Welcome to Marine Science Today, your source for the latest news about the study of our planet’s oceans. You will find here articles and analysis about the people, the technology, the policy and the various research disciplines involved in modern marine science.
Marine Science Today features articles mainly written by its editor, Emily Tripp, who is a marine science graduate of the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Other writers include Michael Bear, Henry Workman, Celia-Ines Ammann and Tom Tripp.
Marine Science Today invites marine researchers and students from all over the world to submit news about their research to us for publication. We can’t relieve you of your academic publication requirements, since this isn’t a “peer reviewed” publication, but we can help spread the word about the significance and relevance of your work. Our aim is to bring to the general public, policy makers, and those in the field, a wider view of the “oceanscape” than might be otherwise readily available. Today’s marine science is at the very center of current efforts to understand the key forces of nature and man at work on our environment. There may be no other more important scientific research going on today.
At Marine Science Today, we write about stories in five principal categories: People, Policy, Technology, Marine Biology and Physical Oceanography. The latter two categories are collective categories meant to pool stories about life in the oceans, and the physical processes, including undersea geology, chemistry and physics. Please send us your stories and illustrations (remembering the old adage about a picture being worth a thousand words) and we’ll get them published for you here. We subscribe to the highest canon of journalistic ethics and will insist on fair, accurate and timely reporting. While you will see advertising and sponsorships here on Marine Science Today, we explicitly refuse to accept such advertising in exchange for editorial content. There are too many publications still out there that are happy to trade their content for a couple of ads. We won’t do that, so you can trust that the content here is motivated only by the best news judgment possible.
You may subscribe on our front page, or through your own favorite blog reader. Our website automatically publishes “feeds” to these readers. Just copy our main address into your blog reader’s subscription window and the reader will do the rest. You can also follow us on Twitter, or like us on Facebook for story updates, fun facts, links and more. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, or just want to find out how to submit your materials for publication, stop by our Contact page and send us a message. We’ll get back to you right away. We do need to hear from you about our stories. We want to know if they’re the right stories to cover; if you notice mistakes, or simply have something to add to the discussion. There is plenty of room for all to join so don’t hesitate.
Welcome again to Marine Science Today.
