Released by phytoplankton, dimethyl sulfide may play an important role in regulating global climate.
In the regions of Greenland where it is supposed to be coldest, researchers found a warming within ten years that was unprecedented in the last 1,000 years.
Since the 2018 drought in Cape Town, the idea of towing icebergs, from 50th parallel south, has resurfaced.
If we continue as before and fail to limit global warming to 1.5°C, most glaciers will have disappeared by the end of the century.
Climate change may be responsible for turning streams and rivers in Alaska’s Arctic orange.
Ice ages in Antarctica occurred not only every 100,000 years, but at much shorter intervals, according to recent research.
A new report describes the climatic changes in the Arctic and the effects on animals and plants. However, there are large knowledge gaps about insects.
An AWI research team discovered that ice streams from Greenland’s ice sheet can reconfigure within a few thousand years.
In Greenland, temperatures in autumn were well above average at most measuring stations and even in the middle of the ice sheet up to 9.5°C above.
A study shows that fires in the Russian Arctic and Siberia are due to changes in the Arctic climate.
The warming of the Arctic Ocean has led to more moisture and therefore more snow in northern Europe, a Japanese study shows.
A study shows that more frequent sightings of new whale species in southeast Greenland have likely tilted the state of the marine ecosystem.
The amount of greenhouse gases emitted from the permafrost soils of the Arctic could, in a worst-case scenario, be higher than the amount emitted by the United States in 150 years.
Perhaps 90% of the snow crabs in the Bering Sea have disappeared without a trace
Contrary to previous assumptions, Antarctic ice sheet movements are also subject to seasonal variations, as are Arctic and alpine land ice masses.
Geoengineering, for some, is the solution to mitigating climate change. However, micro glass spheres on Arctic sea ice do not help.
The more sea ice disappears in the Arctic, the higher is the acidification of the ocean there, shows a study by an international research team.
Sea ice off the East coast of Greenland prevents moist air from the South from reaching western Spitsbergen. But due to climate change, this barrier is lacking more often.
One of them is more troubling than the other
Pre-historic Alaska appears to have experienced seasonal floods capable of overwhelming a grown dinosaur
Global warming won’t mean the end of algae in Canada’s Arctic, but it will change the species found there
A new study suggests that the glacier could retreat even faster in the future, with massive consequences for global sea levels.
Driftwood in the Arctic appears to be another victim of climate change. By 2060, sea ice could be gone and with it the means of transport for driftwood.
Dwindling sea ice and rising ocean temperatures are depriving Arctic whale species of habitat and displacing them further north.
