The supply of dense Antarctic water from the bottom of the ocean to the Atlantic has declined in recent years. However, a new study explains for the first time how this has stabilised since 2014, and slightly recovered. This is due to the variability in upstream dense waters, and has implications for the global climate.
On Friday 6 September a team of scientists and engineers, led by the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and University of Southampton, will set sail to revisit a deep, cold-water coral reef area 16 years after it was named a Marine Protected Area, to look for evidence the coral is regenerating.
Registration is now open for the National Oceanography Centre’s (NOC) Marine Autonomy and Technology Showcase (MATS) 2019, which will take place from 12–14 November at the NOC’s waterfront site in Southampton.
A collaborative project between the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), the University of Liverpool, the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research and Sun Yat-sen University in China, has been shortlisted for the Newton Prize 2019.
New research finds that a warming planet will also alter ocean waves along more than 50% of the world’s coastlines. This research, published in Nature Climate Change, has significant implications for coastal flooding and erosion.
The latest Autosub Long Range (ALR) vehicles being developed by the National Oceanography Centre have completed their first round of commissioning trials in the waters of Loch Ness, Scotland, marking a major milestone on their journey to active service.
A team of scientists from the University of Southampton, Bangor University and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) have discovered several artificially introduced species in the coastal waters of southern England, using a genetic technique that could help early detection of non-native species if adopted more widely.
