Waterways Program Features the Impacts of Ocean Acidification on Coral Reefs

As the global ocean becomes more acidic, NOAA is documenting these changes and their impact on organisms like corals. The latest episode of the educational television series “Waterways” features coral research conducted by NOAA scientists in the Florida Keys.

A new approach to understanding El Nino’s evolution

From its onset to decay, the El Niño-Southern Oscillation plays an important role in affecting long-term global weather patterns through changes in sea surface temperature. Our study provides a new, efficient approach to explore these differences during El Niño’s evolution.

Piecing back together an enzyme to understand its biological function

Enzymes vastly enhance the rates with which biological reactions occur. Since the early 20th century, scientists have studied the mechanisms by which enzymes function. Here, we analyzed the structure and function of a ubiquitous enzyme (HSP70) that maintains cellular homeostasis.

Biodiversity in the Mediterranean is threatened by alien species

We investigated how human activities have influenced biodiversity in the Mediterranean Sea through the introduction of non-native species.

Some deep-water coral reefs have the potential to help nearby shallow corals recover from disturbances

In one of the first studies examining the genetic relationship between shallow and deep reefs in the Caribbean, we found that shallow reefs are more likely to rebound faster when receiving their larval supply from distant shallow reefs compared to nearby deep reefs, but not at all locations.
