Researchers size up aquifer to capture carbon
A Perth-based hydro-geologist has led a team of scientists modelling carbon sequestration in the Latrobe aquifer, below Bass Strait's ocean floor.
Jumping snails left grounded in future oceans
Sea snails that leap to escape their predators may soon lose their extraordinary jumping ability because of rising human carbon dioxide emissions, a team of international scientists has discovered.
Rising ocean acidification leads to anxiety in fish
A new research study combining marine physiology, neuroscience, pharmacology, and behavioral psychology has revealed a surprising outcome from increases of carbon dioxide uptake in the oceans: anxious fish.
When tectonics killed everything
A new paper reveals how the worst extinction in Earth's history may have been tied to the formation of Supercontinent Pangea. The catastrophe wasn't triggered by an impact from above—unlike another well-known ...
Study shows increased summer melting not increasing annual movement of Greenland ice sheet
Earth from space: Ice in motion
Clouds blur our view of the snow below in parts of this image acquired over the southern tip of Greenland by the Landsat-8 satellite on 30 May.
New evidence suggests Earth's oxygen levels fell after the Great Oxidation Event
UN climate report: Key points (Update)
Highlights from a report issued by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on Friday.
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 proces ...
Mathematician uses skills to study Greenland's retreating glaciers (w/ Video)
Many outlet glaciers in Greenland feed ice from the land into fjords, where discharge of icebergs and melting of the glaciers by warmer ocean waters contribute to rising sea levels.
Mosasaur fossil proves the early lizards had tails like sharks
'La Nada' climate pattern lingers in the Pacific
(Phys.org) —New remote sensing data from NASA's Jason-2 satellite show near-normal sea-surface height conditions across the equatorial Pacific Ocean. This neutral, or "La Nada" event, has stubbornly persisted ...
Sea-level rise drives shoreline retreat in Hawaii
Sea-level rise (SLR) has been isolated as a principal cause of coastal erosion in Hawaii. Differing rates of relative sea-level rise on the islands of Oahu and Maui, Hawaii remain as the best explanation ...
Global sea level rise dampened by Australia floods
When enough raindrops fall over land instead of the ocean, they begin to add up. New research led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) shows that when three atmospheric patterns came together ...
