The article presents updates related to research in oceanography as of May 2012. It notes that radioisotopes have been increased by nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Japan. It states that the ecological concerns for the Dead Sea over the past 200,000 have been suggested by layers of salt extracted from drilling. It mentions that fish mortality can be monitored by the Buzzards Bay Fish Mortality software.
