Milky seas have fascinated sailors and scientists alike. Now we know how they form.
Researchers are developing an artificial intelligence (AI) that could assess climate change tipping points. The deep-learning algorithm could act as an early warning system against runaway climate change.
"This two-year experimental mesocosm study is unprecedented for climate change research and is the first one to examine the diversity of the entire coral reef community from microbes and algae to the corals and fishes," said Chris Jury, the author who developed and maintained the mesocosm system.
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The world cephalopod catch, which includes octopuses and squid, has increased significantly over the past six decades.
Bones of the massive endangered marine animal could one day hang in a museum
New South Wales Australia - There are eyes on coastal erosion across Port Macquarie-Hastings beaches thanks to a new initiative called CoastSnap.
Fishermen in Cornwall have teamed up with scientists to study the species, which can grow up to 12ft in length and have returned to UK waters after more than 60 years.
Coral cover on shallow reef systems (0 to 30 meters) in the Florida Keys has declined over the past several decades, punctuated by severe losses during coral disease outbreaks and bleaching events.
Most coral reef biodiversity consists of tiny organisms living deep within the three-dimensional reef matrix. New research reveals that the species which dominate experimental coral reef communities shift due to climate change, but the total biodiversity does not decline under future ocean conditions of warming and acidification predicted by the end of the century.
Fresh eyes can change the world, and a world stressed by a pandemic, climate change, and inequity is one more ripe for change than we have ever experienced before. That’s why, after a five-year break, Popular Science is bringing back the Brilliant 10: an annual roster of early-career scientists and engineers developing ingenious approaches to problems across a range of disciplines.
William & Mary's Virginia Institute of Marine Science has partnered with JASON Learning for the Beyond the Plastic Bottle Challenge, an educational activity in which teams of students create a sustainable plan that reduces the debris associated with one source of microplastic pollution in their community.
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York have demonstrated the effectiveness of using drones to locate freshwater sources at Easter Island.
Coral reefs around the world are under threat because of climate change, overfishing, pollution, and more. Now, researchers reporting in the journal One Earth on September 17 offer the first comprehensive global look at what these impacts on coral reefs mean for ecosystem services, the ability of the reef to provide essential benefits and services to humans.
EUREKA Calif. — Humboldt State University will join a coastal resiliency research hub led by Oregon State University and the University of Washington focused on the impact of earthquakes, coastal erosion, and climate change on coastal communities in the Pacific Northwest.
EDGEWATER, Md. — In a forest dense with maple, beech and poplar trees just a few miles from the Chesapeake Bay, researchers are simulating a flood of the future.
UTA teams up with coastal town to monitor climate change
The research was conducted by scientists at CSIRO, Australia's national science agency; Ocean Conservancy, a U.S.-based advocacy non-profit; and the PADI AWARE Foundation, a non-profit public charity that drives global ocean conservation through local action.
As the ocean changes due to climate change, the pressure is on scientists and others to find a way to determine how the ocean will adapt and if people can help protect it.
Protecting and restoring coastal wetlands can help countries around the globe and U.S. states advance their climate goals
A new study finds dramatic declines in coral reef cover, biodiversity and fish abundance
Sinking seaweed could sequester a lot of carbon, but researchers are still grappling with basic questions about reliability, scalability and risks.
Scientists are taking a fresh look at New Zealand's risk from island volcanoes and underwater landslides, in a series of new projects focused on some of our lesser-known tsunami-makers.
NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) is pleased to announce a Fiscal Year 2022 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for a project that will expedite the development and implementation of harmful algal bloom (HAB) control strategies.
During a recent late summer weeknight, residents of several northeast Ohio Lake Erie towns were surprised by a strong foul smell. As reported by The Plain Dealer (Cleveland.com), residents fearing a potential dangerous gas leak quickly started calling their local fire departments.
