Long-term data show a recent acceleration in chemical and physical changes in the ocean

Two open-ocean hydrographic stations record 40 years of change in the subtropical North Atlantic Ocean. New research published in Nature Communications Earth & Environment uses data from two sustained open-ocean…

Scientists map freshwater transport in the Arctic Ocean

The Ob, Yenisei, and Lena rivers flow into the Kara and Laptev seas and account for about half of the total freshwater runoff to the Arctic Ocean. The transport and…

P-ONE: a new, large-scale Neutrino Observatory in the Pacific Ocean

The “IceCube” neutrino observatory deep in the ice of the South Pole has already brought spectacular new insights into cosmic incidents of extremely high energies. In order to investigate the…

Surface clean-up technology won't solve ocean plastic problem

Researchers compared estimates of current and future plastic waste with the ability of floating clean-up devices to collect it – and found the impact of such…

Are planets with oceans common in the galaxy? It's likely, NASA scientists find

“Plumes of water erupt from Europa and Enceladus, so we can tell that these bodies have subsurface oceans beneath their ice shells, and they have energy that…

NASA observes large Saharan dust plume over Atlantic ocean

At NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, Colin Seftor, an atmospheric scientist, created an animation of the dust and aerosols from the…

NASA's ICESat-2 measures Arctic Ocean's sea ice thickness, snow cover

Initial results from NASA's new Ice Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) suggest that the sea ice has thinned by as much as 20% since the end of the…
