  1. Mystery of phytoplankton survival in nutrient-poor pacific

    Upwelling in the eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean provides essential nutrients for the region’s microscopic plants, but iron – a key ingredient that facilitates nitrogen consumption – is in short...
  2. High levels of microplastics found in Northwest Atlantic fish

    A new study finds 73 percent of mesopelagic fish caught in the Northwest Atlantic had microplastics in their stomachs -- one of the highest levels globally. Typically living at depths of 200-1,000...
  3. Geophysicists and atmospheric scientists partner to track typhoons' seismic footprint

    A remarkable collaboration between atmospheric science and geophysics could change the way we think about storms and seismicity, and could lead to an answer to the often-asked 'Are hurricanes getting...
  4. Hurricanes Irma and Maria temporarily altered choruses of land and sea animals

    Audio recordings of Hurricanes Irma and Maria's passage over Puerto Rico document how the calls of coastal critters changed in response to the deadly storms. The hurricanes caused a major disruption...
  5. Key to predicting climate change could be blowing in the wind

    Dust that blew into the North Pacific Ocean could help explain why the Earth's climate cooled 2.7 million years ago, according to a new study.

  6. Rapid evolution of a calcareous microalgae

    Laboratory experiments are easy to control and reproduce but are insufficient to mimic the complexity of natural ecosystems. In contrast, experiments under real conditions in nature are much more...
  7. NASA's longest running survey of ice shattered records in 2017

    Last year was a record-breaking one for Operation IceBridge, NASA's aerial survey of the state of polar ice.

  8. Ocean winds influence seal pup migration

    Scientists have confirmed what native Alaskans have observed for centuries -- maritime winds influence the travel patterns of northern fur seal pups. New research shows strong winds can potentially...
  9. Shifting shorelines at Lake Tahoe caused by ancient lava dams

    Pleistocene basaltic lavas form a small volcanic field that was erupted from seven vents in the northwestern Lake Tahoe basin. Most of these lavas were erupted above the water and produced lava flows...
  10. Snapping shrimp may act as 'dinner bell' for gray whales off Oregon coast

    Scientists have for the first time captured the sounds of snapping shrimp off the Oregon coast and think the loud crackling from the snapping of their claws may serve as a dinner bell for eastern...

    Why the seafloor starts moving

    When the seabed loses its stability and starts to move, it often happens in much larger dimensions than landslides ashore -- and at slopes with very low gradients. At the same time, discplacement of...
  12. Innovative Restoration of Coral Reefs Helps Protect Caribbean Islands

    Researchers have measured the protective role of coral reefs and field-tested a solution that reduces coastal risks by combining innovative engineering with restoration ecology.

  13. Sea level rise accelerating: acceleration in 25-year satellite sea level record

    Global sea level rise is not cruising along at a steady rate per year, but rather accelerating a little every year like a driver merging onto a highway.

  14. Tiny fossils, huge landslides: Are diatoms the key to Earth's biggest slides?

    The biggest landslides on Earth aren't on land, but on the seafloor. These mega-slides can move thousands of cubic kilometers of material, and sometimes trigger tsunamis. Yet, remarkably, they occur...
  15. Recordings spout secrets behind blue whale behavior

    Researchers are using underwater microphones to interpret and characterize the calls of blue whales swimming through Southern California's oceans, revealing new insights into the behavior of these...
  16. Deep-sea fish use hydrothermal vents to incubate eggs

    An international team of researchers have discovered egg cases of deep-sea fish near hydrothermal vents. The team believes that deep-sea skates, a relative of sharks and rays, use the warm water near...
  17. First scientific expedition to newly exposed Antarctic ecosystem

    A team of scientists heads to Antarctica this week (14 February) to investigate a mysterious marine ecosystem that’s been hidden beneath an Antarctic ice shelf for up to 120,000 years.**

  19. Why did gas hydrates melt at the end of the last ice age?

    Large amounts of the greenhouse gas methane are locked up as solid gas hydrates in the continental slopes of ocean margins. Their stability depends on low temperatures and high pressure. However,...

    Mysterious lives of narwhals

    Narwhals are some of the most elusive creatures in the ocean, spending most of their lives in deep water far from shore. But new research may shed a bit of light on these enigmatic marine mammals.

  21. Influence of increasing carbon dioxide levels on the seabed

    Subseabed CO2 storage is a potential future climate change mitigation technology. In a holistic approach, this study presents how leaking CO2 affects sandy seabed habitats and their inhabitants....
  22. A one-two punch may have helped deck the dinosaurs

    A record of volcanism preserved along ancient mid-ocean ridges provides evidence for heightened worldwide magmatic activity 66 million years ago just after the Chicxulub meteor struck Earth,...
  23. Who's your daddy? Good news for threatened sea turtles

    A groundbreaking study of sea turtle nests and hatchlings using paternity tests to uncover 'who are your daddies?' is the first to document multiple paternity in loggerhead sea turtle nests in...

    Sea ice algae blooms in the dark

    Researchers have measured a new world record: Small ice algae on the underside of the Arctic sea ice live and grow at a light level corresponding to only 0.02 percent of the light at the surface of...
  25. Sea floor uplift after last ice age causes methane release in the Arctic today

    Present-day release of methane from an area of the Arctic Ocean is an effect of the uplift of the sea floor, rather than anthropogenic ocean warming, a new study states.
