Using a world-first scientific discovery, Australian researchers are developing a stress-test for coral, to measure how coral reefs are being impacted by pressures from climate change and human activity.
Scientists have discovered corals at Australia’s Great Barrier Reef at depths that were previously believed to be uninhabitable.
Time may be running out on the world’s coral reefs which could be severely victimized by rising global temperatures and carbon dioxide levels
Australian marine scientists have expressed disquiet over the continued worldwide spread of large, dead zones in the ocean.
The first comprehensive synthesis on the effects of climate change on the world's oceans has found they are now changing at a rate not seen for several million years.
The skeptics who frequently deny the reality of climate change in the worldâ€™s media lack all scientific credibility, charge three eminent Australian researchers who have just been listed among the worldâ€™s 20 most influential scientists in the field of climate change.
The rise in human emissions of carbon dioxide is driving fundamental and dangerous changes in the chemistry and ecosystems of the worldâ€™s oceans.
To have even a chance of saving the worldâ€™s coral reefs from extensive damage caused by global warming, carbon emissions in industrialized countries need to be cut by 25% below their year 2000 levels by 2020 â€“ and by 80-90% by 2050.
Australian marine scientists have issued an urgent call for massive and rapid worldwide cuts in carbon emissions, deep enough to prevent atmospheric CO2 levels rising to 450 parts per million.
