Mexico has begun a survey of the world's most endangered marine mammal, the vaquita porpoise of Mexico's Gulf of California. The scientific team will include Mexico, the U.S., Germany and the United Kingdom.
A study from the University of Guelph looked at the rivulus fish, which lives among mangroves from Florida to Brazil. It controls its own body temperature in warming water by taking great leaps.
A new study says that it's important for us to keep looking at the formation of sea ice in the North Pacific, because it is a significant driver in global temperature moderation.
Along with micro-beads, we've talked about commercial sunscreens and their effect on marine life. A recent study found that a chemical ingredient found in most sunscreens and roughly 3,500 products is killing young coral.
While parcels of ocean have recently been preserved, researchers from Oregon State University say that the proportion of marine preservation is still far behind that for land. They've laid out reasons why it's much cheaper to act now.
Hidden under Greenland’s ice sheet is an intricate natural "plumbing system" that regularly drains subglacial lakes, impacting ice sheet flow and sea level rise.
University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers recently developed a computer program that estimates the impact climate change could have on the Antarctic ice sheet.
Large dust storms carry valuable particles eastward to the Pacific Ocean for phytoplankton to feed on. Since this species naturally combats climate change, varying storm deposits could have a detrimental effect.
University of New Hampshire researchers have discovered they can use the chemical signatures found in the inner ear bones of winter flounder to help them trace the fish to their estuaries – a critical part of remedying their population decline.
European researchers modeled how a tsunami would impact the Eastern Mediterranean, by simulating earthquake conditions that would move either the sea bed or the water surface.
The climate records of calcite shells show that yesterday's Arctic--as in during the Ice Age--had warm water.
A new study may help explain why the famously rich waters of the Puget Sound are able to support such an abundance of life, including shellfish, salmon runs, and occasional pods of whales.
Scientists have discovered a new method that may save the world’s marine ecosystems by offsetting ocean acidification.
