A Better Understanding of Gas Exchange Between the Atmosphere and Ocean Can Improve Global Climate Models
Vanda Grubišić, Ph.D., a research meteorologist and experienced scientific leader, has been named the director of NOAA’s Global Monitoring Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado.
The 2013-2016 marine heat wave known as “The Blob” warmed a vast expanse of surface waters across the northeastern Pacific, disrupting West Coast marine ecosystems, depressing salmon returns, and damaging commercial fisheries. It also prompted a wave of research on extreme warming of ocean surface waters.
Kongsberg Digital continues to enhance simulation training by launching its new cloud-based navigation simulation solution. The solution is another advanced simulation technology that Kongsberg Digital offers as an online training application on their digital platform.
Weathernews Inc Rolls Out Highly Accurate Meteorological Data Support Service for Offshore Wind Market
Due to progress in the adoption of green energy and a move to reduce CO2 emissions, offshore wind power has become more important in recent years. For offshore wind power facilities to be built, stringent criteria such as wind and waves are required for determining feasibility. Meteorological data with higher accuracy are therefore required.
