Latest Chemical oceanography Stories
Science have probed the climate secrets of the Marianas Trench in the western Pacific Ocean.
Large hypoxic zones low in oxygen long have been thought to have negative influences on aquatic life, but a Purdue University study shows that while these so-called dead zones have an adverse affect, not all species are impacted equally.
Persistent lack of oxygen in Earth's oceans affected animal evolution.
New results indicate potential to reduce certain greenhouse gas emissions from oceans to atmosphere.
Researchers have found compelling evidence for an extensive biological community living in porous rock deep beneath the seafloor.
Geo-microbiologists from Arizona State University have solved a long-standing conundrum about how some photosynthetic microorganisms, endolithic cyanobacteria, bore their way into limestone, sand grains, mussel shells, coral skeletons and other substrates composed of carbonate.
Australian marine scientists have expressed disquiet over the continued worldwide spread of large, dead zones in the ocean.
The ocean surface is 30 percent more acidic today than it was in 1800, much of that increase occurring in the last 50 years - a rising trend that could both harm coral reefs and profoundly impact tiny shelled plankton at the base of the ocean food web, scientists warn.
Eutrophication of the Baltic Sea has clear negative effects, such as dead bottoms and massive blooms of cyanobacteria.
Projects address concern for acidifying marine ecosystems.
Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...
