Ocean Exploration Uncovers One of Cuba's Hidden Natural Treasures

After nearly two years of planning, a team of scientists from the U.S. and Cuba has explored never-before-studied mesophotic coral reefs along the entire coast of Cuba, spanning about 1,500 miles. Except for a few places along the coast, prior to this expedition, there were virtually no data or charts indicating what was beyond the shallow reef zone.

The Good, the Bad and the Algae

Salton_pic_swap.jpg

Sandia National Laboratories is testing whether one of California’s largest and most polluted lakes can transform into one of its most productive and profitable. Southern California’s 350-square-mile Salton Sea has well-documented problems related to elevated levels of nitrogen and phosphorus from agricultural runoff. Sandia intends to harness algae’s penchant for prolific growth to clean up these pollutants and stop harmful algae blooms while creating a renewable, domestic source of fuel.
