Scientists caution against exploitation of deep ocean
The world's oceans are vast and deep, yet rapidly advancing technology and the quest for extracting resources from previously unreachable depths is beginning to put the deep seas on the cusp of peril, an international team of scientists warned this week.

Huge waves measured for first time in Arctic Ocean
The first measurements of waves in the middle of the Arctic Ocean recorded house-sized waves during a September 2012 storm. More sensors are going out this summer to study waves in newly ice-free Arctic waters.

Major turtle nesting beaches protected in 1 of the UK's far flung overseas territories
Sea turtles are not a species one would normally associate with the United Kingdom. But on the remote UK overseas territory of Ascension Island, one of the world's largest green turtle populations is undergoing something of a renaissance.

From 'Finding Nemo' to minerals -- what riches lie in the deep sea?
As fishing and the harvesting of metals, gas and oil expand deeper and deeper into the ocean, scientists are drawing attention to the services provided by the deep sea, the world's largest environment. 'This is the time to discuss deep-sea stewardship before exploitation is too much farther underway,' says lead author Andrew Thurber. In a review published today in Biogeosciences, Thurber and colleagues summarize what this habitat provides to humans, emphasizing the need to protect it.

NASA sees Tropical Storm Hernan near Mexico's Baja California
Tropical Storm Hernan developed over this past weekend and reached hurricane strength before vertical wind shear kicked in and kicked the storm down. NASA's Terra satellite passed over Hernan when it was developing as a tropical depression near Baja California, Mexico.

Satellite sees Genevieve's remnants chased by 2 more systems
Tropical Storm Genevieve may be a remnant low pressure area but there's still a chance it could make a comeback. Meanwhile, GOES-West satellite imagery showed there are two developing low pressure areas 'chasing' Genevieve to the east. NOAA's Central Pacific Hurricane Center has suddenly become very busy tracking these three areas.
