Satellites Capture Break-Off of Massive Iceberg in Antarctica

Over the last few months, a chunk of Antarctica’s Larsen C ice shelf has been hanging on precariously as a deep crack cut across the ice. Witnessed by the European Space Agency (ESA) Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission, a lump of ice more than twice the size of Luxembourg finally broke off on July 12, 2017.

Record-Low Sea Ice

On Feb. 13, 2017, the combined Arctic and Antarctic sea-ice numbers were at their lowest point since satellites began to continuously measure sea ice in 1979.

Satellite Data Reveal Effects of Aerosols

Earth’s atmosphere is dusted with tiny particles known as aerosols, which include windblown ash, sea salt, pollution, and other natural and human-produced materials. Aerosols can absorb or scatter sunlight, affecting how much light reflects back into space or stays trapped in the atmosphere.

Geospatial Science Expert to Help Determine Greenhouse Gas Guidelines

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A geospatial science expert at the University of Arkansas will help refine international guidelines for greenhouse gas inventories that will be considered for adoption by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The panel, known as IPCC, was created to provide policymakers with regular assessments of the scientific basis of climate change, its

China’s Forest Recovery Shows Hope for Mitigating Global Climate Change

China's sweeping program to restore forests across the country is working. The vast destruction of China's forests, leveled after decades of logging, floods and conversion to farmland, has become a story of recovery, according to the first independent verification published in today's Science Advances by Michigan State University (MSU) researchers. "It is encouraging that China's

Mediterranean Drought Worst in 900 Years

A new NASA study used remote-sensing and tree-ring data to conclude that the recent drought that began in 1998 in the eastern Mediterranean Levant region (Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Turkey) is likely the worst drought of the last nine centuries.

NASA Study: Examination of Earth’s Recent History Key to Predicting Global Temperatures

Estimates of future global temperatures based on recent observations must account for the differing characteristics of each important driver of recent climate change, according to a new NASA study published Dec. 14 in the journal Nature Climate Change. To quantify climate change, researchers need to know the Transient Climate Response (TCR) and Equilibrium Climate Sensitivity (ECS)

Conservationists Using Big Data to Understand Impacts of Climate Change

Paris, Dec. 9, 2015 – As climate change disrupts rural communities around the world, policymakers face the task of helping their societies become more resilient. In many places, though, an information gap prevents decisions from being made with the best available evidence. Now, a new tool from Conservation International (CI) is making a wealth of

Study Incorporates Ecological Processes Into Earth System Models to Improve Climate Change Predictions

BLACKSBURG, Va., Nov. 23, 2015 — A professor in Virginia Tech’s College of Natural Resources and Environment ( www.cnre.vt.edu) is launching a new project to enable scientists to look many decades ahead and predict the effectiveness of land management practices in agriculture and forestry to mitigate climate change. “The project is focused on predicting how forest
