Changing Wave Heights Projected as the Atmosphere Warms

In some of the first climate simulations of modelled wave conditions they also found a likely increase in wave height across seven per cent of the global ocean, predominantly in the Southern Ocean. These findings are derived from a study which seeks to understand potential impacts on coasts from climate change driven wind-wave conditions. The

Interagency Team Launches New Website for Coastal and Ocean Planning

An interagency team charged with improving how Washington’s coastal and ocean resources are managed has launched a new interactive website that supports “marine spatial planning.” Marine spatial planning brings together multiple users of Washington’s coast—including energy, industry, government, conservation, and recreation—to make informed and coordinated decisions about how to use marine resources sustainably. The process

Micronesia and Morocco Throw Climate Lifeline to a Drowning World Through Filing of Proposal to Reduce Super-Greenhouse Gas

The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and the Kingdom of Morocco on Tuesday formally filed a proposal to use the Montreal Protocol treaty to phase down hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, super-greenhouse gases that are hundreds to thousands of times more potent in their warming impact than carbon dioxide. These factory-made chemicals are the fastest growing greenhouse

Reducing Air Pollution, Chemical Coolants Can Quickly Cut Sea-Level Rise

Sea-level rise—a growing threat that washes away beaches, attacks costal development, and raises the platform for launching ever more damaging and deadly storm surges—can be cut significantly by reducing local air pollution from black carbon, methane, and tropospheric ozone, along with factory-made coolants called HFCs.

New Sea-Level-Rise Modeling Forecasts Major Climate Impact to Low-Lying Pacific Islands

Dynamic modeling of sea-level rise, which takes storm wind and wave action into account, paints a much graver picture for some low-lying Pacific islands under climate-change scenarios than the passive computer modeling used in earlier research, according to a new U.S. Geological Survey report.

Scientists Stress Need for National Marine Biodiversity Observation Network

With ocean life facing unprecedented threat from climate change, overfishing, pollution, invasive species and habitat destruction, a University of Florida researcher is helping coordinate national efforts to monitor marine biodiversity. Humans depend on the ocean for food, medicine, transportation and recreation, yet little is known about how these vast ecosystems spanning 70 percent of the

Tracking White Shark Migration Reveals Vast Range

Long-life batteries and satellite tagging have been used to fill in the blanks of female white sharks’ (Carcharodon carcharias) lifestyles. Research published in the launch edition of BioMed Central’s open access journal Animal Biotelemetry defines a two year migratory pattern in the Pacific Ocean. Pregnant females travel between the mating area at Guadalupe Island and

USGS Finds No Influence of Oil Platforms on Contaminant Levels in California Fishes

Fishes residing near oil platforms in southern California have similar contaminant levels as fishes in nearby natural sites, according to two recent reports by the U.S. Geological Survey, which were conducted to assist the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) in understanding potential consequences of offshore energy development.

Learning by Observing: A Student Perspective

In addition to daily observations, Semester at Sea students have had the fortune to attend several Explorer Seminars that have focused on what’s happening in the waters underneath our floating home.  The MV Explorer is also participating in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Global Drifter Program.  Our ship served as a host to
