How to Lessen the Effects of Harmful Algal Bloom Events

Can we clean up, stop, or end harmful algal blooms? No, but there are ways to lessen the effects of harmful algal bloom events, according to a recent NOAA-publication. Harmful algal blooms — often referred to as HABs for short — occur when algae produce toxic or harmful effects on people, fish, shellfish, marine mammals, birds, or other aquatic organisms. Blooms occur in marine and freshwater environments throughout the world, with damaging ecological, social, and economic effects. So why can’t we clean up the algae and take care of this problem? Unfortunately, the answer is not so simple. Harmful algal blooms are a... (read more)

Evidence of Large Episodic Volcanic Events on the Seafloor

Scientists at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel in Germany who are trying to understand how the Earth’s surface was formed have used new technology to date lava flows at the North Kolbeinsey Ridge, located about 500 kilometres north of Iceland. They found evidence of large, deep-sea volcanic eruptions which probably formed almost half of the Earth’s crust. The study will be published in the next issue of the international journal 'Earth and Planetary Science Letters'. The Icelandic volcanic eruptions of Eyjafallajokull and Bardabunga have produced impressive images of the volcanic activity on the island in recent years. As... (read more)
