Volcanic Ash Could Help Reduce CO2 Associated With Climate Change

Scientists investigating ways of removing carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases from our atmosphere believe volcanic ash could play an important ...

Marine Biodiversity Reshuffles Under Warmer and Sea Ice-Free Pacific Arctic

Climate warming will alter marine community compositions as species are expected to shift poleward, significantly impacting the Arctic marine ...

Lessons from a Cooling Climate

Usually, talk of carbon sequestration focuses on plants: forests storing carbon in the trunks of massive trees, algae blooming and sinking to the seabed, or perhaps peatlands locking carbon away for ...

Ancient Adélie Penguin Colony Revealed by Snowmelt at Cape Irizar, Ross Sea, Antarctica

Researchers encountered a puzzle at Cape Irizar, a rocky cape located just south of the Drygalski Ice Tongue on the Scott Coast, Ross Sea. He found ...

Are China's Pollution Remediation Efforts Making the Planet Warmer?

A 10-year effort by China to improve air quality and reduce pollution-related health risks has caused warming in areas across the northern hemisphere, according to new ...

The Testimony of Trees: How Volcanic Eruptions Shaped 2000 Years of World History

Researchers have shown that over the past two thousand years, volcanoes have played a larger role in natural temperature variability than previously thought, and their climatic effects may have ...

New Way of Analyzing Soil Organic Matter Will Help Predict Climate Change

A new way of analyzing the chemical composition of soil organic matter will help scientists predict how soils store carbon -- and how soil carbon may affect climate in the ...

Marine Heatwaves Are Human-Made

Heatwaves in the world's oceans have become over 20 times more frequent due to human influence. This is what researchers are now able to demonstrate. Marine heatwaves destroy ecosystems and ...

Switching Up: Marine Bacteria Shift Between Lifestyles to Get the Best Resources

Researchers have found that marine bacteria exploit resource patches efficiently by switching between attached and planktonic lifestyles, and fine-tuning the time spent on patches depending on their ...

Major Wind-Driven Ocean Currents Are Shifting Toward the Poles

The severe droughts in the USA and Australia are the first sign that the tropics, and their warm temperatures, are apparently expanding in the wake of climate ...

Climate Pledges 'Like Tackling COVID-19 Without Social Distancing'

Current global pledges to tackle climate change are the equivalent of declaring a pandemic without a plan for social distancing, researchers ...

Island-Building in Southeast Asia Created Earth's Northern Ice Sheets

Tectonic processes are thought to have triggered past ice ages, but how? A new analysis of mountain building in the maritime tropics of Southeast Asia attributes the last ice age, which reached a ...

Amazonia Racing Toward Tipping Point, Fueled by Unregulated Fires

Amazonia is closer to a catastrophic ecological tipping point than any time in the last 100,000 years, and human activity is the ...

New Model -- Antarctic Ice Loss Expected to Affect Future Climate Change

In a new climate modeling study that looked at the impacts of accelerated ice melt from the Antarctic Ice Sheet (AIS) on future climate, a team of climate scientists reports that future ice-sheet ...

Uncovering New Understanding of Earth's Carbon Cycle

A new study is examining the Earth's carbon cycle in new depth, using diamonds as breadcrumbs of insight into some of Earth's deepest geologic ...

Stability Check on Antarctica Reveals High Risk for Long-Term Sea-Level Rise

The warmer it gets, the faster Antarctica loses ice - and much of it will then be gone forever. That's what a team of researchers has found out in their new study on how much warming the ...

Some Polar Bears in Far North Are Getting Short-Term Benefit from Thinning Ice

The small subpopulation of polar bears in Kane Basin were doing better, on average, in recent years than in the 1990s. The bears are experiencing short-term benefits from thinning and shrinking ...

Generational Shifts Help Migratory Bats Keep Pace With Global Warming

An international team of scientists demonstrated that in the common noctule bat, one of the largest European bat species, the colonization of hibernacula progresses from lower to higher latitudes ...

Compounding Impact of Severe Weather Events Fuels Marine Heatwave in the Coastal Ocean

Researchers can offer insight into why these storms intensified quickly as they moved across the continental ...

Warming Temperatures Are Driving Arctic Greening

As Arctic summers warm, Earth's northern landscapes are changing. Using satellite images to track global tundra ecosystems over decades, a new study found the region has become greener, as ...

Forest Margins May Be More Resilient to Climate Change Than Previously Thought

A warming climate and more frequent wildfires do not necessarily mean the western United States will see the forest loss that many scientists expect. Dry forest margins may be more resilient to ...

2020 Arctic Sea Ice Minimum at Second Lowest on Record

The 2020 minimum extent, which was likely reached on Sept. 15, 2020 measured 1.44 million square miles (3.74 million square ...

Climate: Support for Simple Funding Plans -- Even If Costs Are High

There is growing demand for countries to take aggressive action to combat climate change, but less consensus on how to fund it. In a new study, researchers asked more than 10,000 people from the US, ...

How to Get a Handle on Carbon Dioxide Uptake by Plants

How much carbon dioxide, a pivotal greenhouse gas behind global warming, is absorbed by plants on land? It's a deceptively complicated question, so a group of scientists recommends combining two ...
