NOAA declares unusual mortality event due to a large number of dead humpback whales washing along the Atlantic coast.
Nearly 15 percent of the humpback whales that come to feed in the southern Gulf of Maine every spring collide with boats and other marine vessels.
The footage showed the horrifying moment the tornado swept across the parking lot then tossing the 4,000-pound car several feet high.
Climate change denier Kenneth Haapala was allegedly removed from the NOAA transition team after employees expressed their disappointment over the decision. Administration representative argued that Haapala no longer has a position in the team.
A survey conducted by the country's Environment Ministry revealed that 70 percent of the coral in the Sekisei lagoon area has already fallen victim to coral bleaching.
New data supports controversial NOAA study that said the climate change slowdown doesn't exist.
Geologists from Oregon State University and the University of North Carolina revealed new insights on studying the processes of land-based volcanoes in the annual American Geophysical Union fall meeting in San Francisco.
The Great Barrier Reef is reportedly experiencing its worst damage via coral bleaching by far in history. The culprit is none other than the significant increase in water temperatures, which is record high as well. More than half of the coral population in the northern section has perished, while the central and southern centers have been reported to be in better health.
Scientists were surprised to discover hydrothermal vents at the Chamorro Seamount, a place deep under the sea that was initially thought to be a dead zone. Their delight can be heard in a video shared by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
DSCOVR or Deep Space Climate Observatory, the first space weather satellite of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), will start monitoring weather storms in space starting July 27.
Advanced solar-powered tracking devices allow researchers to follow previously hard-to-study animals as they feed, socialize or migrate. In turn, this data could be used to make better wildlife and habitat management decisions.
North Atlantic right whales were given some more elbow room in critical foraging and breeding habitats off the coast of New England, Florida and South California. These new designations were made by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in hopes of further aiding the whales' recovery.
The recent discover that an endangered population of Killer whales living in the Pacific Northwest preferred eating salmon in summer may lead to improved targeted conservation practices.
After tagging over 500 bluefin tuna, researchers have determined that the internal temperature of Bluefin Tuna can be used to indentify where the fish feed and how impact ocean temperatures impact them. This discovery will help conservationists better protect the threatened species.
