A network of international researchers launches a European collaboration on October 14th 2021. This collaboration will train a new generation of scientists to understand how past climate changes impacted Antarctica.
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.
When the last ice age was over, a large glacier covering the 1000 meter deep Hardangerfjord collapsed. These events at the end of the ice age in Norway, resemble what we are about to witness in today’s Greenland.
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.
New projections of the effect of greenhouse gas emissions on Greenland and Antarctica’s role in sea level rise, gives estimations beyond the amount that has already been set in motion by Earth’s warming climate.
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.
The water entering the Barents Sea is not as cooled down as it used to. This has a large effect on the climate in the area and may lead to fish and other marine life migrating, shown in a Nature Climate Change study.
