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!

NASA's RapidScat sees Tropical Storm Halola's concentrated winds
The strongest sustained winds in the northwestern Pacific Ocean's Tropical Storm Halola were located in the northeastern quadrant of the storm according to NASA's RapidScat instrument that flies aboard the International Space Station.

RapidScat shows Enrique holding tropical storm status
The National Hurricane Center deemed that the Eastern Pacific Ocean's tropical cyclone Enrique continued to hold onto tropical storm status during the morning of July 16, based on surface wind data from NASA's RapidScat instrument.

Sun's activity controls Greenland temperatures
The sun's activity could be affecting a key ocean circulation mechanism that plays an important role in regulating Greenland's climate, according to a new study. The phenomenon could be partially responsible for cool temperatures the island experienced in the late 20th century and potentially lead to increased melting of the Greenland ice sheet in the coming decades, the new research suggests.

Ángel Borja has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Hull
Ángel Borja has been awarded an honorary doctorate in science by the University of Hull (UK). This distinction recognises his outstanding research work into the marine environment and the international impact of his work relating to the development of marine water assessment methods and developing environmental change indicators, among many other merits. The University of Hull regards this Honorary Doctorate in Sciences as "an outstanding example of how scientists should engage in the public debate".

Are marine ecosystems headed toward a new productivity regime?
Phytoplankton have been projected to produce less organic material as the oceans' temperatures rise -- with carry-on effects for higher levels of the food web. Based on new climate model simulations, a team of scientists from Sydney and Kiel suggests now that this assumption might be misleading. According to the researchers, ocean productivity might be pushed into a completely new regime in the more distant future.

Closer look at microorganism provides insight on carbon cycling
An Argonne/University of Tennessee research team reconstructed the crystal structure of BAP, a protein involved in the process by which marine archaea release carbon, to determine how it functioned, as well as its larger role in carbon cycling in marine sediments.
