A historic moment has arrived for the Everglades. If we only recognize it and seize it.
The Northwest Atlantic Shelf is one of the fastest-changing regions in the global ocean, and is currently experiencing marine heat waves, altered fisheries and a surge in sea level rise along the North American east coast. A new article reveals the causes, potential predictability and historical context for these types of rapid changes.
Seagrass meadows provide homes for young fish and protected creatures like seahorses and stalked jellyfish.
DENVER/April 20, 2021 – Stranded sea turtles’ care could be improved through a new study of their stress hormone levels. Morris Animal Foundation-funded researchers at the New England Aquarium (NEAq) are in the early stages of a project to determine how hormones relate to the physical health of rescued Kemp’s ridley and leatherback sea turtles, both endangered species.
The super typhoon reached extreme intensity earlier in the year than any storm in the satellite era.
Peatlands, woodlands and coastal marine habitats are all vital in helping the UK reach net-zero emissions by 2050, but efforts need to be made to improve biodiversity conservation and restoration.
Growing up in Gainesville and gliding through Florida’s rivers as a kayak guide, Kacy Rodriguez has always been drawn to water. Spending the summers exploring the lush rainforests of El Yunque National Forest in the mountains of Puerto Rico and swimming in Mosquito Bay, the brightest bioluminescent bay in the world, only strengthened that affinity.

The 21st century serves as an inflection point of acceleration of climate instability caused by human-generated greenhouse gases, as CO2 emissions increase well beyond the rate of the prior century.
Scientists of the JPI Oceans project ‘MiningImpact’ are embarking on a six-week expedition to the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone in the Pacific. Their goal is to carry out independent scientific monitoring of the test of a pre-prototype nodule collector that will be conducted in parallel from a second vessel by the Belgian company Global Sea Mineral Resources.
To commemorate Earth Day 2021, AZoCleantech looks at coral reef damage and if restoration projects are enough to save our underwater ecosystems. Earth’s coral reefs are in danger, with climate change and environmental damage already responsible for the ongoing destruction of the world’s reefs. Restoration attempts are underway, but are they enough to halt the death of these important living ecosystems?
Extreme rain events predicted to become more common with human-caused global warming not only wreak havoc on land — the runoff from these increasingly severe storms also threatens Hawaii’s coral reefs.
Lake Okeechobee discharges will resume in short bursts over two days this week so government scientists can study the flow of sediment that pollutes coastal estuaries.

Researchers conducted the first large-scale survey of the microbiota present in the seamount's ferromanganese crusts, describing bacteria and archaea involved in the nutrient cycle and formation of metals
The science has long been clear that our changing climate will lead to more flooding and hotter summer temperatures. But might climate change also lead to other, less expected extreme weather, including sudden hard freezes in places like Texas, with increasing frequency?
Algae at the Port Mayaca Lock & Dam this week was nearly three times more toxic than the minimum level at which the federal government deems it unsafe.
The most advanced beach monitoring system in the world has been implemented along 30km of Gold Coast coastline to help manage the famous beaches, which attract more than 47 million locals and tourists each year.
A new study illuminates the secrets of the North Pacific loggerhead turtles’ epic migration between their birthplace on the beaches of Japan and reemergence years later in foraging grounds off the coast of Baja California.
Environmentalists are increasingly concerned about the sustainability of Florida’s waterways after the deaths of more than 600 manatees so far this year, three times the average rate.
