Scientist Alex Gardner explains Climate and Sea Level Rise (Feb 2017)

Earth scientist Alex Gardner reveals a world of rapid change as seen through the eyes of a NASA glaciologist. Glaciers and ice sheets hold massive amounts of freshwater locked up as ice. These stores of freshwater feed water supplies that support millions of people around the world, raise global sea levels, and can even change…

Ocean oxygen falling two to three times faster than predicted

The trend of oxygen falling is about two to three times faster than what we predicted from the decrease of solubility associated with the ocean warming.

Expert explains Future Sea Level Rise (2017)

Eric Rignot (NASA/JPL) one of the world’s most prominent glaciologists, who is behind a landmark report revealing the unstoppable collapse of a large part of Antarctica, gave a lecture at Victoria University of Wellington in February 2017, on future sea level rise.

Dynamic deoxygenation within intensified coastal upwelling circulations (September 2016)

September 2016: Professor Andrew Bakun (University of Miami, USA) speaks at Royal Society event Ocean ventilation and deoxygenation in a warming world. Abstract Major deoxygenation commonly takes place in ocean regions that feature particularly intense coastal upwelling circulations. Prominent examples discussed herein include the seasonal Somali Current upwelling, which during the southwest monsoon becomes the…

Biogeochemical regulation: Anoxia in the Past and Present (September 2016)

September 2016: Professor Andrew Watson FRS, (University of Exeter, UK) speaks at Royal Society event Ocean ventilation and deoxygenation in a warming world. Abstract The major biogeochemical cycles which keep the present-day Earth habitable are linked by a network of feedbacks which has led to a broadly stable chemical composition of the oceans and atmosphere…

Ralph Keeling: Oxygen trends in Atmosphere and Ocean. What do we know?

September 2016: Professor Ralph Keeling ( Scripps Institute for Oceanography, USA) speaks at The Royal Society event, Ocean ventilation and deoxygenation in a warming world. Abstract Human activities are causing systematic decreases in the O2 content of both the atmosphere and the oceans. The atmospheric loss is driven primarily by the burning of fossil-fuels while…

Jim Hansen: Hell Will Break Loose – Ice Melt, Sea Level Rise and Superstorms

The main point that I want to make concerns the threat of irreparable harm, which I feel we have not communicated well enough to people who most need to know, the public and policymakers. I’m not sure how we can do that better, but I comment on it at the end of this transcript. In…

NASA: 2016 Arctic Sea Ice Minimum Ties Second Lowest on Record

Arctic sea ice appeared to have reached its annual lowest extent on Sept. 10, NASA and the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado at Boulder reported today. An analysis of satellite data showed that at 1.60 million square miles (4.14 million square kilometers), the 2016 Arctic sea ice…

Watch how cities will get flooded with 10 feet sea level rise

Visualisation of sea level rise of 10 feet (3 meters), based on the risk zone map, provided by Climate Central. Current estimates about future sea level rise, consider up to 10 feet already locked in, due to the greenhouse gas emissions we have emitted so far. How fast this will happen is not certain yet.…

Sea level rise estimates doubled

Brady Dennis and Chris Mooney from The Washington post, recently reported on updated sea level rise projections. Sea levels could rise nearly twice as much as previously predicted by the end of this century if carbon dioxide emissions continue unabated, an outcome that could devastate coastal communities around the globe, according to new research published Wednesday. The main reason? Antarctica. Scientists…
