Chemical pollution of European waters is stronger than anticipated
Substantial improvements in freshwater quality by 2015 have been a declared objective of the EU member states, manifesting itself by the requirements of the Water Framework Directive. A recent study conducted by the Institute for Environmental Sciences Landau together with the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research and fellow scientists from France and Switzerland shows that this target is unlikely to be met due to the high levels of toxicants in the water bodies.

Great white shark population in good health along California coast, UF study finds
The great white shark is not endangered in the eastern North Pacific, and, in fact, is doing well enough that its numbers likely are growing, according to an international research team led by a University of Florida researcher.

NASA catches short-lived tropical cyclone Hagibis landfalling in China
Tropical storm Hagibis only lived through 6 bulletins issued by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center in its short lifetime in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. The final bulletin was issued on June 15 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT) after Hagibis made landfall in China.

Antarctic species dwindle as icebergs batter shores year-round
As the planet has warmed, massive losses of sea ice in winter have left icebergs along the Antarctic free to roam for most of the year. As a result, boulders on the shallow seabed -- once encrusted with a rich assemblage of species in intense competition for limited space -- now mostly support a single species. The climate-linked increase in iceberg activity has left all other species so rare as to be almost irrelevant.

NASA sees Hurricane Cristina making a reverse in strength
Hurricane Cristina intensified rapidly on June 12 and infrared satellite data showed cloud top temperatures became extremely cold as thunderstorms towered to the top of the troposphere. One day later, Cristina was weakening quickly and infrared data showed cloud top temperatures were warming as the cloud tops dropped.

NASA sees Tropical Storm Nanauk's soaking swan song
Tropical Storm Nanauk was dissipating in the Arabian Sea on Friday, June 13 as it ran into increasing vertical wind shear, dry air moving into the tropical cyclone and cooler sea surface temperatures.

Scientists identify Deepwater Horizon Oil on shore even years later, after most has degraded
Years after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil spill, oil continues to wash ashore as oil-soaked 'sand patties,' persists in salt marshes abutting the Gulf of Mexico, and questions remain about how much oil has been deposited on the seafloor. Scientists from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences have developed a unique way to fingerprint oil, and have successfully identified Macondo Well oil, even after most of it has degraded.

Acidification and warming threaten Mediterranean Sea iconic species
Scientist finalize their findings about the threat of Mediterranean Sea warming and acidification on key species and ecosystems after a 3.5 year study in Barcelona this week. They have found that this sea is warming and acidifying at unprecedented rates. The main reason is emissions of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels causing warming of the ocean as well as acidification of its waters due to uptake of CO2 by surface waters.

New research shows Western Amazon under threat from oil pollution
A new study of pollution records indicates that the Western Amazon, an area of unparalleled biological and cultural diversity, may have been contaminated by widespread oil pollution over a 30-year period. This work will be presented at the Goldschmidt conference in Sacramento, California.

Climate change winners and losers
A group of scientists have traced the genetics of modern penguin populations back to their early ancestors from the last Ice Age to better understand how three Antarctic penguin species -- gentoo, Adelie, and chinstrap penguins -- fared in response to past climate change.

Study of white sharks in the northwest Atlantic offers optimistic outlook for recovery
White sharks are among the largest, most widespread apex predators in the ocean, but are also among the most vulnerable. A new study, the most comprehensive ever on seasonal distribution patterns and historic trends in abundance of white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) in the western North Atlantic Ocean, used records compiled over more than 200 years to update knowledge and fill in gaps in information about this species. The study was published June 11 in PLOS ONE.

Study shows Deepwater Horizon crude oil impairs swimming performance of juvenile mahi-mahi
A new study led by University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science scientists showed up to a 37 percent decrease in overall swimming performance of Deepwater Horizon oil-exposed juvenile mahi-mahi. The findings reveal the toxic effects of crude oil on ecologically and commercially valuable fish that reside in the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Energy demands of raising a pup push sea otter moms to the limit
By the time a sea otter pup is weaned, its mother may be so depleted physiologically that she is unable to survive the stress of a minor wound or infection. To understand why this happens, UC Santa Cruz biologist Nicole Thometz quantified the energy demands of a growing sea otter pup, revealing just how much it costs a sea otter mom to raise her pup.

Forest loss starves fish
Research shows forest debris that drains into lakes is an important contributor to freshwater food chains -- bolstering fish diets to the extent that increased forest cover causes fish to get 'fat' and sparse forest leaves smaller, underfed fish.

Climate change beats biodiversity as a press, scientific, and funding priority
A study that compared coverage of biodiversity and of climate change in newspapers, scientific articles, and research funding decisions shows that climate change eclipsed biodiversity loss as a priority in the mid-2000s, according to several measures. Since both trends threaten essential ecosystems, biodiversity researchers should seek to emulate the ascendancy of climate change and increase their efforts on research that addresses both trends.

Motherhood is no picnic for sea otter moms
Sea otters consume 25 percent of their own body weight each day just to stay warm and when nursing young their metabolic demands must rocket, but no one knew how much. Nicole Thometz, from the University of California at Santa Cruz, USA, and colleagues have discovered that sea otter moms invest a colossal 930 MJ of energy to successfully raise a pup and this expense can force them to make difficult decisions about their pups' futures.
