Coast Guard Develops and Tests Environmentally-Friendly Buoy Moorings

Homeland Security's Science & Technology Directorate

From among the proposals, S&T found a potential solution to the problem in a simple, but effective, buoy mooring system: instead of a concrete sinker and a heavy metal chain, a narrow screw anchor and an elastic rope to prevent scraping of the ocean floor was proposed and accepted.

Bleaching of Coral Reefs Reduced Where Daily Temperature Changes Are Large

University of California, Irvine

Coral reef bleaching is stark evidence of the damage being inflicted by global climate change on marine ecosystems, but a research team led by scientists at the University of California, Irvine has found some cause for hope. While many corals are dying, others are showing resilience to increased sea surface temperatures, pointing to possible clues to the survival and recovery of these vitally important aquatic habitats.

Transparent Eel-Like Soft Robot Can Swim Silently Underwater

University of California San Diego

An innovative, eel-like robot developed by engineers and marine biologists at the University of California can swim silently in salt water without an electric motor. Instead, the robot uses artificial muscles filled with water to propel itself. The foot-long robot, which is connected to an electronics board that remains on the surface, is also virtually transparent. The team, which includes researchers from UC San Diego and UC Berkeley, details their work in the April 25 issue of Science Robotics.
