Climate is often discussed in global terms, but it is the regional and local effects that will matter most to everyday people.
Scientists have found new evidence that the Bering Strait near Alaska flooded into the Arctic Ocean about 11,000 years ago, about 1,000 years earlier than widely believed, closing off the land bridge thought to be the major route for human migration from Asia to the Americas.
Scientists have found links in global variations in temperature that
may provide insight to the bigger picture of climate change.
Scientists have reported an unprecedented number of abandoned walrus calves in the Arctic Ocean, where melting sea
ice may be forcing mothers to abandon their pups.
Scientists have found evidence that tropical Atlantic Ocean temperatures may have once reached 107°F, about 25°F higher than ocean temperatures today and warmer than a hot tub. While these high ocean temperatures occurred millions of year ago, the new study suggests climate models underestimate future warming.
New scientific findings are strengthening the case that rapid climate change may be related to how vigorously ocean currents move heat between low and high latitude.
Corals from Papua New Guinea and Barbados indicate that changes in sea level, one of the key indexes for global climate change, may have been more frequent in the past than previously thought.
Scientists have long debated what causes glacial cycles, which have occurred most recently at intervals of about 100,000 years. A new study finds that these glacial cycles are paced by variations in the tilt of Earth’s axis, and that glaciations end when Earth's tilt is large.
The movie The Day After Tomorrow, released today by 20th Century Fox, paints a dramatic picture of the effects of climate change - and raises questions about the boundary between science and science fiction.
Tropical Plants Help Identify Lags Between Abrupt Climate and Vegetation Shifts in Different Parts of the World
Clues to the timing and cause of abrupt climate changes in the past may lie in ocean floor sediments, according to a study by scientists at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
