Discover First Hand The Changing Mediterranean Sea

17.11.2005


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.

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Key advance for future topological transistors

Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...

Im Focus: Researchers develop method to transfer entire 2D circuits to any smooth surface

What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.

Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...

Im Focus: Three components on one chip

Scientists at the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) succeed in important further development on the way to quantum Computers.

Quantum computers one day should be able to solve certain computing problems much faster than a classical computer. One of the most promising approaches is...
