Arctic Ocean Response To Fresh Water Is Different

22.02.2016

Scenarios with freshwater leading to sluggish currents and less heat being transported to northern high latitudes have been seen as a potential cause for rapid climate changes. In two recent studies researchers have shown that...[more]


Ice Age Fresh Water Changed Pacific Circulation

12.02.2016

The catastrophic failure of a South American Ice Age dam changed the Pacific Ocean circulation and climate, according to new research[more]


Clams Date Ancient Methane Seeps In The Arctic

12.02.2016

A bed of fossilized, methane dependent clams has for the first time been observed in the high Arctic. It tells the story of a thousand year long methane release event[more]


NASA Shows How Land Water Storage Affects Sea Level

12.02.2016

New measurements from a NASA satellite have allowed researchers to identify and quantify, for the first time, how climate-driven increases of liquid water storage on land have affected the rate of sea level rise[more]


Research Questions West Antarctic Ice Sheet Stability

12.02.2016

Exceeding critical temperature limits in the Southern Ocean may cause the collapse of ice sheets and a sharp rise in sea levels, claims a new paper which models what happened in the past[more]


Study: Ice-Shelf Loss Leads To Faster Sea Level Rise

12.02.2016

Complex model shows how the “buttressing” role of ice shelves is impaired due to their decline speeding the movement of coastal glaciers into the sea [more]


Paper Looks At Long Term CO2 Climate Impact

09.02.2016

Study considers the next 10,000 years, and finds that the impact of another three centuries of carbon pollution will persist millennia after the carbon dioxide releases cease[more]


Late Antique Little Ice Age Found 1500 Years Ago

09.02.2016

Old trees reveal Late Antique Little Ice Age (LALIA) around 1,500 years ago. Potential links between this period of cool temperatures and socio-political changes[more]


NSIDC: Lowest January Arctic Sea Ice In Satellite Era

08.02.2016

Arctic sea ice extent in January was the lowest - just - recorded in the era of satellite measurements which began back in 1979[more]


RSS Data Shows Warmest January In Satellite Era

05.02.2016

Global atmospheric temperatures last month as measured by satellite instruments and analysed by RSS shows that it was the warmest January since satellite monitoring began - following on from the warmest December[more]


UAH Reports Warmest January In Satellite Record

05.02.2016

Global atmospheric temperatures last month as measured by satellite instruments and analysed by UAH shows that it was the warmest January since satellite monitoring began - following on from the warmest December[more]


Southern Ocean Carbon Dioxide Mystery Solved

04.02.2016

Why did concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gases drop to a level that allowed the Earth to slip into a period of glaciation some 20,000 years ago? Sediment samples from the seafloor suggest more carbon dioxide was dissolved...[more]
