Salty oceans can forecast rain on land

At this week's American Geophysical Union meeting, a team of researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) presented their latest research findings on the long-range predictions of rainfall on land. Their method is based on ocean salinity rather than sea surface temperatures, which has been the standard for decades.

New studies take a second look at coral bleaching culprit

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) When it comes to coral health, superoxide -- a natural toxin all oxygen-breathing organisms produce -- gets a bad rap.

New study explains mysterious source of greenhouse gas methane in the ocean

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) For decades, marine chemists have faced an elusive paradox. The surface waters of the world's oceans are supersaturated with the greenhouse gas methane, yet most species of microbes that can generate the gas can't survive in oxygen-rich surface waters.

Acoustic buoy now detecting rare, endangered whales in New York Bight

An acoustic buoy recently deployed by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and WCS's (Wildlife Conservation Society) New York Aquarium is making its first near real-time detections of two rare great whale species in the New York Bight, including the highly endangered North Atlantic right whale.

Study reveals previously unknown component of whale songs

Researchers have known for decades that whales create elaborate songs, sometimes projecting their calls for miles underwater. A new study from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), however, has revealed a previously unknown element of whale songs that could aid this mode of communication, and may play a pivotal role in locating other whales in open ocean.

New 13-year study tracks effects of changing ocean temperature on phytoplankton

A new multiyear study from scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has shown for the first time how changes in ocean temperature affect a key species of phytoplankton. The study, published in the October 21 issue...Show More Summary

New 13-year study tracks effects of changing ocean temperature on phytoplankton

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) A new multiyear study has shown for the first time how changes in ocean temperature affect a key species of phytoplankton. The study tracked levels of Synechococcus -- a tiny bacterium common in marine ecosystems -- near the coast of Massachusetts over a 13-year period. Show More Summary

Flood Study Finds 'Things Are Going to Get Worse'

More grim news from researchers using computer model projections and historical data to predict future weather changes. Scientists at Rutgers University, Princeton University, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are reporting in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that, based on the accelerated rate of climate change in...

Study reveals corals' influence on reef microbes

(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution) As they grow, corals are bathed in a sea of marine microbes, such as bacteria, algae, and viruses. While these extremely abundant and tiny microorganisms influence coral communities in a variety...Show More Summary

Researchers predict growing number of Hurricane Sandy-like storm surges

(Princeton University, Engineering School) Researchers from Princeton and Rutgers universities and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution have developed a computer simulation that estimates that storm-related flooding on the New York City coastline similar in scale to those seen during Sandy are likely to become more common in coming decades.

Underwater soundscape may offer clues to coral health and aid reef conservation

A new study from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) will help researchers understand the ways that marine animal larvae use sound as a cue to settle on coral reefs. The study, published on August 23rd in the online journal...Show More Summary

Study finds increased ocean acidification due to human activities

(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Oceanographers from MIT and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution report that the northeast Pacific Ocean has absorbed an increasing amount of anthropogenic carbon dioxide over the last decade, at a rate that mirrors the increase of carbon dioxide emissions pumped into the atmosphere.
