Researchers Compare Observations Versus Modeling of Coastal Carbon Cycle
March 4, 2024
Written by Sarah Derouin, EOS,

While storing carbon dioxide, the coastal ocean also releases methane and nitrous oxide. New research shows that understanding the impact of coastal oceans on climate requires more research into these fluxes and how they counteract each other.

Hydrological cycle amplification reshapes warming-driven oxygen loss in the Atlantic Ocean
Jan. 8, 2024
Written by Allison Hogikyan *23, University of Chicago

The loss of oxygen from the ocean due to warming is not ubiquitous. In the Atlantic Ocean there has been no oxygen loss or gain in the subtropics over the past six decades (top 1 km, see Figure). Hogikyan and co-authors show that the amplification of the hydrological cycle, a response to climate change that results in a ‘salty-get-saltier,…

Unique ocean circulation reshapes Indian Ocean oxygen minimum zone
Nov. 29, 2023
Written by Sam J. Ditkovsky, Graduate Student

The global ocean is losing oxygen with warming. Observations and Earth system model projections, however, suggest that this global ocean deoxygenation does not equate to a simple and systematic expansion of tropical oxygen minimum zones (OMZs).

An exploratory project to investigate the benefits of farming seaweed in the open ocean has been selected for funding from Princeton’s Dean for Research Innovation Fund for the Sustainability of Our Planet.

Study reveals how inland and coastal waterways influence climate
March 16, 2022
Written by Office of Communications

A study co-led by climate scientist Laure Resplandy, an assistant professor of geosciences and the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI) at Princeton University, details how carbon is stored and transported through the intricacy of inland and coastal waterways.

The modern face of science
Jan. 31, 2022

Whose stories do you tell when you teach science and engineering? Newton? Galileo? Maybe Marie Curie? That question was posed to eight members of Princeton’s science and engineering faculty as part of their work in a Community of Practice group focused on adding diverse voices to course materials. Professor Resplandy mention.

Julius Busecke publishes new study on the importance of the equatorial ciruculation for oxygen minimum zones
Nov. 21, 2019

While the ocean as a whole is losing oxygen due to warming, oxygen minimum zones (OMZs) are maintained by a delicate balance of biological and physical processes; it is unclear how each one of them is going to evolve in the future.

Ocean provides a buffer against climate change
Oct. 29, 2019

Professors Laure Resplandy and Daniel Sigman explain how the ocean absorbs heat and carbon dioxide, providing a buffer against climate change. Researchers are modeling the long-term impacts to marine ecosystems and climate. (Video by Video Production Support and the Office of Communications)

Breathing Life into the Indian Ocean by predicting 'dead zones'
Dec. 2, 2018

In 2001, off India’s coastal state of Goa, the shrimp catch dropped by 80 percent in just a few years. The die-off was later traced to a dip in the ocean’s oxygen level. “It was a massive event that almost collapsed the fisheries on the western Indian coast".
