Past studies of Antarctica’s accelerated glacier retreat focused on regional trends, a new study now finds continental trends of over ten percent of marine terminating glaciers moving inland. Current peak retreat has been documented to be in the ballpark of 25 meters each single year. Read Chris Mooney’s Washington Post article study summary goo.gl/HuxtxL /…

“Rapid Arctic Climate Change: What’s cloud got to do with it?” presented by Patrick Taylor. Originally presented at the Fall AGU 2017 conference on Monday, December 12, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.
Jennifer Francis, Ph.D., Research Professor I, Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences, Rutgers University, speaks about extreme weather changes. And how are those related to climate change? In this presentation, Dr. Francis will explain new research that links increasing extreme weather events with the rapidly warming and melting Arctic during recent decades. Evidence suggests that…
