It is not only directly on the water, as here on Hudson Bay, that the ocean influences. A new study shows that in addition to man-made global warming, regional variations are also to be expected. Photo: Ulrike Herzschuh

How the ocean affects climate on land

For the first time, researchers have drawn a map showing how much regional temperature has fluctuated over the past 8000 years

Climate on land appears to be much more variable than currently simulated in climate models. The reason for this is the oceanic influence, which shapes the ...

New study on changing sea levels

A new study of shorelines in the Bahamas may change estimates of past sea levels. Here, some of the authors survey coastal rocks on the archipelago’s Crooked Island formed when sea levels were higher. Photo: Blake Dyer

Phytoplankton contributes to CO2 reduction

Sub-sampling of core sediments collected from the ocean floor for microscopic studies. Because the organisms that are being investigated are very tiny, a “toothpick” sample is usually enough for this kind of analysis. Photo: Nina Rooks Cast
