Forecasts of carbonate chemistry in coastal ecosystems determined from seasonal robotic measurements can improve fisheries management and help mitigate short-term ocean acidification events.
A new study quantifies the abundance of single and bonded H2O molecules in the ocean.
Ocean acidification “provides a case study of a way that we can drive forward bipartisan action on an environmental issue,” says an Ocean Conservancy scientist.
A thermodynamic function of the potential spicity is defined and it is orthogonal to the potential density in the least square sense.
A method for estimating potential spicity, a thermodynamic variable in oceanography, provides a new way to describe contrasts in watermass properties.
With coastal oceans around the world changing from the effects of urbanization, rising carbon dioxide levels, and climate warming, recent work begins to find new land-sea linkages.
Widespread declines in ocean oxygen concentrations are now being reported with authors offering quite different explanations. Which ones are correct?
A new derived algorithm for particle backscattering and multi-year VIIRS climatology improves ocean color parameterization in highly turbid coastal and inland waters.
Researchers probe millennia-old deep-ocean sponges for links between ocean nutrients and climate.
A recent paper in Reviews of Geophysics discussed increasing ocean alkalinity as an alternative method of carbon sequestration in response to climate change.
