NASA has lots of data on this. You can't contest the satellite imagery.
 
Two very important Arctic sea ice studies mostly hiding behind headlines: Arctic Summer Sea Ice – Going Down, Down, Down
The minimum extent of sea ice on the Arctic Ocean in 2016 was reached this week and tied 2007 for the second lowest since satellite measurements began in 1979 — with 2012 still in the top spot.Credit National Snow and Ice Data Center

This is so cool -- I love even more that Sylvia Earle was the first to observe it.
 
Check out this incredible underwater phenomenon!
The first color HD video of deep-ocean bioluminescence in Hawaiian bamboo corals faithfully shows the behaviors described by Oceanographer Sylvia Earle and others decades ago — until now nev…

Waaaah! Where's mine?
 
The health and changing characteristics of coastal marine life such as kelp forests, mangroves, seagrass beds and coral reefs are significantly affected by activities that occur at sizes a thousand times smaller than a millimetre.
Marine scientists from Israel and California have developed a microscope that for the first time provides a window into the small scale behaviour of marine life.

I <3 the Guardian. The linked commentary in Science Careers is deafeningly quiet about their sexist gaffe from a few years ago.
 
Structural Barriers for Women in Science
" But the sad fact is it is much easier to say 'we need more women in science' than it is to stand up, look the (mostly male) leaders in science and politicians in the eye and say: 'Your laboratories, hiring procedures, grant-allocating processes and publishing routines are all sexist, and this results in science and technologies that aren’t good for at least half the population. Why have you allowed this to continue for so long?'"

Nice work by Dr. Lebrato -- an echinoderm and deep sea biogeochemistry scientist. Magnesium rich calcite is a tough nut to crack because it doesn't behave thermodynamically like pure calcite.
 
Many organisms incorporate magnesium (Mg) when they build their skeletons and shells. These organisms appear to be particularly vulnerable to ocean acidification because their shells and skeletons are more vulnerable to dissolution than pure calcite and aragonite.
A new study recently published in the journal Global Biogeochemical Cycles offers clues to the potential impact of ocean acidification deep-sea, shell-forming organisms.

The venomous snake can drift on ocean currents for thousands of miles—possibly clocking distances of 20,000 miles and more over ten years, computer simulations show.
The impressive yellow-bellied sea snake has spread across the globe by simply riding the waves, a new model suggests.

That's a very diplomatic answer, but... delish is delish!
