Newswise: Solving the Mystery of Carbon on Ocean Floor

Solving the Mystery of Carbon on Ocean Floor

University of Delaware

Little bits of black carbon littering the ocean floor, separate and distinct from the organic carbon believed to come from the ocean’s surface. The source of that strange, and older, carbon has now been identified by UD researchers. The discovery is an important step in understanding the marine carbon cycle.

National Park Service Scientists: Does Aircraft Noise Make Birds More Vocal?

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

National Park Service scientists analyzed nearly 1 million 10-second audio recording samples from national parks across the country and discovered a small increase in bird sound detection when an aircraft sound is also detected. During the 178th ASA Meeting, Kurt Fristrup will present the findings and how human responses to noise might be studied.
