Latest Quaternary glaciation Stories
As the last ice age was ending, about 13,000 years ago, a final blast of cold hit Europe, and for a thousand years or more, it felt like the ice age had returned.
A Lawrence Livermore scientist and his colleagues used radiocarbon dating to trace the pathway of carbon dioxide released from the deep ocean to the atmosphere at the end of the last ice age.
Boulders deposited by an ancient glacier that once covered the summit of Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii have provided more evidence of the extraordinary power and reach of global change, particularly the slowdown of a North Atlantic Ocean current system that could happen again and continues to be a concern to climate scientists.
International team of climate researchers drill through a mile and half of the Greenland ice sheet in search of climate change insights.
North Pacific circulation radically changed by past post-glacial warming.
A chain of past natural events may hold lessons for the future.
Increasingly, the Earth's climate appears to be more connected than anyone would have imagined.
Scientists have found the possible source of a huge carbon dioxide 'burp' that happened some 18,000 years ago and which helped to end the last ice age.
Researchers evaluate climate fluctuations from 115,000 years ago.
The seriousness of current global warming is underlined by a reconstruction of climate at Maxwell Bay in the South Shetland Islands of the Antarctic Peninsula over approximately the last 14,000 years, which appears to show that the current warming and widespread loss of glacial ice are unprecedented.
