Blue Carbon

Oceanic flora and vegetation like terrestrial forests are carbon sequesters, they store tons of carbon, blue carbon. In the climate change debate the impacts to air have dominated, with water not having featured as a critical medium of impact.

Leatherback turtles have to dig through 80cm of sand after hatching on the beach. Hotter dryer conditions associated with changes in climate are making this increasingly difficult.

A new system of measuring urban carbon dioxide levels could help verify reductions if a global treaty to limit emissions is ever agreed.

West Antarctic ice shelf - a nudge and a push from collapse?

West Antarctic ice shelf - a nudge and a push from collapse?

Posted Thu, 10 May 2012 20:51:22 GMT by Martin Leggett

An important ice shelf responsible for pinning back much of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is in danger of collapse, according to new studies out today. Ice-penetrating radar has discovered giant pools of sea-water underneath much of the ice shelf; models suggest that warm waters melting it from beneath may cause the shelf to give way. That could potentially open the gates to the great mass of ice stacked up behind it - and more significant sea level rises.

The melting of Greenland's glaciers is slower than scientists previously thought and so may not present such a serious threat to rising sea levels, according to University of Washington research.

A new study on ice loss in Antarctica by the British Antarctic Survey confirms what we already know about the effects of global warming but it differentiates between the effects of ocean currents, their cause and the air temperature effects at the ice surface.

Increased carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere played a bigger part in ending the last ice age than changes in the Earth's orbit, say American researchers.

New study on European butterflies looks at the effects of global warming on habitat choice. The research investigates if butterflies are able to respond to climate changes by making use of microclimates in their current habitats.

Devastating start to US tornado season - a warning?

Posted Thu, 08 Mar 2012 14:49:13 GMT by Martin Leggett

After 100 tornadoes gouged their way across the US last week, 2012 is looking like it may outdo last year's woeful tornado toll - which earned 2011 the moniker 'The Year of the Tornado'. That has many asking whether global warming will play a hand in producing more stormy sequels in the years to come.

The way that human evolution has historically adapted to climate change and the prevailing environment and the way that modern humans persistently modify their environment and ignore the consequences of changes to the global climate, thus risking the future existance of the human race.

A new study looks at how water habitats affect the dispersal ability of animals. The hypothesis tested is if dragonflies and damselflies are able to adapt more quickly to recent climate change where the water is still or lentic.
