An approach that combines field observations and satellite inferences of Secchi depth could transform how we assess water clarity across the globe and pinpoint key changes over the past century.
Researchers study how oceans respire carbon, reexamining a critical part of the global carbon cycle.

Oceanographers probe the impact of deep swirling vortices on phytoplankton.
Small, slow-sinking organic particles may play a bigger role than previously thought in the transport of carbon below the surface ocean.
Dense algae populations in the Great Calcite Belt could cause carbon dioxide release from the ocean into the atmosphere.
A nitrite-oxidizing enzyme may work in reverse for some microbes in the Antarctic autumn.
An expanding zone of shallow, oxygen-depleted water in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean may be vertically restricting the habitat of this important source of food, according to a recent study.
A computer simulation shows a net increase in primary production by phytoplankton if climate change were mitigated by 2200 but also indicates big changes in the makeup of those species.
Yearlong study reveals seasonal changes in oxygen levels, nutrient availability, and plankton growth.
