Ocean acidification is literally causing a sea change, threatening the fundamental chemical balance of the ocean and coastal waters. The lower pH can create an “osteoporosis effect” that eats away the minerals used by coral reefs, oysters, clams, lobsters, shrimp and other marine life to build their shells and skeletons.
Last summer, a team of scientists reported on the satellite feat, which opened a window to one of the planet’s most puzzling features. The bioluminescent seas appear to originate when trillions of tiny bacteria light up in unison
A pair of scuba divers has captured rare video and photos of a 2.5-meter (eight-foot) giant squid swimming in the waters off Japan's west coast. The sheer size of the animal and its enormous eyes were striking, and Tanaka said he was imagining the power squid use to tackle whales, which are among their main predators.
