Undersea explorers who spent several days studying the wreck of the Andrea Doria off Nantucket are planning to share their findings.
Scientists from Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate (CAGE) have recently retrieved two long-term observatories that have been sitting on the ocean floor in the Arctic for over a year. The recovery has been ...
Fingerprint algorithm helps researchers characterize ripples on the ocean floor to understand storm behavior
Human fingerprints are unique identifiers. The wiggles, curves and ripples cannot be copied or duplicated and provide a distinct signature that represents an individual.
The hydrothermal vents and methane seeps on the ocean floor that were once thought to be geologic and biological oddities are now emerging as a major force in ocean ecosystems, marine life and global climate.
Far offshore and a mile deep in the dark world below the Gulf of Mexico's gleaming surface, the catastrophic BP oil spill of 2010 did untold damage on the ocean floor. But scientists are unsure they can do much to heal places ...
Sharks swim around a platform off Mexico's east coast as scientists drill deep into the ocean floor, extracting the remains of the asteroid widely blamed for the demise of the dinosaurs.
Many large glaciers in Greenland are at greater risk of melting from below than previously thought, according to new maps of the seafloor around Greenland created by an international research team. Like other recent research ...
They are the land mines of the sea, killing long after being forgotten.
A team led by experts at Cardiff University has provided new evidence to explain why deep sea creatures were able to survive the catastrophic asteroid strike that wiped out the dinosaurs 65m years ago.
Through the use of mathematical models, Stanford researchers have better defined the powerful processes that carved some of the largest canyons on Earth, deep under the oceans.
