Europe will be spared the worst economic impacts of climate change by a slowing down of the Gulf Stream, new research predicts.
Mentioning politics in a message about an environmental issue may turn people—even people informed about the issue—away from supporting a pro-science solution, according to a team of researchers.
The waters surrounding Antarctica may be one of the last places to experience human-driven climate change. New research from the University of Washington and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology finds that ocean currents ...
Think climate change and what comes to mind? The Arctic Ocean melting like an ice cube under a July sun? Island paradises swallowed up by rising seas? Beefier hurricanes crashing into coastlines with greater frequency?
Fish can adjust to warmer ocean temperatures, but heat waves can still kill them, a team of researchers from Sweden, Norway and Australia reports in an article published this week in Nature Communications.
Dairies use intermittent sprinkler systems to cool cows in warm weather, but little experimental work has been done to determine how much water is needed to achieve beneficial effects. A group of dairy scientists conducted ...
A new study provides insight into how the current El Niño, one of the strongest on record, formed in the Pacific Ocean. The new research finds easterly winds in the tropical Pacific Ocean stalled a potential El Niño in ...
Most computer simulations of climate change are underestimating by at least one degree Fahrenheit how warm the world will get this century, a new study suggests.
New research in north-central Mongolia illuminates the effects of global climate change on certain vulnerable species of salmon.
El Nino years can have a big impact on the littlest plants in the ocean, and NASA scientists are studying the relationship between the two.
