Vertical movement of ocean waters

May 28, 2018 - 1:08 PM - by Fermer05
The waters of lakes, seas and oceans of the northern hemisphere rotate counterclockwise, while the waters of the southern hemisphere rotate clockwise, forming giant whirlpools. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocean_gyre

As you know, everything that rotates, including whirlpools, has the property of a gyro (yule) to maintain the vertical position of the axis in space, regardless of the rotation of the Earth.

If you look at the Earth from the side of the Sun, the whirlpools, rotating together with the Earth, overturn, due to which the whirlpools precess, and as a result there is a vertical movement of oceanic waters. http://goo.gl/AM5g1s

PhD positions (trace metal biogeochemistry) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

May 06, 2018 - 8:37 AM - by renjithvishnu
Graduate student (PhD) positions available in trace metal biogeochemistry at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences

Research projects:

1) Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) in the Northern Gulf of Alaska (NGA)
The Northern Gulf of Alaska is a subpolar biome characterized by enhanced productivity and high environmental variability. This project is part of the new NGA LTER site and focuses on understanding the processes that control macro- and micro-nutrient dynamics and their role on the pronounced spring bloom and the regions of sustained summer primary production. Observations will take place during 3 yearly cruises from spring to fall.

The student will be responsible for collecting and processing... [Read More]

A new ocean current off South Africa’s coast

Apr 10, 2018 - 6:53 AM - by renjithvishnu
A new coastal current: the Southwest MAdagascar Coastal Current (SMACC) has been uncovered by researchers at the University of the Cape Town, South Africa.The lead author of the paper (in the Geophysical Research Letters) announcing the discovery is Mr.Heriniaina Juliano Dani Ramanantsoa, who coincidentally hails from Madagascar and is a PhD student at the Department of Oceanography, University of the Cape Town.

SMACC flows along the southwestern coast of Madagascar toward the south. The SMACC is a relatively shallow (<300 m) and narrow (<100 km wide) warm and salty surface current, which is more intense in summer and reduced in winter. The Southwest MAdagascar Coastal Current has a downstream impact on the upwelling system at the south of Madagascar which is a... [Read More]
