Aperiodic, southward deflection of the Kuroshio, a.k.a. the Kuroshio large meander, uplifts the nutrients in deep layers to induce offshore phytoplankton bloom.
Great Slave Lake’s huge cold water mass shielded it from impacts of the rapidly warming climate—until now.
The Arctic’s thinning sea ice allows more light to penetrate deeper into the ocean, holding zooplankton far beneath the surface.
The North Water polynya might not be as dependent on a sea ice bridge as previously thought, but not everyone is convinced.
Advances in data analysis help researchers spot shifting ocean colors, which could be associated with climate change.
Phytoplankton patches at an ocean front in the California Current System are found to originate from different coastal upwelling pulses.
In 2019, Tropical Cyclone Oma hovered over the Coral Sea in the South Pacific, leaving a massive algae bloom in its wake.
Scientists have developed a consensus guide of standard protocols for how best to measure oceanic primary productivity, a key component in Earth’s carbon cycle.
Researchers tracked plankton through a changing climate over 8 million years. Now, that knowledge is helping scientists understand the coming effects of warming oceans.
Bio-Argo floats and satellite altimeter data reveal that upwelling caused by confluent flow on the warm side of ocean fronts increases phytoplankton carbon and chlorophyll.
