A recent analysis of global models provides better estimates of how local sea level rise could differ from the global average.
A survey of the West Coast shellfish industry reveals that 80 percent of respondents believed ocean acidification is adversely affecting their businesses.
Quantifying the impacts of climate change on coastal areas has focused largely on the impacts of sea level rise. A recent study suggests other processes, including El Niño, might be equally important.
Ocean acidification might just be the greatest current threat to ocean life. A new study looks at how phytoplankton species may respond.
Climate change is expected to intensify spring and summer coastal upwelling, potentially threating some of world’s most productive marine ecosystems.
This winter’s El Niño is poised to be one of the strongest yet recorded. Here’s what that might mean for the Northwest.
