A Ship Graveyard in Lake Erie

The shallowest of the Great Lakes has one of the greatest concentrations of shipwrecks in the world.

NASA Releases New Dataset of Cyanobacteria in Over 2,300 Lakes in the U.S.

Lakes provide drinking water for people, habitat for plants and wildlife, and a place to fish, boat and swim. But the water can become harmful to humans, animals and the ecosystem when toxic algae called cyanobacteria reach abnormally high levels due to warm, nutrient-rich water conditions.

Green Seaweed in the Yellow Sea

In June 2021, algal slicks painted the waters green off Qingdao, China, during the region’s largest bloom on record.

Passing Clouds Cause Some Marine Animals to Make Mini-Migrations During the Day

With data collected during the EXport Processes in the Ocean from Remote Sensing (EXPORTS) field campaign in 2018 to the Northeastern Pacific Ocean, scientists have now shown that some zooplankton living in the twilight zone of the ocean at depths greater than 300 meters swim up and down also in response to shifts in light due to cloud cover.

A Hawk’s Eye View of Australia’s Red Center

Soils in the center of the continent—including those around the famous rock formations of Uluru and Kata-Tjuta—come in striking shades of red.

How can snow cover on the Himalayas influence the species that thrive in the ocean a thousand kilometers away?

Coastal North Queensland

Tour the Australian state’s diverse landscapes and waterscapes.

Algae Abound Along Florida Coast

Tampa Bay is teeming with Karenia brevis months before it usually blooms.

Five Ways NASA Helps With Shark Conservation

While scientists at our partner institutions are directly focusing on shark conservation, NASA's Earth-observing satellites collect key information about sharks' habitat – the ocean.

Fact: Over 70 percent of our planet's oxygen is produced by the ocean.

Tracking Carbon from the Ocean Surface to the Twilight Zone

A seaward journey funded by NASA and the National Science Foundation sets sail in the northern Atlantic for the month of May???the sequel to a complimentary, and yet contrasting, expedition that took place in the northern Pacific in 2018.

Downstream Consequences: How NASA Satellites Track Harmful Algal Blooms

Fertilizers used in farming contain high amounts of nutrients, such as phosphorous, to help crops grow. But these same nutrients can cause unwanted plant growth and potentially harm ecosystems miles away if agricultural runoff flows into nearby rivers, lakes, or coastal waters.
