Was Life Inevitable? New Paper Pieces Together Metabolism’s Beginnings

Santa Fe Institute

Two Santa Fe Institute researchers offer a coherent picture of how metabolism, and thus all life, arose. Their paper offers new insights into the likelihood of life emerging and evolving as it did on Earth, and the chances of it arising elsewhere in the universe.

New System for Aircraft Forecasts Potential Storm Hazards Over Oceans

National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)

NCAR has developed a prototype system to help flights avoid major storms as they travel over remote ocean regions. The 8-hour forecasts of potentially dangerous atmospheric conditions are designed for pilots, air traffic controllers, and others involved in flights over remote ocean regions where limited weather information is available.

Whale Racket: Sounding Out How Loud the Oceans Were From Whale Vocalizing Prior to Industrial Whaling

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Concern is growing that human-generated noise in the ocean disrupts marine animals that rely on sound for communication and navigation. In the modern ocean, the background noise can be ten times louder than it was just 50 years ago. But new modeling based on recently published data suggests that 200 years ago – prior to the industrial whaling era -- the ocean was even louder than today due to the various sounds whales make.

Dinosaur Era Acoustics: Global Warming May Give Oceans the ‘Sound’ of the Cretaceous

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Global temperatures directly affect the acidity of the ocean, which in turn changes the acoustical properties of sea water. New research suggests that global warming may give Earth’s oceans the same hi-fi sound qualities they had more than 100 million years ago, during the Age of the Dinosaurs.

Stratosphere Targets Deep Sea to Shape Climate

University of Utah

A University of Utah study suggests something amazing: Periodic changes in winds high in the stratosphere influence the seas by striking a vulnerable “Achilles heel” in the North Atlantic and changing mile-deep ocean circulation patterns, which in turn affect Earth’s climate.

How Ocean Currents Affect Global Climate Becoming Better Understood

Florida State University

Florida State University oceanographer Kevin Speer has a “new paradigm” for describing how the world’s oceans circulate — and with it he may help reshape science’s understanding of the processes by which wind, water, sunlight and other factors interact and influence the planet’s climate.
