  • Researchers Discover New Species of Razor Clams in South China Sea
    Species are the fundamental units of taxonomy. The formation of new species is the basis for the emergence and development of a new gene pool, which directly contributes to an increase in biodiversity.
      Razor clams are highly prized for their delicious taste and nutritional benefits. Species of razor clams, such as Solen grandis and Cultellus attenuatus, are particularly important in the edible shellfish market and are major contributors to the ec...

  • Airborne Interferometric Radar Altimeter Shows Potential for Submesoscale SSHA Measurements
    To date, humanity has not been able to observe two-dimensional (2D) oceanic processes at the 0.1-10 km submesoscale in the spatial domain through remote sensing. The sea surface height anomaly (SSHA) signal at this scale is small and exceeds the resolut...

  • Altered Oceanic Crust May Contribute to Arc Magmas
    As an important subduction component, altered oceanic crust (AOC) is widely distributed on the oceanic subducting slab and potentially has significant contributions to the chemistry of arc magmas.

  • Novel Method to Calculate Ocean Heat Content in Indo-Pacific Convergence Zone
    The oceans primarily absorb the imbalance in Earth's energy caused by human-induced greenhouse gases. However, current ocean heat content (OHC) measurements don't fully close the global energy budget.

  • Researchers Develop Hybrid Superamphiphobic Anti-corrosion and Anti-icing Coating
    The corrosion and failure of metallic materials have always been a challenging issue that researchers and engineers urgently want to solve. Inspired by the lotus effect, biomimetic superhydrophobic materials with typical non-wetting characteristics at t...
