Rising temperatures are curbing ocean’s capacity to store carbon If there is anywhere for carbon dioxide to disappear in large quantities from the atmosphere, it is into the Earth’s oceans. There, huge populations of plankton can soak up carbon ...
BLUEcoast introduction BLUEcoast aims to inform shoreline management by increasing the certainty within the prediction of medium-term (years) and long-term (decadal and longer) regional sediment budgets, morphological change and how the coast ...
The Doodson-Lege tidal prediction machine being put back together Time-lapsed footage of the Doodson-Lege tidal predicting machine being put back together by National Museums Liverpool. The machine was then brought home to the National Oceanography Centre to be put ...
Batteries that “drink” seawater could power long-range underwater vehicles The long range of airborne drones helps them perform critical tasks in the skies. Now MIT spinout Open Water Power (OWP) aims to greatly improve the range of unpiloted underwater ...
High-speed images capture archer fish’s rocket-like launch The archer fish is arguably the ninja of the aquatic world, known for its stealth-like, arrow-straight aim while shooting down unsuspecting prey. Once the fish has sighted its target, it ...

Underwater mountains help ocean water rise from abyss At high latitudes, such as near Antarctica and the Arctic Circle, the ocean’s surface waters are cooled by frigid temperatures and become so dense that they sink a few thousand ...
New study sets oxygen-breathing limit for ocean’s hardiest organisms Around the world, wide swaths of open ocean are nearly depleted of oxygen. Not quite dead zones, they are “oxygen minimum zones,” where a confluence of natural processes has led ...
Joern Callies and Jill McDermott win Carl-Gustaf Rossby Awards for PhD theses Joern Callies PhD '16 and Jill McDermott PhD '15 were recently honored with the the Carl-Gustaf Rossby Award, given for the best PhD thesis completed within MIT's Program in Atmospheres, Oceans ...
Ira Dyer, professor emeritus of ocean engineering, dies at 91 Ira Dyer, professor emeritus of ocean engineering, died peacefully at his home on Oct. 9 at the age of 91.
Dyer’s distinguished career, with a specialty in acoustics, spanned over ...
Raffaele Ferrari receives Cody Award in Ocean Sciences Raffaele Ferrari, the Cecil and Ida Green Professor in Earth and Planetary Sciences and Director of the MIT Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate, has been selected to receive the ...
Researchers find explanation for interacting giant, hidden ocean waves In certain parts of the ocean, towering, slow-motion rollercoasters called internal tides trundle along for miles, rising and falling for hundreds of feet in the ocean’s interior while making barely ...
Computing the ocean’s true colors When she was 17, Stephanie Dutkiewicz set sail from her native South Africa to the Caribbean islands. Throughout a three-month journey, she noticed that the color of the ocean shifted ...
Study finds increased ocean acidification due to human activities Oceanographers from MIT and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution report that the northeast Pacific Ocean has absorbed an increasing amount of anthropogenic carbon dioxide over the last decade, at a rate ...
Microscale marine interactions may shape critical carbon cycles In 1930, the deep-sea explorer William Beebe became the first to observe “marine snow,” an ever-present undersea shower of flocculent organic particles composed of dead phytoplankton, zooplankton fecal pellets, and ...
Southern Ocean cooling in a warming world Around the world, scientists are observing evidence of climate change — record high temperatures, rising sea levels, and melting ice sheets. But new research from MIT’s Program in Atmospheres, Oceans ...
