Global warming puts fish mating at risk

Climate change is accelerating ocean warming globally, and heat waves are becoming more frequent and intense. This is of great concern as heat is a deadly threat to aquatic animals. But the extent of danger depends – some fish species are more heat-tolerant than others.... click to read more

‘Rivers in the sky’ carrying warm air destroy precious Antarctic sea ice

Looking at satellite images or Google Earth, you often find continent-long elongated clouds covering our planet, which may look like "rivers" running through the sky. These rivers are narrow belts of concentrated moisture in the atmosphere. Atmospheric rivers extend from the tropics (where water tends... click to read more

What Caribbean coasts can tell us about the future of climate change

Today's climate change is driving geological changes such as coastal erosion and expansion of arid areas. It is also threatening our planet. Such dramatic climate changes happened before in the planet's history. These past events may teach us to forecast what the ongoing events are... click to read more

Extreme glacier melt and climate change

Glaciers around the world are melting faster than in any previous decade since measurements began. Glaciers form when snow accumulates over many years and compresses into ice. Glaciers accumulate snow in the winter, and then melt ice in the summer. Cold temperatures, more snow, or both,... click to read more

Global warming blamed for Earth’s largest mass extinction

The industrial burning of fossil fuels is adding greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, trapping heat near the planet's surface and warming the oceans. A major effect of warming is to reduce the amount of dissolved oxygen (O2) found in the sea. This effect arises for... click to read more
