Understanding ITAD

Perhaps your company has purchased secondhand phones or computers, only to discover that the previous owners had left personal information on them.
Or perhaps you’ve heard of major corporations getting penalized millions of dollars for improperly disposing of their IT assets.
Or perhaps you’ve read frightening news reports of landfills stacked high with discarded devices in poor countries, wreaking havoc on the communities they serve and giving easy pickings for … Read More

Seismic ocean thermometry | Science

Hearing the heat

Most of the excess heat that causes global warming is absorbed by the oceans. Quantifying that heat increase is challenging because it requires many different temperature measurements over both the vertical and horizontal extent of the oceans. Wu et al. report success in this effort through the use of a different method: They inferred temperature changes from sound waves generated by repeating earthquakes (see the Perspective by

Scientists use Indian Ocean earthquake data to tell how fast it is warming

Hellen Wadman

Los Angeles: Scientists have developed a novel method to determine how fast the Indian Ocean is warming by analysing the sound from seabed earthquakes, an advance that may lead to a relatively low-cost technique to monitor water temperatures in all of the oceans.

According to the researchers, including those from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in the US, as much as 95 per cent of the extra heat trapped

Shaky way to check on ocean warming

Hellen Wadman

The rumble of earthquakes far below the surface of the ocean are far more interesting than just a way of understanding the Earth’s geology, say US and Chinese researchers. They’ve developed a way to use those seismic waves to measure ocean warming around the world.

The technique, called seismic ocean thermometry, could provide wide-ranging measurements of temperatures at depths of over 2000 metres, says a team led by Wenbo Wu

Exploration Tools: Mapping – GIS: NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research

Hellen Wadman

A GIS (geographic information system) is an unconventional tool for ocean exploration. It is neither a physical device nor a submersible technology that comes into direct contact with the water. A GIS cannot take us any deeper into the oceans, but it can take us further in terms of our understanding, because of the way it gathers and analyzes information. Given enough data, a GIS can, in fact, create a

Earthquake ‘hack’ reveals scale of ocean warming

Information about sea temperatures is critical for climate change but data is sparse in the Indian Ocean
Information about sea temperatures is critical for climate change but data is sparse in the Indian Ocean

Scientists have found a clever new way of measuring ocean warming, using sound waves from undersea earthquakes.

The researchers say the “hack” works because sound travels faster in warmer water.

The team looked at sonic data from the Indian Ocean emitted by tremors over a 10-year period.

Trevor Milton, the founder and executive chairman of Nikola, has resigned amid allegations he misled investors about the prospects of the automotive company, which is developing a line-up of hydrogen- and battery-powered trucks.

The Phoenix-based startup, which went public this year, was called out by short-seller Hindenburg Research in a report released on Sept. 10. The bombshell report came just days after Nikola entered an alliance with General Motors, with

Jupiter’s ocean moons raise tides on each other

Hellen Wadman

Jupiter’s “ocean world” moons may have strong gravitational effects on each other, raising big tides in each others’ subsurface seas, a new study suggests.



The Jupiter moon Europa, seen here by NASA's Galileo spacecraft, harbors a huge ocean beneath its icy shell. Europa's fellow Galilean moons raise powerful tides in that subsurface sea, new research suggests.

. . . . A smoky, orange haze kicks off the beginning of autumn this morning in the Bay Area as red flag fire and evacuation warnings, forced power outages, earthquakes and high winds cast an end-of-times pall over much of California. More than two million acres have burned already this season and we haven’t even hit the October peak yet.

Stanford researchers develop new way to study ocean life

Like spirits passing between worlds, billions of invisible beings rise to meet the starlight, then descend into darkness at sunrise. Microscopic plankton’s daily journey between the ocean’s depths and surface holds the key to understanding crucial planetary processes, but has remained largely a mystery until now. A new Stanford-developed rotating microscope, outlined in a study published Aug. 17 in Nature Methods, offers for the first time a way to track
