Ice sheets impact core elements of the Earth’s carbon cycle

The Earth's carbon cycle is crucial in controlling the greenhouse gas content of our atmosphere, and ultimately our climate.

Study finds that the recent global sea level acceleration started already in the 1960s

Satellite measurements show that global mean sea level rise has been increasing since at least 1993; prior to that, however, the inexistence of satellite data and the sparse tide gauge data limits understanding of the long-term trend. Combining tide gauge and satellite data a new study now shows an acceleration since the 1960s that is linked to increases and shifts in Southern Hemisphere westerly winds.

Instability in Antarctic ice projected to make sea level rise rapidly

A study says that instability hidden within Antarctic ice is likely to accelerate its flow into the ocean and push sea level up at a more rapid pace than previously expected.
