Snails usually lumber along on their single fleshy foot; but not sea butterflies (Limacina helicina). These tiny marine molluscs gently flit around their Arctic water homes propelled by fleshy wings that protrude out of the shell opening.
TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2015 -- Climate change has led to warming of lakes at a rapid rate, even faster than the air or the oceans, according to York U Biologist Sapna Sharma, a lead author of a new global study.
Fishermen dumping small dolphins so they can fill quota with more profitable specimens as annual Taiji dolphin hunt begins, says Sea Shepherd Marine conservationists have claimed that fishermen in the Japanese town of Taiji are dumping the corpses...
Every two to seven years, an unusually warm pool of water -- sometimes two to three degrees Celsius higher than normal develops across the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean to create a natural short-term climate change event.
Dieses Jahr ist ein El-Nino Jahr. Mal wieder.Und zwar ein heftiges! Die Ausbreitung des warmen Wassers im Pazifik reicht weit, die Temperaturen sind weit über der Normaltemperatur. Korallen bleichen weltweit aus - die 3. weltweite Korallenbleiche, seit solche Ereignisse aufgezeichnet werden. Ein großes Ereignis, dass die NASA aus dem All studiert.
Oceanography for Everyone Southern Fried Science Three years ago, Kersey Sturdivant and myself launched an ambitious crowdfunding project–the OpenCTD–with the plan to produce a low-cost, open-source CTD for thousands of dollars less than the...
Climate change is affecting wildlife in a lot of serious, and occasionally weird, ways. It’s destroying the icy habitats of polar bears and walruses. It’s driving fish species out of their normal habitats and taking away the food supplies of seals, sea lions and whales. It’s even causing bumblebees’ tongues to shrink.
Now, scientists have revealed another unexpected climate effect: It may be disrupting the sex ratio among baby sea turtles.
Proliferation of thick brown algae is affecting fishing, tourism and marine life on both sides of the Atlantic, say scientists The pristine white beaches may not be as famous as those of the Caribbean, but their unspoilt beauty makes them a haven...
Next-generation machines can penetrate kilometres below surface in days rather than years.
These speedy tools take roughly a week, rather than years, to penetrate several kilometres of ice. They blitz through the topmost layers of ice to reach the ancient freeze beneath, where tiny bubbles of trapped air serve as a time capsule of environments long vanished.
Tiny archipelago seeks to create world’s sixth-largest area to be fully protected from fishing or drilling The tiny western Pacific archipelago of Palau has approved the creation of a marine sanctuary twice the size of Mexico.
An unprecedented analysis of North Pacific ocean circulation over the past 1.2 million years has found that sea ice formation in coastal regions is a key driver of deep ocean circulation, influencing climate on regional and global scales.
If humans continue spewing carbon pollution into the atmosphere, the oceans are going to get a lot simpler — meaning fewer organisms and biodiversity — according to a new summary of the latest marine research.
The ocean is full of mysteries — take hydrothermal vents for example. Despite everything we’ve learned about the ocean, scientists didn’t know about these underwater hot springs until 1977, when they were first discovered near the Galapagos Islands.
Using a new net, marine biologists from Germany's Alfred Wegener Institute have, for the first time, been able to catch polar cod directly beneath the Arctic sea ice with a trawl, allowing them to determine their large-scale distribution and origin.
Der World Plastic Coucil - ein internationaler Rat aus Firmen der Plastikbranche, gegründet 2013) unterstützt die Entscheidungen des G7 Gipfels in Elmau. Vor allem sind sie glücklich darüber, dass ihr Projekt "Clean Sweep" honoriert wurde - ein Projekt zum besseren Management von Kunststoffgranulat. Kunststoffgranulat gelangt leicht in die Umwelt, wenn nicht vorsichtig damit umgegangen wird - eine weitere Quelle der Plastikverschmutzung.
