Environmental monitoring web community to be launched at American Geophysical Union Meeting
An online community for do-it-yourself environmental monitoring enthusiasts will eventually help environmental scientists and planners around the globe better observe and quantify the effects of land use and climate change. That's the vision for EnviroDIY.org, developed by Stroud Water Research Center in affiliation with the Christina River Basin Critical Zone Observatory.

Tourism poses a threat to dolphins in the Balearic Islands
The rise in tourism, fishing and sea transport between the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands is compromising the wellbeing of a small population of common bottlenose dolphins living in coastal waters off the Pityusic Islands. This is the conclusion of a study led by the University of Barcelona, which has, for the first time, counted these mammals in summer and spring, which are crucial seasons for them.

The story of a bizarre deep-sea bone worm takes an unexpected twist
Marine biologist Greg Rouse at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego and his colleagues have discovered a new species of bizarre deep-sea worms that feast on the bones of dead animals. The new 'bone worm' was found to be an evolutionary reversal of size unseen in the animal kingdom.

NOAA, partners reveal first images of historic San Francisco shipwreck, SS City of Rio de Janeiro
NOAA and its partners today released 3-D sonar maps and images of an immigrant steamship lost more than 100 years ago in what many consider the worst maritime disaster in San Francisco history. On Feb. 22, 1901, in a dense morning fog, the SS City of Rio de Janeiro struck jagged rocks near the present site of the Golden Gate Bridge and sank almost immediately, killing 128 of the 210 passengers and crew aboard the ship.

New form of ice could help explore exciting avenues for energy production and storage
The discovery of a new form of ice could lead to an improved understanding of our planet's geology, potentially helping to unlock new solutions in the production, transportation and storage of energy. Ice XVI, the least dense of all known forms of ice, has a highly symmetric cage-like structure that can trap gaseous molecules to form compounds known as clathrates or gas hydrates.
