Latest Seawater Stories
USGS hydrologists drilling into the largest crater in the country have stumbled across an amazing discovery – the oldest body of seawater ever unearthed.
The first step in developing a cost-effective micro sensor for long-term monitoring of ocean acidification has been achieved by a team of scientists and engineers.
Acidification of the Arctic Ocean is occurring faster than projected according to new findings published in the journal PLoS One.
Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin (UT) and the University of Marburg in Germany have created a simple and efficient way to create drinking water from sea water.
A new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide has been demonstrated by scientists. The new technique also generates carbon-negative hydrogen and produces alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification.
The saltiness of the oceans is being closely monitored from space by both ESA’s SMOS and NASA’s Aquarius missions, but in slightly different ways. By joining forces, researchers are exploiting these complementary missions to benefit climate science even further.
Marine scientists have long understood the detrimental effect of fossil fuel emissions on marine ecosystems.
salty water from the vast liquid ocean beneath Europa’s frozen exterior actually makes its way to the surface.
A continental-scale chemical survey in the waters of the eastern U.S. and Gulf of Mexico is helping researchers determine how distinct bodies of water will resist changes in acidity.
Salt is a necessity for life, yet too much of it can have detrimental effects, such as hypertension or kidney failure in humans. New research from a team of American biochemists has discovered how mammals’ tongues are equipped to guard against ingesting high concentrations of salt.
