  1. Marine species distribution shifts will continue under ocean warming

    Scientists using a high-resolution global climate model and historical observations of species distributions on the Northeast US Shelf have found that commercially important species will continue to...
  2. Tiny shells indicate big changes to global carbon cycle

    Experiments with tiny, shelled organisms in the ocean suggest big changes to the global carbon cycle are underway, according to a new study.

  3. Why the Sumatra earthquake was so severe

    An international team of scientists has found evidence suggesting the dehydration of minerals deep below the ocean floor influenced the severity of the Sumatra earthquake, which took place on Dec....
  4. The birth and death of a tectonic plate

    A new technique to investigate the underwater volcanoes that produce Earth's tectonic plates has been developed by a geophysicist.

  5. Going with the flow: The forces that affect species' movements in a changing climate

    Ocean currents affect how climate change impacts movements of species to cooler regions. A new study provides novel insight into how species' distributions change from the interaction between climate...
  6. Weathering of rocks a poor regulator of global temperatures

    Evidence from the age of the dinosaurs to today shows that chemical weathering of rocks is less sensitive to global temperature, and may depend on the steepness of the surface. The results call into...
  7. Transforming how complex marine data is synthesized

    Scientists are transforming how complex marine data from the Ocean Health Index is synthesized, communicated and used for coastal management.

  8. Iron deficiency restrains marine microbes

    Iron is a critical nutrient in the ocean. Its importance for algae and the nitrogen cycle has already been investigated in detail. Now a new discovery shows that microbes also need iron to process...
  9. Sea level as a metronome of Earth's history

    Sedimentary layers contain stratigraphic cycles and patterns that precisely reveal the succession of climatic and tectonic conditions that have occurred over millennia. Researchers have been working...
  10. GIS: A powerful tool to be used with caution

    A recent study provides a new perspective on the severe impacts of escalating climate change on the heritage resources of Canadian Arctic. Referring to the application of Geographic Information...
  11. 'Trojan fish': Invasive rabbitfish spread invasive species

    For some time, unicellular benthic organisms from the Indo-Pacific have been spreading in the Mediterranean. An international team of scientists has now found evidence that a possible path of...
  12. Climate change refuge for corals discovered (and how we can protect it right now)

    Scientists have discovered a refuge for corals where the environment protects otherwise sensitive species to the increasing severity of climate change.

    Refining the ocean's thermometer

    The chemistry of shells of plankton called foraminifera are a record of past climate. Recent experiments show magnesium levels vary in foram shells due to different growth rates during daily...
  15. How atmospheric waves radiate out of hurricanes

    Researchers believe they have found a new way to monitor the intensity and location of hurricanes from hundreds of miles away by detecting atmospheric waves radiating from the centers of these...
  16. No escaping ocean plastic: 37 million bits of litter on one of world's remotest islan

    The beaches of one of the world's most remote islands have been found to be polluted with the highest density of plastic debris reported anywhere on the planet, a new study shows. Despite being...
  17. Code of conduct needed for ocean conservation, study says

    A diverse group of the world's leading experts in marine conservation is calling for a Hippocratic Oath for ocean conservation -- not unlike the pledge physicians take to uphold specific ethical...
  18. Heat on for Australia's Great Barrier Reef when global temperatures hit 1.5C

    Scientists have modeled how extremes in precipitation, drought, extreme heat and ocean temperatures will change in Australia at global temperatures 1.5C and 2C above pre-industrial conditions. It...
  19. Importance of marine, coastal cultural ecosystem services

    Cultural ecosystem services reflect physical and cognitive interactions between humans and nature, and are increasingly recognized for providing experiences, capabilities and many other benefits to...

  21. What goes down, must come up: Stirring things up in the Earth's mantle

    New insights into the convection patterns of the Earth's mantle and its chemical makeup have been revealed. The new findings suggest that the mantle does not flow ubiquitously, as has been previously...
  22. Anticancer nanomaterials created by simulating underwater volcanic conditions

    Researchers have developed anticancer nanomaterials by simulating the volcano-induced dynamic chemistry of the deep ocean. The novel method enables making nanoclusters of zinc peroxide in an...
  23. Jurassic drop in ocean oxygen lasted a million years

    Dramatic drops in oceanic oxygen, which cause mass extinctions of sea life, come to a natural end -- but it takes about a million years.

  24. How plankton and bacteria shape ocean spray

    As the oceans ebb and flow, the resulting waves and splashes form tiny bubbles.The bubbles burst and release a vapor -- called sea spray aerosol -- into the air. This aerosol scatters sunlight and is...
  25. Teleconnection between the tropical Pacific and Antarctica

    The higher the seawater temperature in the tropical Pacific, the more likely ice breakup will occur in East Antarctica, according to researchers.
