A new technique uses the level of salt in the ocean at its surface to forecast how seasonal precipitation over land will alter due to climate change.
The future of Africa’s “blue economy” is promising but depends on effective management. Both its failures and successes can teach us much about marine protection.
Underwater archaeology is incredibly dangerous and expensive but a new model can map shipwrecks with 92% accuracy, reducing time, costs and risks involved.
As pressure grows on companies to account for their impact on nature, carbon offsets — in short, nature itself — can now become a larger part of the solution.
Rising sea levels could put 300,000 US homes at risk by 2045. California is planning a 'managed retreat' roadmap with a 'buyout' funding plan to counter the threat.

Underwater farming could prove a more sustainable alternative to traditional agriculture by growing crops such as strawberries and herbs under the sea.
A new study has mapped the world's blue carbon from marine and coastal ecosystems to highlight how natural sinks redistribute blue carbon around the globe.
Through the course of their work, scientists from around the world have made marine science more accessible to global audiences.
To regrow a stretch of coral reef, first break some coral into tiny pieces. It might sound strange, but micro-fragmentation offers hope for marine biodiversity.
