Sci­entific pub­lic­a­tion on the role of mi­cro­bial com­munit­ies in the mar­ine car­bon cycle. Many processes in the deep sea are not yet well understood, and the role of microbial communities…

New discoveries about the nature of light

…could improve methods for heating fusion plasma. Both literally and figuratively, light pervades the world. It banishes darkness, conveys telecommunications signals between continents and makes visible the invisible, from faraway…

On the trail of global climate change

– volcanism as a driver of the climate in the “Carnic crisis”. New research on the so-called ‘Carnian Crisis’ by a team led by Alexander Lukeneder, palaeontologist at the Natural…

‘Vigorous melting’ at Antarctica’s Thwaites Glacier

Satellite radar data show kilometer-scale seawater intrusion, causing ice to rise and fall. A team of glaciologists led by researchers at the University of California, Irvine used high-resolution satellite radar…

Zombie cells in the sea

Viruses keep the most common marine bacteria in check. Marine microbes control the flux of matter and energy essential for life in the oceans. Among them, the bacterial group SAR11…

How heatwaves are affecting Arctic phytoplankton

The basis of the marine food web in the Arctic, the phytoplankton, responds to heatwaves much differently than to constantly elevated temperatures. This has been found by the first targeted…
