Cracked Sea Ice Stirs Up Arctic Mercury Concern
A NASA study in the Arctic has shown that cracks in Arctic sea ice ultimate allow atmospheric mercury down to the surface where it can enter the food change.
NASA Searches for Climate Change Clues in the Gateway to the Stratosphere
NASA's uncrewed Global Hawk research aircraft is in the western Pacific region on a mission to track changes in the upper atmosphere and help researchers understand how these changes affect Earth's climate.
The Water Cycle Amplifies Abrupt Climate Change
A new study suggests that changes in the water cycle may have driven climate change at the onset of the Younger Dryas period 12680 years ago.
Public Views on Climate Engineering
A new study shows that the general public does not support the idea of deliberately manipulating Earth's environment to counteract climate change.
Safe Havens Revealed for Biodiversity in a Changed Climate
Researchers have found a way to project future habitat locations under climate change, identifying potential safe havens for threatened biodiversity.
Struggling to Adapt to Climate Change
A new study shows that human-induced climate change could pose more of a threat to plants and agriculture than previously thought.
Antarctica’s Amtospheric Light Bulb Grows Brighter
Data from NASA's AIM spacecraft show that noctilucent clouds are like a great "geophysical light bulb." They turn on every year in late spring, reaching almost full intensity over a period of no more than 5 to 10 days.
The Oldest Ice Cores
A new study claims that ice cores from certain regions of Antarctica could provide a record of Earth's climate from 1.5 million years ago.
Small Increase in Hydrogen Sulfide Made Ancient Ocean Toxic for Life
A new study has provided insight into ocean chemistry during a dramatic climate event that occurred on Earth 93.9 million years ago. The results also hold clues about how future changes in ocean chemistry could affect life on Earth.
Reading Ancient Climate from Plankton Shells
A new study has shown that a daily record of climate change on Earth is recorded in ancient sea shells.
