A new collaboration between the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and the University of Southampton is seeking to improve geophysical remote sensing of seafloor methane gas and hydrate through innovative laboratory experimental and theoretical studies.
Professor Philip Woodworth of the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Liverpool and Professor Roland Gehrels of Plymouth University asked when sea level rise started to accelerate – and narrowed it down to a point in the early 1900s.
Microscopic ocean algae called coccolithophores are providing clues about the impact of climate change both now and many millions of years ago. The study found that their response to environmental change varies between species, in terms of how quickly they grow.
To understand the risk of coastal flooding, you need to understand the tides. This was a key message of a study by researchers based at the National Oceanography Centre in Liverpool and Southampton, which was short-listed for the recent Lloyd’s Science of Risk Prize.
Research into a process that is threatening to wipe out coral reefs, by a scientist at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, has been recognised with a prestigious award worth 1.29 million euros.
