- Jun 4, 2014A new study in Australia shows that dryland ecosystems play a more important role in the global carbon cycle than previously thought.
- May 17, 2014Changes in light intensity may impact density of tree rings, researcher finds
- May 16, 2014Scientists have estimated that up to half of the recent warming in Greenland and surrounding areas may be due to climate variations that originate in the tropical Pacific, and are not connected with the overall warming of the planet.
- May 16, 2014The melting of a rather small ice volume on East Antarctica's shore could trigger a persistent ice discharge into the ocean, resulting in unstoppable sea-level rise for thousands of years to come.
- May 7, 2014A research team has found the first evidence that acidity of continental shelf waters off the West Coast is dissolving the shells of tiny free-swimming marine snails, called pteropods, which provide food for pink salmon, mackerel and herring.
- Apr 29, 2014A team of researchers have developed a new way to determine sea-level changes and deep-sea temperature variability over the past 5.3 million years. The findings could help determine the relationship between carbon dioxide levels, global temperatures and sea levels.
- Apr 21, 2014New data shows that the presence of bright night-shining clouds has increased in a region that covers the northern third of the United Sates and the lowest parts of Canada. That information ties in with understanding the weather and climate of all Earth.
- Apr 19, 2014As the Antarctic ice sheet grew to its present-day size around 14 million years ago, other regions on Earth became warmer. Researchers have now discovered why.
