New insights into the dynamics of ocean features known as deep chlorophyll maxima set the stage for better understanding of their role in carbon cycling.
Scientists have found a methane reservoir below the permafrost seabed of the Laptev Sea—a reservoir that could suddenly release large amounts of the potent greenhouse gas.
In a study of more than 200 sea turtles, researchers were surprised by six turtles that went their own way.
Recent research offers new insights into exchanges of water between the North Atlantic and the Nordic Seas, which play critical roles in the climate-regulating Atlantic overturning circulation.
Although warming oceans may make population booms and mass strandings more common, the species may ultimately be one of the beneficiaries of climate change.
An expanded nonmilitary hydrophone network provides new opportunities to understand the variability and trends of ocean sound and the effects of sound on marine organisms.
The Moon’s gravitational pull creates the tides, but its influence extends hundreds of meters below the sea surface too, influencing sensitive methane seeps in the seabed.
Remote sensing technology proves effective in monitoring key regions of the world’s oceans, where upwelling and other essential ecosystem services occur.
Researchers propose the creation of an anthropogenic vulnerability index to help guide conservation policy decisions.
A “timelines of risk” model shows when and where population collapse begins as sea ice wanes in our warming future.
