Late last year, more than 30 researchers from countries spanning the Atlantic met in Southampton, UK at the National Oceanography Centre to foster coordination of research efforts focused on the Irminger Sea region. Of central importance to the workshop was to bring in young investigators. “The Irminger Sea workshop provided me with an incredibly valuable […]
Check out the recently published paper in Nature Climate Change focusing on the Irminger Sea: Increased risk of a shutdown of ocean convection posed by warm North Atlantic summers Marilena Oltmanns*, Johannes Karstensen and Jürgen Fischer Abstract: A shutdown of ocean convection in the subpolar North Atlantic, triggered by enhanced melting over Greenland, is regarded […]
A new Community Tool, created by Dr. William Wilcock of the University of Washington, in collaboration with Drs. Maya Tolstoy and Felix Waldhauser of Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University, provides near-real time documentation of earthquakes on the Axial Seamount using OOI seismometer data. The OOI Cabled Array spans the Juan de Fuca tectonic […]
Data from the OOI Southern Ocean Array Surface Mooring have been integrated into the World Meteorological Organization’s Global Telecommunication System, making these data more easily accessible for weather forecasters and modelers.
A new computer vision routine, developed by Aaron Marburg at UW-APL and aided by Tim Crone at LDEO and Friedrich Knuth at Rutgers, is now able to correctly identify and tag scenes of scientific interest in the CAMHD video stream. These scenes were previously being manually identified by students at Rutgers University, a process which […]
On August 21, the path of totality of the “Eclipse Across America” will pass directly over two OOI Coastal Endurance Array Surface Moorings. These moorings will “see” the eclipse minutes before it is seen from the mainland.
The Axial Seamount Biology Catalog is a collection of stunning video and still imagery obtained during the Construction and Operation and Maintenance phases of the OOI Cabled Array spanning 2011 to 2016. The catalog currently contains 39 unique faunal entries, 63 videos, and 62 images.
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution recently published a video highlighting how data from the Pioneer Array is helping research explore life on the Continental Shelf off the coast of New England. Check out the full story here.
Undergraduate students at Rutgers University have used still frames extracted from the HD Video camera (CAMHD) to compile time-lapse videos of the hydrothermal vent, under the direction of the OOI Data Team. There are 7 biological scenes of interest, captured during the pan/zoom routine of each video. The students are helping produce metadata by time-stamping […]
This report summarizes discussions from a mini-workshop held after the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Natural Gas Hydrates March 4-5, 2016. The workshop was focused on opportunities presented by the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) Cabled Array at Southern Hydrate Ridge. Further information on the conference can be found on the conference website. Download the full […]
