News on Oceanography continually updated from thousands of sources around the net.
Careful study of ocean temperatures shows how tropical fish are likely to expand northward along the Atlantic coast into the temperate ocean zone off the Carolinas. Invaders could include the poisonous lionfish, which is already causing problems on coral reefs in the Caribbean.
I love doing puzzles about words. There are so many. Millions of words. 'am constantly running across ones I don't know.
While brokers say most buyers tear down Sandy-damaged homes to raise and rebuild, buyers from Ditmas Park opted to restore a house in Sea Gate, an area hard hit by the storm. When Angela Sbano and her husband decided to sell their Queen Anne home in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, this past spring to move to a large beachfront home in Sea Gate, they encountered a range of reactions.
In one year, India's ozone pollution damaged millions of tons of the country's major crops, causing losses of more than a billion dollars and destroying enough food to feed tens of millions of people living below the poverty line. These are findings of a new study co-authored by researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, that looked at the agricultural effects in 2005 of high concentrations of ground-level ozone, a plant-damaging pollutant formed by emissions from vehicles, cooking stoves, and other sources.
Gismos, gadgets, widgets ... Ingenuity in developing precise and efficient tools is an important key to unlocking the mysteries of the ocean. Observing the oceans in real time is crucial to understanding and protecting the planet.
Racetrack Playa is home to an enduring Death Valley mystery. Littered across the surface of this dry lake, also called a "playa," are hundreds of rocks - some weighing as much as 320 kilograms - that seem to have been dragged across the ground, leaving synchronized trails that can stretch for hundreds of meters.
Even though it's eparated from the rest of the world's oceans by a strong circulation of currents and a distinct temperature gradient, the Southern Ocean is known to be a key driver of global climate and carbon cycles. Climate researchers and oceanographers may soon know a lot more about the enigmatic ocean as they deploy hundreds of robotic floats deployed around Antarctica in a six-year, $21 million research project aimed at understanding ocean dynamics, chemistry and carbon cycling.
Students from fourth, fifth and sixth grades at Adelante Charter School in Santa Barbara experienced a live two-way video conference with scientists aboard the EV Nautilus , via a specially equipped auditorium at the UCSB Marine Sciences Department last Tuesday. The EV Nautilus is an educational research vessel currently exploring underwater volcanic seamounts in the Caribbean Sea, in the Anegada Passage near the British Virgin Islands.

Donald Allison was an accomplished biologist and oceanographer. His studies and reports were published in scientific journals and helped doom DDT spraying.
It was clear to anyone who went to Antarctica in the summer of 2001-02 that it was an unusually warm one - record-setting, in fact - and just one in a series of warm austral summers. That December, geologic oceanographer Eugene Domack , now at the University of South Florida, was part of an expedition sampling the Southern Ocean seafloor around the Antarctic Peninsula - then, as now, one of the fastest-warming places on the globe.
Like Cape Fear or Starvation Lake , a place called Scar Inlet might be a good setting for a the perfect murder . Unfortunately for aspiring homicidal maniacs, the population of Scar Inlet is zero, so this 900-square-mile ice cube on the northernmost finger of the Antarctic Peninsula will have to serve as the site of another kind of vanishing.
Of all the sights of the sea, this giant would be the greatest, unless a tiny sea slug is your personal taste. Whatever, getting out there, on the coast or sailing,, is being encouraged by oceanographers everywhere, who need your input ; Mola image ; Credit: A© Shutterstock Da Vinci, Faraday and Mendel, Darwin and Benjamin Franklin are quoted as great "citizen-scientists," who could be joined tomorrow by modern examples of people who can help professionals.
A mako shark named St. Marys, seen here being tagged in May, was tracked off the coast of Nova Scotia Thursday. A little less than two metres in length, the shark was tagged in May off Ocean City, Md., and appears to have a penchant for northern climes, said Mahmood Shivji, who runs the Guy Harvey Research Institute at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
