Algorithm finds missing phytoplankton in Southern Ocean
NASA satellites may have missed more than 50% of the phytoplankton in the Southern Ocean, making it far more difficult to estimate the carbon capture potential of this vast area of sea.
Huge iceberg breaks away from the Pine Island glacier in the Antarctic
On 8 July 2013 a huge area of the ice shelf broke away from the Pine Island glacier, the longest and fastest flowing glacier in the Antarctic, and is now floating in the Amundsen Sea in the form of a very ...
Major study assesses sea level changes due to ice sheet losses
(Phys.org) —Improved satellite measurements and computer simulations of ice sheets are creating a more accurate picture of the current and future rise in global sea level, according to an international ...
Effects of interannual climate variability on tropical tree cover
Tree cover in the tropics will likely change in surprising ways as climate change increases the frequency of extreme rainfall events, according to a study by scientists from Wageningen University published today in Nature Cl ...
Scientists detect dark lightning linked to visible lightning
(Phys.org)—Researchers have identified a burst of high-energy radiation known as 'dark lightning" immediately preceding a flash of ordinary lightning. The new finding provides observational evidence that ...
Researchers find new source for cold ocean water abyssal layer
Drought does long-term damage to rainforest
Recent droughts in the Amazon rainforest have effects that persist long after the rains have returned, a new study has shown.
New understanding of Antarctic's weight-loss
(Phys.org)—New data which more accurately measures the rate of ice-melt could help us better understand how Antarctica is changing in the light of global warming.
NASA examines very dangerous Super Typhoon Sanba
NASA's TRMM satellite examined super soaking Super Typhoon Sanba and powerful hot towering thunderstorms around its center and rain falling at a rate as high as three inches per hour.
A surprisingly bright superbubble
(Phys.org)—This composite image shows a superbubble in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a small satellite galaxy of the Milky Way located about 160,000 light years from Earth.
