Over the weekend, the combination of the spring tide and a high amplitude ocean eddy resulted in localized coastal flooding around low-lying areas of Bermuda. Tides were running around 1.5 ft above expected levels which were already higher than normal thanks to a spring tide.

07 July 2017 / Kiel. In 2014, an international research team led by the Kiel Cluster of Excellence “The Future Ocean” and the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel was able to investigate in detail eddies in the Atlantic Ocean which were characterized by extremely low oxygen concentrations. The interdisciplinary analysis of the data and samples has revealed processes which were not previously known to occur in the Atlantic. This also includes the natural production of considerable amounts of greenhouse gases, as the team has now published in the international scientific journal Scientific Reports.
