface of polar oceans, especially during the winter months. Both the Arctic Ocean and the Southern Ocean are homes to unique marine ecosystems that thrive in the cold conditions. Seawater from polar regions can be denser than seawater from other regions. This is because seawater in the polar oceans is often colder than other seawater. It can also become more saline than normal in the winter when sea ice freezes at the ocean surface. The salty part of the water does not freeze, making the remaining seawater saltier. Because it is denser, this seawater sinks to the bottom of the ocean. It travels in slow currents around the bottom of the world ...
