Changes to fisheries legislation have removed habitat protection for most fish species in Canada
Federal government changes to Canada's fisheries legislation "have eviscerated" the ability to protect habitat for most of the country's fish species, scientists at the University of Calgary and Dalhousie University say in a new study.

Network to study environmental microbes
They're tiny, everywhere and vital to the environment, but biologists have largely overlooked the worms, fungi and single-celled animals found in every environment on Earth. A new research coordination network based at UC Davis and the University of New Hampshire aims to correct that, applying new genome sequencing technology to study these organisms.

NASA sees Tropical Depression 30W stretching out, fading
Tropical Storm 30W weakened into a tropical depression again on Nov. 6 and wind shear stretched out the storm. The storm's elongation was evident in infrared NASA satellite imagery.

NASA sees heavy rain around Super-Typhoon Haiyan's eye
Super Typhoon Haiyan continues moving toward the Philippines, and when NASA's TRMM satellite passed overhead, it was very close to the island of Palau and packing heavy rainfall. Haiyan is now equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane.

Stress makes snails forgetful
New research on pond snails has revealed that high levels of stress can block memory processes. Researchers from the University of Exeter and the University of Calgary trained snails and found that when they were exposed to multiple stressful events they were unable remember what they had learned.

Looking for tomorrow's power source? Go fly a (underwater) kite
As the world looks to wean itself from fossil fuels, a new answer may be emerging: underwater kites. A professor of mechanical engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute has received a grant from the National Science Foundation to explore ways to harness ocean currents and tidal flows using this unexpected technology. The payoff could be significant. For example, the potential power output of just the Florida Current could be equivalent to 10 nuclear power plants.

Global change: Stowaways threaten fisheries in the Arctic
The increased sea temperature expected in 2100 will in itself mean that the potential number of species introduced by ships will increase more than sixfold in the Norwegian Archipelago Svalbard in the Arctic Ocean. These are the findings of a new international study. Add to this the fact that the number of ships sailing in the Arctic will also increase and there is good reason to be on guard.

Environmental Impact Assessment Review
Assessing noise impact of offshore wind farm construction may help protect marine mammals
Growth in offshore wind generation is expected to play a major role in meeting carbon reduction targets around the world, but the impact of construction noise on marine species is yet unknown. A group of scientists from the United Kingdom and the United States have developed a method to assess the potential impacts of offshore wind farm construction on marine mammals, particularly the noise made while driving piles into the seabed for wind turbine foundations.
