New geology research explores intriguing questions
Can spaceborne radar help predict sinkholes? What do ancient ambers reveal about paleochemotaxonomy? How does serpentinization affect sub-seafloor environments? Can OAE2 help us understand current global warming? Did trilobites venture into upper intertidal zones? When did vast landmasses first emerge above sea level? What does the March 27, 2013, 6.2-magnitude earthquake reveal about central Taiwan? How do you reconstruct snapshots of a catastrophic radial current? What is a cryptic coral-crinoid hanging garden?

Change in Pacific nitrogen content tied to climate change
Using deep sea corals gathered near the Hawaiian Islands, a Lawrence Livermore scientist in collaboration with UC Santa Cruz colleagues have determined that a long term shift in nitrogen content in the Pacific Ocean has occurred as a result of climate change.

Loggerhead sea turtle nesting activity driven by recent climate conditions and returning nesting
New research indicates that for loggerhead sea turtles in the Northwest Atlantic, the number of returning nesting females in the population and favorable climate conditions in the year or two prior to the nesting year are strongly related to the number of nests produced by these animals in a given year. Also, in what may be good news for loggerheads, nesting increases since 2008 may be a recovery response in this threatened population.

Deep-sea corals record dramatic long-term shift in Pacific Ocean ecosystem
Long-lived deep-sea corals preserve evidence of a major shift in the open Pacific Ocean ecosystem since around 1850, according to a study by researchers at UC Santa Cruz. The findings indicate that changes at the base of the marine food web observed in recent decades in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre may have begun more than 150 years ago at the end of the Little Ice Age.

Marine biologists unmask species diversity in coral reefs
Some corals have been found to have the ability to survive in harsh environments, according to research to be published on 7 Feb. 2014 in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The researchers report previously unrecognized species diversity that had been was hiding some corals' ability to respond to climate change.

Bonefish spawning behavior in the Bahamas surprises researchers, should aid conservation
Bonefish, sometimes called the gray ghost, are among the most elusive and highly prized quarry of recreational anglers in the Florida Keys, the Bahamas and similar tropical habitats around the world. Now a research team including fish ecologist Andy Danylchuk of the University of Massachusetts Amherst has documented rarely seen pre-spawning behavior in bonefish, which should aid future conservation efforts.

Blind cavefish offer evidence for alternative mechanism of evolutionary change
In a blind fish that dwells in deep, dark Mexican caves, scientists have found evidence for a long-debated mechanism of evolutionary change that is distinct from natural selection of spontaneously arising mutations, as reported this week in the journal Science.

With new study, aquatic comb jelly floats into new evolutionary position
In a study that compares the genomes of aquatic life forms, researchers have found evidence to shuffle the branches of the tree of life. The cornerstone of the study, published in the Dec. 13, 2013, advance online issue of Science, is the researchers' sequencing, assembly, annotation and analysis of the genome of Mnemiopsis leidyi, a comb jelly native to the coastal waters of the western Atlantic Ocean.

University researchers observe surprising bonefish spawning behavior in the Bahamas
A recent study of bonefish spawning behavior in the Bahamas brings to light new information that should aid bonefish conservation efforts. The research shows that thousands of bonefish can be involved simultaneously in spawning aggregations, documents new spawning-associated behaviors and identifies distinct staging and spawning locations.

Post-Sandy, Long Island barrier systems appear surprisingly sound
Results of a rapid response marine geophysical survey off Long Island following Hurricane Sandy show that despite the devastation on land, Sandy did not significantly disrupt the offshore barrier system that protects Long Island from long-term erosion. As a result, residents can rebuild with greater confidence the land will not begin to erode out from under them. The survey also found evidence of pollutants transferred to the offshore waters from Long Island's south shore estuaries.
