How innovative autonomous technology is helping scientists to solve the mystery of northern fur seals disappearing from the remote Pribilof Islands.
The Southern Ocean is critical for controlling how much CO2 is in the atmosphere, but as the water absorbs more carbon it becomes more acidic—and that could affect the health of a lot of organisms.
Just how variable is CO2 uptake in the Southern Ocean in winter?
Saildrone designs, manufactures, and operates a global fleet of wind and solar powered ocean drones, providing in-situ data collection services, global ocean data sets, and enhanced weather forecast applications.
