Greenland Melt contributes to Sea Level Rise

Using satellite and field work after an extreme melt event in Greenland, a UCLA-led study finds that melt-prone areas on its ice sheet develop a remarkably efficient drainage system of stunning blue streams and rivers that carry meltwater into moulins (sinkholes) and ultimately the ocean. However, the team’s measurements at the ice’s edge show that…

ScienceCasts: No Turning Back – West Antarctic Glaciers in Irreversible Decline


A 2014 study study led by NASA researchers shows that half-a-dozen key glaciers in the West Antarctic Ice Sheet are in irreversible decline. The melting of these sprawling icy giants will affect global sea levels in the centuries ahead.

The Significance of El Niño and Its Impacts

This event (December 2014), shows the significance of El Niño through observations—satellite, in situ, and model simulations—its physical mechanisms and associated biological and biogeochemical impacts, with a focus on the Equatorial Pacific and South America. The event provides a detailed discussion on seasonal ENSO forecasts and will bridge together knowledge from other domestic and international…

Sea level rise – fact & fiction: John Englander at TEDxBocaRaton

2014, TED Talk: Sea level is rising for the first time in thousands of years. Oceanographer John Englander, author of “High Tide On Main Street” explains why it is unstoppable, regardless of efforts to be ‘green’ and sustainable. Using powerful images, he encourages us to embrace the new reality that the shoreline is moving, that…
