  The Dark and Noisy Ocean Depths
"The impact of ocean noise pollution may be minimized by diminishing the noise source or by separating the noise from things that are sensitive to it," he said.
A 2003 report by the National Research Council Committee on Potential Impacts of Ambient Noise in the Ocean on Marine Mammals recommended that a federal agency should be mandated to investigate and monitor marine noise and the possible long-term effects on marine life.
The agency would serve as a sponsor for research on ocean noise, the effects of noise on marine mammals, and long-term trends in ocean noise.

 NASA - Ocean Sponging Up Some Warmth Over Next 50 Years
The enhanced GCM showed the world's oceans were storing heat at a rate of about 0.2 Watts per square meter in 1951, and in the past 50 years, as atmospheric temperatures warmed, the rate of heat storage increased to about.75 Watts per square meter, capturing more heat from the atmosphere.
Ocean temperature readings currently do not reach full ocean depths, as is needed to increase the accuracy of future predictions.
With the new Ocean Models included in the GCM, if easurements of the amount of heat held by oceans are improved, it may be possible to begin to better quantify the Earth's changing radiation imbalance and its causes with an accuracy of about one decade.

 Written Testimony on Ocean Exploration
Ocean exploration is the systematic observation of all facets of the ocean (biological, physical, chemical, geological, archeological, etc.) in all three dimensions of space and the fourth dimension of time.
Ocean exploration leaves a legacy of carefully documented information for posterity, to address questions we do not know enough to even pose at the time that the data are collected.
Ocean exploration leads to great, but largely unpredictable, rewards: cures for diseases from novel biological compounds, untapped mineral, energy, and biological resources, insight as to how the ocean system functions, geological and biological vistas of unsurpassed beauty, appreciation for mankind’s maritime past.

 WHOI : Oceanus : Red Tides and Dead Zones
Dark green or fl patches near the shore indicate blooms of marine plants.
In the ocean, as on the land, photosynthesis combines energy from the Sun, carbon dioxide, and nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus to produce carbon-rich plant material.
But there is little doubt that, by increasing the level of nutrients in the ocean, human activities have increased the frequency, extent, and severity in these areas and throughout the coastal ocean.

 History of the Ocean - MarineBio.org
It is locked in a perpetual cycle of birth and destruction that shapes the ocean and controls much of the geology and geological history of the continents.
Connected or marginal to the main ocean basins are various shallow seas, such as the Mediterranean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico and the South China Sea.
The geological distinction between ocean and continents is caused by the physical and chemical differences in the rocks themselves, rather than whether or not the rocks happen to be covered with water.

Industrial society is overdosing the oceans with basic nutrients — the nitrogen, carbon, iron and phosphorous compounds that curl out of smokestacks and tailpipes, wash into the sea from fertilized lawns and cropland, seep out of septic tanks and gush from sewer pipes.
Though he had seen firsthand that ocean habitats were deteriorating, he believed in the resilience of the seas, in their inexhaustible capacity to heal themselves.
We stoke the ocean with energy streaming off the land, he said, and with no clear pathways up the food chain, this energy fuels an explosion of microbial growth.

I look at how scientists have determined the mass discrepancy, what they think dark matter is and how they are looking for it, and how dark matter fits into current theories about the origin and the fate of the universe.
Today, scientists are searching for the mysterious dark matter not only to explain the gravitational motions of galaxies, but also to validate current theories about the origin and the fate of the universe.
Without dark matter, critical density lies somewhere between 0.1 and 0.01, and we live in an open universe.

 ECO-PROS Ocean Home
Oceans and marine life consume huge amounts of carbon dioxide, and more oxygen is produced and released through oceanic photosynthesis than by all the earth's terrestrial (land) plants and forests combined.
The ocean is comprised of vast "dynamic biomes that are among the richest and most productive ecosystems on Earth." As we continue to degrade the health of the ocean and marine habitat, we risk extinction of species and destruction of the functions and life-sustaining processes of Earth's natural systems.
The Ocean Alliance is dedicated to the conservation of whales and their ocean environment through research and education.

 MILSTEIN HALL OF OCEAN LIFE | American Museum of Natural History
Hall of Ocean Life at the American Museum of Natural History, one of New York's best-known grand spaces and home to the celebrated 94-foot-long model of a blue whale, reopened to the public on Saturday, May 17, 2003.
For example, in the Dolphin and Tuna diorama, schools of tuna, bait fish, flying fish, and seabirds have joined the short-beaked common dolphins to re-create the energy of a typical multi-species feeding frenzy in the East Pacific waters and to demonstrate the interdependence of species within marine ecosystems.
An exhibit highlighting the evolution of life in the ancient oceans features three of the Museum's luminous historical dioramas built in the 1960s using wax models to depict the diversity of ocean life in the Ordovician, Permian, and Cretaceous periods (from 450 to 70 million years ago).

 Ocean Pollution
Pollution in the ocean is a major problem that is affecting the ocean and the rest of the Earth, too.
After that, the garbage pollutes the ocean, kills plants and animals in the water (for example, the plastic rings that are around pop cans can get around an animal’s neck, causing it to suffocate), and makes the water dirty.
One other way ocean layers are affected by global warming is that warm water, caused by global warming, is hurting and even killing algae which is what some fish in the sunlight zone eat.

WASHINGTON - Proof that a mysterious force called “dark energy” is pushing the universe to expand endlessly at a faster and faster rate has been selected as the “Breakthrough of the Year” by the editors of Science magazine.
Proof for the existence of the “dark force” came from two studies that probed the very early universe — back to less than 400,000 years after the Big Bang — and confirmed that the universe was expanding at a faster rate.
The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe telescope analyzed the cosmic microwave radiation background, an echo from the Big Bang, and determined the age and composition of the universe.

 Arecibo Survey Produces Dark Galaxy Candidate
Dark galaxies could help explain where part of the so-called missing mass of the universe is hiding.
Neutral hydrogen is found in most galaxies and is considered a key tool in the search for dark galaxies, because it can be detected even when there are no stars or other radiation sources shining.
Reporting at a meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society, Auld said the AGES team used the Arecibo radio telescope to search the neutral-hydrogen wavelength for galaxies that have remained hidden from astronomers in the past.

Unlike dark matter, which is believed to have slowed down the expansion of the universe for several billion years owing to its gravitational tug, dark energy does not become diluted over time.
