CINAR Researchers Deploy Automated Plankton Microscopy on Recent EcoMon Survey

Cooperative Institute for the North Atlantic Region (CINAR) researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) collaborated with the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) to integrate continuous automated microscopic analysis of plankton with a recent Ecosystem Monitoring (EcoMon) program cruise aboard the R/V Okeanos Explorer. The successful deployment produced millions of high resolution plankton images that are providing taxon-specific information about spatial distribution patterns in waters of southern New England and the Gulf of Maine.

High Tropospheric Ozone Concentrations Due to Stratosphere-to-Troposphere Transport Reported

High Tropospheric Ozone Concentrations Due to Stratosphere-to-Troposphere Transport Reported
The journal, Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, just published results of a recent experiment examining two stratosphere-to-troposphere (STT) events observed over California. NOAA/NESDIS researchers at the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), University of Wisconsin-Madison, are collaborating with NASA scientists, university researchers and air quality and public health scientists to analyze airborne and in situ measurements of ozone and other trace gases that accompany STT events. STT events are of concern because the ozone may increase to dangerous levels, triggering public health warnings.

Antarctic’s Siren Call: The Sound of Icebergs

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

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

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.

About Us

The NOAA Cooperative Institutes are academic and non-profit research institutions that demonstrate the highest level of performance and conduct research that supports NOAA's Mission Goals and Strategic Plan. Cooperative Institutes are located at institutions whose geographic expanse extends from Hawaii to Maine and from Alaska to Florida. Currently, NOAA supports 16 Cooperative Institutes consisting of 42 universities and research institutions across 23 states and the District of Columbia
