Acidifying Waters Put Dungeness Crabs at Risk

New research shows acidification caused by carbon dioxide kills and stunts baby Dungeness crabs.

Abrupt Atlantic Ocean Changes May Have Been Natural

A slowdown in Atlantic currents that worsened blizzards, floods and hurricanes may have been natural.

Global Warming Will Hit Poorer Countries Hardest

Tropical regions are likely to suffer the biggest increase in hot days and extreme weather, scientists say.

Marine Parks Help Global Fish Stocks Withstand Warming

A powerful link has been found between the biodiversity of a reef and the size of the fisheries it supports.

Sea Level Rise Could Help Marshes Ease Flooding

Marshes are used to reduce flooding, and new research shows how they could flourish as seas rise.

Ocean Acidification Making It Harder For Fish to Breathe

Climate change's combined effects of falling oxygen levels and rising acidity threaten ocean wildlife.

Florida Dredging Would Cut Path Across Corals in ‘Crisis’

A raucous debate is swirling in Florida over plans to dredge vulnerable corals to expand a shipping port.

Hurricanes Boost Carbon Storage in Southeastern Forests

Hurricanes supercharge forests' ability to store carbon, Duke University researchers have found.

Coral Deaths Threaten Coasts With Erosion, Flooding

Coral reefs reduce wave heights by two-thirds on average, protecting coasts from floods and erosion.

Florida Reefs Are Dissolving Much Sooner Than Expected

Ocean acidification is causing reefs in Florida to dissolve decades ahead of previous predictions.

Global Warming Is Starving West Coast Waters of Oxygen

Global warming is reducing oxygen supplies for marine wildlife along the West Coast and elsewhere.

Climate Change is ‘Devastating’ The Great Barrier Reef

New modeling is a "smoking gun" linking climate change with record Great Barrier Reef bleaching.

With The Paris Agreement Signed, Hard Work Begins

Developing a system under which climate pledges are reviewed and improved is 'essential' for success.

Fate of World’s Coastlines Rests on Melting Antarctic Ice

Scientists don't know how much flooding Antarctic melting will cause — but it may wipe out cities.

This Is How Surfers Are Helping Fund Climate Science

The World Surf League has started a unique partnership with Columbia University climate scientists.

Bleaching Has Hit 93 Percent of the Great Barrier Reef

The vast majority of the world's largest reef ecosystem has been ravaged by coral bleaching.

Sinking Atlantic Coastline Meets Rapidly Rising Seas

The East Coast is sinking, which is worsening the impacts of sea level rise. These are the hot spots.

There’s a Hopeful Message Hidden in These Dead Reefs

Coral that survived a massive bleaching event could hold a climate change adaptation secret.

Nenana Ice Classic: 100 Years

The rapidly warming Arctic is already impacting Alaska, as earlier ice breakups on the Tanana River are more likely.

Greenland’s Melt Season Started Nearly Two Months Early

Warm, wet weather helped set a record for the earliest start to the Greenland ice sheet melt season.
