Leaving More Big Fish in the Sea Reduces Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Leaving more big fish -- like tuna, sharks, mackerel and swordfish -- in the sea reduces the amount of carbon dioxide released into the Earth's atmosphere. This is because when a fish dies in the ...

Beaches Can Survive Sea-Level Rises as Long as They Have Space to Move

An international team of coastal scientists has dismissed suggestions that half the world's beaches could become extinct over the course of the 21st ...

Back to the Future of Climate

Hot and humid: Using minerals from ancient soils, researchers are reconstructing the climate that prevailed on Earth some 55 million years ago. Their findings will help them to better assess how our ...

Healthcare as a Climate Solution

Although the link may not be obvious, healthcare and climate change -- two issues that pose major challenges around the world -- are in fact more connected than society may realize. So say ...

Shifts in Flowering Phases of Plants Due to Reduced Insect Density

A research group has discovered that insects have a decisive influence on the biodiversity and flowering phases of plants. If there is a lack of insects where the plants are growing, their flowering ...

Metal Deposits from Chinese Coal Plants End Up in the Pacific Ocean

Emissions from coal-fired power plants in China are fertilizing the North Pacific Ocean with a metal nutrient important for marine life, according to new findings from a research team. The ...

Coastal Permafrost More Susceptible to Climate Change Than Previously Thought

Research has found permafrost to be mostly absent throughout the shallow seafloor along a coastal field site in northeastern Alaska. That means carbon can be released from coastline sources much more ...

Ice Loss Likely to Continue in Antarctica, Even If Climate Change Is Brought Under Control, Study Finds

A new study has revealed that ice loss in Antarctica persisted for many centuries after it was initiated and is expected to ...

Protected Areas Help Waterbirds Adapt to Climate Change

Climate change pushes species distribution areas northward. However, the expansion of species ranges is not self-evident due to e.g. habitat degradation and unsustainable harvesting caused by human ...

New Sediment Archive for Historical Climate Research

Geological investigations of low-temperature young deposits on the Styrian Erzberg provide paleoclimatology with new data on the Earth's history and its ...

The Effects of Wildfires and Spruce Beetle Outbreaks on Forest Temperatures

Results indicate that wildfires may play a role in accelerating climate-driven species changes in mountain forests by compounding regional warming ...

A New Material for Separating CO2 from Industrial Waste Gases, Natural Gas, or Biogas

With a new material, the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) can be specifically separated from industrial waste gases, natural gas, or biogas, and thereby made available for recycling. The ...

Depths of the Weddell Sea Are Warming Five Times Faster Than Elsewhere

Over the past three decades, the depths of the Antarctic Weddell Sea have warmed five times faster than the rest of the ocean at depths exceeding 2,000 ...

Declines in Shellfish Species on Rocky Seashores Match Climate-Driven Changes

Mussels, barnacles, and snails are declining in the Gulf of Maine, according to a new article by biologists. Their 20-year dataset reveals that the populations' steady dwindling matches up with ...

Driver of the Largest Mass Extinction in the History of the Earth Identified

252 million years ago, at the transition from the Permian to the Triassic epoch, most of the life forms existing on Earth became extinct. Using latest analytical methods and detailed model ...

Paper Recycling Must Be Powered by Renewables to Save Climate

The study found that greenhouse gas emissions would increase by 2050 if we recycled more paper, as current methods rely on fossil fuels and electricity from the ...

A Renewable Solution to Keep Cool in a Warming World

Month-after-month, year-after-year, the world continues to experience record high temperatures. In response to this and exacerbated by a growing global population, it is expected that ...

Marine Protected Area Urged for Antarctica Peninsula

Species on the Antarctic Peninsula are threatened by climate change and human activities including commercial fishing, tourism, and research ...

Deep Sea Coral Time Machines Reveal Ancient CO2 Burps

The fossilized remains of ancient deep-sea corals may act as time machines providing new insights into the effect the ocean has on rising CO2 ...

Arctic Ocean Sediments Reveal Permafrost Thawing During Past Climate Warming

Sea floor sediments of the Arctic Ocean can reveal how permafrost responds to climate warming. Researchers have found evidence of past permafrost thawing during climate warming events at the end of ...

Supercomputing Study Breaks Ground for Tree Mapping, Carbon Research

A new method for mapping the location and size of trees growing outside of forests helped scientists discover billions of trees in arid and semi-arid regions and lays the groundwork for more accurate ...

Are Climate Scientists Being Too Cautious When Linking Extreme Weather to Climate Change?

Climate science has focused on avoiding false alarms when linking extreme events to climate change. But it could learn from how weather forecasters warn the public of hazardous events to include a ...

Long-Term Data Show a Recent Acceleration in Chemical and Physical Changes in the Ocean

New research uses data from two sustained open-ocean hydrographic stations in the North Atlantic Ocean near Bermuda to demonstrate recent changes in ocean physics and chemistry since the 1980s. The ...

Unprecedented Energy Use Since 1950 Has Transformed Humanity's Geologic Footprint

A new study makes clear the extraordinary speed and scale of increases in energy use, economic productivity and global population that have pushed the Earth towards a new geological epoch, known as ...
