Coral Reef Photo

New research from the University of Washington and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory links the brightness of clouds in the sky to airbone gasses produced by plankton all the way down on the ocean floor. Read about their research published in Science Advances on EurekAlert!.

Video: Gas hydrates found in Arctic continental shelf sediments behave like ice with a very notable exception: they burn! Check out a video of CAGE researchers demonstrating here!

Exploring evolution via electric fish hybrid zone
Michigan State University is using a $700,000 National Science Foundation grant to study how electric fish signals evolve, research that could offer insights into the evolution of new species.

New mussel-inspired surgical protein glue: Close wounds, open medical possibilities
Inspired by nature's wonders, Korean scientists have developed new light-activated adhesive hydrogel that is mussel protein-based. The innovative surgical protein glue, called LAMBA, not only closes an open wound on a wet bleeding site within less than 60 seconds but also effectively facilitates the healing process without inflammation or a scar.

Study sheds light on the ability of different marine species to respond to climate warming
In Eastern Australia, the ocean has been warming at a rate that's four times that of the global average. Many marine species have been appearing further south than they ever have before, while others have stayed put.

Science and technology help Navy prepare for future Arctic operations
Last week, Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. Mat Winter was the Navy keynote speaker at the Sixth Symposium on the Impacts of an Ice-Diminishing Arctic on Maritime and Naval Operations. He discussed how naval assets could operate safely in an increasingly accessible Arctic.

Satellite data shows Tropical Cyclone Halola getting stronger
NASA data pinpointed the area of strongest sustained winds on July 19 and the extent of those winds expanded on July 20 as Halola became a tropical storm again.

Ocean acidification may cause dramatic changes to phytoplankton
A team of researchers from MIT, the University of Alabama, and elsewhere has found that such increased ocean acidification will dramatically affect global populations of phytoplankton -- microorganisms on the ocean surface that make up the base of the marine food chain.

Marine travellers best able to adapt to warming waters
Marine species that already roam far and wide throughout our oceans are extending their territories further and faster in response to climate change, according to new research involving the University of Southampton and an international team of biodiversity experts.

As the oceans warm, wide-ranging species will have an edge
Marine species that already have large ranges are extending their territories fastest in response to climate change, according to new research from University of British Columbia biodiversity experts. The study is one of the first comprehensive looks at how traits -- other than thermal niche -- impact marine animals' ability to respond to climate change. It could help improve global predictions of how different species redistribute as the oceans warm, and identify species in greatest jeopardy.

Why offspring cope better with climate change -- it's all in the genes!
In a world first study, researchers at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University have unlocked the genetic mystery of why some fish are able to adjust to warming oceans. In a collaborative project with scientists from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, the researchers examined how the fish's genes responded after several generations living at higher temperatures predicted under climate change.

Ecology from treetop to bedrock: Human influence in Earth's critical zone
In the narrow space between treetops and bedrock is a critical zone holding all of the life-sustaining resources supporting terrestrial life on earth. At an organized session on Critical Zone Ecology at the 100th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America, ecologists will describe how they work with geologists, hydrologists, climate scientists, and others to expand the disciplinary dimensions of their understanding of watersheds.
