A key piece of the carbon cycle puzzle has been solved by scientists from the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), with the discovery of the mechanism underpinning more efficient carbon transfer in low oxygen zones.
The impact of a subsea oil well blow-out in the Faroe-Shetland Channel on the diverse deep-sea life there partly depends on the depth and when it happens, according to new research by National Oceanography Centre (NOC) scientists.
Three business incubation centres across the UK – including one in the NOC’s Innovation Centre – have been awarded £150,000 from the UK Space Agency.
The UK Space Agency (UKSA) is working to deliver world-class science innovation support, in line with the government’s Industrial Strategy, which emphasises the importance of science, innovation and skills.
A year after becoming an Associate Member of the National Oceanography Centre’s (NOC) Marine Robotics Innovation Centre, global provider of underwater positioning, communications and custom engineering solutions, Sonardyne International Ltd. has upgraded its membership to become a full Partner.
The NOC’s Autosub Long Range is joining ocean scientists from the University of Southampton and British Antarctic Survey (BAS) on an expedition to study some of the deepest and coldest abyssal ocean waters on earth – known as Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) – and how they affect climate change.
A NOC-led study, published in Nature Communications, finds that with just 15 more years of current emissions, over half of the world’s ocean will be exposed to more than one source of stress, affecting everything from the tiniest plants to the mightiest whales. By 2050, that figure rises to around 86% of the ocean.
Scientists and technicians from the National Oceanography Centre are spending six weeks at sea gathering data from the deep ocean that provide important information about our varying climate. This year they will for the first time be retrieving data on the transport of carbon dioxide by the ocean.
