    WHOI Hosts Public Event Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Discovery of Deep-Sea Hot Springs

    Ballard will be the keynote speaker at a free public forum, hosted by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) as part of the Morss Colloquia series, recapitulating the discovery of hydrothermal vent life 40 years ago on the Galápagos Rift near Galápagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean. The event will be held 6 to 8 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017 in the Lillie Auditorium, 7 MBL Street, Woods Hole; it also includes a discussion afterward by a panel of scientists on current and future research on chemosynthetic life forms, which live on chemicals in the absence of sunlight—on Earth and possibly on other planetary bodies.

    New Technique Offers Clues to Measure Ocean Deoxygenation

    More than two percent of the ocean’s oxygen content has been depleted during the last half century, and marine “dead zones” continue to expand throughout the global ocean. This deoxygenation, triggered mainly by human activity, poses a serious threat to marine life and ecosystems.

    Phytoplankton & Chips

    Microbes mediate the global marine cycles of elements, modulating atmospheric CO2 and helping to maintain the oxygen we all breath yet there is much about them scientists still don’t understand. Now, an award from the Simons Foundation will give researchers from the Darwin Project access to bigger, better computing resources to model these communities and probe how they work.
