Tracking marine plankton provides new information to reconstruct past climate
A new study from an international team of scientists uncovered new information about the tiny, globetrotting organisms commonly used to reconstruct past climate conditions. The findings can aid in improving our understanding of past global climate conditions.

NOAA expands Cordell Bank, Gulf of the Farallones marine sanctuaries off California
Cordell Bank and Gulf of the Farallones national marine sanctuaries off northern California will both more than double in size following a final rule released today by NOAA. The expansion will help to protect the region's marine and coastal habitats, biological resources and special ecological features.

Inspiring Geology for 50 Years: Geoscientists to Meet in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, USA
Inspiring geology for 50 years: Geoscientists to meet in Bretton Woods, N.H., USA
Geoscientists from the Northeastern US and beyond will convene in Bretton Woods, N.H., on 23-25 March to discuss hot-topic science, expand on current findings, and explore the region's unique geologic features. This event is expected to draw more than 1,000 attendees from a variety of geoscience disciplines. Topics include climate change, coastal and glacial processes, paleo-archaeology, eco-hydrology, and the life cycle of water produced via hydraulic fracturing of the Marcellus and Utica shales.

New research reveals low-oxygen impacts on West Coast groundfish
New research by NOAA Fisheries and Oregon State University finds that low-oxygen waters projected to expand with climate change create winners and losers among deep-dwelling groundfish. Some species are adapted to handle low-oxygen conditions such as those increasingly documented off the West Coast, while the same conditions drive other species away.
