In January 2022, the largest volcanic eruption of this century, which was submarine, led to a dramatic phytoplankton bloom north of the Tongan island of Tongatapu. Three scientists from UHM (CMORE's Benedetto Barone and Dave Karl, and Earth Sciences Prof. Ken Rubin), with a colleague from Oregon State University, recently revealed that the bloom of microscopic marine life covered an area nearly 40 times the size of the island of Oʻahu within 48 hours after the eruption.
Paul Wessel named American Geophysical Union's (AGU) 2022 Greg Leptoukh Lecture recipient, awarded by the Earth and Space Science Informatics section. They chose Paul because of his pioneering effort in developing widely used open-source software for the Earth science community, such as the globally recognized Generic Mapping Tools (GMT).
