Massive Manatee Deaths In 2013 Attributed To Red Tide Algae
2013-10-31 15:40:37

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg, the number of manatee deaths in 2013 has already reached a record high of 769 fatalities and there are still two months left to go in the year. These deaths account for about 15 percent of the total population and specialists expect the number to go even higher before the year is out. Motor boats, long the greatest mortal enemy of manatees, aren’t to...

Researchers Tease Out Cues That Impact Schooling Fish Behavior
2013-10-31 11:12:23

NYU-Poly Recent studies from two research teams at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) demonstrate how underwater robots can be used to understand and influence the complex swimming behaviors of schooling fish. The teams, led by Maurizio Porfiri, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at NYU-Poly, published two separate papers in the journal PLOS ONE. These studies are the latest in a significant body of research by Porfiri and collaborators...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Toxic oxygen-free and hydrogen sulfide-rich ocean conditions that existed during a major extinction event nearly 94 million years ago could repeat themselves in the future, according to new research being published online this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Research, led by biogeochemists at the University of California, Riverside, suggests that the previous estimates of these oxygen-free,...

Ancient Climate Change Evidence From Fossilized Plankton
2013-10-26 05:41:11

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Climate change dating as far back as hundreds of million years ago was recorded in the shells of ancient oceanic plankton, according to new research published in the journal Earth and Planetary Sciences Letters. Typically, scientists analyze polar ice in search of information about the planet’s temperature and atmosphere, but the oldest Antarctic ice core records only date back to approximately 800,000 years ago. In the new...

Rise In Toxic Algal Blooms Climate Change
2013-10-25 10:07:28

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Algae is probably best known for the green scum it forms on top of stagnant water, and in addition to looking unpleasant, some algal blooms host strains of cyanobacteria that are highly toxic. According to a new study in the journal Science, nutrient enrichment and rising global temperatures are increasing the toxicity of some algal blooms in freshwater lakes, ponds and estuaries around the world. As these 'eutrophic' processes...

Wetland
2013-04-19 18:19:23

A wetland is an area of land that is saturated with water, either permanently or seasonally, such that it takes on the traits of a distinct ecosystem. First and foremost, the factor that distinguishes the wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the unique vegetation that has adapted to its characteristic soil conditions. The wetland consists mostly of hydric soil, which is supportive of aquatic plants. The water that is found in wetlands can be saltwater, brackish, or freshwater....

Arctic Ocean
2013-04-18 22:31:23

The Arctic Ocean which is located in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Arctic north polar region, is the shallowest and smallest of the world’s five major oceanic divisions. The International Hydrographic Organization recognizes it as an ocean, although, some oceanographers consider it as the Arctic Mediterranean Sea or simply, the Arctic Sea, classifying it a Mediterranean sea or an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean. Alternatively, the Arctic Ocean can be considered as the northernmost...

Little tunny, Euthynnus alletteratus
2013-03-28 14:07:39

The little tunny is found widespread in temperate and tropical waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Black Sea and Mediterranean Sea. It is the most common tuna and is highly migratory, with a range from Cape Cod, Massachusetts to Brazil in the Western Atlantic. In the Eastern Atlantic it is found from Skagerrak to South Africa. The little tunny will form schools close to the shoreline, around inlets, and sandbars that can cover up to two miles. This fish prefers warm water and will migrate south in...

Water Pollution
2013-03-25 12:43:15

Water pollution is the contamination of bodies of water including rivers, oceans, lakes, aquifers and groundwater. Water pollution is when pollutants are discharged directly or indirectly into a body of water without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds. Water pollution affects the plants and organisms that reside in these bodies of water. In almost all of the cases the effect is damaging not only to individual species and populations, but to the natural biological communities as...

Ocean Analysis for November 17, 2012
2012-11-17 08:24:58

Point #1: Warm finger- This region inside the area marked number 1, represents a warm finger of the ocean temperatures. What is occurring is that the warmer air is being pushed faster in this region than the surrounding locations giving us this little finger of warmer temps in that region. Point #2: Warm Eddie- This is a region of warmer temps surrounded on all sides by colder water. Eddies are a closed circulation of water in the ocean that has in this case warmer temps around it. These...
