Establishing world-class coral reef ecosystem monitoring in Okinawa
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution researchers, working in partnership with the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, have developed the Ocean Cube Observatory System, a marine observatory system installed in waters off Motobu Peninsula, Japan -- a biodiversity hotspot that is home to ecologically significant coral reefs. The system enables real-time monitoring of temperature, salinity, and other chemical, biological and physical data.

Achilles' heel of ice shelves is beneath the water, scientists reveal
New research has revealed that more ice leaves Antarctica by melting from the underside of submerged ice shelves than was previously thought, accounting for as much as 90 percent of ice loss in some areas.

Science
Marine species distribution shifts reflect local climate conditions
Climate change has resulted in shifts in where and at what depths many marine species are found. These shifts have not been uniform, and sometimes have occurred at different rates and in different ways than expected. Researchers from the US and Canada suggest that climate velocity -- the rate and direction that climate shifts in a particular region or landscape -- explains observed shifts in distribution far better than biological or species characteristics.

Earth's wobble 'fixes' dinner for marine organisms
The cyclic wobble of the Earth on its axis controls the production of a nutrient essential to the health of the ocean, according to a new study in the journal Nature. The discovery of factors that control this nutrient, known as "fixed" nitrogen, gives researchers insight into how the ocean regulates its own life-support system, which in turn affects the Earth's climate and the size of marine fisheries.

Friday the 13th brings double tropical trouble to Mexico
Friday the 13th is known for being unlucky and residents along Mexico's eastern and western coast are experiencing that feeling as a result of newborn Tropical Depression 13E in the eastern Pacific Ocean, and newborn Tropical Storm Ingrid in the Gulf of Mexico.

CO2-hungry microbes might short-circuit the marine foodweb
A five-week long field experiment of the European Project on Ocean Acidification shows that pico- and nanophytoplankton benefit from higher carbon dioxide concentrations in the water, causing an imbalance in the food web. In addition, the carbon export to the deep and the production of the climate-cooling gas dimethylsulfide are diminished -- two important functions for the global climate. A special issue of the European Geosciences Union's journal Biogeosciences compiles the results of the study.

Tiny plankton could have big impact on climate
As the climate changes and oceans' acidity increases, tiny plankton seem set to succeed. An international team of scientists has found that the smallest plankton groups thrive under elevated CO2 levels. This could cause an imbalance in the food web as well as decrease ocean CO2 uptake, an important regulator of global climate. The results of the study are now compiled in a special issue published in Biogeosciences, a journal of the European Geosciences Union.

Research shows denser seagrass beds hold more baby blue crabs
A new study in Chesapeake Bay by researchers at William & Mary's Virginia Institute of Marine Science shows that it's not just the presence of a seagrass bed that matters to young crabs, but also its quality -- with denser beds holding exponentially more crabs per square meter than more open beds where plants are separated by small patches of mud or sand.

Trans-Nino years could foster tornado super outbreaks
Researchers are trying to determine if Trans-Nino years, which mark the onset or ebbing of El Nino and La Nina, are the main culprits behind deadly super-outbreaks of tornadoes. Fueled by a powerfully interconnected global atmospheric system, as sea-surface temperatures in the Pacific shift the Jet Stream's course during Trans-Nino years, favorable conditions for violent weather in the United States are created.

Viruses associated with coral epidemic of 'white plague'
They call it the "white plague," and like its black counterpart from the Middle Ages, it conjures up visions of catastrophic death, with a cause that was at first uncertain even as it led to widespread destruction -- on marine corals in the Caribbean Sea. Now, at least, one of the causes of this plague has been found.

Unprecedented rate and scale of ocean acidification found in the Arctic
Acidification of the Arctic Ocean is occurring faster than projected according to new findings published in the journal PLoS One. The increase in rate is being blamed on rapidly melting sea ice, a process that may have important consequences for health of the Arctic ecosystem.

Study explores complex physical oceanography in East China Sea
Just days before a team of researchers set out to conduct fieldwork in the East China Sea, Typhoon Morakot -- one of the most destructive storms ever to hit Taiwan -- made landfall on the island, causing widespread damage and drastically altering the flow of water along the nearby continental shelf. Their research may offer a new understanding of how chaotic and powerful currents form in the East China Sea, and could also reveal how large storms affect those currents.
