Solving the Mesopotamia Timeline Puzzle With Tree-Rings and Radiocarbon Research

July 19, 2016 — Tree-ring dating and radiocarbon research has established an absolute timeline for the archaeological, historical and environmental record in Mesopotamia from the early second millennium ... read more

July 11, 2016 — Scientists have found that changes in cloud patterns during the last three decades match those predicted by climate model simulations. These cloud changes are likely to have had a warming effect on ... read more

July 11, 2016 — Scientists have long suggested that global warming could lead to a slowdown -- or even shutdown -- of the vast system of ocean currents, including the Gulf Stream, that keeps Europe warm. However, a ... read more

July 5, 2016 — A new reconstruction of Antarctic ocean temperatures around the time the dinosaurs disappeared 66 million years ago supports the idea that one of the planet's biggest mass extinctions was due to ... read more

July 4, 2016 — The recent trend of increasing Antarctic sea ice extent -- seemingly at odds with climate model projections -- can largely be explained by a natural climate fluctuation, according to a new ... read more

June 30, 2016 — There was a period during the last ice age when temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere went on a rollercoaster ride, plummeting and then rising again every 1,500 years or so. Those abrupt climate ... read more

Understanding Ice Loss in Earth’s Coldest Regions

June 30, 2016 — Scientists found that melt on the surface of glaciers in the McMurdo Dry Valley is rare, but internal melting is ... read more

June 29, 2016 — Antarctic sea ice production spanning more than 20 years has been understood through the analysis of satellite observations using specially developed techniques. The results of this analysis revealed ... read more

June 29, 2016 — Approximately 30 percent of current Adélie penguin colonies may be in decline by 2060, researchers predict, and approximately 60 percent may be in decline by 2099. The declines are associated with ... read more

June 28, 2016 — Species across the world are rapidly going extinct due to human activities, but humans are also causing rapid evolution and the emergence of new species. A new study summarizes the causes of ... read more

Vegetation in Russian Arctic Has Memory

June 27, 2016 — Adaptation to climate change has a lag of several thousands of years, report researchers. The permafrost regions in the Arctic are among those areas of the world in which the temperature is rising ... read more

Wind-Blown Antarctic Sea Ice Helps Drive Ocean Circulation

June 27, 2016 — Antarctic sea ice is constantly on the move as powerful winds blow it away from the coast and out toward the open ocean. A new study shows how that ice migration may be more important for the global ... read more

June 27, 2016 — The way the ocean transported heat, nutrients and carbon dioxide at the peak of the last ice age, about 20,000 years ago, is significantly different than what has previously been suggested, according ... read more

June 27, 2016 — Planetary scientists have discovered pieces of opal in a meteorite found in Antarctica, a result that demonstrates that meteorites delivered water ice to asteroids early in the history of the solar ... read more

June 24, 2016 — Earth's ancient magnetic field was significantly different than the present day field, originating from several poles rather than the familiar two, new research suggests. Then, shortly after our ... read more

June 24, 2016 — Researchers have long struggled to explain why some violent crime rates are higher near the equator than other parts of the world. Now, a team of researchers has developed a model that could help ... read more

June 24, 2016 — The Siberian permafrost regions include those areas of the Earth, which heat up very quickly in the course of climate change. Nevertheless, biologists are currently observing only a minimal response ... read more

June 23, 2016 — Finding out which is the highest mountain in the US Arctic may be the last thing on your mind, unless you are an explorer who skis from the tallest peaks around the globe. A ski mountaineer and a ... read more

June 23, 2016 — While some criticize the Paris climate target as impracticable, a team of scholars argues that it is a triumph of realism. First, keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius is necessary in ... read more
