Hot Topic Solar System Earth Climate
Volcanoes Contribute to Recent Warming 'Hiatus'
Topic: Climate
Summary: 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
Topic: Climate
Summary: 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
Topic: Climate
Summary: 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
Topic: Climate
Summary: 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
Topic: Climate
Summary: 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
Topic: Climate
Summary: 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
Topic: Climate
Summary: An international team of scientists tracks how fast and in which direction local climates — and species — have shifted.

A Look Back and Ahead at Greenland's Changing Climate
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new study describes the mechanisms causing the melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet. The so-called "submarine melting" has increased as the ocean and atmosphere have warmed over the past two decades.

Tree Roots in the Mountains 'Act Like Thermostat for Global Climate'
Topic: Climate
Summary: For the first time, scientists have discovered how tree roots in the mountains may play an important role in controlling long-term global temperatures.

Ancient Forests Stabilized Earth's CO2 and Climate
Topic: Climate
Summary: Researchers have identified a biological mechanism that could explain how the Earth's atmospheric carbon dioxide and climate were stabilised over the past 24 million years.
