  1. New Eocene fossil data suggest climate models may underestimate future polar warming

    A new international analysis of marine fossils shows that warming of the polar oceans during the Eocene, a greenhouse period that provides a glimpse of Earth's potential future climate, was greater...
  2. Seabed mining could destroy ecosystems

    Mining on the ocean floor could do irreversible damage to deep-sea ecosystems, says a new study of seabed mining proposals around the world.

  3. Global temperature targets will be missed within decades unless carbon emissions reve

    New projections by researchers could be the catalyst the world has sought to determine how best to meet its obligations to reduce carbon emissions and better manage global warming as defined by the...
  4. Heat loss from the Earth triggers ice sheet slide towards the sea

    In North-East Greenland, researchers have measured the loss of heat that comes up from the interior of the Earth. This enormous area is a geothermal 'hot spot' that melts the ice sheet from below and...
  5. Recent advances in understanding coral resilience are essential to safeguard coral re

    The most urgent course of action to safeguard coral reefs is to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, but concurrently there is also a need to consider novel management techniques and previously...
  6. Temporary 'bathtub drains' in the ocean concentrate flotsam

    An experiment using hundreds of plastic drifters in the Gulf of Mexico shows that rather than simply spread out, as current calculations would predict, many of them clumped together in a tight...
  7. Global analysis reveals how sharks travel the oceans to find food

    You’ve heard of “you are what you eat” - this research shows that for sharks, the more relevant phrase is*“you are where you ate.”

  8. Release of ancient methane due to changing climate kept in check by ocean waters

    Ocean sediments are a massive storehouse for the potent greenhouse gas methane. But methane only acts as a greenhouse gas if and when it reaches the atmosphere. Environmental scientists recently set...
  9. Coping with climate stress in Antarctica

    Some Antarctic fish living in the planet's coldest waters are able to cope with the stress of rising carbon dioxide levels the ocean. They can even tolerate slightly warmer waters. But they can't...
  10. California sea lion population rebounded to new highs

    California sea lions have fully rebounded under the protection of the Marine Mammal Protection Act, with their population on the West Coast reaching carrying capacity in 2008 before unusually warm...
  11. Weather anomalies accelerate the melting of sea ice

    Researchers reveal why Arctic sea ice began to melt in the middle of winter two years ago -- and that the increased melting of ice in summer is linked to recurring periods of fair weather.

  12. Drones confirm importance of Costa Rican waters for sea turtles

    A new drone-enabled population survey -- the first ever on sea turtles -- shows that larger-than-anticipated numbers of turtles aggregate in waters off Costa Rica's Ostional National Wildlife Refuge....
  13. Robots aid better understanding of phytoplankton blooms

    Phytoplankton blooms are one of the most important factors contributing to the efficiency of the carbon pump in the North Atlantic Ocean. To better understand this phenomenon, researchers have...
  14. New application for acoustics helps estimate marine life populations

    Researchers have for the first time have used hydroacoustics as a method for comparing the abundance of fishes within and outside marine protected areas (MPAs).

  15. Sanchi oil spill contamination could take three months to reach mainland

    Water contaminated by the oil currently leaking into the ocean from the Sanchi tanker collision is likely to take at least three months to reach land, and if it does the Korean coast is the most...
  16. Tagged tiger shark proving unstoppable

    For more than a decade, researchers have been tagging and tracking sharks in order to study their migratory patterns and more. One tiger shark - Andy - is now the longest-ever tracked tiger shark,...
  17. Rising CO2 is causing trouble in freshwaters too, study suggests

    As carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere rise, more CO2 gets absorbed into seawater. As a result, the world's oceans have grown more acidic over time, causing a wide range of well-documented...
  18. Machine learning predicts new details of geothermal heat flux beneath the Greenland I

    A new article uses machine learning for the first time to craft an improved model for understanding geothermal heat flux -- heat emanating from the Earth's interior -- below the Greenland Ice Sheet. ...
  19. Body size of marine plankton, currents keys to dispersal in ocean

    A new international study found that the size of plankton, and the strength and direction of currents, are key to how they are dispersed in the ocean -- much more so than physical conditions...
