Questions related to Atlantic Ocean
There is a difference between height of Pacific and Atlantic Ocean. Could it be explored for hydro energy generation using PCHs technology?
Usually people consume Fish in winter.
But in some areas it is consumed by few people in summer weather.
While some people say that fish is not good for health in summer?
What is your opinion?
In order to analyze the distribution of seabirds, I need to get information on the zooplankton in several localities throughout the Atlantic. Does this exists, as raster layers (or equivalent)?
I already explored the copepod tool (https://www.st.nmfs.noaa.gov/copepod/toolkit/) without success.
Thanks in advance,
I am interested in the Cenozoic history of surface circulation in the Atlantic Ocean, particularly in the subtropical and tropical regions. However, most information I have found so far is related to the North Atlantic.
In particular, I would like to know if the main currents and countercurrents have changed their intensity, in response to climatic and tectonic dynamics during the last 66 million years. What are the evidences for these changes? What literature would you recomend for solving questions on this topic?
Many thanks in advance.
Does anyone has a seawater quality report or source for mainly False Bay area or anywhere (Indian Ocean, Atlantic Ocean)?
Details of the seawater quality such as nitrate concentration, salt concentration, phosphate concentration is much appreciated.
I am currently doing an analysis of climatic effects on the reproduction of the European shag and I need to get the monthly SST averages in the northwest and north of the Iberian Peninsula. Does anyone know where this data could be downloaded? I'd be glad for any help!
Thanks a lot
The Southeastern region of the United States of America, including Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and the Caribbean archipelagos are being devastated by a higher number of hurricanes than ever before--Why? Are these stronger and more frequent wind and rain storms evidence of (1) global warming; or (2) climate change?
During an expedition in deep-sea southwestern Atlantic Ocean, we found some samples but we don't know what they are. They have a thick wall and they are “hard”, as if they were made of plastic. They seem to be a mass with several egg capsules, but looking at the content under the stereoscopic microscope has lead as up to nothing… Does anyone have an idea of what this can be?
Thanks in advance,
I'm currently arguing with a Muslim friend about a part of the Coran that says the Atlantic ocean's waters and the Mediterranean sea's waters are separated by a invisible barrier and thus never get mixed with one another.
This do kind of make sense for me at the macroscopic level. But it does not make any sense for me if looking at the microscopic level. I think that at a microscopic level there is an exchange of ions and a mixing between both waters with a transition area which proprieties are a mean of both. The fact that the proprieties of the Mediterranean sea and the Atlantic ocean are different would be due to the fact that this process is slow and dependent of waves, turbulence and the surface of contact between the two.
As I am not specialist is marine sciences...could anyone enlighten me? Maybe one of you could suggest articles that would help me understand!
Thank you very much
I am sorting mollusks from coral habitats (sediment samples in 450 - 600 m water depth) off the Great Bahama Bank, off western Florida and off northern Yucatan. I struggle with a large number of unknown species as I am unfamiliar with the region and do not have access to many historical papers with imaged species. I am looking for an authority from the region who would be willing to help out. The molluscan material looks very promising in terms of rare and unknown species with potential for publication in 2019-2020.
For more information, please refer to my update on the project on NW Atlantic Mollusca.
Grateful for any help, Leon Hoffman
An explanation or any clearly written articles would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Am working on taxonomic identifications of sampled coastal marine benthic macroinvertebrates from Atlantic ocean (Gulf of guinea / bight of Benin). Am in need of basic taxonomic keys in the identifications to species level of the sampled benthos.
I have generated Mg/Ca data of G. Tumida and Uvigerina species.
Good afternoon community, I was wondering if there were algorithms used to calculate the environmental preferences (pH, Oxygen, etc) on marine organisms based on the results of temperature preferences and temperature scopes obtained in laboratory. I recognize that this question couldnt make much sense, take into consideration that I have never worked with the ecophisiology of organisms before, but if they exist, what data do I need? What I want to do, is to apply a bioclimatic envelope model with the temperature preferences obtained in laboratory, but as I read more and more papers, it doesnt seem that the temperature alone is going to work very well. I could always infer the preferences of the environmental variables overlapping it with the presence/absence data , but im aiming for something more realistic. Thank you!
I was really intrigued yesterday after I fished this... bowl?
I first thought it was a sponge, but the structure does not fit at all. Today I asked some colleagues of mine, the idea came about a sea cucumber. But I am not that convinced.
What do you think ?
I want to determine light intensity profiles at different depths (down to 1000m) in the North Atlantic ocean. Is there any databases which provide this information ready available?
There are several studies documenting temporal trends in marine productivity (e.g. plankton biomass or commercial fisheries landings). However, I am looking for studies that show whether there are differences in contemporary levels of marine productivity (i.e. biomass, not species numbers).
I've been looking for some historical maritime traffic data for Canada. Anything I have come across is quite expensive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
There is an evident positive trend in the EA index computed by noaa ncep. Could it be related to climate change dynamics or is natural variability?
Added: I think the question should deserve investigation, as was viewed more than 70 times and still no-answered.
I have searched for a data center that provides freely available daily sea surface temperature (SST) for the North Atlantic Ocean. I will need both past (preferably back to 1900), present (2013) and future (preferably up to 2100) data, and if these could be downloadable from the same site with the same resolution (the higher the better) it would be great. Thanks for any suggestions.
