Why Trace Metals Cling to the Ocean’s Skin
Metals within the millimeter-thick sea surface microlayer may impact ocean health and climate.
On the Origin of Infragravity Waves
Seafloor pressure sensor data show that long-period ocean surface waves radiating from the world’s shorelines are mostly reflected back to shore by the continental shelf edge.
Exploring a More Dynamic Arctic Icescape
A joint special issue presents new findings from a field campaign in the Arctic Ocean which highlights key processes that need to be taken into account to predict the future of the Arctic ice pack.
Multiple Choices Exist for Changing Ocean Oxygen Concentrations
Widespread declines in ocean oxygen concentrations are now being reported with authors offering quite different explanations. Which ones are correct?
Hurricanes and the Sea: It Takes Two to Tango
A new special issue of JGR: Oceans reveals the rich relationship between the ocean and tropical cyclones.
A Complete Picture of Southern Ocean Surface Circulation
For the first time, researchers combine estimates of sea surface height and circulation patterns in both ice-covered and ice-free regions of the Southern Ocean.
Unraveling Hemispheric Ocean Nitrate Supply Pathways
Subsurface measurements of nitrogen and oxygen isotope ratios in nitrate reveal a predominantly southern hemisphere supply of nitrate to the equatorial Pacific.
Advancing Satellite Ocean Color Observations
A new derived algorithm for particle backscattering and multi-year VIIRS climatology improves ocean color parameterization in highly turbid coastal and inland waters.
Chaos Beneath a Calm Sea
Seismic data help reveal fine-scale wave breaking, instability and turbulence in the ocean interior.
