Maldives will not prevent rising sea levels

October 2, 2013. The continued accumulation of sand within the annular attolov Maldivian reefs may provide a basis for the future development of the islands, new research suggests. It is assumed that such islands like the Maldives will be one of the first to experience the effects of climate change, particularly sea level rise. The study, published in the journal Geology, describes the formation of islands in the Maldives attolov.

The researchers studied the history of education "island of the foundation," which begins when the lagoon is quite filled with sand, which is derived from the surrounding coral reefs that

Brazilian coral reefs in danger of extinction

Brazilian coral reefs to extinction Facts

Over the past 50 years, coral reefs, stretching for 3,000 km on the northeast coast of Brazil, lost 80% of their biomass. This rapid disappearance of an important component of the marine ecosystem can be considered a real natural disaster for the Atlantic Ocean.

Earlier on the reefs, located in the Atlantic at the Brazilian cities Fortaleza, Recife and Natal, home to about 18 species of corals, algae and various types of fish. Now, according to the Ministry of Environment of the country and the Federal University of Pernambuco, decreased not only

El Nino destroyed coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean 4-1,5 thousand years ago

Increased activity of the El Niño was the cause of the extinction of coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean about 4 — 1.5 thousand years ago — this scenario could be repeated in the near future due to climate change, reinforce this climatic phenomenon, say marine scientists in a paper published in the journal Science.

El Niño ("the boy" in Spanish) is characterized by an abnormal increase in the sea surface temperature in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. This process is the inverse of the La Niña ("girl"), which is associated, however, with a cold snap in

USS Philippine damaged reefs included in the UNESCO list

U.S. Navy ship, stranded in the waters of the Philippines, caused serious damage to the coral reef on the list of UNESCO World Heritage, reports on Friday by the Associated Press referring to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

In a statement the U.S. Seventh Fleet says minesweeper Guardian sat down on the reefs in the waters of the National Marine Park "Tubbataha" at 640 kilometers southwest of Manila as early as Thursday. Worse weather conditions still do not allow the sailors to remove the ship afloat.

Philippine unit WWF said the ship damaged at least ten meters reefs are

Environmentalists welcome the investment in Australia saving coral reefs

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Australia supports the decision of the authorities of the country to contribute an additional $ 8 million to save the coral reefs in the framework of sustainable development in the Asia-Pacific region, said the conservationists.

About 19% of coral reefs in the world are doomed to failure because of pollution and climate change, besides fishermen greatly reduced populations of fish that are cleaned corals, eating them with seaweed. Thus, according to UNESCO, the area of corals inhabiting the Great Barrier Reef, declined by a quarter in the 30 years that have passed after the natural

Coral larvae cease to recognize favorite algae

Ocean acidification leads to disruption of normal growth of coral reefs, according to Australian researchers.

A team of scientists from the School of Biology and Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland (Australia) examined the impact of "acidification" of the ocean to the growth of coral reefs.

In a study published in the April issue of the journal Ecology Letters, reported that the acidification of ocean water has a big effect on the ability of coral larvae (planul) "feel their environment."

Group leader Christopher Doropoulos believes that increasing acidity of ocean water causes coral larvae to settle in less

Brazil in the next 50 years could lose 80% of coral reefs

Brazil in the next 50 years could lose 80% of coral reefs along its northeastern coast from discharges of untreated sewage.

According to the study, researchers from the Federal University of Pernambuco, led Biatriche Padrovani (Beatrice Padovani), the results of which lead agency AFP, in the next half-century will be lost coral reefs, which are located over three thousand kilometers along the northeastern coast of Brazil, at a short distance from the major industrial cities of Fortaleza , Recife and Natal. According to scientists, 18 species of corals and algae may disappear under the influence of domestic, industrial and agricultural
