Hydrological Implications during Abrupt Climate Change

Researchers studying a rapid global warming event, around 56 million years ago, have shown evidence of major changes in the intensity of rainfall and flood events. The findings indicate some of the likely implications should current trends of rising carbon dioxide and global warming continue. https://scienmag.com/new-research-indicates-likely-hydrological-implications-of-rapid-global-warming

Arctic Sea Ice Extent 2nd lowest on Record for the Date

Another “warm” and slow freeze season in the #Arctic. Sea ice extent is the 2nd lowest on record for the date (2016 – lowest) & 1.9 million km^2 below the 1980s average… https://twitter.com/ZLabe/status/932663163476045825 Arctic Sea Ice Extent/Concentration http://sites.uci.edu/zlabe/arctic-sea-ice-extentconcentration Sound effects by http://TrailerMusicAcademy.com
