Latest north Atlantic Stories
It’s one of those classic “chicken and egg” conundrums. Most earth scientists agree that there is a connection between sudden increases in the number of icebergs, known as iceberg ‘pulses’, and cycles of abrupt climate change during the last glacial period.

The North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis), also known as the black right whale or the northern right whale, is one of three right whales in the Eubalaena genus. It can be found in a small population of about 396 individuals in the western North Atlantic.

This species migrates into the western North Atlantic to feed in the spring, summer, and fall...
