A new model predicts that as ocean temperatures rise, carbon-storing sea grass may disappear and even go extinct in some ecosystems.
International World Climate Research Programme/Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (WCRP/IOC) Open Science Conference on Regional Sea Level Rise and Its Impacts; New York, New York, 10–14 July 2017
Workshop on Water and Environmental Global Challenges: International Water Infrastructures and Security; Miami, Florida, 23–25 May 2017
The resilience of coastal communities depends on an integrated, worldwide coastal monitoring effort. Satellite observations provide valuable data on global to local scales.
A field survey in Australia links rugged seafloor terrain to erosion-causing waves.
Shoreline environments show more promise than other marine ecosystems for mitigating climate change, the analysis shows.
Results of the first geographically based estimates of river nutrient supply indicate that 75% of dissolved nitrogen and 80% of phosphorus reach the open ocean.
8th Coastal Altimetry Workshop; Konstanz, Germany, 23–24 October 2014
A new examination of nitrogen in the coastal waters off the Pacific Northwest shows that the Salish Sea delivers a large fraction of nutrients to shelf waters.
New models of saltwater-freshwater mixing in coastal aquifers show how salinity varies throughout the year, with implications for what happens to groundwater pollutants before they reach the ocean.
