Antarctic’s Siren Call: The Sound of Icebergs

Scientists at the Cooperative Institute for Marine Resources Studies (CIMRS) are investigating sounds generated by icebergs in the Southern Ocean and their potential to affect marine animals and ecosystems.  While the steady increase in global shipping traffic has been identified as a primary cause of rising ocean noise level, the disintegration of large icebergs was found to be another significant noise source that influences the soundscape of the southern hemisphere.

Recent CICS-P Study Examines Hawaiian Ozone Changes

A new study, led by Cooperative Institute for Climate Science – Princeton (CICS-P) Scientist Meiyun Lin, discovers that climate shifts have caused Asian ozone pollution reaching Hawaii to rise unexpectedly in autumn since the mid-1990s. The findings, published in Nature Geoscience, indicate that variability in airflow patterns must be considered when attributing observed ozone changes to human-induced trends in precursor emissions.

CIMEC’s Work Elucidates Reference Points from Stock Assessment Results
One of the major objectives of stock assessments is the determination of Reference Points that are frequently used to help guide policy. CIMEC's work has implications for how stock assessments are conducted and interpreted, particularly as assessments are being attempted on stocks with progressively more limited data.
