 Given the recent surge of interest in engineering designs for plastic clean up of the oceans, I have decided to review the top ten plastic clean up concepts currently out there.
1. The Whirlbird:  The design relies upon driving winds through massive propellors on top of the ship to tur… http://deepseanews.com/2014/07/the-top-10-engineering-designs-to-clean-up-plastics-in-the-oceans-you-wont-believe-what-we-found/

Few things give me greater joy than a model.  No not those waifs that strut the fashion runways but mathematical models.  Sure my pulse increases with the mention of deep sea, body size, food (in the scientific sense), snails, or combination thereof.  Stop you had … http://deepseanews.com/2014/07/the-predictions-of-this-model-kills-my-love-of-models/

 I’ve been absolutely fascinated by 2 things recently: amazing images of typhoons and animated gifs. In regards to the former, check out this amazing 3D movie dissecting Typhoon Neoguri’s rainfall (and giving me the spins).

 So, the flower hat jellyfish pretty much looks like someone painted it while tripping on acid. It doesn’t just have tentacles on the edges, no way man, its got a tentacle party going all up over its body. It doesn’t just have pink and purple colors, it’s got blue and orange and green … http://deepseanews.com/2014/07/outta-sight-jelly-babies-discovered-with-a-black-light/

For many ocean invertebrates, the first stage of life occurs as tiny larvae in the plankton.  The toughness of the planktonic larval life has caused many scientists to wax poetically, as we tend to do on subjects of invertebrates. As noted by Emery in 1973, these larvae face a “wall of mouths” r… http://deepseanews.com/2014/07/females-crabs-only-eat-their-own-young-when-their-hungry/
