Sunken logs create new worlds for seafloor animals

Posted by External 8 days ago General
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com — When it comes to food, most of the deep sea is a desert. In this food-poor environment, even bits of dead wood, waterlogged enough to sink, can support thriving communities of specialized animals. A new paper by biologists shows that wood-boring clams serve as "ecosystem engineers," making the organic matter in the wood available to other animals that colonize wood falls in the deep waters of Mon Read More

Geographers create 'easy button' to calculate river flows from space

Posted by External 29 days ago General
http://feeds.sciencedaily.com — The frustrated attempts of a graduate student to quantify the amount of water draining from Greenland's melting ice sheet led him to discover a new way to measure river flows from outer space. The new approach relies exclusively on measurements of a river's width over time, which can be obtained from freely available satellite imagery. Read More
