We may be in for massive sea level rises if we continue to burn fossil fuels.
There's a hidden problem impacting our world's oceans: ghost gear.
The Southern Ocean is apparently absorbing more and more CO2 over time.
Pinkie, a rare pink dolphin, was recently spotted in the Louisiana waterway, with reports that the animal may be pregnant.
For the first time ever, scientists have shown that phytoplankton in remote ocean regions may contribute to rare airborne particles that trigger ice formation in clouds.
Mercury pollution in California may be coming from a surprising source: elephant seals. Scientists have found that molting elephant seals actually shed considerable amounts of mercury into coastal waters.
When it comes to saving the environment, understanding the world's oceans is crucial. Scientists have announced that a greater understanding of our oceans is essentially for the well being of the world's population.
In order to save coral reefs, we may have to pay more attention to the fish. Scientists have found that coral reef diversity "hotspots" in the Indian Ocean rely more on the biomass of fish than where they are located.
A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) found that plastic trash is found in 90 percent of sea birds, with a steadily increasing rate globally.

A starfish-killing robot may be let loose on the Great Barrier Reef. Scientists have designed a robot to help tackle crown-of-thorns starfish that are posing a significant threat to coral.
An Antarctic lake may tell researchers a bit more about Earth's ancient past. They've found an oasis of oxygen at the bottom of the lake, which may reflect conditions on Earth two and a half billion years ago before oxygen became commonplace.
