  1. Forces that threaten sensitive coastlines

    Wind-driven expansion of marsh ponds on the Mississippi River Delta is a significant factor in the loss of crucial land in the Delta region, according to new research. The study found that 17 percent...
  2. The formation of gold deposits in South Africa

    The Witwatersrand basin in South Africa hosts the largest known gold repository on Earth -- but how was it formed? Scientists were able to figure out how parts of the Earth's largest gold deposits...
  3. Coral reefs struggle to keep up with rising seas, leave coastal communities at risk

    In the first ecosystem-wide study of changing sea depths at five large coral reef tracts in Florida, the Caribbean and Hawai'i, researchers found the sea floor is eroding in all five places, and the...
  4. Canary in the kelp forest: Sea creature dissolves in today's warming, acidic waters

    The one-two punch of warming waters and ocean acidification is predisposing some marine animals to dissolving quickly under conditions already occurring off the Northern California coast, according...

    Water is streaming across Antarctica

    In the first such continent-wide survey, scientists have found extensive drainages of meltwater flowing over parts of Antarctica's ice during the brief summer.

  7. Arctic river ice deposits rapidly disappearing

    Climate change is causing thick ice deposits that form along Arctic rivers to melt nearly a month earlier than they did 15 years ago, a new study finds.

  8. Models, observations not so far apart on planet's response to greenhouse gas emission

    Recent observations suggest less long-term warming, or climate sensitivity, than the predicted by climate models. But the mismatch is resolved by factoring in that Earth is still in the early stages...
  9. Glacier shape influences susceptibility to thinning

    Researchers have identified glaciers in West Greenland that are most susceptible to thinning in the coming decades by analyzing how they're shaped. The research could help predict how much the...
  10. Migration from sea-level rise could reshape cities inland

    Researchers estimate that approximately 13.1 million people could be displaced by rising ocean waters, with Atlanta, Houston and Phoenix as top destinations for those forced to relocate.

  11. Methane seeps in the Canadian high Arctic

    Cretaceous climate warming led to a significant methane release from the seafloor, indicating potential for similar destabilization of gas hydrates under modern global warming. A field campaign on...
  12. New study emphasizes the relative scarcity of lake water

    What is the volume of water in lakes on Earth? Using a mathematical analysis, researchers now suggest that the mean depth of lakes is 30 per cent lower than previously estimated. Shallower lakes...
  13. With magnetic map, young eels catch a 'free ride' to Europe

    Each year, young European eels make their way from breeding grounds in the Sargasso Sea to coastal and freshwater habitats from North Africa to Scandinavia, where they live for several years before...
  14. Polar glaciers may be home to previously undiscovered carbon cycle

    Microbes in streams flowing on the surface of glaciers in the Arctic and Antarctic may represent a previously underestimated source of organic material and be part of an as yet undiscovered 'dynamic...
  15. Assessing noise in Southern California whale habitat

    A new study assessing the underwater soundscape off Southern California found that blue, fin and humpback whales experience a range of acoustic environments, including noise from shipping traffic as...
  16. Unraveling the drivers of large iceberg movement

    When, in the foreseeable future, a tabular iceberg nearly seven times the size of Berlin breaks off the Larsen C Ice Shelf in the Antarctic, it will begin a journey, the course of which climate...
  17. Three quarters of deep-sea animals make their own light

    In the first quantitative analysis of deep-sea bioluminescence, researchers show that three quarters of the animals in Monterey Bay from the surface down to 4,000 meters deep can produce their own...

    First oceans may have been acidic

    New research has looked to the distant past -- all the way back to Earth's earliest oceans. A newly developed model suggests that the early oceans, right around the time that life originated, were...
  19. The Arctic Ocean is becoming more like the Atlantic

    The eastern Arctic Ocean is becoming more like the Atlantic Ocean, a new study combining remote sensing and local data finds.

  20. Tibet sediments reveal climate patterns from late Miocene, 6 million years ago

    Researchers surveyed sediment samples from the northern Tibetan Plateau's Qaidam Basin and constructed paleoclimate cycle records from the late Miocene epoch of Earth's history, which lasted from...
  21. Isotopes with ocean circulation information

    The distrution of a radioactive Thorium isotope is important in multiple aspects of oceanograpy. Now one researcher has revisited the issue on processes influencing the distribution in the water...
  22. Microbes on ice sheets produce bioreactive carbon that is exported to downstream ecos

    Glaciers and ice sheets have recently been considered significant sources of organic carbon and provide nutrients to downstream marine ecosystems.

  23. Close connection between deep currents and climate

    The Labrador Sea in the northwestern Atlantic is one of the key regions of the global ocean circulation. Scientists have been operating an array of oceanographic observatories there since 1997. It...
  24. Rock exposed in World War I trenches offers new fossil find

    An unusual fossil find is giving scientists new ideas about how some of the earliest animals on Earth came to dominate the world's oceans.

  25. Exploring ocean waters to characterize atmospheric aerosols

    Aerosols are collections of fine particles, either biological or of other types, in suspension in a gaseous medium. They play a major role in cloud formation and therefore have a strong impact on...
