Satellite trio to explore the Earth's magnetic field
SWARM is an ESA mission as part of its "Living Planet" program. "The satellite swarm -- hence the name -- is to measure the Earth's magnetic field from space with unprecedented precision for at least four years," elaborated professor Huettl. For this, the three satellites fly in an optimized formation.

Expert assessment: Sea-level rise could exceed 1 meter in this century
Sea-level rise in this century is likely to be 70-120 centimeters by 2100 if greenhouse-gas emissions are not mitigated, a broad assessment of the most active scientific publishers on that topic has revealed. The 90 experts participating in the survey anticipate a median sea-level rise of 200-300 centimeters by the year 2300 for a scenario with unmitigated emissions.

MU research sheds light on nerve regeneration following spinal cord injury
University of Missouri researchers have discovered how the sea lamprey, an eel-like fish, regrows the neurons that comprise the long nerve "highways" that link the brain to the spinal cord. Findings may guide future efforts to promote recovery in humans who have suffered spinal cord injuries.

Early-career investigator discovers current volcanic activity under West Antarctica
Scientists funded by the National Science Foundation have observed "swarms" of seismic activity -- thousands of events in the same locations, sometimes dozens in a single day -- between January 2010 and March 2011, indicating current volcanic activity under the massive West Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Scripps oceanography researchers engineer breakthrough for biofuel production
Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have developed a method for greatly enhancing biofuel production in tiny marine algae. As reported in this week's online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Scripps graduate student Emily Trentacoste led the development of a method to genetically engineer a key growth component in biofuel production.

Respiratory disorder in the ocean
For more than four months, from Nov. 2012 to March 2013, Kiel ocean scientists investigated on the German research vessel METEOR the oxygen-poor upwelling regions in the tropical Pacific off Peru. First results of the project carried out in the context of the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 754 "Climate-biogeochemistry interactions in the tropical ocean" show how eddies in the ocean influence the oxygen and nutrient distribution in the oxygen-poor regions.

Oxygen, phosphorous and early life on Earth
Two billion years ago the Earth system was recovering from perhaps the single-most profound modification of its surface environments: the oxygenation of the atmosphere and oceans. This led to a series of major changes in global biogeochemical cycles, as a team around Aivo Lepland of the Norwegian Geological Survey NGU reports in the latest online edition of "Nature Geoscience".

Safety in numbers? Not so for corals
Traditionally, it was assumed that corals do not face a risk of extinction unless they become very rare or have a very restricted range. A team of scientists from the University of Hawaii and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has revealed that global changes in climate and ocean chemistry affect corals whether scare or abundant, and often it is the dominant, abundant corals with wide distributions that are affected the most.

Ocean acidification: Hard to digest
Ocean acidification impairs digestion in marine organisms, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change. Researchers from Sweden and Germany have studied the larval stage of green sea urchins Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis. The results show that the animals have problems digesting food in acidified water.

The Gorgons of the eastern Pacific: scientists describe 2 new gorgonian soft coral species
Gorgonians are a type of soft corals easily distinguishable by the complex branching shape, which has also probably inspired their name, coming from the Gorgon Medusa -- a creature from the Greek mythology that had hair made of venomous snakes. The existence of Medusa outside myth might be debatable, but gorgonian corals do exist and scientists describe two new beautiful species in the open access journal Zookeys.

The 66th Annual Division of Fluid Dynamics Meeting
A question for Jupiter
Based on what scientists understand about fluid dynamics, Jupiter's Great Red Spot should have disappeared centuries ago. Pedram Hassanzadeh, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard, and Philip Marcus, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, think they can explain why. Their work, which Hassanzadeh will present at the annual meeting of the APS'S Division of Fluid Dynamics this November, also provides insight into persistent ocean eddies and vortices that contribute to star and planet formation.
