9th International INMARTECH Symposium
Corvallis, Oregon


The 9th International Marine Technician, INMARTECH 2014, Symposium will be held at Oregon State University (OSU) in Corvallis, Oregon on November 18-21, 2014. INMARTECH symposia were initiated with the purpose of providing a forum for marine technicians to meet and exchange knowledge and experiences, thereby aiming to improve equipment performance, deployment, and operational techniques during scientific cruises on research vessels.

NASA sees Extra-Tropical Storm Pam moving away from New Zealand
Pam, a once powerful Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Scale is now an extra-tropical storm moving past northern New Zealand. NASA's Aqua satellite and the ISS-RapidScat instrument provided a look at the storm's structure and wind speed.

Microbes in the seafloor: Little nutrients, lots of oxygen
About one-quarter of the global seafloor is extremely nutrient poor. Contrary to previous assumptions, it contains oxygen not just in the thin surface layer, but also throughout its entire thickness.

Neither more food nor better food -- still, fish biomass increases
To increase the biomass of fish, contemporary ecological theory predicts that either the amount of food or the quality of the food has to increase. In a recent experiment, researchers at Umeå University doubled the fish biomass under identical food supply and food quality by only controlling how much of total food supply that was channeled to juvenile and adult fish, respectively. The results have major implications for the exploitation (harvest) of fish populations and the coexistence of predatory fish and their prey.

East Antarctica melting could be explained by oceanic gateways
Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin have discovered two seafloor gateways that could allow warm ocean water to reach the base of Totten Glacier, East Antarctica's largest and most rapidly thinning glacier. The discovery probably explains the glacier's extreme thinning and raises concerns about how it will affect sea level rise. Their research was published in the March 16 edition of the journal Nature Geoscience.

NOAA announces novel feeder for juvenile and larval fish
NOAA Fisheries researchers have developed a fish feeder that allows fish farmers to automatically feed young fish on a recurrent basis while protecting the feed from oxidation and clumping. The patent-pending Microparticulate Feeder for Larval and Juvenile Fish was developed at NOAA's Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, Wash., and is now available for licensing by a qualified US company.

Study: Past warming increased snowfall on Antarctica, affecting global sea level
A new study confirms that snowfall in Antarctica will increase significantly as the planet warms, offsetting future sea level rise from other sources -- but the effect will not be nearly as strong as many scientists previously anticipated because of other, physical processes.

Warm ocean water is making Antarctic glacier vulnerable to significant melting
Researchers have discovered a valley underneath East Antarctica's most rapidly-changing glacier that delivers warm water to the base of the ice, causing significant melting.

Global warming brings more snow to Antarctica
Although it sounds paradoxical, rising temperatures might result in more snowfall in Antarctica. Each degree Celsius of regional warming could increase snowfall on the ice continent by about 5 percent, an international team of scientists now quantified. The results provide a missing link for future projections of Antarctica's critical contribution to sea-level rise. However, the increase in snowfall will not save Antarctica from losing ice.

Frequency of tornadoes, hail linked to El Niño, La Niña
A new study shows that El Niño and La Niña conditions can help predict the frequency of tornadoes and hail storms in some of the most susceptible regions of the United States.
