Explore The Gravity, Caribbean Sea, and more!

The Caribbean Sea produces a unique sound that can be detected from space because of the effect it has on the gravity field.  The pattern of wave movement combined with underwater geography in the Caribbean Sea transform the basin into a "whistle" and produce a unique sound too low to hear. (2016-06-23)

Arctic sea ice hits record low

"This is not a record to be proud of. Low sea ice can create a series of reactions that further threaten the Arctic and the rest of the globe." - Alexander Shestakov, director of the WWF Global Arctic Programme

find your ecological footprint!! My result: "if everyone lived like you do, we would need only 0.79 Earths" :)

Ecological Footprint Quiz (website) Take the ecological footprint quiz to see how many planets it would take to sustain your lifestyle, and find out how you can reduce your footprint.

Despite environmental progress, the threat of rising seas must be countered by increased international cooperation and leadership from the United States.

Arctic sea winter time ice extent hits record low: NASA :http://gurumavin.com/arctic-sea-ice-wintertime-extent-hits-record-low-nasa/

Although the area of Arctic sea ice set a record this year for its lowest ever winter extent, the volume was about thicker this year. Importantly, however, the long-term trend in volume is still downwards.

As Glaciers Melt in Alaska, Landslides Follow

As the glaciers that support them melt, mountainsides around Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska are giving way, causing seismic tremors and tsunamis.

it's not just that a warming world is scary, it's that the rate of change is unprecidented

Ocean Acidification Is Worse Than It's Been for 300 Million Years

if industrial carbon emissions continue at the current pace, we may lose organisms we care about — coral reefs, oysters, salmon .
