Hi guys! i'm french and i lived in french west indies (guadeloupe) for 2 years and i've seen a horrible thing : mountains of algas called sargasses are washing up on every beautiful beaches of this beautiful island. and it's the same problem in every caribean islands. I've heard that the origine of this trouble is probably the chemicals produced by Brazil and bought by amazonian river, mixed with global warming. Is there some scientist whom have any last information or explanations about this phenomenon ?

Like any plant. This stuff grows and sheds. Those islands are near where they grow. Because of the bladders in these plants, they float on the sea on grand masses until they wash ashore some Caribbean beach.

It is theorized that the fertilizers that farmers put on their fields are washing down the Amazon and causing these plants to grow more, but the Amazon is putting out a lot of natural fertilizer already (like any major river). The tiny bit that farmers are adding is rather insignificant. There is very little civilization along the length of the Amazon.

This is a natural phenomenon that hits the beaches of the Caribbean every so often. Why Science magazine decided to consider this an unusual event is beyond me. Perhaps they are trying to push the Church of Green and the Church of Global Warming again.

...There is something that can be considered because of where the Sargasso Sea is. Some hurricanes go right over it. Nutrients might be supplied off of the ocean floor. Winds on the north side of a hurricane are stronger so this could help to move the sargasse south.
..The Sargasso Sea is defined by a re-circulation gyre which is what could be moving the Sargasse into the Caribbean. That would be using the logic associated with Occam's Razor.

The Sargasso sea isn't moving. It's still in the same place. Seaweed that drifts out of the sea (due to storms, etc) will drift around the sea until it strikes land, like the Caribbean or Bermuda.

One of the effects humanity is having is that we are using loads of fertilizer. This is often washed into the sea. It makes life more abundant.

Personally I think that's a good thing.

If you wish to counter it I suggest that you consider creating fish nurseries where populations of fish can breed, reserved no-fishing areas, with possibly additional reefs added, old cars will do or concrete from demolished buildings and car tyres, which will tend to eat the algae.

They should be looking at this as an opportunity, not as problem. You can turn it into a biofuel industry, or use it for animal feed, or fertilizer. It can even be used in drug manufacturing and cosmetics.

They can harvest the tourist beaches first, just to make them look nicer, but think of what it can do for the economy of the islands inundated with this brown algae.

Jesus you think a sea with a mono-culture of stinking algae with dead fish floating upside down in it, a sea that makes you retch just to go near it is a good thing? just because in total the weight of living things increases.
