Corals die as global warming collides with local weather in the South China Sea

In the South China Sea, a 2°C rise in the sea surface temperature in June 2015 was amplified to produce a 6°C rise on Dongsha Atoll, a shallow coral reef ecosystem, killing approximately 40 percent of the resident coral community within weeks, according to a study published in Scientific Reports this week.

Scientists receive grant to study how climate change and ocean acidification affect marine organisms

Mote Marine Laboratory scientist Dr. Emily Hall and Eckerd College scientist Dr. Cory Krediet recently received a Protect Our Reefs license plate grant to study ocean acidification and climate change conditions on corals using a sea anemone as a model organism. As many as 50 percent of the marine animals, plants and other organisms in […]

Google Top Stories Serves Breitbart Bullshit on Climate Science

22 hours agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Coral reef experts and climate scientists agree that due to rising temperatures, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is pretty much fucked. But when you search Google for “Great Barrier Reef,” that’s not all that you’ll find. Instead, at the very top of the page in the Top Stories module, you’ll see a Breitbart article… Read more...

Coral reefs in the face of ecological threats of the 21st century

To date, more than a quarter of tropical coral reefs of the World Ocean are believed to be totally destroyed. Given the present rate of reef degradation, this value may double in the nearest 30 years. For a significant part of the coastal population of the planet, the destruction of coral ecosystems implies the loss […]
