Earth and nature help us out by continuing to soak up carbon emissions. Carbon sinks, such as oceans and forests are still soaking up half of the greenhouse gases produced by human activity.

Huge Antarctic rift provides clues on ice loss

A massive ancient ice rift, up to one mile deep in places, has been found in Antarctica. The rift basin is linked to the warming ocean that effects ice flow, say the British scientists that found it.

New research finds a hotspot of accelerated rate sea-level rise (SLR) in the ocean off the North American Atlantic coast. The actual accelerated rate of SLR occurs along a 1000km stretch north from Cape Hatteras in North Carolina to Cape Cod near Boston, MA.

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.

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.
