NTU Institute of Oceanography conducts pioneering Seaglider observations, revealing striking interleaving layers in the Kuroshio Current east of Taiwan

Institute of Oceanography conducted the first Seaglider observations revealed striking interleaving layers in the Kuroshio east of Taiwan Source:MOST In 2015, with a vision of future observational technologies, the MOST sponsored the Marine Exploration Instrument Center at National Taiwan University (NTU) to purchase a Kongsberg Seaglider under the MOST granted integrated project “Observations of the Kuroshio Transport and Variability (OKTV).” The glider was aimed to collect data of hydrography, dissolved oxygen, fluorescence (can be converted to chlorophyll concentration) and back scatter of light in the water. Tasked with testing and…

A 2700-yr tropical rainfall record of the central Indo-Pacific The low-latitude tropics inhabited by 40% of the global population experiences the most important rainfall zone on the planet, known as the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), which accounts for one-third of the world’s total rainfall. Taiwan is located on the northern edge of this realm. This zone is also featured by the most important biosphere and the most complicated biodiversity. Vigorous regional atmospheric circulation transports heat and moisture to the middle and high latitudes. The slight hydrological change or small displacement…

Scientists unraveling the molecular details of DNA recombination regulation   An international team from National Taiwan University (NTU) and Tokyo Institute of Technology identified how DNA recombinational repair is regulated in a recent work published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS). To repair damaged DNA, recombinases bind to DNA in order to initiate the repair work. However, the recombinase-DNA complex must be sufficiently stable to carry out the work. Scientists from NTU and Tokyo Tech work together to identify how another…
