Phylogenetic analysis of all currently identified species of yeti crabs reveals a common ancestor, and possibly more vulnerability to environmental changes.
Research modeling the path of nitrogen in soil and groundwater shows it will take longer for nitrogen recovery to unfold—but also shows efforts are working.
New research has revealed that herring larvae seem to benefit from limited rises in CO2 levels in water that cause zooplankton to thrive, offering more food.
Using synthetic biology, researchers have identified a key biological mechanism in phytoplankton that is disrupted by ocean acidification.
New research suggests that we may be overestimating how many species are tolerant of hypoxia, and that many species may soon be threatened.
A newly created computer model reveals the catastrophic effects of unrestrained global warming that will exist by 2300 without immediate, decisive action.
This March, an expedition off the central Canadian coast captured and livestreamed never before seen views of the deep waters and reefs in the areas with a specialized camera.
Researchers reveal a model showing how ocean acidification affects corals’ ability to thicken, leaving them vulnerable and more breakable.
Research on tide pools on the west coast reveals that marine vegetation may act as a buffer against increasing acidity of ocean water, protecting shellfish.
A team of researchers has developed a way to determine global ocean temperature using atmospheric noble gas ratios.
New research indicates that the acidification and warmer temperatures caused by climate change negatively impact marine food webs and biodiversity.
Researchers are measuring radium isotopes from Arctic Shelves to determine how fast melting is taking place and how much the ocean’s chemistry is changing.
Research from the UN’s GO2NE working group reveals that no-oxygen dead zones in oceans are rapidly growing, threatening marine life and the atmosphere.
Researchers used NCAR model simulations incorporating sea surface, ocean current and other data to improve La Niña multi-year drought impact predictions.
Research into nano-copper reveals no additional toxic effects, suggests a host of new research questions, and offers novel technique.
Scientists from the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium have been documenting a Gulf of Mexico dead zone for more than thirty years.
Where in-situ sensors and boats struggle in monitoring nearshore shallows, sensor-toting aerial drones are emerging as promising tools for the job.
Researchers stationed in Greenland tracked the fate of glacial meltwater as it wormed its way around the island nation to determine effects on productivity.
The Environmental Monitor recently asked Northeastern University’s Brian Helmuth about his work on robomussels and tidal ecosystems.
A study led in part by researchers at Duke University maps potential losses to coral reef ecosystems with predicted sea level and temperature rises.
