NASA's plan to bring samples from Mars back to Earth is on hold until there's a faster, cheaper way, space agency officials said Monday. Retrieving Mars soil and rocks has been on NASA's to-do list for decades,...
According to a research team led by paleontologists from the University of Vienna, the net-like leaf veining typical for today's flowering plants developed much earlier than previously thought, but died out again several times. Using new...

Atlantic Ocean near Bermuda is warmer and more acidic than ever, 40 years of observation show

Decade-long ocean warming that impacts ocean circulation, a decrease in oxygen levels that contributes to changes in salinification and nutrient supply, and ocean acidification...

The ocean’s first large swimming apex predators had exceptionally rapid growth, fossil study finds

The rapid diversification of animals over 500 million years ago—often referred to as the Cambrian Explosion—saw the appearance of the first large swimming predators...

Volcanic eruptions found to dampen Indian Ocean El Niño events for up to 8 years

Volcanic eruptions occurring in tropical regions (23°N/S of the equator) have been linked to abrupt disruption of global-scale climate cycles in the Indian Ocean...

Hidden ocean the source of carbon dioxide on Jupiter moon: Research

Carbon dioxide detected on Jupiter's moon Europa comes from the vast ocean beneath its icy shell, research using James Webb Space Telescope data indicated...

Are deep blue seas fading? Oceans turn to new hue across parts of Earth, study finds

A large swath of Earth's oceans changed color over the past 20 years—and human activity is suspected to have caused it, a new study...

World’s oceans set new surface temperature record: EU monitor

The world's oceans set a new temperature record this week, raising concerns about knock-on effects on the planet's climate, marine life and coastal communities. The...

Dangerous slowing of Antarctic ocean circulation sooner than expected

Scientists have said that an acceleration of melting Antarctic ice and rising temperatures, driven by the emission of planet-warming gases, is expected to have...

In-situ observations of marine sedimentary rocks suggest ancient northern ocean on Mars

An international research team led by Professor Long Xiao from the School of Earth Sciences of China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) has discovered the...

El Niño is coming, and ocean temps are already at record highs. That can spell disaster for fish and corals

It's coming. Winds are weakening along the equatorial Pacific Ocean. Heat is building beneath the ocean surface. By July, most forecast models agree that...

Scientists identify heat wave at bottom of ocean

The 2013-2016 marine heat wave known as "The Blob" warmed a vast expanse of surface waters across the northeastern Pacific, disrupting West Coast marine...

Mysteries of Earth: Researchers predict how fast ancient magma ocean solidified

Early in the formation of Earth, an ocean of magma covered the planet's surface and stretched thousands of miles deep into its core. The...

Marine plankton tell the long story of ocean health, and maybe human too

Using samples from an almost century-old, ongoing survey of marine plankton, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine suggest that rising...
