A Location Strategy for Funding Port Infrastructure

A Location Strategy for Funding Port Infrastructure

“When you've been to one port, you've been to one port.” So goes a saying exemplifying the understanding among the maritime community that every port is inherently unique. Each port has an exceptional identity and, likewise, an exceptional way in which its problems must be presented, addressed and solved.

Melting Sea Ice: A Canary in the Coal Mine

The rapid loss of Arctic sea ice is a sentinel. Most of us will never venture into the Arctic, but it can and does provide us with a forewarning of impacts coming to our parts of the Earth – and some of the most significant impacts will directly affect the maritime industry.   In earlier times, coal miners were sometimes overcome by the buildup of odorless carbon monoxide gas.

Strong El Niño Events Cause Large Antarctic Ice Loss -Study

Oscillations of water temperature in the tropical Pacific Ocean can induce rapid melting of Antarctic ice shelves   Strong El Niño events can cause significant ice loss in some Antarctic ice shelves while the opposite may occur during strong La Niña events, according to a new study published January 8 in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Giant Iceberg Breaks off Antarctica

Giant Iceberg Breaks off Antarctica

One of the biggest icebergs on record has broken away from Antarctica, scientists said on Wednesday, creating an extra hazard for ships around the continent as it breaks up.   The one trillion tonne iceberg, measuring 5,800 square km, calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica sometime between July 10 and 12, said scientists at the University of Swansea and the British Antarctic Survey.

Fresh Water below the Seafloor?

Fresh Water below the Seafloor?
