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.
Oxygen depletion is affecting the ecology in the open ocean as well as near the coast. Anne Gro Vea Salvenes and Elin Darelius write about a recent study aiming to learn more about deoxygenation and its impact.
"The human footprint is everywhere, even on remote islands", John Birks writes about a new study of past ecology. All around the world, human arrival on islands rapidly affected the local biodiversity.
Sea level variations in Northern Europe are influenced by winds high above the Atlantic, new study shows. In the western part of the North Sea, the wind direction is more important than the wind speed.
Though sea-level contributions may be the same, increasing the spatial resolution in models provides more details about outlet glaciers. Heiko Goelzer writes about a new study of the Greenland ice sheet.
A new study published in Nature Geoscience shows that temperature in the Southern Ocean was more tightly linked to the extent of Antarctic glaciation during past greenhouse climates than previously thought.
