New research from Cornell University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute shows a continually warming world is leading to extended, late-summer weeks of water stratification in lakes, which prompts oxygen deprivation in the water - provoking conditions called hypoxia (low oxygen) and anoxia (no oxygen) - and negative consequences for fish and other species.
An almost limitless supply of fresh water exists in the form of water vapor above Earth's oceans, yet remains untapped, researchers said.
According to a new study headed by Maria Luiza Pedrotti of Sorbonne Universite, nearly 200 species of bacteria tend to colonize microfibers present in the Mediterranean Sea.
At Tel Aviv University and the Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences in Eilat, a new study analyzed the larvae development of corals and plastic additives on the reproductive process and other organisms discovered in Eilat’s coral reef.
A warming climate seems responsible for a decrease in sea ice in the Arctic Ocean, where the loss of sea ice has significant economic, ecological, and climate effects.
A new study headed by Professor John Speakman from the Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the University of Aberdeen has shown that the suggested water intake of eight 8-oz glasses of water daily (nearly 2 L/day) is too high for the real need in several situations.
Triggered by climate change, a new model describes that water evaporating from the Arctic Ocean has been transported to the south and resulted in high snowfall in northern Eurasia in early winter and late autumn.
In late June and early July 2021, the heat wave that struck western North America was not just any midsummer event. For more than nine days, from British Columbia through Washington and Oregon and beyond, the temperature surpassed average regional temperatures for the period by 10°C (18°F), and on single days in few locales, by an incredible 30°C or 54°F.
Negotiation regarding a new Global Plastics Treaty has made the nations meet in Uruguay. Marine and forensic scientists reported new outcomes this week that disclose the breakthrough of synthetic plastic fibers in seawater, air, sea ice, and sediment sampled in the Antarctic Weddell Sea.
The Mighty Mississippi is experiencing historic low water levels due to drought, and that has one expert at Tulane University concerned about what it could mean for the environment, food supplies and drinking water.
