Hot Topic Solar System Earth Climate
Ancient Climate Questions Could Improve Predictions
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new study raises questions about climate models of the early Pliocene Earth. During this period in history, the Earth was warmer than today. As the modern earth warms, studying the Pliocene could provide clues about the future of life on Earth.

Turning Excess Carbon Dioxide Into Fuel
Topic: Climate
Summary: Scientists have found a way to transform carbon dioxide in the atmosphere into useful industrial products.

Earth is Warmer Today than Most of the Past 11,300 Years
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new study shows that the Earth is warmer today than it has been during 70 to 80 percent of the last 11,300 years. The findings could help astrobiologists understand what's in store for the future of life on our planet.

Greenland Ice Cores Reveal Our Past and Future
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new study on ice cores shows that the period between Earth's 'ice ages' may have been warmer than previously thought.

Geo-engineering Against Climate Change
Topic: Climate
Summary: New calculations indicate that seeing infertile areas of the oceans would cause enough of an increase in photosynthesizing marine life to address carbon emissions.

Storms in the Machine
Topic: Climate
Summary: NASA researchers are constructing a statistical typhoon model that can quickly generate millions of synthetic typhoons from birth through termination. Their work could provide new details about the climate of Earth, and what the future may hold for life on our planet.

Tormentas en la Máquina
Topic: Climate
Summary: Dos investigadores de la NASA y la Universidad de Columbia, Emmi Yonekura y Tim Hall, están construyendo un modelo estadístico de tifones que puede generar rápidamente millones de tifones sintéticos desde su nacimiento hasta su terminación, y cuyas propiedades estadísticas coinciden con las de cientos de tifones históricos documentados.

Extreme Weather Preceded Collapse of Maya Civilization
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new study shows that extreme weather decimated the political culture and population of the ancient Maya.

Climate Likely to be on the Hotter Side of Projections
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new NASA-funded study finds climate model projections that show a greater rise in global temperature are likely to prove more accurate than those showing a lesser rise. The study helps narrow the range of global warming expected in the coming decades and beyond.

Global Warming and The Great Dying
Topic: Climate
Summary: A new study shows that global warming was responsible for the slow recovery of plants and animals following the largest known mass extinction in Earth's history. The study could have implications in understanding how climate change could affect the future on life on our planet.
