  3. Warming temperatures could trigger starvation, extinctions in deep oceans

    Researchers from 20 of the world's leading oceanographic research centers today warned that the world's largest habitat -- the deep ocean floor -- may face starvation and sweeping ecological change...
  4. Study targets warm water rings that fuel hurricane intensification in the Caribbean S

    A new study deployed 55 aircraft ocean instruments from the National Oceanographic Atmospheric Administration's WP-3D aircraft. The purpose of the scientific mission was to measure ocean temperature,...
  5. Hot spots of marine biodiversity most severely impacted by global warming

    A new study aimed at identifying areas of highest conservation priority in the world's oceans found six 'hot spots of marine biodiversity' that are severely impacted by climate change and fishing...
  6. Professor examines effects of climate change on coral reefs, shellfish

    Professor is studying how a variety of marine organisms are responding to changes in their environment. Focusing on reef-building corals and other shelled creatures that are threatened by increasing...
  7. Impacts of mass coral die-off on Indian Ocean reefs revealed

    Warming seawaters, caused by climate change and extreme climatic events, threaten the stability of tropical coral reefs, with potentially devastating implications for many reef species and the human...
  8. More warm-dwelling animals and plants as a result of climate change

    Since 1980, populations of warm-dwelling species in Germany have increased. The trend is particularly strong among warm-dwelling terrestrial species, as shown by the most comprehensive study across...
  9. Local weather impacts melting of one of Antarctica's fastest-retreating glaciers

    Local weather plays an important part in the retreat of the ice shelves in West Antarctica, according to new research.

    Climate-driven permafrost thaw

    In bitter cold regions like northwestern Canada, permafrost has preserved relict ground-ice and vast glacial sedimentary stores in a quasi-stable state. These landscapes therefore retain a high...

    Whale-ship collisions

    Scientists and government officials met at the United Nations today to consider possible solutions to a global problem: how to protect whale species in their most important marine habitats that...
  12. Underwater seagrass beds dial back polluted seawater

    Seagrass meadows -- bountiful underwater gardens that nestle close to shore and are the most common coastal ecosystem on Earth -- can reduce bacterial exposure for corals, other sea creatures and...
  13. How an Ice Age paradox could inform sea level rise predictions

    New research findings explain an Ice Age paradox and add to the mounting evidence that climate change could bring higher seas than most models predict.

  14. Scientists report ocean data from under Greenland's Petermann Glacier

    Based on data from the first ocean sensors deployed under Greenland's Petermann Glacier, researchers report that the floating ice shelf is strongly coupled, or tied, to the ocean below and to the...
  15. Global ocean de-oxygenation quantified

    The ongoing global change causes rising ocean temperatures and changes the ocean circulation. Therefore less oxygen is dissolved in surface waters and less oxygen is transported into the deep sea....
  16. New pathway for Greenland meltwater to reach ocean

    Cracks in the Greenland Ice Sheet let one of its aquifers drain to the ocean, new NASA research finds. The aquifers, discovered only recently, are unusual in that they trap large amounts of liquid...
  17. Canadian glaciers now major contributor to sea level change, study shows

    Ice loss from Canada's Arctic glaciers has transformed them into a major contributor to sea level change, new research has found. From 2005 to 2015, surface melt off ice caps and glaciers of the...
  18. Risk of rapid North Atlantic cooling in 21st century greater than previously estimate

    The possibility of major climate change in the Atlantic region has long been recognized and has even been the subject of a Hollywood movie: The Day After Tomorrow. To evaluate the risk of such...
  19. Some marine creatures may be more resilient to harsher ocean conditions than expected

    As the world continually emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the oceans are taking a hit, absorbing some of it and growing more acidic. Among other effects, scientists have found that coral...
  20. Banned chemicals from the '70s found in the deepest reaches of the ocean

    Crustaceans from the deepest ocean trenches found to contain ten times the level of industrial pollution than the average earthworm, scientists have shown.

  21. Marine bacteria produce an environmentally important molecule with links to climate

    Scientists have discovered that tiny marine bacteria can synthesize one of Earth's most abundant sulfur molecules, which affects atmospheric chemistry and potentially climate. This molecule,...
  22. New study helps explain how garbage patches form in the world's oceans

    A new study on how ocean currents transport floating marine debris is helping to explain how garbage patches form in the world's oceans. Researchers developed a mathematical model that simulates the...

    Are drones disturbing marine mammals?

    Marine researchers have made sure that their research drones aren't disturbing their research subjects, shows a new report. And they're hoping that others will follow their example to help protect...
  24. Cold plates and hot melts: New data on history of Pacific Ring of Fire

    The movements of Earth's tectonic plates shape the face of our planet. The sinking of one plate beneath another causes volcanism and earthquakes. Scientists have been able to drill and investigate...
  25. Litter levels in the depths of the Arctic are on the rise

    The Arctic has a serious litter problem: in just 10 years, the concentration of marine litter at a deep-sea station in the Arctic Ocean has risen 20-fold, according to researchers.
