'Dead zone' area shrinking, Texas A&M prof says

...on features, such as eddies, that intrude onto the continental shelf. We think this could break down the hypoxia in the area as well." The NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) study, conducted from Texas A&M's research ship R/V Gyre, stretched from an area near Southwest Pass, La., to the Calca...

Wolverine takes a road trip

... Inman. Wolverines were nearly eliminated from the continental U.S. by around 1920, though some recolonization has taken place in recent decades. However, little is known about these rare carnivores, and previous proposals to list them as a federally threatened species have been rejected due to a lack of data ...

Unicellular organisms contribute more nitrogen to ocean that reported earlier

...regions of nutrient-poor oceans typically off the continental shelves from the equator north and south to about 40 degrees latitude about which little or nothing is known in regard to unicellular nitrogen-fixing organisms, Montoya noted. "We are still at a very early stage in understanding ocean science and ho...

New hypoxic event found off Oregon coast

... of low oxygen water formed but was pushed off the continental shelf by shifting winds and caused little damage," said Francis Chan, an OSU research associate with PISCO. "Then two months ago, we saw the early signs of another hypoxic event, and we believe we're now in the process of another dead zone event." I...

Droughts like 1930s Dust Bowl may have been unexceptional in prehistoric times, new study suggests

...of the climate models predict increased aridity in continental interiors in the future," Clark said. "One could speculate that the droughts could be all that much worse when you realize that it's not only climate change from changing CO2 content in the atmosphere, but also this natural variability out there that...

A changing landscape may have dire implications for birds

...uman population has grown significantly across the continental United States since the 1970s, Lepczyk says the number of houses sprouting up in previously undeveloped areas is likely having a greater impact than the raw number of humans inhabiting the landscape.

The deep waters offer "great potential for species discovery ... Deep-sea areas worldwide have been shown to harbor more species than previously ...

New version of premier global climate model released

...e. The new version also captures such features as continental land temperatures and upper atmospheric temperatures far more accurately than the previous version. In a test, the model closely simulated changes in global temperatures over the last century. In addition to simulating temperatures over the...

Two billion vulnerable to floods by 2050; number expected to double or more in two generations

... Hemisphere will likely see more storms while some continental areas might have drier summers and more risk of drought. Sea levels could rise, fed in part by melt-water from glaciers and ice caps. Along with this, extreme high-water levels may occur with increasing frequency. Higher sea levels could inundate s...

Trapping carbon in soil key for protecting global food security, dealing with climate change

Two dinosaurs from Africa give clues to continents' split

...India finally split from each other as a result of continental drift. Before these discoveries, abelisaurids were virtually unknown on Africa, leading some to suggest that Africa had split off first from the southern landmass Gondwana, perhaps as early as 120 million years ago. The new fossils indicate that Afri...

Guiding gas exploration: U-M research offers inexpensive tool

...the world, and a lot of these have been covered by continental ice sheets, so these may represent areas where freshwater has penetrated into basins and microbial gas has been generated." To explore that idea, McIntosh compiled water chemistry data from basins in Africa, Asia and North America. "I was able to see...
