Latest Chemical oceanography Stories
Concern about increasing ocean acidification has often focused on its potential effects on coral reefs, but broader disruptions of biological processes in the oceans may be more significant.
Researchers have discovered that the ocean's chemical makeup is less stable and more greatly affected by climate change than previously believed.
Microorganisms in rivers and streams play a crucial role in the global carbon cycle that has not previously been considered.
Researchers now believe the ocean is growing more acidic faster than once thought, thanks to increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
Due to high growth and the uniqueness of their product line, Ocean's Flavor Sea Salt is expanding with the help of its production facility partner to meet that growing need. Ocean's Flavor produces a low-sodium, all natural sea salt.
A U.S. ecologist says he's found a commercially valuable species of clam thriving in oxygen-depleted waters of a so-called "dead zone" off the East Coast.
Coastal dead zones, an increasing concern to ecologists, the fishing industry and the public, may not be as devoid of life after all.
Scientists said Monday that the number of polluted "dead zones" in the world's oceans are increasing and coastal fish stocks are more at risk than once thought.
When I attend a middle school or high school career day, I often have a student tell me, "I want to be an oceanographer." But as we talk more, I realize that what the student really wants to be is a marine biologist.
The precise timing of the origin of life on Earth and the changes in life during the past 4.5 billion years has been a subject of great controversy for the past century.
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...
- A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
