Latest Quaternary glaciation Stories
NASA and European researchers have conducted a novel study to simultaneously measure, for the first time, trends in how water is transported across Earth's surface and how the solid Earth responds to the retreat of glaciers following the last major Ice Age, including the shifting of Earth's center of mass.
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.
