Mission Water Magazine Issue 4


Sunken History

A team of international scientists recently surveyed the Normandy coast to reveal how the greatest naval invasion in history unfolded. Utilizing the latest technologies and the world’s most advanced software from HYPACK, the team surveyed 511 km2 of sea floor, producing an enormous 11 TB of data.


Rebuilding in the Wake of Maria

On September 20th, 2017, Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico. Following the hurricane, volunteer teams from around the world worked alongside Puerto Rican communities – together battling stifling heat and humidity to clear roads, reopen schools, restore basic amenities, and rebuild homes.


Running Hot & Cold

To its natives, Iceland is a mystical island, peopled with huldufólk—hidden folk, or elves. Some ecologists may be inclined to believe in at least a certain kind of Icelandic magic, the kind that resulted in the remarkable Hengill region, a landscape coursing with crystalline streams that flow at dramatically different temperatures.


Oceans Under Seige

The North Pacific Ocean gyre is massive, made up of four currents that move in a clockwise direction around an area of 20 million square kilometers (7.7 million square miles). Similar in nature to the effects of a whirlpool, ocean gyres draw floating or suspended material into the area, much of which is man-made plastic.


Eye of the Storm

Dr. Phil Klotzbach is a Research Scientist in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. He leads the development of hurricane forecasts issued during peak months of the year. In an Interview with Mission: Water, Klotzbach reviews the science behind 2017’s devastating hurricane season.


Watching Waves

In today’s global economy, the shipping industry serves as a silent partner to connect businesses and customers around the world. According to the International Maritime Organization (IMO), over 90% of trade is transported via sea. The vast majority of the food we eat, clothes we wear, and devices we use in daily life spent time on a ship.
