Ángel Borja has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Hull
Ángel Borja has been awarded an honorary doctorate in science by the University of Hull (UK). This distinction recognises his outstanding research work into the marine environment and the international impact of his work relating to the development of marine water assessment methods and developing environmental change indicators, among many other merits. The University of Hull regards this Honorary Doctorate in Sciences as "an outstanding example of how scientists should engage in the public debate".

Are marine ecosystems headed toward a new productivity regime?
Phytoplankton have been projected to produce less organic material as the oceans' temperatures rise -- with carry-on effects for higher levels of the food web. Based on new climate model simulations, a team of scientists from Sydney and Kiel suggests now that this assumption might be misleading. According to the researchers, ocean productivity might be pushed into a completely new regime in the more distant future.

Closer look at microorganism provides insight on carbon cycling
An Argonne/University of Tennessee research team reconstructed the crystal structure of BAP, a protein involved in the process by which marine archaea release carbon, to determine how it functioned, as well as its larger role in carbon cycling in marine sediments.

NASA sees Tropical Storm Enrique enter cooler waters, weaken
Tropical cyclones need sea surface temperatures of at least 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26.6 Celsius) to maintain strength, and a new infrared image from NASA's Aqua satellite shows that Tropical Storm Enrique has moved into an area where temperatures are under that threshold.

UGA study finds Southeast's rural landscapes pose potential risk for salmonella infection
Researchers from the University of Georgia have determined that various freshwater sources in Georgia, such as rivers and lakes, could feature levels of salmonella that pose a risk to humans. Salmonella infections are one of the top causes of gastrointestinal disease in the US, and while regulatory agencies have made progress in reducing foodborne transmission of the pathogen, other infection sources, including exposure to water, have not been as thoroughly examined.

Lessons learned from the Exxon Valdez and Deepwater Horizon oil spills
Five years ago this week, engineers stopped the Deepwater Horizon oil spill -- the largest one in US history, easily displacing the Exxon Valdez spill from the top spot. Now, Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, takes a look at the lessons scientists are learning from these accidents to improve clean-up efforts and, perhaps, prevent spills altogether.

Climate change threatens one of Lake Erie's most popular fish
Research has suggested yellow perch grow more rapidly during the short winters resulting from climate change, but a new study shows warmer water temperatures can lead to the production of less hardy eggs and larvae that have trouble surviving these early stages of life in Lake Erie.
