Meet a parasite that can create its own mobile nursery for its young, a parasite that is thought to be the inspiration behind the chest-bursting xenomorph in the film Alien. Meet Phronima, the pram-pushing, barrel-riding ...
(Phys.org) —Oregon State University scientists have discovered how to pinpoint the time and place of underwater volcanic eruptions using satellite images.
Researchers have now developed a detailed chart of marine currents along the coast of Nordland. This knowledge will help the industry to be better prepared to deal with fish diseases, shipwrecks, pollution and algal blooms.
(Phys.org) —Scientists at the University of Liverpool have shown that deep sea fault zones could transport much larger amounts of water from the Earth's oceans to the upper mantle than previously thought.
Teams of biologists are investigating the deaths of 25 pilot whales in the shallow waters off southwest Florida.
A Perth-based hydro-geologist has led a team of scientists modelling carbon sequestration in the Latrobe aquifer, below Bass Strait's ocean floor.
Ocean warming and acidification are leading to an increase in the rate of sponge biomass and bioerosion.
Ocean waters warming from climate change are placing coral reefs in jeopardy, but a new discovery suggests that two similar-looking coral species differ in how they survive.
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has discovered water vapour erupting from the frigid surface of Jupiter's moon Europa, in one or more localised plumes near its south pole.
