Global Warming: Spring Snow a No-Go?

May 26, 2016 — Spring snowpack, relied on by ski resorts and water managers throughout the Western United States, may be more vulnerable to a warming climate in coming decades, according to a new ... read more

May 24, 2016 — A new analysis of global data related to wildfire reveals major misconceptions about wildfire and its social and economic impacts. Researchers carried out detailed analysis of global and regional ... read more

May 24, 2016 — Scientists report that they have found evidence of hardy, methane-producing microbes in water that surfaces from deep underground at The Cedars, a set of freshwater springs in Sonoma ... read more

May 24, 2016 — Scientists have conducted the world's most comprehensive analysis of coral genes, focusing on how their evolution has allowed corals to interact with and adapt to the ... read more

May 24, 2016 — Scientists have found evidence that marine life can easily invade Antarctic waters from the north, and could be poised to colonize the rapidly-warming Antarctic marine ... read more

May 23, 2016 — The history of Greenland's snowfall is chronicled in an unlikely place: the remains of aquatic plants that died long ago, collecting at the bottom of lakes in horizontal layers that document the ... read more

May 23, 2016 — New research suggests that even though amphibians are severely declining worldwide, there is no smoking gun -- and thus no simple solution -- to halting or reversing these ... read more

Extinguishing Wildfires May Not Always Be the Correct Solution

May 23, 2016 — Many landscapes need fire but population expansion into wildland areas creates a tension between different interest groups. Researchers from across the globe show that a combination of factors, ... read more

May 20, 2016 — Climate scientists have long recognized the importance of forest conservation and forest regrowth in climate mitigation and carbon sequestration -- capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. ... read more

May 19, 2016 — Water management in reservoirs could substantially mitigate future summer water shortages, expected as a consequence of ongoing glacier retreat, researchers report. The team simulated the effect of ... read more

Atmospheric Aerosols Can Significantly Cool Down Climate

May 19, 2016 — It is possible to significantly slow down and even temporarily stop the progression of global warming by increasing the atmospheric aerosol concentration, shows a new study. However, climate ... read more

May 19, 2016 — Heavier snow over Antarctica was supposed to be one of the few brakes on sea-level rise in a warming world. But that prediction is not reliable, says a new study of Antarctic snowfall over the past ... read more

Scientists Getting Warmer on Mimicking Anti-Freeze in Nature

May 19, 2016 — Researchers have taken an important step forward in mimicking nature's prowess at protecting cells from deep-freeze ... read more

May 18, 2016 — A three-decade-old open air laboratory, where warm water from a nuclear power station is pumped into an enclosed basin in the Baltic Sea off the Swedish coast, gives researchers an unparalleled ... read more

May 18, 2016 — Current rates of climate change could trigger instability in a major Antarctic glacier, ultimately leading to more than 2m of sea-level ... read more

New Data on Variability of Earth's Reflectance Over the Last 16 Years

May 18, 2016 — The Earth's albedo is a fundamental atmospheric parameter having deep implications for temperature and climate change. Experiments have been performed to monitor it over the past two decades to ... read more

May 17, 2016 — Researchers have used computer modeling to design carbon dioxide binding materials so that they retain a low viscosity after sponging up carbon dioxide, based on a surprise they found in their ... read more

May 17, 2016 — Climate change creates more shrub vegetation in barren, Arctic ecosystems. A new study shows that organisms, such as bacteria and fungi, are triggered to break down particularly nutritious dead parts ... read more

Paris Climate Agreement Cannot Be Met Without Emissions Reduction Target for Agriculture

May 17, 2016 — Scientists have calculated, for the first time, the extent to which agricultural emissions must be reduced to meet the Paris climate agreement's plan to limit warming to 2 degrees Celsius in ... read more

Poor Countries to Bear Brunt of Climate Change Despite Emitting Least Carbon Dioxide

May 16, 2016 — Many of the world's poorest countries are expected to experience daily heat extremes due to climate change sooner than wealthier nations. New research shows that the poorest fifth of the global ... read more
