Computer to simulate harbor porpoises
Researchers at Aarhus University, Denmark, use a computer model to predict the impact of new offshore wind farms on the population of harbor porpoises in the North Sea. A consortium of international energy companies has commissioned the project and funds the independent research.

Endangered Idaho salmon regaining fitness advantage
Endangered Snake River sockeye salmon are regaining the fitness of their wild ancestors, with naturally spawned juvenile sockeye returning from the ocean at a much higher rate than others from hatcheries, a new analysis has found. Biologists believe the increased return rate is high enough for the species to eventually sustain itself in the wild again.

Underwater robot sheds new light on Antarctic sea ice
The first detailed, high-resolution 3-D maps of Antarctic sea ice have been developed using an underwater robot. Scientists from the UK, USA and Australia say the new technology provides accurate ice thickness measurements from areas that were previously too difficult to access.

New tool displays West Coast ocean acidification data
The NOAA data portal displays real-time ocean acidification data for the open ocean and protected bays. New tools monitor the level of aragonite near shellfish hatcheries in Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California.

China's new 'Great Wall' not so great
China's second great wall, a vast seawall covering more than half of the country's mainland coastline, is a foundation for financial gain -- and also a dyke holding a swelling rush of ecological woes.

Study: Environmental bleaching impairs long-term coral reproduction
Professor Don Levitan, chair of the Department of Biological Science, writes in the latest issue of Marine Ecology Progress Series that bleaching -- a process where high water temperatures or UV light stresses the coral to the point where it loses its symbiotic algal partner that provides the coral with color -- is also affecting the long-term fertility of the coral.

As CO2 acidifies oceans, scientists develop a way to measure effect on marine ecosystems
Man-made emissions have dramatically increased the CO2 content of oceans and acidified their surface waters. Now scientists in Israel have for the first time developed a way to quantify how acidification is affecting marine ecosystems on an oceanic basin scale. Studying a 5,000 km strip of ocean, they developed a new way to assess overall calcification rates of coral reefs and open sea plankton based on variations in surface water chemistry.
