Pollution problem likely to worsen
Sunday Star Times
Lakes and rivers around Wellington are some of the most polluted, and the dairy boom will only make the problem worse, a new report says.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Dr Wright said studies showed more nutrients ran off land after it was converted to dairying than when used as pasture for sheep or beef cattle.

Five tips for wildlife viewing in Southwest Florida
The News-Press
Birding expert and FGCU professor Jerry Jackson says some of the best wildlife viewing is at places such as Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve.
Marian Locksley's insight:
Magnify your eyes

The most simple way to bring images of wildlife closer to you is to use binoculars. Scientists and nature experts use them, and you should too if your goal is to see the fine plumage of a nesting yellow-crowned night heron.

That’s not the case on the Great Lakes.

What You Need to Know About #Fukushima  ~ #Radiation Effects on #SeaLife | Rescue our Ocean's & it's species from Man's Pollution! | Scoop.it

All eyes are on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant as major cleanup efforts are set to begin later this month, in the most significant test of the operator’s ability to manage the threats resulting from one of the biggest nuclear disasters ever.

 

For two years now, the plant’s operator and the Japanese government have struggled to contain an ongoing series of crises at the devastated facility. But the situation has the potential to get worse.

 

Here’s what you need to know.

Marian Locksley's insight:

Researchers are concerned about the effects of the radioactive water on sea life and those who eat it. Last year, scientists reported that Pacific bluefin tuna migrating from coastal Japan to the waters off Southern California contained radioactive cesium isotopes from the Fukushima plant. The safety of Pacific fish following the disaster is up for debate.

A reconstruction of 10,000 years of Pacific Ocean temperatures shows its middle depths have warmed 15 times faster in the last 60 years.

Marian Locksley's insight:

24.11.13 ~  http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/deep_oceans_may_be_storing_heat_20131124

 

  Far below the surface, the waters of south-east Asia are heating up. A region of the Pacific is now warming at least 15 times faster than at any time in the last 10,000 years. If this finding – so far limited to the depths where the Pacific and Indian Oceans wash into each other – is true for the blue planet as a whole, then the questions of climate change take on a new urgency.

What can we do to stop the destruction of our oceans & all of the amazing animals that call them home? In this HD video (in association with Selfridges, Greenpeace, ZSL, Marine Conservation Society, Pew Environment Group and ClientEarth), we bring you the shocking facts about the effects of overfishing on marine environments. We need to take action now to protect the diversity of our oceans and prevent them from turning into 'jellyfish soup'.

Cold temperatures may increase biomagnification (RT @Seasaver: #Arctic ecosystems most at risk from mercury #pollution http://t.co/JFEIhAAY0x via @KingstonHerald)...
Marian Locksley's insight:

New research from Queen’s University has shown that mercury biomagnification rates in aquatic ecosystems in the Arctic are higher than those in warmer climates.

 

Biomagnification is the process in all ecosystems which leads to increased concentration of substances like mercury in organisms at increasingly higher levels of the food chain (see chart below). However, this new study by researcher Raphael Lavoie demonstrates that colder temperatures increases the rate of biomagnification in Arctic food chains.
