Kongsberg Discovery Echo Sounder Upgrade Opens New Frontiers in Ocean Science

The EK80 product family is part of Kongsberg Discovery’s portfolio of monitoring and measuring tools and is used for all types of ocean research. The product family has historically been used primarily for biomass assessments, but the instruments are seeing increased adoption for other biological, physical, and chemical oceanography applications. An EK80 vessel-mounted system typically comprises six transducers operating at different sound frequency spectra, matched with transceivers, software, and planning tools. The transducers are calibrated to give highly accurate, quantitative metric values of application targets.

Much of the Nord Stream Gas Remained in the Sea Following 2022 Pipeline Explosion

At the end of September 2022, the Nord Stream gas pipeline on the bottom of the Baltic Sea exploded east of Bornholm and was one of the largest unnatural methane gas emissions ever. The methane gas from the pipeline created large bubbles at the water surface and measurements showed elevated levels of methane in the atmosphere.

Above-Average Summer Dead Zone in the Gulf of Mexico

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is forecasting an above-average summer dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico, covering approximately 5,827 square miles—an area roughly the size of Connecticut. The dead zone, or hypoxic area, is an area of low oxygen that can kill fish and other marine life. It occurs every summer and is primarily a result of excess nutrient pollution from human activities in cities and farm areas throughout the Mississippi-Atchafalaya watershed. The average dead zone measurement is 5,205 square miles over the 37-year period of record.
