NASA’s new fleet of satellites will offer insights into the wild cards of climate change – Science Magazine

Planned NASA satellites will measure the vertical motions that lead to towering storm clouds. SANTIAGO BORJA By Paul VoosenMay. 5, 2021 , 11:15 AM NASA is about to announce its next generation of Earth-observing satellites. As soon as this month,…

Catastrophic sea-level rise from Antarctic melting possible with severe global warming – EurekAlert

The Antarctic ice sheet is much less likely to become unstable and cause dramatic sea-level rise in upcoming centuries if the world follows policies that keep global warming below a key 2015 Paris climate agreement target, according to a Rutgers…

How climate change has shifted Earth’s axis – Mashable

Climate 101 is a Mashable series that answers provoking and salient questions about Earth’s warming climate.   Greenland is purging ice into the ocean. And Earth noticed.  A strange impact of the continuously warming climate is that colossal amounts of…

Visualised: glaciers then and now

The world’s glaciers are melting at an ever-increasing pace, with one report suggesting the rate of ice loss roughly doubles every 10 years. Scientists are saying the rapid disappearance of mountain glaciers – separate from the Greenland and Antarctic ice…

Global glacier retreat has accelerated

(ETH Zurich) An international research team including scientists from ETH Zurich has shownthat almost all the world’s glaciers are becoming thinner and losing mass – andthat these changes are picking up pace. The team’s analysis is the most comprehensive and accurate of its kind to date.

‘Alarming’: World’s glaciers are melting faster than ever because of global warming, study says – USA TODAY

What was once considered to be permanent ice has declined in volume almost everywhere around the globe. Half the world’s glacial loss is coming from the United States and Canada. The near-uniform melting “mirrors the global increase in temperature” and…

Reversing warming quickly could prevent worst climate change effects: Study – Mongabay.com

Irreversible and catastrophic environmental tipping points could still be avoided, even if we exceed global emission reduction targets — provided the world is able to reverse overshoot quickly, according to researchers. Simple mathematical models of four earth system tipping elements…

Climate change has been altering Earth’s axis for at least 30 years – Livescience.com

Climate change has been altering Earth‘s poles since at least the 1990s, new research finds.  The planet’s spin on its axis is determined, in part, by the distribution of weight around the globe, in the same way the spin of…

Climate Change Has Shifted the Axis of the Earth – SciTechDaily

Loss of water on land through ice melting and human-caused factors is changing the movement of the North and South poles. Glacial melting due to global warming is likely the cause of a shift in the movement of the poles…
