West Antarctic glacier loss appears unstoppable, UCI-NASA study finds
A rapidly melting section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet appears to be in irreversible decline, with nothing to stop the entire glacial basin from disappearing into the sea, according to researchers at the University of California, Irvine and NASA.

UGA research examines fate of methane following the Deepwater Horizon spill
The 2010 Deepwater Horizon blowout discharged roughly five million barrels of oil and up to 500,000 metric tonnes of natural gas into Gulf of Mexico offshore waters over a period of 84 days. In the face of a seemingly insurmountable cleanup effort, many were relieved by reports following the disaster that naturally-occurring microbes had consumed much of the gas and oil.

Hydrologists find Mississippi River network's buffering system for nitrates is overwhelmed
A new method of measuring surface water-ground water interaction along the length of the Mississippi River suggests the nitrates causing the Gulf of Mexico dead zone can not be controlled through existing natural filtration systems. The research provides valuable information for water quality efforts, including tracking of nitrogen fertilizers that flow through the river network into the gulf.

Role of middle predators in reef systems
New marine science research shows that the behavior of the 'middle child' in the predator-prey food chain plays a strong role in deter­mining how the reef as a whole will fare. Northeastern research with oyster reefs complicates the evolution of a long-held ecology paradigm.
