Severe droughts experienced recently in countries such as China, Brazil and the United States can no longer be seen as purely natural hazards, acording to a new aper. Changes to the way people use the water and the landscape...
In the first study of its kind, researchers were able to gauge how levels of ice covering the land have changed over hundreds of thousands of years
Long-term global warming requires external drivers, according to a new paper. Natural climate cycles alone are insufficient to explain warming, says researcher
Study shows North Atlantic Ocean CO2 storage doubled over last decade. Findings have important implications for ocean life
Increase in volcanic eruptions at the end of the ice age caused by melting ice caps and erosion
Many glaciers on Svalbard behave very differently from other glaciers worldwide. They advance massively for some years and then quickly retreat – and then remain quiescent for fifty to a hundred years – before they once again...
Moon’s tidal forces influence the amount of rainfall on Earth by bulging the atmosphere
Geophysicist questions stability of Antarctic Ice Sheet. The ice sheet in the Wilkes Basin may be more stable today than during the in the past because it rests on more bedrock
Southern England's winter floods in 2013/14 were directly influenced by human-driven climate change, according to a new paper. Increased water-holding capacity of the atmosphere and more January days with westerly air flow both...
Recent summer temperatures in Europe are likely the warmest of the last two millennia, say researchers
Uncertainties in tree-ring-based climate reconstructions probed. Results suggest that there is less certainty than implied by a reconstruction developed using any one set of assumptions
