Study finds possible link between Arctic change and extreme mid-latitude weather
Study suggests autumn Arctic sea ice can be used to predict European winter weather
Researchers find temperature feedback magnifying climate warming in Arctic
Wind and rain belts to shift north as planet warms, research says
As humans continue to heat the planet, a northward shift of Earth's wind and rain belts could make a broad swath of regions drier, including the Middle East, American West and Amazonia, while making Monsoon ...
'Cascade of events' caused sudden explosion of animal life
The explosion of animal life on Earth around 520 million years ago was the result of a combination of interlinked factors rather than a single underlying cause, according to a new study.
Russian scientists make rare find of 'blood' in mammoth
Russian scientists claimed Wednesday they have discovered blood in the carcass of a woolly mammoth, adding that the rare find could boost their chances of cloning the prehistoric animal.
Researchers find 400 year old Ice Age plants in Arctic able to grow anew as glaciers retreat
Global warming will open unexpected new shipping routes in Arctic, researchers find
Shipping lanes through the Arctic Ocean won't put the Suez and Panama canals out of business anytime soon, but global warming will make these frigid routes much more accessible than ever imagined by melting ...
NASA satellites measure increase of Sun's energy absorbed in the Arctic
NASA satellite instruments have observed a marked increase in solar radiation absorbed in the Arctic since the year 2000 - a trend that aligns with the steady decrease in Arctic sea ice during the same period.
The yin-yang of polar sea ice
It comes as no surprise, therefore, when researchers announce as they did this past September that Arctic sea ice extent is still below normal, continuing a years-long downward trend, covering less and less ...
Arctic bacteria show long evolution in toxic mercury resistance
With Mars and Europa out of reach, many scientists have turned to studying some of the Arctic and Antarctic microbes that have adapted to similarly harsh conditions on Earth.
With few data, Arctic carbon models lack consensus
(Phys.org) —As climate change grips the Arctic, how much carbon is leaving its thawing soil and adding to Earth's greenhouse effect? The question has long been debated by scientists. A new study conducted ...
New DNA study unravels the settlement history of the New World Arctic
We know people have lived in the New World Arctic for about 5,000 years. Archaeological evidence clearly shows that a variety of cultures survived the harsh climate in Alaska, Canada and Greenland for thousands ...
Sunlight, not microbes, key to CO2 in Arctic
The vast reservoir of carbon stored in Arctic permafrost is gradually being converted to carbon dioxide (CO2) after entering the freshwater system in a process thought to be controlled largely by microbial ...
