Latest Long-term effects of global warming Stories
Researchers writing in the journal Nature say that ocean warming could be causing a four-fold increase in ice loss on the Greenland Ice Sheet.
The first comprehensive study of changes in the oxygenation of oceans at the end of the last Ice Age (between about 10 to 20,000 years ago) has implications for the future of our oceans under global warming.
New research into the Earth's paleoclimate history by NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies director James E. Hansen suggests the potential for rapid climate changes this century, including multiple meters of sea level rise, if global warming is not abated.
A mammoth iceberg that struck a glacier off Antarctica, dislodged a newer chunk of ice that could affect ocean currents and also lower the levels of oxygen in the worldâ€™s oceans.
Satellite observations and a state-of-the art regional atmospheric model have independently confirmed that the Greenland ice sheet is loosing mass at an accelerating rate, reports a new study in Science.
The US Department of Energy is at odds with researchers over the handling of a project aimed at showing the long-term effects of global warming on forests.
Ice core and ocean deposit comparisons show complex links between carbon dioxide levels, ocean currents and climate; may help explain past, present and future climate trends.
If the world continues to get warmer, vast amounts of methane gas trapped in ice under the sea could belch up and worsen climate change, according to a study.
