  10. Cost of not adapting to climate change would be at least five times higher

    A study on damage to coastal considered only real estate loss. If nothing is done, researchers say, losses might be up to ten times higher if the predicament includes the spreading of flood- and...
  11. Old fish few and far between under fishing pressure

    A new study has found that, for dozens of fish populations around the globe, old fish are greatly depleted -- mainly because of fishing pressure. Old fish are increasingly missing in many populations...
  12. Forest fires are not limited to hot or temperate climates

    Evidence of wildfires dating back 20,000 years was recently discovered in the Massif du Queyras, in the heart of the French Alps, 2,240 meters above sea level. This discovery echoes the recent...
  13. Black Sea water temperatures may buck global trend

    Scientists have successfully simulated the Black Sea’s long term currents, salt water content and temperature for the first time.

  15. Ancient tree reveals cause of spike in Arctic temperature

    A kauri tree trapped in a New Zealand swamp for 30,000 years may have overturned the idea that a slowdown in ocean currents in the North Atlantic may be entirely responsible for Dansgaard-Oeschger...
  16. USA threatened by more frequent flooding

    The East Coast of the United States is threatened by more frequent flooding in the future. According to this study, the states of Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina are most at risk. Their...
  17. How openings in Antarctic sea ice affect worldwide climate

    In a new analysis of climate models, researchers reveal the significant global effects that seemingly anomalous polynyas, or openings in sea ice, can have. Their findings indicate that heat escaping...
  18. Ship exhaust makes oceanic thunderstorms more intense

    Thunderstorms directly above two of the world's busiest shipping lanes are significantly more powerful than storms in areas of the ocean where ships don't travel, according to new research.

  19. Direct evidence of sea level 'fingerprints' discovered

    The first observation of sea level 'fingerprints' -- tell-tale differences in sea level rise around the world in response to changes in continental water and ice sheet mass -- has been reported by...
  20. Increasing effective decision-making for coastal marine ecosystems

    Marine restoration, rather than protection, might be the most cost-effective solution for coastal marine ecosystems suffering from human activities, a new study has found. The study examined how to...
  21. Warmer world may bring more local, less global, temperature variability

    Many tropical or subtropical regions could see increases in naturally occurring temperature variability as Earth warms over coming decades, a new study suggests. These local changes could occur even...
  22. Massive Antarctic volcanic eruptions linked to abrupt Southern hemisphere climate cha

    New findings document a 192-year series of volcanic eruptions in Antarctica that coincided with accelerated deglaciation about 17,700 years ago.
