What happens to fish and other sea creatures underwater during a hurricane

What happens to fish and other sea creatures underwater during a hurricane | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
Fish and other ocean creatures face deadly conditions during a hurricane - sometimes the extreme weather strands them on land or far out at sea. 
Hurricanes can generate massive waves, so most sea creatures - including dolphins, whales, and sharks - avoid the rough surface water and swim to calmer seas.
But in some cases, the extreme conditions can help animals thrive. 
Dolphin births increased after Hurricane Katrina damaged or destroyed almost 90% of fishing boats in the Mississippi Sound.
Watch the video above to learn what happens underwater during a hurricane. 

Hurricanes can be just as deadly for marine life, sometimes stranding them on land or far out at sea.

A curious branch of plankton evolution

A curious branch of plankton evolution | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
Planktonic foraminifera -- tiny, shelled organisms that float in the sea -- left behind one of the most complete fossil records of evolutionary history in deep sea deposits. Consequently, evolutionists have a relatively sturdy grasp on when and how new lineages arose. However, a new study reveals that one lineage evolved much more rapidly than everyone predicted, and researchers are looking beyond Darwin's original theories of gradual evolution to understand why.

Predicting an El Niño or La Niña year 17 months in advance

Predicting an El Niño or La Niña year 17 months in advance | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) leads to extreme climatic variations called El Niño and La Niña that cause dangerous weather conditions in many regions throughout the world. Currently, a reliable forecast of the ENSO phases can be made about a year beforehand. This study details a novel method that allows for the accurate forecast of its phases up to 17 months in advance.

Bacterioplankton: Taking their vitamins | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
New research finds that more bacterioplankton utilize vitamin B1 or B1 precursors from their environment than synthesize their own. The researchers also found that B1 availability can directly limit bacterioplankton growth, which could have larger impacts on aquatic microbial food webs, as well as energy and nutrient exchange.
