Whale-inspired ocean turbine blades
Interest in developing alternative energy sources is driving the consideration of a promising technology that uses underwater turbines to convert ocean tidal flow energy into electricity.  View News Article (2010-11-29)

Island channel could power about half of Scotland, studies show
Renewable tidal energy sufficient to power about half of Scotland could be harnessed from a single stretch of water off the north coast of the country, engineers say.  View News Article (2014-01-20)

'Ecosystem services' help assess ocean energy development
With many projects under development in coastal regions such as New England, tidal power -- which extracts "hydrokinetic" energy from marine environments -- seems poised to join other U.S. commercial power sources. View News Article (2015-02-27)

The tides they are a changin'
Scientists from the University of Southampton have found that ocean tides have changed significantly over the last century at many coastal locations around the world.  View News Article (2015-03-06)

Calculating tidal energy turbines' effects on sediments and fish
The emerging tidal-energy industry is spawning another in its shadow: tidal-energy monitoring. Little is known about tidal turbines' environmental effects and environmentalists, regulators and turbine manufacturers all need more data to allow the industry to grow.  View News Article (2010-12-14)

Underwater wings for tidal power
A NOVEL machine that generates electricity from marine tides will be put to the test off the Scottish coast next year. Called the Snail, it uses the flow of water over wings to anchor it to the seabed. This will allow it to operate at a greater range of sites than rival models, its designers say. Tidal flows have the potential to supply large quantities of renewable energy. But the few... View News Article (2003-09-24)

Species unique to tidal marshes face threats
Tidal marshes cover only about 45,000 square kilometers worldwide-about the area of Denmark. In comparison with other habitats, tidal marshes support few nonaquatic vertebrate species, but their unique characteristics have led to the evolution of species and subspecies that are endemic (found nowhere else). View News Article (2006-08-01)

Miranda: An Icy Moon Deformed by Tidal Heating
Miranda, a small, icy moon of Uranus, is one of the most visually striking and enigmatic bodies in the solar system. Despite its relatively small size, Miranda appears to have experienced an episode of intense resurfacing that resulted in the formation of at least three remarkable and unique surface features -- polygonal-shaped regions called coronae.  View News Article (2014-09-19)

Magazine touts NJIT idea to harness clean energy for NYC
An NJIT architecture professor with an architecture student has designed a network of modular floating docks to harness clean energy for New York City. The proposal was featured this week in Metropolis magazine.  View News Article (2009-07-16)

Study determines best arrangement of tidal sails device
In the long sprint to find new sources of clean, low-cost power, slow and steady might win the race -- the slow-moving water of currents and tides, that is. Just as wind turbines tap into the energy of flowing air to generate electricity, hydrokinetic devices produce power from moving masses of water.  View News Article (2013-09-18)
