Models, Observations Not So Far Apart on Planet's Response to Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Apr. 17, 2017 — Recent observations suggest less long-term warming, or climate sensitivity, than the predicted by climate models. But the mismatch is resolved by factoring in that Earth is still in the early stages ... read more

Apr. 17, 2017 — Researchers have identified glaciers in West Greenland that are most susceptible to thinning in the coming decades by analyzing how they're shaped. The research could help predict how much the ... read more

Apr. 13, 2017 — Cretaceous climate warming led to a significant methane release from the seafloor, indicating potential for similar destabilization of gas hydrates under modern global warming. A field campaign on ... read more
