Sep. 19, 2016 — A high-resolution climate model is able to accurately capture the ribbons of moist air that sometimes escape the sodden tropics and flow toward the drier mid-latitudes, allowing scientists to ... read more

Sep. 19, 2016 — Marine ecosystems are responsible for about half of global annual primary production and more than one billion people rely on fish as their primary protein source. Latest studies show that enormous ... read more

How Wave Dynamics and Water Flows Affect Coral Reefs

Sep. 19, 2016 — While climate change threatens coral reefs in oceans around the world, not all reefs are affected equally. As oceans warm, physical forces like wave strength and water flow influence which reefs ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — The Arctic's ice cover appears to have reached its minimum extent on September 10, 2016, according to scientists. Arctic sea ice extent on that day stood at 4.14 million square kilometers (1.60 ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — Clues from prehistoric droughts and arid periods in California show that today's increasing greenhouse gas levels could lock the state into drought for ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — For more than 20 million years, the ups and downs of diversity in terrestrial large mammals were determined by primary production, i.e. net production of plant biomass. This pattern changed with the ... read more

Sep. 14, 2016 — A new study finds a trend toward earlier sea ice melt in the spring and later ice growth in the fall across all 19 polar bear populations, which can negatively impact the feeding and breeding ... read more

Sep. 14, 2016 — A new study offers clues to the potential impact of ocean acidification deep-sea, shell-forming organisms. Increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is also increasing oceanic CO2. Ocean ... read more

Greenhouse Gas-Monitoring Aircraft Keep Tabs on the Amazon's Rising Methane Levels

Sep. 14, 2016 — New research into Amazon wetland emissions has been published by scientists. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, second only to carbon dioxide in its contribution to global ... read more

El Niño, Global Warming Combine to Cause Extreme Drought in Amazon Rainforest

Sep. 14, 2016 — The impact the current 2015/2016 El Niño is having in Amazonia has been revealed by new research. Areas of extreme drought and changes to their typical distribution in the region are among the most ... read more

Land-Based Food Not Nutritionally Sufficient for Wild Polar Bears, According to New Study

Sep. 13, 2016 — On average, a polar bear loses up to 30 percent of its total body mass while fasting during the open-water season. Although some scientists previously believed land-based foods could supplement the ... read more
