Ocean winds keep Antarctica cold, Australia dry
New Australian National University-led research has explained why Antarctica is not warming as much as other continents, and why southern Australia is recording more droughts.
Study grapples with ocean climate stress challenge
(Phys.org) —Researchers are struggling to solve the challenge of predicting climate change impacts on marine environments.
Uncorking East Antarctica yields unstoppable sea-level rise
The melting of a rather small ice volume on East Antarctica's shore could trigger a persistent ice discharge into the ocean, resulting in unstoppable sea-level rise for thousands of years to come. This is shown in a study ...
Climate change will slow China's progress in reducing infectious diseases
China has made significant progress increasing access to tap water and sanitation services, and has sharply reduced the burden of waterborne and water-related infectious diseases over the past two decades. However, in a study ...
UK: Global warming to bring heavier summer downpours
Global warming could cause extreme summer downpours to become several times more frequent in the UK by 2100, a new study suggests.
Research sheds new light on global warming trends
New research by a team of Florida State University scientists shows the first detailed look at global land surface warming trends over the last 100 years, illustrating precisely when and where different areas of the world ...
Global warming felt to deepest reaches of ocean
In the mid-1970s, the first available satellite images of Antarctica during the polar winter revealed a huge ice-free region within the ice pack of the Weddell Sea. This ice-free region, or polynya, stayed open for three ...
Cities affect temperatures for thousands of miles
Even if you live more than 1,000 miles from the nearest large city, it could be affecting your weather. In a new study that shows the extent to which human activities are influencing the atmosphere, scientists have concluded ...
Giant Antarctic glacier beyond point of no return, research says
Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier, one of the biggest single contributors to world sea-level rise, is melting irreversibly and could add as much as a centimetre (0.4 inches) to ocean levels in 20 years, a study said Sunday.
