Viruses as Modulators of Interactions in Marine Ecosystems

GEOMAR scientists show a new picture of the role of viruses in the ocean

Maintenance of an oceanographic mooring in the tropical Atlantic. Data from such long-term observations help to detect changes in the oceans and to estimate future developments. They are important contributions to the current Special Report of the IPCC. Photo: Michael Schneider / FS METEOR

Complex Movement of Plates decoded

New Zealand-German study delivers new insights into the works of southwest Pacific submarine volcanism

In the Miocene the land bridge near modern Panama was not yet closed. Relatively fresh water from the Pacific reached the Caribbean. This has been shown, for example, by studies in the Central Caribbean (ODP1000).  Sediment samples taken from ODP1006 now show, however, that between 11.5 and 9.5 million years before today this relatively low-salt water did not leave the Caribbean and thus could not influence the North Atlantic circulation.

Strong Gulfstream System in the Miocene does not contradict Models

Study shows separation between Caribbean and North Atlantic 10 million years ago

The racing yacht Mailzia was built to compete in the Vendée Globe, a one-handed endurance race around the world. Since 2018, it has been equipped with sensors that collect important oceanographic data at sea. Photo: Andreas Lindlahr,
