Sea otter family chillin' in Alaska's Kenai Fjords National Park. Sea otters are the smallest marine mammal and are a maximum of 100 pounds and ~5 feet in length. Sea otters have well rounded teeth adapted for crushing shells of crabs, urchins, and other invertebrates. They tend to stay in open waters gathering and "rafting" together in groups and are isolated populations in British Columbia, Washington, California, and Alaska. mammal Credit: Leah Fisher

Shelf Cloud on outflow dominant supercell near Enid, OK. A shelf cloud is a low, horizontal wedge-shaped cloud, associated with a thunderstorm gust front (or occasionally with a cold front, even in the absence of thunderstorms). A rising cloud motion often can be seen in the leading part of the shelf cloud, while the underside often appears turbulent, boiling, and wind-torn. Credit: Sean Waugh, NOAA/NSSL

Bering Sea Ice Expedition in Russian waters April 2008 Wake of the USCG Healy icebreaker cutting through sea ice along the border with Russian waters in the Bering Sea in April 2008. The expedition was one in a series of Ecosystems & Fisheries-Oceanography Coordinated Investigations carried out by NOAA's Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and Alaska Fisheries Science Center. Researchers including NOAA scientists collected data to examine ice, water properties, ocean currents, sediments, and biota (fish, seabirds, phytoplankton, zooplankton, mammals) in an ecosystem context.

When the NOAA Ship Ronald H. Brown steamed into Charleston, S.C., on March 25, the 274-foot ocean research vessel had completed a voyage of nearly 130,000 miles – a distance roughly five times the Earth’s circumference.

A new study measured CO2 emissions above Alaska by instrumented aircraft from April through November in 2012, 2013 and 2014 as part of the Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE). The long-term change in regional emissions on the North Slope was estimated by analyzing NOAA’s 41-year record of CO2 measured at NOAA’s Barrow Atmospheric Baseline Observatory.

RepostBy : "The crystal clear waters of the Weeki Wachee River in Hernando County attract thousands of paddlers every year. In the busy summer months, the river can get congested. With help from Florida Sea Grant agent Brittany Hall-Scharf, Hernando County established a new alternative salt marsh route called the Bayport-Linda Pederson Paddling Trail. With another trail option, county officials hope this new route will free up space along the Weeki Wachee, and visitors will gain appreciation for the salt marsh ecosystem. Hall-Scharf also worked with a local Girl Scout troop to create educational signs at canoe and kayak launches. The signs show visitors what type of vegetation and wildlife to expect along the trail.

Transient and Equilibrium Climate Sensitivity. Projections of the severity of climate change are strongly dependent on our estimates of sensitivity, traditionally defined as the average warming at the ’s surface due to a doubling of the carbon dioxide from pre-industrial levels. This importance arises not simply because the mean change directly causes all of the impacts of major concern, but because many other effects of climate change are predicted to increase in severity with larger warming. change For more information visit https://go.usa.gov/xNVcs.

: What's that?! It's a close up of a Spanish Dancer nudibranch egg ribbon in . Growing to over 15 inches, the Spanish Dancer is one of the largest branch in the world. It protects itself by producing a toxin that keeps would-be predators from eating it. The Spanish dancer nudibranch egg sacks, shown here, resemble a rose. For protection from predators, the egg sacks contain the same toxins as the Spanish Dancer. twin branch Credit:
