  3. 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...
  4. 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,...
  5. 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...
  6. 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. ...
  7. 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...
  8. Strong support for ocean protection: Study

    People around the world strongly support ocean conservation measures, according to a new study of public perceptions of marine threats and protection.

  17. The ocean is losing its breath -- here's the global scope

    In the past 50 years, the amount of water in the open ocean with zero oxygen has gone up more than fourfold. In coastal water bodies, including estuaries and seas, low-oxygen sites have increased...
  18. Scientists find surprising evidence of rapid changes in the Arctic

    Scientists have found surprising evidence of rapid climate change in the Arctic: In the middle of the Arctic Ocean near the North Pole, they discovered that the levels of radium-228 have almost...
  19. Scientists get early look at hurricane damage to Caribbean coral reefs

    Coral reefs off St. John, part of the US Virgin Islands, suffered severe injury during the storms, say the scientists who traveled there in late November to assess the damage -- the first step in...
