A study by the Seabird Ecology Group of the University of Barcelona in which the ICM has participated reveals that nearly 50% of the food resources of these birds today come from landfills or meat industries in Girona, Spain.
The intense growth of microscopic algae that are part of the marine plankton leads to changes in the colour of the water.
- The ICM participates in a National Geographic project that will study the microbiome of the Paraná River
The initiative seeks to develop new artificial intelligence models to analyse the microorganisms’ diversity and function in this river.
A new study by researchers of the ICM and the STRI alerts that the accumulation of nutrients and fertilisers could further deplete shallower waters of oxygen, leading to the death of many coral reef species, if conditions do not improve.
Data quality is key for developing scientific evidence-based environmental policies.
A new study led by the ICM has revealed new variables to be taken into account, such as fault morphology, in tsunami early warning systems.
