Most of the world's reefs are dying, so scientists are creating fake ones to spur rehabilitation.
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority have detected abnormally high sea surface temperatures on the UNESCO world heritage site, indicating that another massive bleaching event will soon hit the already dead reef.
Just last week, Antarctica had another major iceberg break. It happened in the erratic Pine Island Glacier. The dramatic event was captured by NASA satellites.
Climate change strikes again.
The average oxygen concentration in the world's ocean has decreased by more than two percent over the last 50 years.
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.
Gases like methane break down relatively quickly in the atmosphere, but it turns out their negative effects can linger for hundreds of years.
New data supports controversial NOAA study that said the climate change slowdown doesn't exist.
Findings revealed that intensifying winds in the region may be influencing the turbulence of the current, rather than its flow rate.
A new study revealed that coral reef fish that are unable to adapt to the warming ocean are forced to relocate to cooler parts of the ocean.
For so long, the world’s seas have gotten the brunt of the heat – literally. Climate change has heated the ocean to dangerously high temperatures and a recent analysis compiled by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) listed the disastrous consequences to come, from super storms to change in marine life behavior.
A new study revealed that ocean warming, not high air temperature, is the main reason behind the glacier retreat.
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.
Most health experts agree: Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for human health. However, what they may not know is that these same acids are also vital for maintaining a healthy ocean. Now new research has revealed that climate change may be gradually taking these essential acids away.
