  1. How a tiny sea animal feeds itself, and the ocean

    Dime-sized ocean organisms thought to graze on any particles in their path are actually picky eaters, and their food-filtering process may be vital to how organic materials are distributed from...
  2. One in ten historic coastal landfill sites in England are at risk of erosion

    There are at least 1,215 historic coastal landfill sites in England, mostly clustered around estuaries with major cities, including Liverpool, London, and Newcastle on Tyne. An investigation by...
  3. Study urges global-change researchers to embrace variability

    A new review article presents evidence that argues for a more nuanced approach to the design of global-change experiments -- one that acknowledges and purposefully incorporates the variability...
  4. Colorado River's connection with the ocean was a punctuated affair

    The Colorado River's initial trip to the ocean didn't come easy, but its story has emerged from layers of sediment preserved within tectonically active stretches of the waterway's lower reaches....
  5. Pacific Island countries could lose 50 -- 80% of fish in local waters under climate c

    Many Pacific Island nations will lose 50 to 80 percent of marine species in their waters by the end of the 21st century if climate change continues unchecked, finds a new study. This area of the...
  6. How a 'shadow zone' traps the world's oldest ocean water

    New research has revealed why the oldest water in the ocean in the North Pacific has remained trapped in a shadow zone around 2km below the sea surface for over 1000 years.

  7. Ice sheets as large as Greenland's melted fast in a warming climate

    New research shows that climate warming reduced the mass of the Cordilleran Ice Sheet by half in as little as 500 years, indicating the Greenland Ice Sheet could have a similar fate.

  8. Hot news from the Antarctic underground

    A new NASA study adds evidence that a geothermal heat source called a mantle plume lies deep below Antarctica's Marie Byrd Land, explaining some of the melting that creates lakes and rivers under the...
  9. Federal climate science report for U.S. released

    The newly released Climate Science Special Report describes current trends in the climate globally and for the U.S., and projects trends in temperature, precipitation, sea-level rise and Arctic sea...
  10. Intensifying winds could increase east Antarctica's contribution to sea level rise

    Totten Glacier, the largest glacier in East Antarctica, is being melted from below by warm water that reaches the ice when winds over the ocean are strong, according to research. The new findings are...
  11. Fifty-years of data from a 'living' oxygen minimum lab could help predict the oceans'

    Researchers have released 50 years' worth of data chronicling the deoxygenating cycles of a fjord off Canada's west coast, and detailing the response of the microbial communities inhabiting the...
  12. Versatile marine bacteria could be an influence on global warming, scientists discove

    Scientists have discovered that a 'rare' type of marine bacteria is much more widespread than previously thought -- and possesses a remarkable metabolism that could contribute to greenhouse gas...
  13. New Greenland maps show more glaciers at risk

    New maps of Greenland's coastal seafloor and bedrock beneath its massive ice sheet show that two to four times as many coastal glaciers are at risk of accelerated melting as had previously been...
  14. A nutrient mix makes phytoplankton thrive

    Unicellular photosynthetic microbes -- phytoplankton -- play a fundamental role in the global carbon cycle and fuel marine food webs. Globally, phytoplankton productivity is regulated by the...
  15. Are some natural environments more psychologically beneficial than others?

    Spending time in rural and coastal locations is more psychologically beneficial to individuals than time spent in urban green spaces, a new study reports.

  16. Future volcanic eruptions could cause more climate disruption

    Major volcanic eruptions in the future have the potential to affect global temperatures and precipitation more dramatically than in the past because of climate change, according to a new study.

  17. Virtual coasts improve understanding of possible coastal planning outcomes

    Newly developed immersive geographic visualization tool is the first of its kind to use audio and visual animations and an underwater perspective. This enables people to assess the aesthetic aspects...
  18. The oceans were colder than we thought

    A team of researchers has discovered a flaw in the way past ocean temperatures have been estimated up to now. Their findings could mean that the current period of climate change is unparalleled over...
  19. Yellowstone spawned twin super-eruptions that altered global climate

    A new geological record of the Yellowstone supervolcano's last catastrophic eruption is rewriting the story of what happened 630,000 years ago and how it affected Earth's climate. This eruption...
  20. Marine microbiology: Scavenging to survive below the seafloor

    Microorganisms living in the sediments buried below the seafloor obtain their nutrients by using secreted enzymes to degrade adsorbed detritus. A new study shows that in order to survive for long...
  21. 'Scars' left by icebergs record West Antarctic ice retreat

    Thousands of marks on the Antarctic seafloor, caused by icebergs which broke free from glaciers more than ten thousand years ago, show how part of the Antarctic Ice Sheet retreated rapidly at the end...
  22. Marine species threatened by deep-sea mining

    Underwater mining poses a great danger to animals inhabiting the seafloors. A new research study describes the most abundant species, a sponge, which can now be used to regulate mining operations and...
  23. Ice sheets may melt rapidly in response to distant volcanoes

    Volcanic eruptions have been known to cool the global climate, but they can also exacerbate the melting of ice sheets, according to a new paper.

  24. Microplastics in the Baltic have not risen for 30 years

    The concentration of microplastics in water and fish from the Baltic Sea has been constant for the past 30 years, despite a substantial increase in plastic production during the same period, report...
  25. Sea-level rise, not stronger storm surge, will cause future NYC flooding

    Rising sea levels caused by a warming climate threaten greater future storm damage to New York City, but the paths of stronger future storms may shift offshore, changing the coastal risk for the...
