Latest Chemical oceanography Stories
Considered pollutants in the West, discharges help to feed millions in Egypt.
An international team of scientists has solved a mystery that has puzzled marine chemists for decades. They have discovered that fish contribute a significant fraction of the oceans' calcium carbonate production, which affects the delicate pH balance of seawater.
Scientists have learned that fish poop may be beneficial to maintaining the delicate balance of the Earthâ€™s oceans.
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.
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...
- The act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
- In medicine, cauterization.
