Apr. 21, 2015 — A study based on 1,000 years of temperature records suggests global warming is not progressing as fast as it would under the most severe emissions scenarios outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on ... read more

As US Assumes Arctic Council Chairmanship, New Report Emphasizes Cooperation Over Conflict

Apr. 20, 2015 — Although the media often portray the Arctic as a new 'Great Game' ripe for conflict, a group of international Arctic experts has released recommendations aimed at preserving the polar north ... read more

Apr. 20, 2015 — Ocean and Earth Science researchers reveal how the interplay between ocean currents and marine microbiology serve to regulate potentially damaging emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane, ... read more

Hurdles to US Climate Change Action Are in Economics and Politics, Not Divided Science

Apr. 20, 2015 — Policymakers argue over the consensus on global warming and climate change, but science is not to blame, experts say. In a new paper, scientists suggest looking at business interests, partisan ... read more

Apr. 17, 2015 — Darkening of the Greenland Ice Sheet is projected to continue as a consequence of continued climate warming, according to ... read more

How Radiative Fluxes Are Affected by Cloud and Particle Characteristics

Apr. 17, 2015 — Climate models calculate a changing mix of clouds and emissions that interact with solar energy. To narrow the broad range of possible answers from a climate model, researchers analyzed the effect of ... read more

Comparing Climate Models to Real World Shows Differences in Precipitation Intensity

Apr. 17, 2015 — Precipitation is difficult to represent in global climate models. Although most single-column models can reproduce the observed average precipitation reasonably well, there are significant ... read more

Studying How Climate Affects Biodiversity

Apr. 16, 2015 — A key question in the climate debate is how the occurrence and distribution of species is affected by climate change. But without information about natural variation in species abundance it is hard ... read more

Apr. 16, 2015 — A new study quantifies the amount of carbon stored and released through California forests and wildlands. The results indicate that wildfires and deforestation are contributing more than expected to ... read more

New Software Analyses the Effect of Climate Change on Buildings from the Cloud

Apr. 16, 2015 — Construction companies have begun to use a simulation software which analyses for the first time the entire life cycle of a building, from creation to deconstruction. The tool, which can be used in ... read more

Wind Bursts Strongly Affect El Nino Severity

Apr. 15, 2015 — A new study finds that prolonged wind bursts originating in the western Pacific can have a strong effect on whether an El Nino event will occur and how severe it is likely to be. The paper also ... read more

Apr. 15, 2015 — Armadas of icebergs were probably not the cause of abrupt episodes of cooling in the North Atlantic over the past 440,000 years, according to new ... read more

Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Limits Soil Storage

Apr. 15, 2015 — Soil carbon may not be as stable as previously thought, scientists report, adding that soil microbes exert more direct control on carbon buildup than global climate models represent. This study, ... read more

Apr. 14, 2015 — Global climate has undergone periods of stability, but also instability, with abrupt, rapid and substantial climate changes occurring as a consequence of natural processes scientists still don't ... read more

Model Captures How Nitrogen Limitation Affects Hydrological Processes

Apr. 14, 2015 — Rising carbon dioxide levels in the air act as a fertilizer for plants, altering how they use water and interact with the climate. However, an insufficient supply of nitrogen can limit the growth. ... read more

New Method Relates Greenland Ice Sheet Changes to Sea-Level Rise

Apr. 14, 2015 — Early schemes to model the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets and their impact on sea levels failed to accurately account for changes caused by snowfall and snow melt. These changes depend on ice ... read more

Extreme Geohazards: Reducing the Disaster Risk, Increasing Resilience

Apr. 14, 2015 — Extreme hazards -- rare, high-impact events -- pose a serious and underestimated threat to humanity. The extremes of the broad ensemble of natural and anthropogenic hazards can lead to global ... read more

Warming Seas Pose Habitat Risk for Fishy Favorites

Apr. 13, 2015 — Popular North Sea fish such as haddock, plaice and lemon sole could become less common on our menus because they will be constrained to preferred habitat as seas warm, according to a study. Fish ... read more
