  1. Sea-level rise projections made hazy by Antarctic instability

    It may take until the 2060s to know how much the sea level will rise by the end of this century, according to a new analysis. The study is the first to link global and local sea-level rise...
  2. East Antarctic Ice Sheet has history of instability

    The East Antarctic Ice Sheet locks away enough water to raise sea level an estimated 53 meters (174 feet). It's also thought to be among the most stable, not gaining or losing mass even as ice sheets...
  3. Fish and ships: Vessel traffic reduces communication ranges for Atlantic cod, haddock

    Scientists studying sounds made by Atlantic cod and haddock at spawning sites in the Gulf of Maine have found that vessel traffic noise is reducing the distance over which these animals can...
  4. View Post

    Large volume submarine landslides, triggered by the inception and growth of submarine volcanos, represent among the largest mass movements of sediment on Earthís surface. These landslides could...
  5. Multi-year submarine-canyon study challenges textbook theories about turbidity curren

    The most extensive, long-term effort to monitor turbidity currents ever attempted has just been completed. The results of this two-year project challenge existing paradigms about what causes...
  6. 'Smoke rings' in the ocean could 'suck-up' small creatures and send them 'flying'

    Researchers have spotted the equivalent of smoke-rings in the ocean which they think could 'suck-up' small marine creatures and carry them at high speed and for long distances across the ocean.

  7. Tiny ice losses at Antarctica's fringes can accelerate ice loss far away

    It is known that the ice shelves surrounding the continent regulate the ice flow from the land into the ocean. Now scientists found that also melting near the fringes and in the midst of the ice...
  8. World-first uses satellites, ocean models to explain Antarctic seafloor biodiversity

    In a world-first, a research team has used data collected by satellites and an ocean model to explain and predict biodiversity on the Antarctic seafloor.

  9. Extreme fieldwork, climate modeling yields new insight into predicting Greenland's me

    A new study brings together scientists from land hydrology, glaciology and climate modeling to unravel a meltwater mystery. Researchers discovered that some meltwater from the lakes and rivers atop...
  10. Marine organisms can shred a plastic bag into 1.75 million pieces, study shows

    A single plastic grocery bag could be shredded by marine organisms into 1.75 million microscopic fragments, according to new research.

  11. Researchers establish long-sought source of ocean methane

    A significant amount of the methane naturally released into the atmosphere comes from the ocean. This has long puzzled scientists because there are no known methane-producing organisms near the...
  12. Satellite tracking provides clues about South Atlantic sea turtles' 'lost years'

    Biologists have been tracking the movements of sea turtle yearlings in the South Atlantic Ocean, and have come up with some surprising results.

  13. Unique field survey yields first big-picture view of deep-sea food webs

    A new article documents the first comprehensive study of deep-sea food webs, using hundreds of video observations of animals caught in the act of feeding off the Central California coast. The study...
  14. Future arctic sea ice loss could dry out California

    Arctic sea ice loss of the magnitude expected in the next few decades could impact California's rainfall and exacerbate future droughts, according to new research.

  15. Scientists track sharks by picking up DNA fragments from the sea

    Traces of DNA in the sea can be used to monitor shark populations, marine ecologists have shown. Current methods of baiting, hooking and filming sharks, rays and other large fish are invasive and...
  16. New gene-based model suggests, for microbes, it's not who you are but what you do

    A new model simulates the impact of microbial activities on the chemistry in the North Atlantic and suggests that the evolution of a metabolic function rather than the evolution of an individual...
  17. Southern Ocean drives massive bloom of tiny phytoplankton

    Scientists have uncovered the ocean conditions that support a massive summertime bloom of algae that spans 16 percent of the global ocean. Known as the Great Calcite Belt, this dense group of a...
  18. Feces from entangled North Atlantic right whales reveals 'sky-high' stress levels

    North Atlantic right whale scientists found that whales who undergo prolonged entanglements in fishing gear endure 'sky-high hormone levels,' indicating severe stress, which researchers discovered...
  19. Why are there no sea snakes in the Atlantic?

    There is a glaring gap in sea snakes' near-global distribution: the Atlantic Ocean. Biologists chalk up the absence of sea snakes in the Atlantic to geography, climate and timing.

  20. Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula reveals a cryptic methane-fueled ecosystem in flooded cave

    In the underground rivers and flooded caves of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, where Mayan lore described a fantastical underworld, scientists have found a cryptic world in its own right.

  21. Decline in atmospheric carbon dioxide key to ancient climate transition

    A decline in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) levels led to a fundamental shift in the behavior of the Earth's climate system around one million years ago, according to new research led by the...
  22. Less life: Limited phosphorus recycling suppressed early Earth's biosphere

    The amount of biomass -- life -- in Earth's ancient oceans may have been limited due to low recycling of the key nutrient phosphorus, according to new research.
