A new study sheds light on a possible explanation of the so-called “global warming hiatus” trend – the temporary slowdown of global mean surface temperatures that happened between 1998 and 2013.
Warming water temperatures and increased carbon dioxide are causing a population growth among a species of shrimp-like crustaceans.
Is it too late to save the world’s oceans? The world is hoping it’s not. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) just passed Motion 53, which aims to name at least 30 percent of the global ocean area “highly protected” by 2030.
A new study suggests that super typhoons devastating Asian countries such as China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines have become stronger since the '70s due to climate change.
Vulnerable coastal populations will be some of the most negatively affected by climate change, changing fishing practices now will help them survive.
Earlier this year, images surfaced of toxic algal blooms in Florida, caused by pollution dumped in a lake, making people sick, but there are other issues in the Ocean that are damaging our health.
Super Typhoon Nepartak is no anomaly. Rising oceanic temperatures are intensifying major currents, which will result in hotter and stormier weather over the next one hundred years.
A rare Pacific seahorse was recently caught on camera off the coast of California, likely brought to the area by unusually warm El Niño waters.
In a series of marine-disease studies, researchers have for the first time linked warming oceans to the rise of lobster shell disease in New England and to the sea star wasting disease plaguing the U.S. West Coast.
Thousands of blacktip sharks in a huge congregation were recently caught on-camera in South Florida.
Following the arrival of gentoo penguins along the West Antarctic Peninsula, native Adelie penguins have experienced population declines. However, researchers are unsure whether increased food competition among the two species or climate change is ultimately to blame.
Humpback whales are spending some extra time up north in Alaska this season. Experts say the whales are slow to arrive at breeding grounds in Hawaii because of possible food competition or El Niño disruptions.
In the dark, cold waters of both the Antarctic and Arctic oceans, sea spiders are growing larger than usual. Researchers say this phenomenon, known as polar gigantism, may or may not be attributed to the abundance of oxygen in the seawater.
Turbid or cloudy waters may help corals survive climate change by shading the iconic reefs from excess, damaging sun exposure.
Crocodiles may not be able to adjust to warming waters, researchers say. A recent study found saltwater crocodiles tend to take shorter dives when waters exceed 31.5 degrees Celsius. This could have significant impact on the species' survival.
