Baker named the group of deep-sea microbes collected in 2009 Helarchaeota—after the Norse goddess of the underworld.Officially speaking, Helarchaeota falls into a category called Candidatus—a designation reserved for microbes that haven’t earned a proper scientific name yet.“We are finding new kinds of life right and left,” says Karen Lloyd, a microbial ecologist at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
“It seems that this problem is ‘out of sight, out of mind’ because the environmental footprint of anchoring is not yet considered in official reporting of global human impacts on the marine ecosystem,” Dr Watson said.
NIWA scientists and Toitū Te Whenua Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) have used satellite technology to chart the Cook Islands’ seafloor in never-before-seen detail.The work was done as part of Seabed 2030 - a collaborative project to produce a definitive map of the world ocean floor by 2030.
To ensure the fishing surveys have the least impact possible, NIWA has been working with the University of Canterbury and Fisheries New Zealand to develop a non-invasive method of counting scallop populations.
“The rover helps us understand how much of that carbon might actually make its way into the sediments in the deep sea,” says MBARI marine biologist Crissy Huffard, who coauthored the new paper.
Under the old model, all the computers, servers, and other devices physically in an office building were on the same network and trusted each other.Once an attacker slipped by those perimeter defenses, remotely or by physically infiltrating an organization, the network would instantly grant them a lot of trust and freedom.
“Our goal is to find out how much sediment the harvester will take off along with the nodules,” says Matthias Haeckel, a marine biochemist at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel, Germany, who is coordinating the environmental review of GSR’s activities for a project called MiningImpact.
If your television is wall-mounted, and you hate those dangling HDMI cables running up from your Nintendo Switch, you might want to get some paint to match the cable raceway color to your wall’s.
“We use a lot of metaphors through mechanics,” says Josef Fares, founder of It Takes Two developer Hazelight Studios.Like aspirational long-term relationships, there’s a satisfying mix of old and new, tradition and novelty, expected and unexpected.But Cody and May are not in a successful long-term relationship.
It’s hundreds of miles from the nearest location that might be a source of food—a spot that would have enough sunlight to fuel an ecosystem, and be in the right position relative to the rock for known currents to supply these creatures with sustenance.
The researchers argue that this is a sign of struggle, preserved for millions of years in the fossil record: As a worm dragged a wriggling fish down into its lair, sediment would spill in to fill the void.

Adding indoor greenery with houseplants is one of Stanley's favorite ways to decorate a yoga space.Even silence can be deafening sometimes, so it could come in handy if you need some background noise to focus on your yoga.
Macroplastics like bags and bottles are breaking into microplastics (defined as bits less than 5 millimeters long) that swirl in the water column and sink down to the seafloor .Writing today in the journal Nature Communications, scientists from the National Oceanography Centre in the United Kingdom say they can account for that missing plastic, and in the process reveal the stunning scale of the microplastic pollution problem.
Elsewhere in the world’s oceans, much of the seafloor sediment is organic matter.There’s no upwelling and much less life at the surface, so much less organic matter is sinking to the seafloor to form sediment.
On Friday, September 13, 2019, Matthew Prince and Michelle Zatlyn, cofounders of the San Francisco internet security firm Cloudflare , stood on a slim marble balcony overlooking the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
Two International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) expeditions to the Hikurangi subduction zone off the east coast of the North Island, undertaken in 2017 and 2018, mark the first time scientists from around the world had studied and directly sampled rocks from the source region of slow slip events using ocean floor scientific drilling methods.
Working from a beachside shack on California's Monterey Bay , Nate Lindsey fired a stream of infrared laser pulses down a long fiber-optic cable extending onto the ocean floor.
To add that extra twist, Guthrie needed to find a way to spin faster than any tricker before him.It's a setup maneuver that trickers use to line up their bodies for more ambitious tricks, the way a gymnast might use handsprings .
And then, pow pow, Biles is in the air, a möbius loop of motion 10 feet off the ground at the apex, more than a second in the air, twisting around her head-to-toe axis three times and flipping over her side-to-side axis twice before, bang!
“These offshore CO2 storage facilities are probably a reasonable idea because the benefits of storing 1 million tons per year of carbon are larger than the effects of the leakage that may occur,” says Klaus Wallmann, professor of marine biogeochemistry at the GEOMAR Center for Ocean Research in Kiel, Germany, and an author of the report.
Across the field from the human workers distributing packages to the drives, a prototype robotic arm, named Robin, sits at the end of a conveyor belt. Amazon runs simulations to figure out how to keep their human workers comfortable when loading robots with packages.
For the first time the Whakatipu lake floor will be mapped to build a picture of the potential for local tsunami hazards in the future.
Greene and colleagues explored the Salish Sea with multibeam sonar sensors attached to the bottom of the research ship and seismic sensors on a small torpedo-like instrument towed 100 feet off the seafloor.
