On the impact of blogging — or how far does my message mix?

by Mirjam Sophia Glessmer in Adventures in Oceanography and Teaching

What is the impact of this blog? And who am I writing it for? Those are not questions I regularly ask myself. The main reason I started blogging was to organise all the interesting stuff I was collecting for my introduction to oceanography lecture at the University of Bergen in one place, so I would…...

Nonlinear effects in shallow water waves

by Mirjam Sophia Glessmer in Adventures in Oceanography and Teaching

I recently googled for something related to the shape of waves and came across a photo of a wave that caught my eye, and it took me to a journey that lead to the article “nonlinear shallow ocean wave soliton interactions on flat beaches” by Ablowitz and Baldwin (2012). What’s discussed in that article is that while…... Read more »

Climate change, the long view

by gdw in FictionalFieldwork

Now and forever, or at least for a very long time By 2050, sea levels will have risen this much. If we don’t act, average global temperature will rise x degrees by 2100. These are the things we all hear in the discussion concerning climate change and its consequences. But beyond the turn of the […]... Read more »

Web of lies and the public

by Sergio Graziosi in Writing my own user manual - Sergio Graziosi's Blog

In the previous two posts I’ve gone through the depressing exercise of exploring the misconstrued world-view that led the UK to leave the EU. The picture that emerges is not limited to the UK, but is a paradigm example of…Read more ›... Read more »

No Population Continuity Between Pre Toba Eruption And Extant Humans In India

It's True: The Southwest Is Getting Drier

by Jenny Ludmer in Rooster's Report

Home of tumbleweeds and roadrunners, it’s no surprise that the Southwest is the driest region of the United States. And yet, new research confirms that which many have predicted: it’s getting even dryer. Not only are droughts more common, but they are more intense and longer-lasting too.... Read more »

Will climate change lead to more blizzards?

Snowstorms like the one that hit the east coast of North America this weekend are sometimes used by climate sceptics to argue that global warming is a hoax. “Surely we wouldn’t have seen 2 feet of snow if the temperature...... Read more »

Is 2°C warming a sensible target?

Baby Giant Squids

by Dr. M in Deep Sea News

We know almost nothing about Giant Squids with mantles lengths less than 1000 mm  (~40 inches).  Very young squids are even more enigmatic than adults.  A recent study reports the collection of three very young Giant Squids off the Japanese coast.  The three young measured 140.8, 332, and 332 mm (5.5 and 13 inches). The heaviest of […]... Read more »
