Minimising impacts of coastal construction on bottlenose dolphins
Dolphin Behaviourist and Biostatistician gives insight into the impacts of coastal construction, ensuring quality of coastal life for dolphins
Using marine heatwave forecasts to predict ecological impacts
Marine heatwave forecasts could potentially provide up to one year’s notice of changes to ocean temperatures, predicting effects on ecosystems.
Antarctic sea ice shrunk to less than 2 million square kilometres
The lowest record yet of Antarctic Sea ice has shown that its rapid decline due to global warming is cyclical – and is bound to drop again soon.
EU announces €55 million for climate change monitoring
As part of an ocean funding package of nearly €1 billion, the European Commission will fund €55 million into climate change monitoring over two years.
Climate change increases the speed of ocean sound transmission
Ocean sound transmission is being sped up due to global warming induced by climate change – threatening marine species as sounds travel faster and become louder.
‘Wave reserves’ in surfing promote coastal ecosystem protection
‘Wave reserves’ used in surfing often promote the conservation of valuable coastal areas and the ecosystems that live around them.
61% of Hawaiian coral exposed to warming conditions, survive
In an optimistic 22-month study of Hawaiian coral, researchers find they may adapt well to warmer and more acidic oceans resulting from climate change.
How can innovation help turn climate emergency declarations into real actions?
Dr Xander Wang is leading the Climate Smart Lab to innovate smart technologies supporting climate change adaptation at regional and local scales
Damaged seagrasses can emit methane, even after death
Scientists find that seagrasses continue to produce methane even decades after the plants die – highlighting the potential for more methane emissions if seagrasses are threatened.
Team unveils history of Antarctic ice in relation to climate change
A National Science Foundation funded-study by the University of South Florida documents the evolution of Antarctic ice sheets, 20 million years ago.
20% of African heritage sites threatened by climate change
The African coast – along with its numerous heritage sites – are at risk of being damaged and lost to extreme sea levels and erosion.
Only 15% of coastal areas are still intact, globally
Only 15% of coastal areas around the world remain intact, according to research findings that highlight the need for rehabilitation and conservation.
The environmental competition to challenge coastal pollution
Geovation has launched a national challenge, to award £5000 to find a sustainable solution in tackling coastal pollution.
Antarctic sea ice uniquely changes for first time in 100 years
An increase in sea ice surrounding Antarctica since 1979 is a unique feature of the Antarctic climate - not seen since 1905, according to Ohio University researchers.
Some marine creatures protect each other from climate warming
Scientists reveal that some marine species are able to protect others from dangers of climate change by shielding them from heat
Reversing destruction of biodiversity should be top priority
Over 50 experts say reversing biodiversity loss will take take more than placing protection on land and sea zones.
Scientists use bio-logging devices for killer whale conservation
Scientists use biologging devices to track animal behaviour in order to build conservation strategies for killer whales, and other endangered animals.
Ocean warming has caused fish to shrink in size
Researchers have found that ocean warming, acidification and oxygen depletion have caused a species shift, causing fish to have smaller body sizes.
The key to global warming models is ocean acidity
Ocean acidity is an essential variable in validating climate models, accurately predicting complex environmental dynamics and major changes to Pacific Ocean currents.
Upper ocean temperatures break records for sixth year
Earth’s oceans are hotter than ever with accumulated heat in the upper ocean at record levels, breaking the temperature record for a sixth consecutive year.
