Split westerly winds over Europe – A breakthrough by an international project led by Department of Geosciences

Europe, even located at the mid-high latitude at 40-70oN, the autumn and winter are mild and comfortable. Such pleasant weather is regulated by the warm and humid westerly winds from the North Atlantic Ocean. During the 15th to 19th century, Europe experienced the coldest winters over the last ten thousand years, known as the “Little Ice Age” (LIA). The LIA was suggested to be caused by volcanic eruptions and low solar activity. However, the detailed climate pattern in Europe remains unclear.Dr. Hsun-Ming Hu, the first author, and Prof. Chuan-Chou Shen,…

Exploring global pollution and cycling of mercury using ocean migratory fish

Profs. Chun-Mao Tseng and Jen-Chieh Shiao from the Institute of Oceanography, NTU, and the US cooperative colleagues worked together as the mercury research team (referred to Team Mercury (Hg) hereinafter). The research provides them to initiate a new tool of the mercury accumulation rate (MAR) using top predators to examine global patterns in the cycling and pollution of Hg across the world's oceans. It also confirms the unchanging truth of "You are what you eat, and You have what you are" since time began. The results of this study, published…
