  1. US ocean observation critical to understanding climate change, but lacks long-term na

    Ocean observing systems are important as they provide information essential for monitoring and forecasting changes in Earth's climate on timescales ranging from days to centuries. A new report finds...
  2. Life goes on for marine ecosystems after cataclysmic mass extinction

    One of the largest global mass extinctions did not fundamentally change marine ecosystems, scientists have found.

  3. Climate shifts shorten marine food chain off California

    Environmental disturbances such as El Niño shake up the marine food web off Southern California, new research shows, countering conventional thinking that the hierarchy of who-eats-who in the ocean...
  4. Maintaining fish biomass the key to conserving reef fish biodiversity

    A new study has found that conserving fish diversity in Madagascar's coral reef systems may depend on maintaining fish biomass above critical levels.

  5. Scientists see order in complex patterns of river deltas

    River deltas, with their intricate networks of waterways, coastal barrier islands, wetlands and estuaries, often appear to have been formed by random processes, but scientists see order in the...
  6. Fossil coral reefs show sea level rose in bursts during last warming

    Scientists have discovered that Earth's sea level did not rise steadily when the planet's glaciers last melted during a period of global warming; rather, sea level rose sharply in punctuated bursts. ...
  7. Ice stream retreats under a cold climate

    Warmer ocean surface triggered the ice retreat during The Younger Dryas.

  8. Waves in lakes make waves in the Earth

    Scientists report that small seismic signals in lakes can aid science. As a record of wave motion in a lake, they can reveal when a lake freezes over and when it thaws. And as a small, constant...
  9. Keratin, proteins from 54-million-year-old sea turtle show survival trait evolution

    Researchers have retrieved original pigment, beta-keratin and muscle proteins from a 54-million-year-old sea turtle hatchling. The work adds to the growing body of evidence supporting persistence of...
  10. Giant sea bass worth more alive as undersea wonders than as commercial catch

    An investigation of the different economic values of giant sea bass finds they are worth more alive as undersea wonders than as commercial catch.

  11. Melting ice makes the sea around Greenland less saline

    For the first time, ocean data from Northeast Greenland reveals the long-term impact of the melting of the Greenland ice sheet. The observed increase in freshwater content will affect the conditions...
  12. Baltic clams, worms release as much greenhouse gas as 20,000 dairy cows

    Ocean clams and worms are releasing a significant amount of potentially harmful greenhouse gas into the atmosphere, scientists have shown.

  13. Risk of tsunamis in Mediterranean Sea has been overstated, say experts

    A review of geological evidence for tsunamis during the past 4500 years in the Mediterranean Sea has revealed that as many as 90 per cent of these inundation events may have been misinterpreted by...
  14. Warming seas could lead to 70 percent increase in hurricane-related financial loss

    Hurricane-related financial loss could increase more than 70 percent by 2100 if oceans warm at the worst-case-scenario rate predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, according to a...
  15. Geologic evidence is the forerunner of ominous prospects for a warming earth

    While strong seasonal hurricanes have devastated many of the Caribbean and Bahamian islands this year, geologic studies on several of these islands illustrate that more extreme conditions existed in...

    Marine snowfall at the equator

    Animal excrements and parts of dead organisms constantly sink from the surface of the oceans towards the deep sea. This particle flow plays an important role in the global carbon cycle and...
  17. Huge energy potential in open ocean wind farms in the North Atlantic

    Because wind speeds are higher on average over ocean than over land, wind turbines in the open ocean could in theory intercept more than five times as much energy as wind turbines over land. This...
  18. Mars study yields clues to possible cradle of life

    The discovery of evidence for ancient sea-floor hydrothermal deposits on Mars identifies an area on the planet that may offer clues about the origin of life on Earth. The research offers evidence...
  19. 12,000 years ago, Florida hurricanes heated up despite chilly seas

    Category 5 hurricanes may have slammed Florida repeatedly during the chilly Younger Dryas, 12,000 years ago. The cause? Hurricane-suppressing effects of cooler sea surface were out-weighed by side...
  20. Fish shrinking as ocean temperatures rise

    One of the most economically important fish is shrinking in body weight, length and overall physical size as ocean temperatures rise, according to new research by LSU Boyd Professor R. Eugene Turner...
  21. Ancient humans left Africa to escape drying climate

    Humans migrated out of Africa as the climate shifted from wet to dry about 60,000 years ago, according to new paleoclimate research. What the northeast Africa climate was like when people migrated...

  25. Antarctica: Return of the Weddell polynya supports Kiel climate model

    Currently, winter has still a firm grip on Antarctica. At this time of the year, the Weddell Sea usually is covered with a thick layer of sea ice. In spite of the icy temperatures in the region,...
