The Ocean is essential to life on Earth. Most of Earth's water is stored in the ocean. Although 40 percent of Earth's population lives within, or near coastal regions- the ocean impacts people everywhere. Without the ocean, our planet would be uninhabitable. This animation helps to convey the importance of Earth's oceanic processes as one component of Earth's interrelated systems. This animation uses Earth science data from a variety of sensors on NASA Earth observing satellites to measure physical oceanography parameters such as ocean currents, ocean winds, sea surface height and sea surface temperature. These measurements, in combination with atmospheric measurements such as surface air temperature, precipitation and clouds can help scientists understand the ocean's impact on weather and climate and what this means for life here on Earth. NASA satellites and their unique view from space are helping to unveil the vast... and largely unexplored.... OCEAN. NASA Earth Observing System Data and Information Systems (EOSDIS) EOSDIS is a distributed system of twelve data centers and science investigator processing systems. EOSDIS processes, archives, and distributes data from Earth observing satellites, field campaigns, airborne sensors, and related Earth science programs. These data enable the study of Earth from space to advance scientific understanding.

While researching climate change, we heard something confusing: the sea level in New York City is rising about one and a half times faster than the global average. We couldn’t figure out what that meant. Isn’t the sea level...flat? So we called up an expert and went down the rabbit hole. And, we did our best to visualize her truly bizarre answers with animations, dioramas, and a lot of melting ice.

We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

In this video Paul Andersen shows how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is causing a decrease in the pH of the oceans. The carbon dioxide combines with the water to create carbonic acid which dissociates into bicarbonate and carbonate anions. Decreased pH leads to lower metabolism and immune response in marine species. Increased bicarbonate makes it difficult to form shells and reefs of calcium carbonate.

With sea creatures dwindling at an alarming rate, many fish populations as well as our valuable reefs are on the brink of extinction. Here are 9 tragic truths about ocean pollution we can’t continue to ignore. SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos: https://goo.gl/7xzjzR Don't forget to CHECK OUT our latest upload: https://goo.gl/LUB8Xw Rubbish Cigarette butts, old worn fishing gear, tin and plastic containers from food and beverages, paper bags and one-time use products such as bottles, carrier bags, straws and utensils, are posing a huge threat to our planet, and our oceans in particular. According to the National Academy of Sciences, an estimated eight million tons of rubbish enter the world’s oceans every year. Land-based Pollution The release of minerals and toxic nutrients drain directly into our oceans which lend a reduction in oxygen levels, as well as a detriment to the quality of clean water and decaying of plant resources. Millions of motor engines release oil emissions and residue that fall onto our roads and parking lots; further, water pollution can even start off in the air. Dirt is a well-known pollutant that clogs up our waterways and settles in our oceans. Top soil and silt from fields and construction projects run into the ocean and severely threaten wildlife habitats as well. The dumping of toxic chemicals into the sea results in thermal pollution in which water temperatures rise. Ocean-based Pollution Twenty percent of marine pollution comes from ocean-based sources, such as those stemming from fishing, shipping, and cruise-ship industries. Another serious cause is contamination from efforts such as gold, copper, cobalt, and zinc mining. When the production of sulfide deposits as far as three thousand miles deep begin to infiltrate the water, the subsequent areas affected are ecosystems that survive at the lowest regions of our oceans. The growing toxicity from oil leaks, corrosion, and oil spills to these regions results in permanent damage to the marine habitats found there. Rubbish & The Repercussions According to a recent study conducted by the University of Georgia, enough waste ends up in our oceans every year to line every coast on the planet with five bulging bags of trash. If we continue the careless dance of disposing of our garbage by improper means, man-made items such as plastic bottles, aluminum cans, clothing, and other nonbiodegradable packaging products can reach the sea and get washed back ashore. Underwater Canyons According to a survey off the sunny coast of Monterey Bay, California, a discovery was made regarding the astonishing amount of litter lodged in the deeper parts of the canyon there. The Monterey Canyon is a famous underwater trench spanning ninety-five miles, and due to its depth of 11,800 feet, the canyon hosts many unique underwater organisms that make Monterey Bay an important ecological area. Home to the largest national marine sanctuary in the United States, Monterey Bay and its canyon play a dynamic role in aquatic health and biodiversity. The Imperfections of Plastic Scientists have determined that around the end of 2017, there was a 1:2 ratio of plastic to plankton permeating our waters. The number of plastics alone was estimated at around 150 million tons— approximately one fifth of the weight of all fish inhabiting our oceans! The study further concludes that if this problem isn’t solved soon, plastic will well outnumber fish by the year 2050. A Great Patch of Floating Trash There’s a patch of marine litter in the Pacific Ocean with many names: called the North Pacific Gyre by some, the Pacific Trash Vortex by others, and most commonly— the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The largest oceanic site for ocean plastic in the world, this titanic titan of trash sifts in the middle of the ocean between Hawaii and California. The GPGP is the biggest of five other plastic accumulation points located among our planet’s oceans. You Are what You Eat Due to the notion that seventy percent of our earth’s surface is covered in water, the general consensus is that pollutants will imminently dilute and then disappear. This may be the case if it weren’t for the 228.450 known species in the ocean (and another two million remaining a complete mystery), which must eat on a daily basis. Destruction & Extinction Each year, 100,000 sea mammals and organisms die from ocean pollution alone. More than 1/3 of shellfish populations growing in waters around the United States are subsequently harmed by coastal pollution. Our illustrious coral reefs are turning white and diminishing by the second, a direct cause of abandonment from algae, as algae are forced to seek alternative shelter unaffected by sunlight and thermal temperatures. Every year 300,000 dolphins and porpoises are killed by becoming entangled in fishing nets and other hazardous flotsam.

Greece has more than 16,000 kilometers (9,320 miles) of coastline, 200,000 beaches, 6,000 islands (and islets). Greece's coastline is by far the longest coastline in the Mediterranean sea, and the tenth longest in the world. The deepest point in the Mediterranean Sea is called the "Calypso Deep", it is located in the Ionian Sea in Greece, and is 5,267 meters deep (17,280 feet). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The quality of coastal bathing waters in Greece is systematically monitored since 1988 (according to Directive 76/160/EEC), and since then Greece has been receiving excellent reports on it's bathing water sites, with more than 95% of them meeting the most stringent guide values (excellent quality). According to the 2012 European bathing water quality report of the European Environment Agency, Greece and Cyprus have the cleanest coastal bathing waters in Europe. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Regardless of your location in Greece, a beach won't be far away. Beaches in Greece have a serene, peaceful atmosphere. Most beaches have shallow, calm, crystal clear waters that make them ideal for young children and families. Due to the country's peninsular shape, big waves do not usually reach the beaches, except those that are exposed to the open ocean, which are mostly preferred by windsurfers. Apart from the long wide sandy beaches, and those lined with pine (in the North), or palm (in Crete) trees and lush green grass in the north, there are many small rocky, pebbly inlets, perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving. There are also numerous remote beaches that are only accessible by boat, and other secluded naturalist beaches lining the coasts of Greece, where nudism is quite prevalent. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Conditions in various beach destinations in the world can differ greatly. During the tourist season, Tropical Weather (in contrast to Mediterranean Weather), can produce unpleasant atmospheric conditions like: Sudden storms, monsoons, floods, clouds, extreme humidity and precipitation, unpleasantly warm sea temperature, dangerous strong ocean rip currents that can pull swimmers away from the shore without them even noticing and huge waves that can cause sea water to lose its clarity and become foamy, murky and dirty. Moreover, due to vast presence of algae, low salinity/iodine levels, excessive bacterial and micro-organic activity (which can be highly pathogenic), the sea color in the Tropical Zones can obtain a repulsive, slimy green color. In contrast to the Tropics, Greek summer is always hot, calm, sunny, cloudless and dry and the Greek sea is blue, clear and a lot safer, not only health-wise but also due to the fact that encounters with dangerous/venomous sea creatures and organisms is extremely rare in Greece, as such species are not endemic to the Mediterranean region. (There is only one anecdotal tale of a fatal shark attack in the Greek islands, and that was reported nearly a century ago). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Video Info: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music: 00:00 - 07:08 "Salt Tank - Sargasso Sea" (InternalRecords) 07:09 - 09:08 "Mikro - Eikones" (UndoRecords/ EMI /Warner) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Pictures: Mainly from Flickr / Panoramio / Trekearth accounts.

Observations document that the Earth's ocean is warming. As the ocean warms, it will also expand in volume, causing sea level to rise. This rise is in addition to the sea level rise that results from water added from melting ice and snow on the land. Today, there are large human populations living in coastal areas worldwide that will be affected by rising sea level.

The Maldives is one of the wonders of the world. Located in the Indian Ocean and made of 1192 coral islands, it is also the world’s lowest lying country. The highest natural point is just 2.4 meters above sea level. Today, one of the main problems for Maldivians is water. And it is likely to get worse with Climate Change. While Northern islands face drinking water shortages during the dry season, from April to May, most Southern islands face a different problem: flooding.The United Nations Development Programme with support from the Green Climate Fund is supporting the Government of the Maldives, to ensure that most vulnerable islands have year-round access to potable water and that they can cope with floods on their own. Nearly half of its population lives in Male, the capital of the islands, in less than 1.4 square kilometers. The rest is spread over 186 small, scattered islands. Maldivians have lived for centuries from coconuts and fishing. There are no rivers or streams on any of the islands. Except for Malé and a handful of other islands, most islands rely on rain for drinking water. Islands affected by floods and shortages of potable water receive relief from the capital island Malé. Transportation costs are high with the Maldives scattered geography. This makes emergency relief very expensive for a government already struggling economically. Climate change is expected to bring stronger storms, and longer periods without rainfall. A rise in the ocean’s temperature and acidification has had devastating effects on coral reefs, affecting tourism and fisheries, both critical to the livelihoods of most Maldivians. Damaged reefs also function less effectively as a first line of defense against sea swells and flooding. Until the nineties, Maldivians used groundwater for drinking. But over the past decade, the groundwater of most islands got contaminated. The freshwater lenses of most islands was badly affected by the Tsunami of 2004 and poorly planned urbanization. As a result, today, rainwater, together with water produced using desalination and expensive bottled water are the only potable water options. In the past ten years, the National Disasters Management Center in Malé had to send emergency shipments of water to about half of the 186 inhabited islands during the dry season. An expensive solution that sometimes can take up to two weeks to arrive. Most households have one tank of 2500L and fill it by collecting rain from their roofs. Bigger families might even have 2 or 3 tanks, since one is not enough for them to make it through the dry season. When water supply ends, households cope by borrowing from neighbors, by buying bottled water or by receiving water relief from Male.

Check out the most mysterious ocean phenomena! From bizarre and strange deep sea mysteries to ocean phenomenon you won't believe actually exist, this top 10 list of unexplained natural phenoma is very mysterious! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "STRANGEST Artifacts Ever Discovered!" video here: https://youtu.be/gG0XGt3jFZA Watch our "SECRETS Casinos DON'T Want You To Find Out!" video here: https://youtu.be/hAoABuvzOZM Watch our "RAREST And Most EXPENSIVE Cars In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/MtCnWSqqilg 13. A Steaming Sea While not unknown in terms of cause, it is still mysterious that this happens at all. Above certain bodies of water, depending on temperature and the weather around it, a sea or ocean can actually appear to "steam". It has also been called other things like a foggy or smokey sea. 12. Sea Foam From "boiling" seas to seas that can apparently create foam, this is by and large one of the weirdest things that people can see if they go to the ocean. As you can see, it's literal foam, and it piles up rather high along the shoreline. Now, unlike the steam I showed you before, this one doesn't have a definitive explanation. 11. The Mystery Of The USS Scorpion The USS Scorpion was a nuclear submarine that disappeared in 1968. It was a fast attack submarine and was known for its special operations. It was able to film a soviet missile launch and flee the scene before being caught. There were 99 crewmen aboard and when it tried to deliver a signal, and failed to return to port on time, it was presumed lost. 10. Beached Whales You’ve probably all seen the pictures and footage of people trying to help a whale get off of the beach and into the water once more. It is a rare and impactful thing to see such a large creature stuck and helpless in the sand. But, have you ever asked...how did it get on the beach in the first place? 9. The Green Flash While not technically an ocean thing, it's a series of events that is influenced by the ocean. If you look at the sunrise or sunset over certain bodies of water, you'll sometimes see a "green flash". Have any of you seen it?? Let me know in the comments because I used to live near the beach but have never seen a green flash myself! 8. Underwater Volcanoes Now, everyone's heard of a Volcano, but, when you think of them, you likely think about the massive body of land rising from the depths, or a long dormant entity erupting with great power and destroying everything in its path like Pompeii. Yet, under the water, volcanoes erupt more than you think. In fact, it happens in a way that is both mysterious, and beautiful. 7. Rogue Waves Anyone who's sailed in seas with massive waves know that there are several things to fear. But few are as terrifying and fearsome as Rogue Waves. Though there are explanations as to why they happen, it doesn't help the ships that get hit by them. 6. Bimini Road All roads lead to Rome, and many people are wondering if that’s the case with Bimini Road in the Bahamas. Researchers and archaeologists of all kinds have come to study the huge, flat stones that are set perfectly for about half a mile long. 5. Red Tide Some of these phenomena are downright deadly. Such as the infamous Red Tide. No, not the Alabama football team, the actual Red Tide! This event is one of the most dangerous things threatening the ocean and its inhabitants, and it even threatens humanity. 4. The Convergence The Convergence is another name for the meeting of the Baltic Sea with the North Sea in Skagen, Denmark. These are two bodies of water that very naturally come together off the coast of Denmark. Here’s a map so you can see what I’m talking about!! 3. Bioluminescence For creatures under the sea, there are some who have learned a very interesting technique to ward off foes, Bioluminescence. Or more literally, the ability to make yourself glow. It's not hard to imagine the shock and fear of seeing something you're about to eat begin to glow with blinding light. 2. Atlantis The legend of Atlantis is one of the greatest stories ever told. But the question has always been, is it really a legend? The story goes as far back as Plato, who is not known to be a liar, and yet, despite numerous surveys of the ocean, it's never been found. 1. The Bermuda Triangle The holy grail, perhaps the most unexplained phenomena in the history of the oceans...the Bermuda Triangle. This place, which spans from Florida to Puerto Rico to Bermuda, has claimed the lives of many, and has sunken both ships and planes and many other things that dare to infringe upon its waters. Everyone was scared that you could go there and just disappear.

Global warming or climate change is on the rise. The increasing temperature of the Earth’s climate system not only determines our weather patterns but even the existence of the places we live. Here are some places in the world that will disappear in the next century!

New Orleans Hurricane Katrina was a disaster that New Orleans is still recovering from. Some experts believe the state of Louisiana may have the highest sea level rise compared to everywhere else in the world. The Big Easy sits at a shallow sea level, and it is already sinking. By the end of the 21st century, the Gulf of Mexico will surround the city. 8. Mount Kilimanjaro This iconic landscape in Tanzania has an elevation of 19,341 feet or 5,895 meters. Sure, we don’t necessarily have to worry about sea levels drowning out this mountain, but we should fear that 85% of the ice that covers the highest peak in Africa is now gone. It’s predicted that the glacier will remain on the mountain until 2020. That’s only a year away! 7. The Maldives Big cities around the world are riddled with pollution. Secluded islands like the Maldives are beloved because of the cleaner environment and pleasant temperatures. It goes to show that climate change does not discriminate. The Maldives is a low-lying area. To get the point across that it’s facing the danger of disappearance, the president and his cabinet held a press conference underwater--and that was in 2009! 6. The Hague The Hague is a city in the western Netherlands. It’s Inner Court complex serves as the seat of the Dutch Parliament. Last year, the government ordered an increase in carb emissions cuts to fight against global warming. The Hague will be one of the most affected of the cities in Europe should the looming disasters of global warming ensue. The sea levels here would rise 8.2 or 9.8 feet or 2.5 to 3 meters by 2100. 5. Sacramento Wouldn’t coastal cities in Northern California like San Francisco and Oakland be more at risk in regards to the increase of water compared to Sacrament? The answer is “yes,” but the effects of the rising ocean would be so harmful that it would hurt an inland city like Sacrament, too. Should the flow of the Sacramento river rise by just 2 feet or 0.6 meters, that could spell trouble for many neighborhoods. 4. Venice There’s not quite a place like Venice anywhere else in the world. The city was built on the water as opposed to next to it. Streets need bridges to cross to the other side. Gondolas float by next to people taking a stroll on the pavement. This canal city is flooding at record-breaking levels and has been sinking for a long time now. This past fall, over 70% of the town was overpowered by water as a storm laid down heavy rain and pushed seawater closer. The highest category of floods ever recorded beforehand was between 2000 and 2013. It’s estimated that Venice will sink in the next century. 3. Rio de Janeiro Say goodbye to Copacabana! If the temperature continues to rise in Brazil, the tourist-favorite beach will be no more. Compared to everywhere else in South America, experts predict Rio de Janeiro will be the worse affected. The more heat waves and floods, the more likely diseases will occur, and more easily they will spread. The average temperate will rise just 1 degrees Celsius in 2020, and that’s more than enough to cause significant concern for one of the most densely populated cities in the world. 2. Los Angeles Another coastal California city in danger of being submerged in water is also one of the biggest cities in the world. The sea level has risen 7 inches or 17.8 centimeters in the 20th century and even more since then. Between 1981 and 2000, the average temperature rose by 4.3 degrees Fahrenheit. The Pacific Ocean may soon engulf the sandy coastlines we’re so familiar with, including places like Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and Long Beach. Whether you’ve visited LA yourself or you’ve seen the skyline in photos, you’ve most likely noticed that curtain of smog that occasionally covers everything. Because of the dense population and amount of vehicles, pollution has become a big problem for LA. A place that was recently recovering from a terrible drought may also face extreme flooding. 1...

FUERTEVENTURA CORRALEJO, CANARY ISLANDS, CORRALEJO BEACH, BEACH IN FUERTEVENTURA, Fuerteventura, the second largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, sits in the Atlantic Ocean 100km off the north coast of Africa. It’s known primarily as a holiday destination due to its white-sand beaches and year-round warmth cooled by constant winds. The multitude of beaches that wrap around it are interrupted by cliffs and sheltered coves. It's popular for water sports, especially surfing, windsurfing and waterskiing. There is a theory, although for many a legend, which says that the Canary Islands, among which of course is Fuerteventura were part of the lost civilization of Atlantis. Fuerteventura was chosen among 500 European destinations by the Quality Coast International Certification Program of the European Coastal and Marine Union as one of the most attractive tourist destinations for visitors interested in cultural heritage, environment and sustainability. The climate on Fuerteventura is pleasant throughout the year. The island is hence referred to as the island of eternal spring. The sea regulates air temperature, diverting hot Sahara winds away from the island. The island's name in English translates as "strong fortune" or "strong wind", the Spanish word for wind being viento. During the winter months, temperatures average a high of 22 °C (72 °F) and a low of around 15 °C (59 °F), whereas during the summer a mean high of 28 °C (82 °F) and a low of 20 °C (68 °F) can be expected. Precipitation is about 147 mm (6 in) per year, most of which falls in autumn and winter. December is the month with highest rainfall. A sandstorm known as the Calima (similar to the Sirocco wind, which blows to the North of the Sahara, to Europe) may blow from the Sahara Desert to the Northwest, and can cause high temperatures, low visibility and drying air. Temperatures during this phenomenon rise temporarily by approximately 10 degrees Celsius. The wind brings in fine red dust, The fine white sand is not blown in from Sahara, It is made up of dead coral reef and local seabed upheaval. visibility can drop to between 100 to 200 m (328.08 to 656.17 ft) or even lower and can even bring African locusts to the island. The cuisine is fairly basic due to the customs and climate conditions. They share this simplicity with the other Canary islands, and similarly to them, they use a large quantity of fish. They also use whatever they can grow in the near-barren land. This includes papas arrugadas, a dish of wrinkled potatoes usually served with mojo, which is a hot pepper sauce or with puchero canario, a meat stew. Seafood is prepared in many ways traditionally, such as pejines (salted fish), jareas, or sancocho (a type of stew) made from fish, generally the grouper, corvina or sama, boiled after salting, and served with mojo, potatoes, or gofio (a type of grain). People are also very keen on the mussels and limpets collected on the island's coasts. They also use meat such as beef and pork to make different dishes or simply to for braising, but their main meat is goat, both from the kids and from the older animals. They eat the goat roasted or stewed. Goats are not only useful for their meat - the Fuerteventurans also use the milk to make the cheese majorero, which has won many prizes. The majorero is mostly made of goats milk, and occasionally it is up to 15% ewes milk. It is cured in pimento oil or gofio meal. Majorero and palmero cheese are the only two Canarian cheeses with protected denomination of origin. Corralejo is a town on the northeast coast of Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands of Spain. It's known for Corralejo Natural Park, featuring windy, dune-backed beaches like Playa del Moro. The park is home to endangered wildlife and Montaña Roja, a volcano with panoramic views. The town, a former fishing village, is dotted with eateries and bars. Nearby Lobos Island is a nature preserve with rare birds. Thanks to the large expat population, the town has a diverse population that varies from the local Spaniard, to the Irish, British, German and Finnish people who have settled in the resort. The area has 7 miles (11 km) of fine sand starting 2 miles (3.2 km) outside of Corralejo, alongside some smaller bays across the coast. In addition, there are several miles of sand dunes located nearby, which have been designated as a nature reserve. The waters around Corralejo are clear and an intense shade of blue, but are affected by strong currents. The town's beaches are somewhat more sheltered and have a band of volcanic rock along the shoreline. Corralejo is serviced by a bus service (both public and chartered) and by a local taxi service operated by the region of La Oliva. The public bus service (Tiadhe) operates a bus service from the island's capital Puerto del Rosario (number 6), and from Puerto del Rosario to Caleta de Fuste and the Fuerteventura Airport (number 3)

Undersea Rivers It’s easy to look at the ocean and see it as a large mass of water, without many of the features that we see on dry land. But the ocean is full of surprises!! Researchers discovered in the 1980s that things weren’t quite as simple as that, when technology allowed them to map the ocean’s floor for the first time. 9. Crop Circles Crop circles can be creepy. Whether you believe crop circles in farmers’ fields are a result of alien activity or just some artistic people, similar crop circles were found under the water. Researchers were scratching their heads as to how they were being formed. They were first discovered in 1995 off the coast of Japan, and soon a large number of them had been found in the surrounding waters. 8. Hydrothermal Vents In 1977, a team of researchers set off to investigate a temperature anomaly that had been discovered to the northeast of the Galapagos Islands, and what they found changed our understanding of the underwater environment. 7. Red Tide A red tide can occur in virtually every coastal region in the world. In fact, it has been reported in every US state with a shoreline, and incidences are thought to be on the rise. 6. The Julia Sound There’s a lot we don’t understand about the underwater world, especially certain noises that can be difficult to explain. One such noise is known as the ‘Julia’ sound, and was recorded on March 1st 1999. This low whining was so loud that it could be heard across the entire equatorial Pacific ocean autonomous hydrophone array. 5. Black Holes When you think of a black hole, you probably think of outer space, but now, scientists have discovered that black holes are closer than you think. Black holes can suck up matter from anything around them and nothing can escape, not even sound or light. 4. Fairy Circles When tourists and researchers started noticing strange bald patches in the seagrass meadows of the Mediterranean and Baltic seas, they were stumped as to what might be causing them. They were perfect rings with no vegetation. Affectionately known as ‘fairy circles’, they are clearly observable from overhead images of the deep blue ocean and, in some cases, from shore. 3. Internal Waves We’ve all seen images of giant waves on the ocean’s surface, but did you know that the largest waves of all are hidden out of view, deep below what we can see? Known as internal waves, the biggest are found in the Luzon Strait of the South China sea, and can reach up to 550 feet (167 m) tall. Located between Taiwan and the Philippines, these internal waves sound pretty strange! 2. Bioluminescence One of the most beautiful things you’ll ever see in the sea is bioluminescence. It can be caused by a wide variety of creatures such as bacteria, plankton, worms, snails, fish, jellyfish, and even sharks! 1. The Icy Finger of Death The Icy Finger of Death is undoubtedly the strangest thing that happens in the ocean, and potentially one of the most deadly. It’s a phenomenon that’s only recently been discovered happening beneath icebergs, and has fatal consequences for any slow-moving animal caught in its path.

The video shows sea-surface temperature (SST) anomalies for January 1 2017 to December 31 2017. Anomalies are relative to a 1985-2007 baseline. Blue means colder-than-average SST, red is warmer than average. Sea ice concentration is shown as white to grey shading. Highlights: 2017 saw a shift from neutral El Nino Southern Oscillation conditions to La Nina by the year's end, but it was no smooth transition. Around March, SSTs in the far-eastern tropical Pacific along the coast of South America rose rapidly - a coastal Nino event - but the elevated temperatures soon died away. In late November and through December, SSTs in the Tasman Sea were unusually high, reaching more than 5 degrees above normal in places. Such high anomalies are very unusual in this area and may be connected to the developing La Nina. Early in the year, sea ice coverage in both the Arctic and Antarctic was unusually low (https://youtu.be/T_DppwwNSXI) with record low extents (low annual maximum and low annual minimum respectively) set within a few days of each other. In late summer and early Autumn, sea-surface temperatures in the tropical Atlantic were above average. Hurricanes passing over the warmer-than-usual waters, churned up the seas beneath them, bringing colder water to the surface and leaving a cool wake behind them. In the middle of the North Pacific, an erratically shaped area of cooler-than-average waters can be seen wobbling around for much of the year. This pattern of a cool area, ringed by warmer waters to the north, south and east is characteristic of the positive phase of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, which affects the climate of the Pacific region and may influence the rate at which El Nino and La Nina events happen.

If global temperatures rise by just four degrees celsius, the forecast is cloudy with a chance of obliteration. Khanna’s latest book is Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization (http://goo.gl/fUVuXR). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/parag-khanna-on-climate-change-and-connectivity Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - If global temperatures rise four degrees Celsius above the 1990 baseline temperature level used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC, and that may happen by 2040, 2050 or around that time based on present temperature sort of rise trajectory. That would have a very devastating impact on global food production. Right now the countries of the world that are the largest food producers such as the United States, Brazil, China, India, Australia – if the temperature rise by four degrees Celsius several decades from now it could be that the food production is generally wiped out in many of those geographies because of desertification, crop failure and so forth. Already there’s a lack of sufficient water irrigation and fresh water supply for agriculture in Australia. We see water tables falling in the western United States and so forth. Meanwhile if temperatures do rise to that degree and in fact temperatures rise the fastest in the northern latitudes of the world and the southern latitudes in other words at the poles. Whereas sea levels rise fastest at the equator. And so what we’ll find is that in a world that’s four degrees Celsius warmer a large amount of the world’s food production is predicted to take place in today’s Canada and Russia. Now Canada and Russia are the two largest countries in the world by geographic territory. But they are also perhaps ironically two of the world’s most depopulated countries. Their populations are very small and very concentrated in very, very small areas. Most of the Canadian population for example lives very close to the United States border. And most of Russia’s population lives west of the Euro mountains very close to Eastern Europe. Whereas about six-sevenths of Russia’s territory, this vast geography known, a large chunk of it is known as Siberia for example is largely uninhabited. But if you project forward where food will be grown in a world that is that much warmer in fact these depopulated areas of Canada and Russia may be the world’s breadbaskets. The problem is there’s no people. And so of course we would have to think about who are the people who are going to live there? Might we need to have population transfers and mass migrations for people to work in the agricultural sector or to develop the agribusiness industries of these countries to feed the planet. Because after all it will not be the United States and Canada, the United States and China and India and Australia and Brazil that are feeding the world. It’ll be Canada and Russia that are feeding the world. So the food supply chain on a global basis is going to shift and move and become much more dependent on these northern geographies. And so this is the prediction that a number of scientists have made and that’s of course going to require a significant rethinking of the meaning of political geography when we depend so much on just two countries for our food.

Sea creatures you never knew existed. These animals lived in the deepest parts of the ocean & you should be glad that these fish are extinct. Support our Patreon today: https://www.patreon.com/theywillkillyou Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] 12 The Dumbo octopus The Dumbo octopus is a species of octopi that resembles the title character of the Disney film. It has prominent ear-like fins making it look like a baby elephant’s head. The Dumbo octopus lives at depths of over 13,000 feet below sea level. They grow to almost 6ft in length and weigh up to 13 pounds. 11 Ocean Sunfish The ocean sunfish is the heaviest bony fish in the world, weighing between 545 and 2,205 pounds. Living on a diet of sea jellies and small fish, which it has to consume in very large quantities because of their poor nutritional value. 10 Humpback Anglerfish The humpback anglerfish, also known as the humpback black devil, lives at depths ranging from 800 to 13,000 feet below the ocean’s surface. They have black soft bodies and large heads, widened mouths and long pointed teeth. Females are capable of eating prey even larger than themselves. 9 Amphipoda Amphipoda is an order of crustaceans that range in size from 0.03 inches to 13.4 inches. Their bodies are laterally compressed and have no carapace. The most interesting thing about amphipods is their feeding behavior. There are more than 9.900 species, and some are flesh-eating scavengers. Amphipods have two front pairs of legs with large claws. 8 Sarcastic Fringehead The sarcastic fringehead is a small fish with a large Predator-like mouth and aggressive territorial behavior. It can only grow up to 12 inches long and lives in the Pacific, off the coast of North America, from San Francisco, California to central Baja California. 7 Pelican eel The Pelican eel, also known as the gulper eel, has a very large mouth which it can open wide enough to swallow bigger fish. Gulper eels live at extreme depths from 1,600 to almost 10,000 ft. 6 Pacific Viperfish The Pacific viperfish lives in the abyssal depths of the deep sea and is easily recognized by its large open mouth. It’s a predatory fish that can reach lengths of 1 foot and it has an iridescent dark silver body. Pacific viperfish cannot close their mouths due to their very large fang-like teeth which they use to trap their prey with. They also have a light or gone located at the end of their dorsal fin rays. 5 Abyssal ghostsharks Pointy-nosed blue chimaeras or more commonly known as abyssal ghostsharks are sea creatures that live in temperate ocean floors down to 6,500 feet deep. They are believed to be some of the oldest fish in existence, as they branched off from sharks nearly 400 million years ago. 4 Stargazer Fish Stargazers are a family of fish that camouflage themselves in the sand on the ocean floor and attack when a fish swims by. Their eyes are mounted on the top of their heads and they have upward facing mouths. Stargazers have two large venomous spines located above their pectoral fins and some species can also cause electric shock. Their way of attacking other fish combined with their ability to cause electric shock and the fact that they also have venomous spines, have caused some to refer to stargazers as “the meanest things in creation”. 3 Immortal Jellyfish The immortal jellyfish is a species of biologically undying jellyfish. It’s found in the Mediterranean Sea and the waters of Japan and has no maximum lifespan. It begins life as a larva and settles down to the sea floor, where it gives rise to a colony of polyps. Each polyp and jellyfish arising from a single larva is a genetically identical clone. The polyps morph into an extensively branched form. Jellyfish then bud off the polyps and continue their life in a free-swimming form. 2 Water Bears Water bears are micro-animals that resemble bears and are believed to be the toughest and most resilient animals on the planet. They can survive incredibly harsh conditions such as exposure to extreme temperatures or pressures, radiation, air deprivation, dehydration and even starvation. They can go without food or water for more than 30 years. Their barrel-shaped bodies usually only grow up to 0.02 inches long and have four pairs of legs, each with four to eight claws. 1 Sea Spiders The sea spider is not really an arachnid, but a marine arthropod. It got the name from its eerie resemblance to a spider. It has eight long legs and a small body. Most species of sea spiders are so small that each of their muscles consists of only one cell. They’re most common in shallow waters where they’re usually found walking along the bottom.

Even though 2018 is now under way, the cold isn’t gone—and an explosively intensifying storm along the Gulf Stream will double down on the misery for millions along and near the East Coast. On Tuesday morning, sleet pellets and snowflakes were peppering coastal areas near Houston (which had its warmest year on record in 2017). The unusual spritz was triggered by a surge of jet-stream energy diving into the cold upper trough that’s kept the eastern two-thirds of the nation in the deep freeze for more than a week. As this upper-level impulse pulls across the Gulf of Mexico, light freezing rain could fall late Tuesday night into early Wednesday as far south as southeast Georgia and the elbow of the Florida Panhandle, where a rare winter storm warning was in effect. Amounts should be light enough to avoid widespread power loss and tree damage, but roadways could be quite hazardous. The ice may be capped with an inch or two of snow as far south as Georgia. WU weather historian Chris Burt looks back at some of the Southeast's most spectacular winter weather events—including the colossal FL/GA/SC snow of 1800 and the New Orleans blizzard of 1899—in this archival post from 2011. How big a nor'easter? From the mid-Atlantic to New England, the big threat will be snow, strong winds, and brutal cold. As cold air and upper-level energy overspread the warm sea-surface waters of the Gulf Stream, the developing surface low should more than qualify for “bombogenesis” (a deepening of at least 24 millibars in 24 hours). There is very high confidence on the general track and intensity of this storm as it heads from off the mid-Atlantic Coast toward Nova Scotia, which will get a direct hit of heavy snow and high wind. As usual for East Coast winter storms, though, the devil lies in the details, including exactly how far northwest the storm tracks and the width of its swath of heavy precipitation. As of the 12Z model runs on Tuesday morning, there was still enough uncertainty to keep a chance of significant snow along the Interstate 95 corridor from Washington to New York. The highest-confidence areas for snow include far eastern North Carolina and southeast Virginia, the Delmarva Peninsula, eastern New Jersey, and southeast New England. Amounts should be under 6” in many places, but more than a foot could fall across eastern Long Island, Rhode Island, and the swath from eastern Massachusetts to coastal Maine. There’s a bigger-than-usual asterisk on these projected amounts, depending on the track and evolution of the storm. If anything, models have been inching closer to the coast with the low placement. This would push the zone of significant snow further inland and hike the amounts along the immediate coast, with blizzard conditions not out of the question for parts of coastal New England. Watch for more details and updates on this storm, dubbed Grayson by The Weather Channel, at weather.com. The coup de grâce on the back side of this nor’easter will be a fierce blast of high wind and bitter cold pushing from the Midwest into the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. High temperatures on Friday and Saturday could struggle to reach 10°F as far south as northern Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and much of New England is likely to remain below zero all day. A quick thaw on the way—but not much of one A welcome push of somewhat milder air will bring 60s into Texas over the weekend, and perhaps provide a day of readings above 32°F from Illinois and Michigan to New England early next week. The relief won’t last long, though, as yet another Arctic outbreak is on tap to sweep across most of the central and eastern U.S. later next week. Residents may find themselves gazing longingly toward the U.S. Southwest, where temperatures are predicted to remain milder than average throughout the next week and beyond. A 21st-century cold wave for the ages The eastern two-thirds of the United States hasn’t seen a December-January cold outbreak quite like

Rising sea levels are quickening the pace of beach erosion around the world, endangering coastal cities and shoreline habitats. Building oyster reefs can help restore beaches and create new habitats, even as oceans rise. In New York City's borough of Staten Island, the Living Breakwaters project was designed to reduce wave heights and energy and help control shoreline erosion. #climatechange #resilience #NewYorkCity Visit the Museum's Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth to explore how climate works and the consequences of climate change.

NIWA marine ecologist Dr Vonda Cummings discusses the likely effects of climate change on marine invertebrates living on the seafloor of the Ross Sea coast. These organisms have evolved in a very stable environment and are adapted to an extremely narrow range of sea conditions. Relatively large increases in sea temperatures and acidity predicted by the end of this century may outstrip their ability to adapt. Laboratory experiments with common Antarctic shellfish suggest that predicted increases in ocean acidity may threaten shellfish populations.

The largest ecosystem on earth is changing. As the water temperature rises and the chemistry of seawater is altered, life in the ocean faces profound challenges. The AWI short film „The ocean – A changing ecosystem“ shows, which changes scientists are already observing today, but also which effects they expect in future. Join marine biologist Felix Mark on an expedition to the Arctic, follow biogeochemist on a journey into the past and share IPCC coordinating lead author Hans-Otto Pörtner’s knowledge on how the ocean is doing.
Oregon is ground zero for ocean acidification impacts--the water chemistry off our coast is already changing and has changed dramatically. For a glimpse into the science, the impacts and the information gaps behind ocean acidification in Oregon, check out the video below. Oregon researchers, industry members and policy leaders have teamed up to better comprehend these chemical changes to our marine waters. While there are still many unknowns about specific impacts, large scale changes are likely to occur. And ultimately, these changes have the potential to impact everyone that lives here.

Developing Coastal Storm 3/20/19.... watch https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUwUkxfVysZE3KD7e6rlj7iwVahke_YdB A developing coastal storm is likely bring unsettled weather to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast by Thursday... Despite dry weather, major to historic and catastrophic flooding will continue across parts of the Missouri and Mississippi River Basins due to rapid snowmelt as a result of heavy rainfall last week. Flood warnings and advisories remain in effect for parts of the region. Areal flooding is also a concern across parts of the Northwest and Northern Rockies/High Plains as warm temperatures this week are leading to accelerated snowmelt and the potential for ice jams. A cold front moving into California this morning and through the Southwest states by Thursday will bring increased chances for rain and mountain snows to California, the Central Great Basin, and into the Southwest/Four Corners region. Meanwhile, a couple of weak fronts moving through the Midwest will allow for mainly light rain from the Mid-Mississippi Valley to the Ohio Valley, with some light snows also possible across the Upper Great Lakes. The main sensible weather threat in the short range however will be with a developing coastal low pressure system off the Carolina coasts on Wednesday, tracking up the East coast the end of this week. Moderate to locally heavy rainfall is likely across the Mid-Atlantic states on Thursday shifting northward into the Northwest by Friday, with the potential for accumulating snowfall across portions of the interior Northeast as well.

This stylish, lavishly photographed HD documentary follows the team on the ground in Kuwait as they race to beat critical deadlines while the temperature rises to the extremes of mid-summer. There are bridges to finish, water gates to be built and installed, millions of cubic metres of dynamic compaction to be done – literally smashing the ground flat enough to bear the weight of buildings on it – and mangrove plants to nurture at the absolute northern limit of their possible cultivation. All this before new lagoons can be flooded in late 2009, and while the first families are already moving into their new homes alongside the first flooded lagoons. First Broadcast in 2005.

ALBANIA Go Your Own Way - Visit Albania TopAlbania Subscribe Now! http://bit.ly/TopAlbania Music ♫ Kuarteti Pentagram https://youtube.com/kuartetipentagram Top 21 Beaches in Albania ► https://goo.gl/KF2nLT Albanian Alps ► https://goo.gl/Uoz2rd Top Albania https://facebook.com/topalbania1 The Albanian Riviera is blessed with 300 days of sun. The average temperature in January is 10 degrees C. and the average temperature in July is 25 degrees C. The Ionian coastline is known for having fascinating beaches with deep and very clean waters. Younger crowds tend to visit the Ionian beaches as the area offers many opportunities for those interested in water sports like diving, boat tours, etc. Some of the most exotic and interesting beaches in the south of Albania are Dhërmi, Jal, Himara, Qeparo, Borsh, Saranda and Ksamil. From the Llogara Pass, which is 1,057 meters above sea level, the breathtaking coast can be seen as if from the vantage point of an airplane. The first beach here is Dhraleos in Palasë which has a length of 1.5 km. This is one of the most exotic and tranquil beaches of the Albanian coastal zone complete with rich blue waters. This beach is popular for water sports and is sometimes even the destination for the parachutes that launch from Llogara Pass. Dhërmi is located a little further south and is one of the most frequented and important tourist places along the Albanian coast. The crystal-clear waters, isolated beaches, water sports and diving make this the preferred beach of younger generation. The different beaches that are part of Dhërmi are Jaliksari, Shkambo and Gjipea.The beach of Gjipea has a beautiful shape. Past this beach there is a stream that has made a canyon with 70 meters high walls. Located near the beach of Dhërmi is the Cave of Pirates which tourists can access only by boat or ferry. There are also hotels, restaurants and summer clubs located nearby. Throughout this entire area, family tourism has developed, where tourists can choose to rent guesthouses or reside in a variety of hotels nearby. Near Himara 8 km south of Dhërmi, you will find the village of Vuno, which is the central area of the Albanian Riviera. It is a tourist town that comes to life during the summer season thanks to the younger generations that come here. In this area are beaches of Spile, Potam, Llamaniand and Livadhja. All of them stand out for their deep waters, navigability and rocky characteristics. After Borsh is Qeparo and the small tectonic gulf of Porto Palermo where Ali Pasha castle is located. Borsh, is one of the longer beach areas of the Albanian Riviera protected by a collection of massive Mediterranean vegetation, primarily citrus and olive plantations. Family tourism has also become very popular in this area. Between here and the city of Saranda, one can find the beaches of Bunec, Kakome and Krokëy whose collective length runs about three km and each with beautiful, crystal-clear water. The city of Saranda is the most populous urban area on the Albanian Riviera and a very big tourist destination, especially enjoyed by newly married couples on their honeymoon. The city and surrounding areas offer a range of hotels catering to five-star travelers as well as the more budget conscious, while home rentals also remain an option. The city is well-located on the coast only 9 km away from the Greek island of Corfu. Daily ferries offer connections between Saranda and Corfu making this southern Albanian city a good base for European and international tourists. Along Saranda you will find some smaller beaches like Central and Liman. Usually, tourists prefer to visit one of the more frequented places, Ksamil, which is located between the peninsula of Ksamil and lagoon of Butrint hosting a number of hotels and restaurants, near the beach of Ksamil are 4 small islands covered by Mediterranean vegetation with a surface of 8.9 ha. http://www.albania.al #TopAlbania #VisitAlbania
