Women of the oceans: Nadia Pinardi among the worldwide excellence

Twenty years ago a new branch of oceanography has been established, that is ocean weather forecasts. Today we can know daily changes in temperatures, currents, waves, sea level. How? With numerical models and field observations. Read the story of Nadia Pinardi, pioneer of current oceanography, in the reportage on D Repubblica […]

Antarctica: ice, climate change and what might happen

The Antarctic sea ice cover have continued to increase despite climate change effects. Nevertheless, Antarctic ice sheet is at risk due to climate change: it doesn’t lose its mass because of surface melting, but by the calving of icebergs at the front of marine terminating glaciers or at the front of the ice shelves. But there’s another additional threats to the future of Antarctica, that is the ocean-induced basal melting of the ice sheets, a process that could cause the fast disappearing of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The complete melting ice of West Antarctica would represent a global mean sea level rise of about six meters […]

Safe and efficient navigation in the Mediterranean Sea

How to find the best nautical routes to sail in the Mare Nostrum? The answer is VISIR, a system developed thanks to the collaboration between advanced research and users. Designed for various kinds of both motor- and sailboats, the system is now available online and as a mobile application on Google Play and Apple Store. Two studies recently published describe its features, functionalities and the science at its basis […]
