Young Corals Provide Insight into Recovery from Coral Bleaching

The number of young corals can reveal how reefs are recovering from coral bleaching. A new study from the University of Bremen, which was recently published in “PLOS ONE” journal,…

Melting glaciers may produce thousands of kilometers of new Pacific salmon habitat

Retreating glaciers in the Pacific mountains of western North America could produce around 6,150 kilometers of new Pacific salmon habitat by the year 2100, according to a new study. Scientists…

Study on Carbon Storage in the Deep Sea

The movement of water masses in the ocean, its circulation, is an essential component of the global climate system. In a study recently published in the journal Proceedings of the…

Red Sea bioregions show changing blooms

Red Sea phytoplankton blooms change seasonally and interannually in response to climatic events. A KAUST study has analyzed satellite data over two decades and its findings will underpin other investigations…

Air bubbles sound climate change’s impact on glaciers #ASA181

Melting causes accelerated ice loss at tidewater glaciers, releasing pressurized bubbles. As the world’s temperatures rise, tidewater glaciers are receding and melting, releasing air trapped in the ice. Scientists can…

Blue hydrogen can help protect the climate

An international group of researchers led by the Paul Scherrer Institute and the Heriot-Watt University has carried out in-depth analyses of the climate impact of blue hydrogen. This is produced…

Ocean plastic is creating new communities of life on the high seas

Coastal organisms thrive on floating plastic debris in the “great pacific garbage patch”. Coastal plants and animals have found a new way to survive in the open ocean—by colonizing plastic…

Arctic Ocean started getting warmer decades earlier than we thought

The Arctic Ocean has been getting warmer since the beginning of the 20th century – decades earlier than records suggest – due to warmer water flowing into the delicate polar…

What’s in the water?

Researchers take a granular look at global inputs and impacts of human wastewater in coastal ecosystems. The tendency for most of us when it comes to human wastewater is out…
