Did you know that the seafood choices you make can help support healthy oceans? Not all fish are caught or farmed in environmentally responsible ways, but each of us has the power – by the way we choose to spend our money – to shape demand for seafood that’s been caught or farmed sustainably.
This new video from our Seafood Watch program quickly shows you how you can help protect the ocean just by asking your local grocery store or restaurant if they serve sustainable seafood. The oceans will thank you for it!
The Seafood Watch program provides scientifically based recommendations on what seafood options are best for the environment. You can also download the free Seafood Watch app or pick up a consumer pocket guide today.
Not really related to the iron model, but there’s a bunch of cool data out there if you want to discover the physical properties of a region.
I’m using this data to try to cluster areas of similar magnetic and gravitational anomalies in the Gulf of Mexico. I want to see if such clustering would show crustal rock type and/or presence of ores.
Check this out if you want to find data; select properties, and a region, and a format you can work with (I recommend XYZ).
The top chart set shows iron modeled over 10,000 years, and the bottom shows the same data over 10 years.
Three problems worth noting:
- I have not added organic/biological processes yet.
- The x axis is terribly wrong due to adaptive step and me not fixing it.
- I have the non-biological uptake of iron set 10x higher in this than it needs to be.
I’m still in conceptual beta; I want to make this an actual intuitive solution soon.

Seeing Photosynthesis from Space
NASA scientists have established a new way to use satellites to measure what’s occurring inside plants at a cellular level.
Plants grow and thrive through photosynthesis, a process that converts sunlight into energy. During photosynthesis, plants emit what is called fluorescence – light invisible to the naked eye but detectable by satellites orbiting hundreds of miles above Earth. NASA scientists have now established a method to turn this satellite data into global maps of the subtle phenomenon in more detail than ever before.
Passing off, I guess.
I promise I’ll post updates once I start research. I’m just brushing up on regular expressions and fortran for now.
Ito Group at GT
This is more of a reminder to myself, but I’m sure someone else would be interested in the research group I work for/with.
