Study Projects Big Thaw for Antarctic Sea Ice
Researchers say Ross Sea will reverse current trend, be largely ice free in summer by 2100.
Climate Engineering: Minor Potential, Major Side Effects
Researchers show limitations and side effects of large-scale climate intervention.
Predicting Extinctions with Climate Change
A new NASA-funded study shows that the extinction risks brought about by climate change are not only high, but also predictable.
Volcanoes Contribute to Recent Warming 'Hiatus'
Volcanic eruptions in the early part of the 21st century have cooled the planet, according to a new study. This cooling partly offset the warming produced by greenhouse gases.
Current Ice Melt Rate in Pine Island Glacier May Go On For Decades
New research shows that the Pine Island Glacier experienced rapid thinning about 8,000 years ago. The findings indicate that modern-day melting and thinning could last for several more decades or even centuries.
Extreme Weather Decides Distribution of Insects
Extreme weather caused by climate change in the coming decades is likely to have profound implications for distributions of insects and other invertebrates.
Pine Island Glacier Thinning May Go On For Decades
New research suggests that the largest single contributor to global sea level rise, a glacier of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, may continue thinning for decades to come.
A Geoengineering Warning
A new study found that a proposed method of geoengineering--injecting sulfate particles into the atmosphere to reflect sunlight--could pose a severe threat if abruptly stopped once it has been implemented.
An Ecosystem Feels the Human Touch
Researchers have compared the effects of human activities with historic periods of climate change using data collected from wetlands along the lower Hudson River. Over the past millennium, humankind has had the greatest impact on ecosystem change at the study sites.
Redistributing Earth's Species
An international team of scientists tracks how fast and in which direction local climates — and species — have shifted.
