The Biden Administration is making great strides in advancing offshore wind in the U.S.
New research suggests an increase in major hurricanes is actually a rebound from a drop in tropical activity from the 1960s to 80s, but the findings don’t necessarily mean climate change is not affecting the frequency or intensity of the storms.
Every coast in the U.S. is facing rapidly increasing high tide floods thanks to a “wobble” in the moon’s orbit working in tandem with climate change-fueled rising sea levels.
“The eWolf represents everything Crowley stands for: innovation, sustainability and performance,” said Chairman and CEO Tom Crowley, as Crowley Maritime announced that it is to build and operate what will be the first fully electric harbor tugboat in the U.S.
Top oil shipping companies say they have tightened operational guidelines and deployed technology to prevent accidental breaches of sanctions, as the countries hit by ever tougher restrictions fight back with elaborate strategies to dodge them.
On 5 August, 2020, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission adopted ecological reference points (ERPs) for Atlantic menhaden, changing how the stock’s quota was managed.
Esri has opened access to its collection of cartographic boundary files and demographic data, known as the National Geospatial Data Assets, in a push to support decision-making in disaster response, infrastructure development and other areas of national concern.
The US will see a dramatic increase in high-tide coastal flooding in the coming decade, according to NASA. This increase will be powered by the interaction between the moon’s gravitational influence (which causes tides) and higher sea levels caused by climate change.
In the late 1800s, scientists were stumped by the “yellow cells” they were observing within the tissues of certain temperate marine animals, including sea anemones, corals and jellyfish. Were these cells part of the animal or separate organisms? If separate, were they parasites or did they confer a benefit to the host?
A revolutionary new class of amphibious vehicle will transform the search for lost vessels on the ocean floor, says marine archaeologist Dr Robert Ballard
Rising 30 feet and more above the blue waters of Lake Powell, the gray, crusty band of mussel shells reflects an invasion that has swept through the watery ecosystem practically unimpeded.
More than four years before the explosive went off beside the aircraft carrier Gerald R. Ford on June 18, a team of scientists began making plans for the ship’s shock trials. Their goal, however, was not battle readiness -- they were trying to protect marine wildlife.
Home to nearly 40 percent of the U.S. population, America’s coasts and Great Lakes are central to life in this country. Americans look to the coast for economic opportunity, relaxation, and spiritual renewal.
LAWRENCE — A new paper from a lead author based at the University of Kansas finds wetlands constructed along waterways are the most cost-effective way to reduce nitrate and sediment loads in large streams and rivers.
All the battery metals we need to power a billion electric vehicles could be lying on the floor of the Pacific Ocean — but collecting them and turning them into EV batteries is a major challenge.
A reoccurring environmental nightmare in Lake Erie can be fixed, but governments need the will to do it, says a Canadian Great Lakes researcher.
Are we getting storms earlier each year? Are there more hurricanes than there used to be? Are they getting more severe?
By 2100, scientists estimate, at least 400 million people could live in high-risk areas
“The Brilliant Abyss” and “The Lure of the Beach” urge action to safeguard the world’s oceans and coastlines – along with the animal life found there.
It’s a good thing the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has plenty of time to prepare for its next generation of polar-orbiting weather satellites — because the changes the agency is contemplating are dramatic.
This umbrella service could make it easier for communities to find information on climate risks, from drought to floods
Coastal communities across the world are increasingly facing up to the huge threats posed by a combination of extreme storms and predicted rises in sea levels as a result of global climate change.
The U.S. Department of Energy has announced that as much as $27 million in federal funding will be provided for research and development projects focused on wave energy.
This summer, OpenIJ – a consortium of construction companies building the IJmuiden lock – will deliver the largest sea lock in the world to Rijkswaterstaat.
