Oceanography

High atmospheric temperatures are causing profound and rapid changes around the Bering Strait -- the pace of which has startled scientists.
The U.S., EU, and 23 other countries will decide next month whether to protect the "heart of the world's ocean."
“I know we’re going to find something that no one’s ever seen before,” said the expedition’s chief scientist.

Here's what scientists recorded 7 miles beneath the surface of the ocean.
To understand this situation better, I spoke with two CSIRO climate scientists. Dr. John Church is one of the world's leading
This morning the decision was made to abandon the U.S.-Canadian GEOTRACES cross-over station due to rough weather.
Life at sea is a lot like middle school summer camp and it's not just the bunk beds and cafeteria style dining -- it's living with a collection of characters, working together, and learning to rely on each other.
Living conditions outside the cozy confines of our ship are harsh at best, but amazingly we've had a number of wildlife encounters over the past two weeks.
Ninety five percent of Earth's water lies in the ocean, and on a planet dominated by saltwater, mapping the chemistry of the global ocean requires a global effort.
"Ahoy shipmates, welcome to the North Pole." The announcement was piped through the ship's PA system at 7:47AM on Saturday, September 5, 2015. For the first time in history, the United States Coast Guard reached the North Pole without the accompaniment of a second icebreaker.
Sea ice accumulates in the Arctic Ocean during the winter when the tilt of the Earth's axis leaves the top of the world in complete darkness. Ice coverage reaches a maximum in mid-March and can cover up to 80 percent of the Arctic Ocean.
The chemistry of the ocean has a story to tell and with each sample of seawater we reveal new pieces of information -- where the water has been, how old it is, what it has gained from the atmosphere or coast, what it has lost.
And we're off! The U.S. GEOTRACES Arctic expedition departed Dutch Harbor on August 9th onboard the USCGC Healy.
I arrived in Dutch Harbor on Tuesday in a 30 passenger propeller plane. Scientists from all over the United States have been trickling in this week to prepare the Healy for our upcoming Arctic GEOTRACES expedition.
This summer, three separate research teams from the United States, Canada, and Germany are traveling to the Arctic Ocean to determine how mercury enters the basin and ultimately, the marine food web.
Warmer oceans will put the chill on sea turtle behavior, causing the endangered animals to stop basking on beaches within
(Story continues below infographic.) The research project analyzed sizes for storied sea creatures like whales and sharks
Maybe it's time to show a bit more respect to our scaly friends. Actually, another new study has shown that sharks do have
