Climate change caused by ocean, not just atmosphere, new Rutgers study finds
(Rutgers University) Most of the concerns about climate change have focused on the amount of greenhouse gases that have been released into the atmosphere. Read about a Rutgers study published in Science that reveals another equally important factor in regulating the earth's climate.

Satellite catches lingering remnants of Tropical Depression 9
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NOAA's GOES-East satellite has been keeping an eye on the remnants of Tropical Depression 9.

NASA sees Tropical Storm Ana still vigorous
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's TRMM satellite saw that Tropical Storm Ana was still generating moderate rainfall is it pulled away from Hawaii. The next day, NASA's Aqua satellite saw that wind shear was having an effect on the storm as it moved over open ocean.

US Navy awards $8 million to develop wave, tidal energy technology
(University of Washington) The University of Washington was awarded an $8 million, four-year contract to develop marine renewable energy technologies appropriate for naval facilities.

Seismic network will measure the effects of ocean waves on Antarctic ice shelves
(University of California - San Diego) Starting in November, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego, researchers and colleagues will embark on an ambitious and arduous mission funded by the National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs to install a seismic array on Antarctica's Ross Ice Shelf.

NASA's Terra satellite shows a more organized Tropical Storm Ana
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The strong southwesterly wind shear that has been battering Tropical Storm Ana has abated and has given the storm a chance to re-organize. Ana appeared more rounded on imagery from NASA's Terra satellite as thunderstorms again circled the low-level center.

Sea turtles' first days of life: A sprint and a ride towards safety
(Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (GEOMAR)) With new nano-sized acoustic transmitters, scientists from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, the Turtle Foundation and Queen Mary University of London followed the pathways of loggerhead turtle hatchlings. According to the study, which was primarily funded by the Kiel Cluster of Excellence 'The Future Ocean,' local oceanic conditions are believed to drive the evolution of some unique swimming behaviors. The results are published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

Distant planets provide a glimpse of the future of Earth's oceans
(University of Leicester) The impact of climate change and over-exploitation on oceans is explored in new book by Leicester geologists.

New insights on carbonic acid in water
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) A new study by Berkeley Lab researchers provides valuable new insight into aqueous carbonic acid with important implications for both geological and biological concerns.

NASA's Terra Satellite sees wind shear affecting Tropical Storm Ana
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Ana was being battered by wind shear when NASA's Terra satellite passed overhead and saw the bulk of showers and thunderstorms pushed north and east of the center.
