A lot of marine life may face extinction in the next 100 years as our industrialized world puts more and more pressures on ocean species, according to new research.
Scientists may have just gotten some encouragement in their search for other habitable worlds. According to new research, super-Earths likely harbor long-lasting oceans, a hallmark recipe for life on far-away planets.
A satellite dubbed the "Ferrari of space" is giving ocean current maps a boost. By providing the most accurate model of ocean circulation yet, the technology can help scientists better understand Earth's oceans and their role in global warming, according to recent research.
Summer 2014 saw the warmest ocean temperatures ever recorded, according to a new report, proving that global warming is not slowing down.
A team of scientists have identified far infrared energy as a new driver behind Arctic warming and melting sea ice in the region, according to recent research.
The ocean, a massive expanse of water that today covers 70 percent of the planet, flooded ancient Earth earlier than thought, scientists reported Thursday - just 14 million years after the start of the solar system.
Oceans in the Southern Hemisphere, which make up 60 percent of the world's oceans, are warming far worse than previously thought, according to a new study.
Though many recent media reports note that the Earth's warming climate is to blame for Greenland's glacier melt - in addition to other melting ice forms like those in Antarctica - a new study shows that oceans may contribute in large part to these glaciers' demise.
