Trash in the deep sea: Bringing a hidden problem to light
 
04:13
Using advanced technologies, such as remotely operated vehicles, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) is helping to uncover the far-reaching presence of man-made debris in deep ocean ecosystems. Over the past 25 years, we have recorded evidence of debris up to 13,000 feet deep and 300 miles offshore from waters off of central and southern California, the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, and the Gulf of California. We've seen trash everywhere we've looked. In the greater Monterey Bay region, the majority of debris items were single-use, recyclable items. Plastic shopping bags and aluminum beverage cans were most common overall. Surprisingly, plastic and metal were found relatively more frequently at deeper depths, suggesting that the extent of marine debris on the seafloor may be far greater than known to date. MBARI researchers hope that this study will increase awareness of the growing problem of man-made debris in all parts of the ocean. It is far too expensive and impractical to locate and retrieve debris after it reaches the deep seafloor. The best solution is to reduce our reliance upon single-use, throw away items. Recycling, reusing, and properly disposing of trash items will help to keep litter from ever entering the ocean.

Science View - Ichthyosaur Research Unlocks the Secrets of the Earth's Environmental Phenomena
 
28:01
Research in paleontology has been making remarkable developments in the recent years. The research on ichthyosaurs, the creature that dominated the sea during the dinosaur era, is especially making rapid progress. Ichthyosaurs are reptiles that moved their habitats into the sea 248 million years ago and evolved into fish-like creatures. At the forefront of its research is Dr. Ryosuke Motani from the University of California, Davis. He has joined up with the Peking University to form an ichthyosaur excavation team, bringing results from the newly found fossils in China. This episode is based on an up close interview with the paleobiologist Dr. Ryosuke Motani to learn about his methods of solving the mysteries behind the evolution of ichthyosaurs.

Deep-sea octopus invests in future: Longest brooding period ever recorded
 
03:06
Researchers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have observed a deep-sea octopus brooding its eggs for four and one half years—much longer than any other known animal. Throughout this time, the female kept the eggs clean and guarded them from predators. This amazing feat represents an evolutionary balancing act between the benefits to the young octopuses of having plenty of time to develop within their eggs, and their mother’s ability to survive for years with little or no food. Although long-term observations of deep-sea animals are rare, the researchers propose that extended brooding periods may be common in the deep sea. Such extended life stages would need to be taken into account in assessing the effects of human activities on deep-sea animals. In any case, this strategy has apparently worked for Graneledone boreopacifica—it is one of the most common deep-sea octopuses in the Northeastern Pacific.

Where do microplastics go in the ocean?
 
00:34
Where do tiny bits of plastic go when they are flushed out to sea? Previous research finds most plastic ends up in the subtropical ocean gyres circling the mid-latitudes of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. These rotating currents encircle large areas sometimes called “garbage patches” because they are the destination for so much persistent floating junk. A new modeling study in AGU’s Journal of Geographical Research: Oceans finds more microplastic may be reaching Arctic waters than previously thought. The new study looked at what oceanographers know about ocean currents to ask which types of current are most influential on how microplastics drift. Generally defined as plastic bits smaller than 5 millimeters, this durable, non-biodegradable flotsam ranges from the size of polystyrene beads to microscopic nanoparticles small enough to squeeze through cell membranes. They can persist in surface waters for years. Microplastics are unhealthy for animals to ingest, causing physical and metabolic damage to sea life, from tiny plankton to whales. Microplastics can also spread chemical pollutants and living organisms carried on their surfaces. The new simulations of plastics from the millimeter to meter scale show wind-driven surface currents called Ekman currents mostly determine the fate of microplastics in the subtropical gyres. But the new research also finds ocean waves push microplastics toward the poles. The new research shows Stokes drift, an element of fluid dynamics theory that describes the influence of waves, may have led to underestimation of microplastic pollution in the Arctic in previous studies. Stokes drift is not always included in ocean models and is currently not observed from satellites. Learn more: Victor Onink, David Wichmann, Philippe Delandmeter and Erik van Sebille (2019).

Pelagic parenting: A deep-sea squid broods its eggs
 
02:56
Reproduction is one of the many challenges faced by deep-sea animals. In recent years, submersibles have allowed scientists to explore the lives of deep-sea animals in ways that were not possible before. One of the many exciting discoveries was that a mother of the deep-sea squid species Gonatus onyx broods her eggs by holding them in her arms, a behavior that had never been previously reported for squids. This shocking discovery was the first time scientists had evidence of parental care in squids. In 2012, a team of researchers led by Stephanie Bush, reported finding another species of deep-sea squid that broods eggs, Bathyteuthis berryi, suggesting that this form of parental care may be a common solution to a reproductive problem for deep-sea squids.

On an expedition in the Gulf of California, MBARI researchers discovered a surprising number of deep-sea squid carcasses on the ocean floor. The squid have a fascinating life history, but their story doesn't end when they die. They become food for hungry scavengers and might change the rhythm of life in the deep sea. Egg sheets were up to 2.5 m (over 8 feet) long. The Gulf of California lies between mainland Mexico and Baja. MBARI researchers conducted expeditions there in 2003, 2012 and 2015.

even my body now lets the light through by Misha Penton
 
04:45
This brief audio work is a voice setting of poetics exploring the slippery and liminal properties of the voice and breath. The voice is an elemental, like water: flowing, carving out, not-able-to-be-touched, yet deeply embodied—a felt resonance, an imprint, impermanent–permeable, with an inherent washing–over quality and a cathartic pouring power. This work is published as a supplement to the Performance Research issue 21.2 On Sea/At Sea Issue editors: Sam Trubridge and Richard Gough Publication date: 30 April 2016 On/At Sea focuses on the sea as an unbounded, unfixed territory with no recognizable performance cartographies, asking the question – how often does performance go to sea? This is both a literal and poetic question, thus inquiring about specific nautical performances ‘on the sea’, as well as the poetic state of being ‘at sea’, that is, within a fluid, unfixed, or liquid condition. Does the need for survival in this place render artistic, performative expression as something superfluous and trivial? How can a performance culture be shaped by this liquid, ever-moving terrain? Is perhaps, the sea a place where performance is suspended momentarily? We are seldom actually ON the sea and being AT sea is a giving over to the elements, casting off from attachments and moorings.

While there is plenty of quality research out there, every basket has some bad apples. These are the 25 most ridiculous research papers ever published. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-ridiculous-research-papers-published/ Here's a preview: Several researchers at Shiseido Research Denter in Yokohama came out with a study concluding that people who think they have foot odor do, and people who don't, don't. The Oregon State Health Division and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine pioneered a study about salmonella excretions in joy riding pigs John Mack of Harvard Medical School and David Jacobs of Temple University performed a study which concluded that people who believe they were kidnapped by aliens from outer space probably were. Several researchers recently performed a very official study of constipation among US military service members. The International Journal of Neuroscience released a report title "The Effects of Unilateral Forced Nostril Breathing on Cognition". In other words, whether breathing through one nostril makes you smarter or not. The Institute of Food Research in the UK performed a groundbreaking analysis of soggy breakfast cereal entitled "A Study on the Effects of Water Content on the Compaction Behaviour of Breakfast Cereal Flakes. Several researchers at the University of Bergen, Norway released a report with the title "Effect of Ale, Garlic, and Soured Cream on the Appetite of Leeches." Aston University in England released a report proving that toast tends to fall on the buttered side. It was published in the European Journal of Physics The University Hospital of Zurich, the Kansai Medical University in Osaka, and the Neuroscience Technology Research Center in Prague performed a massively overfunded study of people's brainwaves while chewing on different flavors of bubblegum The State University of New York at Albany released a report entitled "Chicken Plucking as Measure of Tornado Wind Speed. In 1996 there was a research paper published in the Journal of Analytical Psychology with the title "Farting as a defence against unspeakable dread". The University of Bristol performed a study that was published in Nature Magazine on the optimal way to dunk a biscuit The University of East Anglia published a report calculating the best way to make a teapot spout that does not drip. Dalhousie University released a research report entitle "The Comparative Palatability of Some Dry-Season Tadpoles from Costa Rica" Cornell University and the University of Illinois published a modest report titled "Unskilled and Unaware of it: How Difficulties in Recognizing One's Own Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments McGill University in Canada made waves with their impactful medical report "Injuries Due to Falling Coconuts" The University of Massachusetts came out with a partial explanation of the shower-curtain effect, or why the shower curtain tends to billow inwards while a shower is being taken.

Parting the waters, Part 1: The physics of a land bridge
 
01:24
Sustained winds can cause an event known as a wind setdown, in which water levels are temporarily lowered (see http://www2.ucar.edu/news/parting-waters-computer-modeling-applies-physics-red-sea-escape-route ). This animation shows how a strong east wind over the Nile Delta could have pushed water back into ancient waterways after blowing for about nine hours, exposing mud flats and possibly providing an overland escape route similar to the biblical account of the Red Sea parting. The animation is based on results from computer modeling that arose out of a master's thesis in atmospheric and oceanic sciences by NCAR researcher Carl Drews. The research is published in the online journal, PLoS ONE and is part of Drews's larger research project with oceanographer Weiqing Han (University of Colorado) into the impacts of winds on water depths, including the extent to which Pacific Ocean typhoons can drive storm surges. By pinpointing a possible site south of the Mediterranean Sea for a potential Red Sea crossing, the study also could be of benefit to experts seeking to research whether such an event ever took place. (Visualization by Tim Scheitlin and Ryan McVeigh, NCAR; based on model simulations.) Carl Drews talks about this research here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itox6Zn_1G0

Baby oysters, the canary of the oceans: Andrew Dickson at TEDxAmericasFinestCity
 
14:50
Andrew Dickson is a leading expert in seawater pH, whose research activities are focused on improving our understanding of the carbon dioxide system in seawater, with a current emphasis on the effects of ocean acidification. He's currently on The Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE Council; a $1.5 million competition that challenges individuals and teams around the world to build and demonstrate advanced pH sensor technology that will allow us to stem the tide of this chemical imbalance, and return our oceans and sea life to a state of prolonged health. Since the 1990s, Andrew has played a key role in improving measurements of oceanic CO2 system properties, and leads a program to prepare, certify, and distribute CO2 reference materials to the world's marine scientists. Dickson's research focuses on improving the understanding of the chemistry of carbon dioxide in seawater and upper-ocean biogeochemistry, with a current emphasis on the effects of ocean acidification. He has played a key role in developing quality control standards for oceanic carbon dioxide measurements and leads a program to prepare, certify, and distribute CO2 reference materials to the world's marine scientists. He has been affiliated with Scripps since 1983. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, on May 14, 1953, Dickson received a B.Sc. degree from the University of Liverpool in 1974, and a Ph.D. from there in 1978. Prior to joining Scripps, Dickson served as a postdoctoral research associate at the Marine Biological Association Laboratory in Plymouth, England and as a postdoctoral associate in the University of Florida, Department of Chemistry. He joined Scripps as an assistant research chemist in 1983, became an associate research chemist in 1991 and a professor-in-residence of marine chemistry in 2006. Dickson's laboratory participates in repeat hydrographic cruises sponsored by the Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) project of the World Climate Research Programme. He is also part of a multi-institutional collaboration to study the dissolution of biogenic calcium carbonate that is linked to observed acidification of the world's oceans. Dickson is a member of the OceanSITES Data Management Team and the PICES Section on Carbon and Climate. He has served as editor or as an editorial board member of several journals, including most recently Journal of Geophysical Research, Oceans. Dickson lives in San Diego with his family. About TEDx In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

Stem cell effects of consuming sea buckthorn extract - Video Abstract ID 186893
 
03:04
Video abstract of original research paper “Rapid and selective mobilization of specific stem cell types after consumption of a polyphenol-rich extract from sea buckthorn berries (Hippophae) in healthy human subjects” published in the open access journal Clinical Interventions in Aging by Drapeau C, Benson KF, Jensen GS. Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a proanthocyanidin-rich extract of sea buckthorn berry (SBB-PE) on the numbers of various types of adult stem cells in the blood circulation of healthy human subjects. Study design and methods: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over trial was conducted in 12 healthy subjects. Blood samples were taken immediately before and at 1 and 2 hours after consuming either placebo or 500 mg SBB-PE. Whole blood was used for immunophenotyping and flow cytometry to quantify the numbers of CD45dim CD34+ CD309+ and CD45dim CD34+ CD309- stem cells, CD45- CD31+ CD309+ endothelial stem cells, and CD45- CD90+ mesenchymal stem cells. Results: Consumption of SBB-PE was associated with a rapid and highly selective mobilization of CD45dim CD34+ CD309- progenitor stem cells, CD45- CD31+ CD309+ endothelial stem cells, and CD45- CD90+ lymphocytoid mesenchymal stem cells. In contrast, only minor effects were seen for CD45dim CD34+ CD309+ pluripotential stem cells. Conclusion: Consumption of SBB-PE resulted in selective mobilization of stem cell types involved in regenerative and reparative functions. These data may contribute to the understanding of the traditional uses of SBB for preventive health, regenerative health, and postponing the aging process.

26:16 is where George Howard comes on the show I recommend fast forwarding. Leave a comment and say where you're from, curious to know about you who are listening. I too find this new data fascinating. I am from San Francisco, California, USA. ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| A fantastic talk between Seven Ages Audio Journal and scientist George Howard about the Younger Dryas extraterrestrial impact hypothesis. George Howard was mentioned by Randall Carlson. He is part of the Comet Research Group |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| Excerpt from website: "This week on the Seven Ages Audio Journal, after sharing a number of emails from our listeners, we shift our focus to one of the most unusual periods of great climate change in the ancient world. Known as the Younger Dryas, the event marked a sudden cooling period beginning approximately 12,900 years BP, as our planet was exiting the last ice age. Joining us to discuss the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis is independent researcher George Howard. An avocational scientist and co-founder and CEO of Restoration Systems, Howard graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1999. He worked in Washington DC from 1990 to 1996 as a legislative staffer, where he was responsible for environmental public policy, particularly wetlands, water quality and species issues. In 2001, Howard was contacted by William Topping, Ph.D. and Richard Firestone, Ph.D., which led to work with a team of multidisciplinary researchers that began to refine the nature and evidence for a hypothetical impact event associated with the Younger Dryas. A series of controversial peer-reviewed papers and presentations produced since that time document the joint efforts of what has come to be known as the Comet Research Group. Howard spends time with Seven Ages for a wide-ranging discussion about what the latest science says in support of this controversial theory, as well as what its implications may be." ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| Source website: https://sevenages.org/podcasts/seven-ages-audio-journal-episode-nine-riddle-younger-dryas/ ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| Links to some articles talked about on the show: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-16958-2

Study reveals new Antarctic process contributing to sea level rise & climate change
 
01:41
A new IMAS-led study has revealed a previously undocumented process where melting glacial ice sheets change the ocean in a way that further accelerates the rate of ice melt and sea level rise. Led by IMAS PhD student Alessandro Silvano and published in the journal Science Advances, the research found that glacial meltwater makes the ocean’s surface layer less salty and more buoyant, preventing deep mixing in winter and allowing warm water at depth to retain its heat and further melt glaciers from below.
Sea Ice Yearly Minimum 1979-2010
 
00:35
The continued significant reduction in the extent of the summer sea ice cover is a dramatic illustration of the pronounced impact increased global temperatures are having on the Arctic regions. There has also been a significant reduction in the relative amount of older, thicker ice. Satellite-based passive microwave images of the sea ice cover have provided a reliable tool for continuously monitoring changes in the extent of the Arctic ice cover since 1979. The ice parameters derived from satellite ice concentration data that are most relevant to climate change studies are sea ice extent and ice area. This visualization shows ice extent in the background and ice area in the foreground. Ice extent is defined here as the integrated sum of the areas of data elements (pixels) with at least 15% ice concentration while ice area is the integrated sum of the products of the area of each pixel and the corresponding ice concentration. Ice extent provides information about how far south (or north) the ice extends in winter and how far north (or south) it retreats toward the continent in the summer while the ice area provides the total area actually covered by sea ice which is useful for estimating the total volume and therefore mass, given the average ice thickness. For more information about these ice datasets, see The Journal of Geophysical Research VOL. 113, C02S07, doi:10.1029/2007JC004257, 2008 In 2007, Arctic summer sea ice reached its lowest extent on record - nearly 25% less than the previous low set in 2005. At the end of each summer, the sea ice cover reaches its minimum extent and what is left is what is called the perennial ice cover which consists mainly of thick multi-year ice flows. The area of the perennial ice has been steadily decreasing since the satellite record began in 1979, at a rate of about 10% per decade. This visualization shows the annual Arctic sea ice minimum from 1979 to 2010. A graph is overlaid that shows the area in million square kilometers for each year's minimum day. The '1979','2007', and '2010' data points are highlighted on the graph. For more information, please visit: http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a003800/a003802/index.html

After the world has moved on, bands of wild behavior analysts roam the deserts, searching for reinforcement wherever it can be found. Yet there are still tales. Tales of the last research journal library, home of the mythical grab bag wherein the full repository of behavior analytic knowledge still remains. Many pseudoscientists scoff at these tales, but the true BCBAs know that this research grab bag exists. Lost beyond the horizon, beyond the burned sea, beyond…THUNDERDOME!

Media reports on warm ‘blob’ in Pacific Ocean Radioactive!
 
05:12
Media outlets are widely reporting on two recent studies in the journal Geophysical Research Letters describing a giant "blob" of warm water that may be responsible for recent ecological and weather anomalies across the United States -- from California's drought to the East Coast's severe winter to the thousands of dying sea lions washing up along the West Coast. The "blob" -- more precisely, the "warm anomaly" -- is a patch of ocean water just off the coast of the Pacific Northwest that is about 1,000 miles across, 300 feet deep, and 3 degrees Celsius (5 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than usual. It received its nickname from Nick Bond of Washington State University, lead author of one of the new studies. Do the new studies actually explain what the media are claiming? Are there potential explanations that are being ignored? What did the studies find? Already, researchers have linked the blob to many of this past year's alarming ecological occurrences. Warmer water is less rich in nutrients, which scientists say has caused effects including a crash in the population of copepods (tiny animals that form the base of the ocean's food web) and the starvation of sea lion pups, causing thousands of the animals to strand themselves onshore. The warm water has also caused tropical fish to appear near Seattle. The new study by Bond and colleagues also links the blob to the recent weather disturbances. The researchers claim that the blob actually has an atmospheric cause: an unseasonal ridge of high-pressure air hovering above it. This high-pressure air (instead of the low-pressure air typical for the winter) has been associated with the ocean becoming unseasonably calm and warm, removing a major source of rain for the West Coast and contributing to California's drought and the West Coast's warmer-than-usual winter, according to the researchers. The second study traced the blob to another patch of unseasonably warm water, this one in the Tropics near the intersection of the Equator and the International Date Line. This warm water has been heating up the air above it, directly leading to the unseasonably warm patch of air that is heating the waters off the U.S. coast. "It's like throwing a rock into a pond," researcher Dennis Hartmann said. "The wave eventually makes its way to the other side." This same wave of warm air actually crosses the entire North American continent, the researchers found, eventually causing a wet, low-pressure system over the central and eastern United States. This system, called a "North Pacific Mode," contributed to this year's remarkably cold and snowy winter, the researchers claim. Although North Pacific Modes have been observed before, this past year's was more extreme and longer lasting than has been seen before. Potential Fukushima link not being investigated According to media reports, no one knows what has caused the unusually warm Tropical waters responsible for all of these climate and ecological effects. But some have asked whether radioactive material emitted into the ocean by the Fukushima disaster might not be partially responsible. In 2011, multiple meltdowns at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant caused a flood of radioactive material to enter the Pacific Ocean. Since then, some observers have drawn attention to a trend of a rapidly warming Pacific Ocean. The question has been raised as to whether this could be caused by heated groundwater and radioactive waste from the Fukushima plant flowing into the Pacific, thereby slowly raising ocean temperatures over the past few years. Since this radioactive material has been continuously flowing from the plant over the past four years, this mass could have drifted out to sea and could still be heating water as a side effect of its ongoing radioactive decay.
