Sulfur enhances carbon storage in the Black Sea

A study led by Oldenburg researchers finds new explanation for the accumulation of organic compounds in oxygen-depleted marine areas. The effect could negatively feedback on the climate on geological time scales.

Fish adapt to ocean acidification by modifying gene expression

Human-driven global change is challenging the scientific community to understand how marine species might adapt to predicted environmental conditions in the near-future (e.g. hypoxia, ocean warming, and ocean acidification). ...

Scientists have cultured the first stable coral cell lines

Researchers in Japan have established sustainable cell lines in a coral, according to a study published today in Marine Biotechnology. Seven out of eight cell cultures seeded from the stony coral Acropora tenuis have continuously ...

New study improves marine climate change evidence base

Scientists from the University of St Andrews and Marine Scotland have undertaken the first full mapping of carbon stores across the UK's offshore Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) to provide updated evidence for those trying ...
