A new giant virus found in the waters off Oahu

A new, unusually large virus that infects common marine algae has been characterized by researchers at the Daniel K. Inouye Center for Microbial Oceanography. Much of the phytoplankton that grows in the ocean every day gets eaten, thereby sustaining animals in the marine food web. It is common, however, for viral infections to spread through […]

Oceanic microbes behave in synchrony across ocean basins

MEDIA RELEASE Researchers from UH Manoa and colleagues found that microbial communities in different regions of the Pacific Ocean displayed strikingly similar daily rhythms in their metabolism despite inhabiting extremely different habitats – the nutrient-rich waters off California and the nutrient-poor waters north of Hawaii. Furthermore, in each location, the dominant photoautotrophs – light-loving bacteria […]

Climate researchers discover El Nino’s fueling effect on intense hurricanes

MEDIA RELEASE El Nino, the abnormal warming of sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, is a well-studied tropical climate phenomenon that occurs every few years. It has major impacts on society and Earth’s climate – inducing intense droughts and floods in multiple regions of the globe. Further, scientists have observed that El Nino greatly […]

Study: Extrusive volcanism formed the Hawaiian Islands

MEDIA RELEASE A recent study by researchers at the University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) and the University of Rhode Island (URI) changes the understanding of how the Hawaiian Islands formed. Scientists have determined it is the eruptions of lava on the surface, extrusion, which grow Hawaiian […]

Study: Ocean systems undermined by climate change by 2100

MEDIA RELEASE An ambitious new study describes the full chain of events by which ocean biogeochemical changes triggered by manmade greenhouse gas emissions may cascade through marine habitats and organisms, penetrating to the deep ocean and eventually influencing humans. Previous analyses have focused mainly on ocean warming and acidification, considerably underestimating the biological and social […]

Location of upwelling in Earth’s mantle discovered to be stable

MEDIA RELEASE A study published in Nature this week shares the discovery that large-scale upwelling within Earth’s mantle mostly occurs in only two places: beneath Africa and the Central Pacific. More importantly, Clinton Conrad, Associate Professor of Geology at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST), and […]
