In a new paper out in Nature Scientific Reports today, the University of Delaware's Xiao-Hai Yan and colleagues report on the coastal ocean response to global warming acceleration and hiatus.
Have you ever enjoyed the cool refuge that an underground cave offers from a hot summer's day? Or perhaps you have experienced the soothing warmth when entering a cave during winter?
A new study shows that surface water temperature in the Chesapeake Bay is increasing more rapidly than air temperature, signaling a need to look at the impact of warming waters on one of the largest and most productive estuaries ...
Fishing line, paper clips, glass marble, glue - no, not the makings of a MacGyver episode but a new experiment that lets students precisely measure the effects of global warming on oceans.
Just below the sun-warmed surface of a dam, the water temperature can be breath-catchingly cold. So imagine how chilly the water gets when you descend another 20, 30 or even 50 metres to the dam bed.

High sea temperatures off the coast of Qatar threaten precious coral reef and have caused mass deaths among some 20 types of fish, Doha-based marine researchers said on Monday.
When crops get thirsty, they get hot. Scientists can use canopy temperatures to determine if crops are water stressed. An Agricultural Research Service engineer in Colorado has found a way to simplify this process for farmers. ...
