Fresh water from sea ice delays the biological carbon pump by four months

During the summer months, Arctic sea ice drifts through Fram Strait into the Atlantic. Thanks to the melt water, a stable layer forms around the drifting ice above the salty sea water, producing significant effects on biological processes and marine organisms. This, in turn, has an effect on when carbon from the atmosphere is taken […]

Using Planet satellite data to monitor threats to wildlife and ecosystems

In remote parts of the world or where political conflicts reduce access to protected areas, researchers and conservationists need solutions to monitor activities that threaten wildlife and ecosystems. The Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS), an international conservation organization founded in 1858, focuses on maintaining biodiversity and conserving wildlife and ecosystems in protected areas and exceptional wilderness […]

Driftwood Flow Disruption Affects Marine Ecosystems •

Throughout history, rivers have carried a large amount of driftwood to the oceans. However, humans all over the world are increasingly interfering with this process. New research from Colorado State University (CSU) has found that disrupting the flow of driftwood from rivers to oceans can have a significant impact on marine ecosystems. “Dead trees, known […]

New Insights into Earth’s Ecosystems Through New Analysis

Voice of editors is a blog from the AGU Publications Department. The data collected by observations are essential to science. Models also make a fundamental contribution to science by helping us understand processes and predict future changes. However, observations and modeling have certain limitations. “Reanalysis” is a way of combining the two, and then building […]
