According to anthropologist Loren Davis (Oregon State University), significant findings may lie offshore, along Oregon’s “lost coast” — an ancient coastline submerged at the end of the last ice age. That coast, says Davis, is the route early humans would have to have travelled to enter the Americas.

Bacteria levels in Boston’s Charles River spur health warnings from city officials (Climate Progress)

A recent report conducted by scientists from Oregon State University and the University of North Carolina found that blooms of toxic cyanobacteria pose an increasingly pressing threat to the United States’ drinking water.

Scientists found that, while vulnerability varies from marsh to marsh, most wetlands would likely be resilient to rising sea levels over the next 50-70 years. Beyond that time, however, most wetlands might convert to intertidal mudflats as sea level rise outpaces the capacity of tidal marshes to adapt.
