If the sea rises one meter, will five centimeters more or less matter? That depends on where you are. Climate researchers develop methods for more precise projections of sea level rise in Northern Europe.

The oxygen level in the global ocean has declined, limiting the living space of fish. New research is aimed at improving future oxygen projections.

In the last decades, little sea ice in the Arctic in fall has been associated with cold winters in Europe. A new study signals little reason to prepare for frosty nights and heavy snow, despite less than normal ice in the north.

Have you ever wanted to go back in time? It is not so easy in the real world, but in the model world anything is possible.

Earth has been a snowball. In a new study, Heiko Goelzer and colleagues have used an Earth system model to study the transitions between a glaciated and a non-glaciated Earth, around 700 million years ago.

Injecting particles into the atmosphere would reduce the temperature increase. But for the world’s ecosystems there is no alternative to mitigation efforts.

Cyclones in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans are affected by the Gulf Stream and the Kuroshio. The temperature of the water below is only one of the factors controlling their development.
