Arctic Winters Were Ice-Free Three To Five Million Years Ago
2013-07-30 06:29:43

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online During the Pliocene Epoch, the Earth was substantially warmer than it is today, despite similar concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. A new study, led by the University of Colorado Boulder, suggests year-round ice-free conditions across the surface of the Arctic Ocean could explain the difference. The study was published in a recent issue of Palaeogeography, Paleoclimatology, Palaeoecology. A new record was marked by...

Antarctic Permafrost Melting Faster Than Previously Thought
2013-07-24 17:51:21

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists reported in the journal Scientific Reports that permafrost in a section of Antarctica is melting faster than expected. Data from Garwood Valley in the McMurdo Dry Valleys region of Antarctica has shown that melt rates accelerated consistently from 2001 to 2012, rising to about ten times the valley's historical average for the present geologic epoch. Scientists previously thought the region's ground ice to be in equilibrium,...
