The Tyrrhenian Sea is getting warmer and saltier and the patterns of sea bottom fauna are changing. These are just some preliminary findings our marine scientists have discovered from the CIESM SUB-1 cruise. CIESM is launching its second “multi-disciplinary” research cruise on December 5-22, from Messina, Italy. You could join scientists from nine different marine Institutes and Universities, to monitor these changes that are taking place. Scientists will be mapping deep-sea mounts, which are hot spots of diversity, with an emphasis on finding new microbes. They will also look for shifts and changes in the food webs which may be effecting fisheries.
The cruise will be broken into two segments the first from December 5-13th and the second from 14-21st. In the first segment scientists will be studying the Geological features and in particular multi-beam mapping. On the second leg of the cruise, those researchers will be studying the Ecology of the water column.
If you are qualified journalist from any media, with an interest in marine science please submit a one page proposal of where and how you would report, if you were invited to join the scientists on this cruise. You or your organization would be responsible for travel to Messina and any hotel accommodations outside the cruise.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
