What Does the Future Hold for America’s Coastal Cities?

Scientists have observed a rapidly-growing atmospheric carbon presence. Whatever your views on the cause of this phenomenon, the trend is confirmed and supported throughout the scientific community. And with increasing levels of atmospheric carbon, and the subsequent UV heat-trapping, global temperatures continue to rise. With warming atmospheric temperatures, ocean levels will also gradually increase, heralding […]Read More

Ocean Oxygen : Suffocating the Seas

Ocean breathing – From the shallows down to its yawning depths, the ocean gets its oxygen from the surface, supplied either by the atmosphere or from the release of oxygen in phytoplankton through photosynthesis. Scientists have long known that one expected consequence from a warming climate is a gradual drop in the amount of oxygen dissolved into […]Read More

Sea Surface Surface Temperatures Lead to Coral Bleaching Across the

A global coral bleaching event is underway that many scientists fear will surpass 1998, the last global coral die-off that bleached and killed 16 percent of the world’s coral. Already, rising sea surface temperatures have devastated coral off the coast of Indonesia after ocean temperatures in the coastal waters spiked to 93 degrees Fahrenheit earlier […]Read More
