Forests of fast-growing kelp influence the chemistry of the water in which they live. A new study evaluates their potential to ameliorate ocean acidification in sensitive coastal ecosystems.
The Czech Republic’s Hranice Abyss is more than twice as deep as researchers thought.
Las plataformas de perforación de petróleo- y gas-mar adentro son hábitats ricos para peces. Eliminarlas por completo resultaría en una pérdida del 95% de biomasa de peces, revela una nueva investigación.
The Lagrangian method applied to tracking water transport between the Atlantic and Pacific basins reveals a larger contribution by mid-latitude westerly winds across Eurasia than previously thought.
A new tool that reconciles modeling and paleoclimate data builds confidence that tropical Pacific corals reliably archive natural variability in the El Niño–Southern Oscillation climate pattern.
Understanding the fundamental physics of the Madden‐Julian Oscillation, a phenomenon that occurs over the Indian and Pacific Oceans, remains a challenge in tropical atmospheric research.
Seismic surveys find evidence of a superplume in Earth’s mantle that fueled ancient megaeruptions in the Pacific.
A next-generation network of seismic and wave sensors in the southwestern Pacific will warn coastal residents of an approaching tsunami before they see the wave.
Evidence from mud, charcoal, and feces suggests humans arrived in East Polynesia during the driest period in 2 millennia.
Satellite data helped scientists locate the volcanic source of a pumice raft floating in the South Pacific Ocean, illustrating their promise in locating and monitoring undersea eruptions.
