Once scientists could only observe Earth from above by using manned aircraft or satellites. Today they’re using drones to expand their research as never before.
During the last glacial period, there were lakes under Antarctica’s ice sheet, which may have accelerated the retreat of glaciers in the past.
Sonya Dyhrman studies marine microbes and the role they play in producing oxygen, capturing carbon dioxide, and fueling the marine food web.
A new study shows how Antarctic sea ice migration may be more important for the global ocean circulation than anyone realized.
Mesoscale turbulence is where most of the kinetic energy in the oceans can be found, and it may play powerful roles in the global climate.
A team of oceanographers says much of the heat trapped in the atmosphere by greenhouse gases is being soaked up and stored by the oceans–at least for now.
