Ice stream draining Greenland Ice Sheet sensitive to changes over past 45,000 years

Interestingly, the loss of ice from the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream (NEGIS) took place not only during the warm Holocene period, but also during a period…

In grasslands, longer spring growing season offsets higher summer temperatures

Grasslands across North America will face higher summer temperatures and widespread drought by the end of the century, according to a new study.

Even thermally tolerant corals are in hot water when it comes to bleaching

Coral bleaching happens when sea temperatures rise, causing the breakdown of the symbiosis between coral and their zooxanthellae (the microscopic plants which…
