The Nautilus expedition has recorded a rare encounter with a sperm whale at 598 metres below the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana.
The whale circled the remotely operated submersible Hercules several times allowing it to capture the footage above.
Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus is a 64-metre research vessel operated by the Ocean Exploration Trust under the direction of Dr. Robert Ballard, the man who is best-known for finding the wreck of the Titanic and the German military ship Bismarck.
This year is Nautilus's most ambitious expedition season yet, exploring sites ranging from the Gulf of Mexico to British Columbia in late September.
It will explore and map the Galapagos Rift and the site of the first hydrothermal vent discovery in 1977. You can catch up on progress here.
North Carolina's coast will see more frequent and more destructive floods at high tide over the next 30 years, several studies say - even on mild, sunny days - as rising sea levels shove the Atlantic Ocean higher onto our shores.
The same climatic drivers that enhance upwelling of nutrient-rich ocean waters and support of marine productivity can result in lower precipitation on land and slower tree-growth. Tree-ring chronologies helped to explain how upwelling was happening during the past 600 years.
Australia has been hit by two years of heat: 2013 was the hottest ever recorded and 2014 wasn't far behind, taking third place. The country has also sweltered through several significant heatwaves, and, though you might not have noticed them so much, episodes of unusual winter warmth too.
Small volcanic eruptions might eject more of an atmosphere-cooling gas into Earth's upper atmosphere than previously thought, potentially contributing to the recent slowdown in global warming, according to a new study.
Ocean acidification might alter climate-relevant functions of the oceans' uppermost layer, according to a study by a group of marine scientists. Researchers observed a close coupling between biological processes in the seawater and the chemistry of the sea surface microlayer.
