Imagine not a white, but a green Arctic, with woody shrubs as far north as the Canadian coast of the Arctic Ocean.
Algae colonizing dead coral are upending scientists’ ability to accurately assess the health of a coral reef community, according to new work from a team of marine science experts led by Carnegie’s Manoela Romanó de Orte and Ken Caldeira. Their findings are published in Limnology and Oceanography.

Certain brightly colored coral species dotting the seafloor may appear indistinguishable to many divers and snorkelers, but Florida State University researchers have found that these genetically diverse marine invertebrates vary in their response to ocean warming, a finding that has implications for the long-term health of coral reefs.
It’s not uncommon for crescent-shaped swaths of sand to dot the shorelines of meandering rivers.
In the past few years, several medications have been found to be contaminated with NDMA, a probable carcinogen.
