Kelp Forest Restoration Off Southern California Coast to Serve as International Model

Last week—after 15 years of scientific monitoring, research and planning—a major kelp restoration project began off the coast of the Palos Verdes (PV) Peninsula, long recognized as one of the most important kelp forest regions on the West Coast of the United States. A partnership of environmental groups, public aquaria, fishermen and researchers—led by the

Scientists Outline Long-term Sea-level Rise in Response to Warming of Planet

A new study estimates that global sea levels will rise about 2.3 meters, or more than seven feet, over the next several thousand years for every degree (Celsius) the planet warms. This international study is one of the first to combine analyses of four major contributors to potential sea level rise into a collective estimate,

New Zealand’s Terramar Project

For the past two years, a buoy known as Tascam has been inconspicuously bobbing in the Tasman Bay in New Zealand. It may just look like a souped-up buoy to passing boaters, but it represents the next step in better understanding our marine environment and is the first link in what could some day be

Study Points to Need for Continuous Monitoring of Ice Sheets for Sea-level Rise

The length of the satellite record for the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets is currently too short to tell if the recently reported speed-up of ice loss will be sustained in the future or if it results from natural processes, according to a new study led by Dr Bert Wouters from the University of Bristol.

Work this Summer Extends Reach of Cabled Deep-ocean Observatory

The University of Washington research vessel Thomas G. Thompson is loading up for six weeks at sea. When the team returns to Seattle in late August they will have extended the cabling to key research sites, an important part of building the first real-time, continuous eye on the mysterious creatures, currents and geologic forms in

Danish Arctic Research Institutions Launch Polar Portal

On polarportal.org, Danish research institutions display the results of their monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet and the sea ice in the Arctic. The main purpose of the site is to make updated information from this monitoring available to the general public, both nationally and internationally. In addition, the site will provide access to scientifically

Predicting Hurricane-Induced Coastal Change

The probability of hurricane-induced coastal change on sandy beaches from Florida to New York has been assessed for the first time in two U.S. Geological Survey studies released today. The two reports — one assessing the coastline from Florida to North Carolina, the other from Virginia to New York — can function as part of
