Climate changes faster than species can adapt

The ranges of species will have to change dramatically as a result of climate change between now and 2100 because the climate will change more than 100 times faster than the rate at which species can adapt, according to a newly pub...

Story tips from the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National...

When a Rhode-Island-sized ice chunk separates from Greenland, is the calving due to typical seasonal variations or a long-term warmer world? A project called the Scalable, Efficient, and Accurate Community Ice Sheet Model, or SEACISM, on the Jagua...

New discoveries improve climate models

New discoveries on how underwater ridges impact the ocean's circulation system will help improve climate projections. An underwater ridge can trap the flow of cold, dense water at the bottom of the ocean. Without the ridge, deepwater can flow free...

More frequent drought likely in eastern Africa

(Santa Barbara, Calif.) -- -- The increased frequency of drought observed in Eastern Africa over the last 20 years is likely to continue as long as global temperatures continue to rise, according to UC Santa Barbara scientist Park Williams. T...

More frequent drought likely in eastern Africa

The increased frequency of drought observed in eastern Africa over the last 20 years is likely to continue as long as global temperatures continue to rise, according to new research published in Climate Dynamics. This poses increased risk to the ...

Scientists find that debris on certain Himalayan glaciers may prevent melting

(Santa Barbara, Calif.) -- -- A new scientific study shows that debris coverage -- -- pebbles, rocks, and debris from surrounding mountains -- -- may be a missing link in the understanding of the decline of glaciers. Debris is distinct from ...

UNH scientists help show potent GHG emissions are 3 times estimated...

DURHAM, N.H. -- In a study published December 20 in the Proceedings of the National Academy Sciences (PNAS), a team of researchers including University of New Hampshire scientists Wilfred Wollheim, William McDowell, and Jody Potter details findings...

Dodds contributes to new national study on nitrogen water pollution

MANHATTAN, KAN. -- A Kansas State University professor is part of a national research team that discovered that streams and rivers produce three times more greenhouse gas emissions than estimated by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. T...

Global rivers emit 3 times IPCC estimates of greenhouse gas nitrous...

What goes in must come out, a truism that now may be applied to global river networks. Human-caused nitrogen loading to river networks is a potentially important source of nitrous oxide emission to the atmosphere. Nitrous oxide is a potent greenho...

Waterways contribute to growth of potent greenhouse gas

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Nitrous oxide, a potent greenhouse gas, has increased by more than 20 percent over the last century, and nitrogen in waterways is fueling part of that growth, according to a Michigan State University study. Based on this n...
