    Satellites have been mapping the upper part of the Earth magnetic field by collecting data for three years and found some amazing features about the Earth’s crust. The result is the release of...
  3. Dead zones may threaten coral reefs worldwide

    Dead zones affect dozens of coral reefs around the world and threaten hundreds more according to a new study. Watching a massive coral reef die-off on the Caribbean coast of Panama, they suspected it...
  4. Last remnant of North American ice sheet on track to vanish

    The last piece of the ice sheet that once blanketed much of North America is doomed to disappear in the next several centuries, says a new study.

  5. From entanglement to invasions of alien species: the harm caused by marine litter

    Marine litter is a threat to the marine ecosystem, human health and economic activities. A new report sheds light on the many effects of litter in our oceans, and highlights the severity and scale of...
  6. China's severe winter haze tied to effects of global climate change

    China's severe winter air pollution problems may be worsened by changes in atmospheric circulation prompted by Arctic sea ice loss and increased Eurasian snowfall -- both caused by global climate...
  7. Extensive ice cap once covered sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia

    The sub-antarctic island of South Georgia -- famous for its wildlife -- was covered by a massive ice cap during the last ice age, new research indicates.

  11. When the sea ice melts, juvenile polar cod may go hungry

    Polar cod fulfil a key role in the Arctic food web, as they are a major source of food for seals, whales and seabirds alike. But the polar cod themselves might soon be the hungry ones.

  13. Increase in extreme sea levels could endanger European coastal communities

    Massive coastal flooding in northern Europe that now occurs once every century could happen every year if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, according to a new study.

  14. Louisiana wetlands struggling with sea-level rise 4 times the global average

    Without major efforts to rebuild Louisiana's wetlands, particularly in the westernmost part of the state, there is little chance that the coast will be able to withstand the accelerating rate of...
  15. Rapid decline of Arctic sea ice a combination of climate change and natural variabili

    The dramatic decline of Arctic sea ice in recent decades is caused by a mixture of global warming and a natural, decades-long atmospheric hot spot over Greenland and the Canadian Arctic.

  16. Red tides can be predicted, new study shows

    For over a century scientists have been trying to understand what causes red tides to form in coastal areas seemingly out of nowhere. Using a new, novel technique, that mystery is finally being...
  17. Boaty McBoatface submersible prepares to dive into the abyss on first Antarctic missi

    Boaty McBoatface is joining ocean scientists on an expedition to study some of the deepest and coldest abyssal ocean waters on earth - known as Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) - and how they affect...
  18. Looming crisis of the much decreased fresh-water supply to Egypt's Nile delta

    A multi-year study of Egypt's Nile Delta places the country's major breadbasket at serious risk. The soil-rich delta evolved as the result of natural conditions involving the Nile's fresh water flow...
  19. NASA's aerial survey of polar ice expands its Arctic reach

    For the past eight years, Operation IceBridge, a NASA mission that conducts aerial surveys of polar ice, has produced unprecedented three-dimensional views of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets,...
  20. Massive rogue waves aren't as rare as previously thought

    Scientists have captured new information about extreme waves, as one of the steepest ever recorded passed by the North Sea Ekofisk platforms in the early morning hours of Nov. 9 2007.

  21. Underwater mountains help ocean water rise from abyss

    At high latitudes, such as near Antarctica and the Arctic Circle, the ocean's surface waters are cooled by frigid temperatures and become so dense that they sink a few thousand meters into the...
  22. Cold extermination: One of greatest mass extinctions was due to an ice age and not to

    The Earth has known several mass extinctions over the course of its history. One of the most important happened at the Permian-Triassic boundary 250 million years ago. Over 95% of marine species...
  23. Going deep to learn the secrets of Japan's earthquakes

    The 11 March 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake was the largest and most destructive in the history of Japan. Scientists are hard at work trying to understand just what made it so devastating.

  24. NASA study improves forecasts of summer Arctic sea ice

    The Arctic has been losing sea ice over the past several decades as Earth warms. However, each year, as the sea ice starts to melt in the spring following its maximum wintertime extent, scientists...
  25. What global climate change may mean for leaf litter in streams and rivers

    Carbon emissions to the atmosphere from streams and rivers are expected to increase as warmer water temperatures stimulate faster rates of organic matter breakdown. But a new study suggests these...
