Scientists have found that melting glaciers are causing a loss of species diversity among benthos in the coastal waters off the Antarctic Peninsula.
It turns out that marine communities may be most at risk when it comes to climate change. Scientists have found that marine life may be most sensitive to ocean warming.
Researchers found that sharks and other large marine predators are losing their hunting abilities due to warmer oceans and high levels of CO2. This reduces sharks' growth and development, and their population declines at the same time.
Climate change may drastically impact the hunting ability of sharks. As CO2 levels increase and as ocean waters warm, researchers have found that sharks may be unable to meet their energy demands.
Harnessing wave power may be the energy of the future. Carnegie and Western Power are collaborating to deliver a world first wave-integrated island microgrid project.
In a recent study, scientists researched deep-sea hydrothermal vents and how they influence ocean carbons. The researchers found that organic carbon is removed from ocean water when it is heated through hydrothermal vents, which are like hot spots on the ocean floor.
Jellyfish use a somewhat surprising technique to swim, and now researchers are learning a bit more about it.
Acidifying waters may pose a threat to the Southern Ocean.
By the 2050s, there will be a lot less ice and a lot more water in the Arctic Ocean. Scientists have found that the area will see at least 60 days a year of open water at this time period.
Researchers have found that the scarred, jumbled areas that make up Europa's so-called "chaos terrain" may harbor icy and compounds that may indicate life.
University of British Columbia researchers found that only four percent of the ocean is protected, and marine protected areas make up that four percent.
