On the west coast of North America, an earthquake of enormous magnitude is to be expected in the near future. Along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, where an oceanic plate slides under the North American plate into the Earth’s mantle, an earthquake and related tsunami could hit the region on any given day. To better assess the hazard, researchers led by GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel are studying tectonic setting and seismic activity off Vancouver Island where the seismogenic zone is suspected to be.
Forum Energy Technologies (FET) secured a contract from the Memorial University of Newfoundland to supply an electric observation-class remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to its Fisheries and Marine Institute (MI), School of Ocean Technology.
NOAA Fisheries and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have announced a proposal to designate new areas of critical habitat to protect threatened and endangered green sea turtles. The agencies share jurisdiction for sea turtles, with the Fish and Wildlife Service overseeing their protection and recovery on nesting beaches and NOAA Fisheries providing oversight in the marine environment.
With its vast wilderness, diverse wildlife, stunning landscapes and rich cultural heritage, Alaska is a place of beauty and wonder. But did you know that the deep waters of Alaska hold their own secrets – from fascinating geological features like mud volcanoes and gas seeps to diverse and plentiful marine life, such as corals, sponges and fish? This summer, prepare to deepen your perspective and join us LIVE for an expedition to explore what lies below the ocean’s surface off Alaska.
NOAA’s National Hurricane Center — a division of the National Weather Service — has a new model to help produce hurricane forecasts this season. The Hurricane Analysis and Forecast System (HAFS) was put into operations on June 27 and will run alongside existing models for the 2023 season before replacing them as NOAA’s premier hurricane forecasting model.
The NOAA Climate Program Office (CPO) announces that its Fiscal Year 2024 grant competitions are now open.
Ocean science technology innovator RS Aqua has won funding to develop a new system to monitor the underwater environment. Collaborating with the University of Southampton and funded by Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, the MARLIN project will develop an underwater sensor that uses machine learning to identify harmful environmental activities and transmits information in real time to a web app.
TDI-Brooks announces the successful development and testing of a new instrument, the Auto-Minivane. The Auto-Minivane instrument is a self-contained, stand-alone miniature vane shear testing device that can be used in a 0.5 m vertical-stroke format by an onshore or offshore laboratory.
