Abrupt Climate Change In The Arctic (And Beyond) An Update

AGU Fall Meeting 2013: Our understanding of future Arctic change is informed by the history of past changes, which often have been both large and abrupt. The well-known ice-age events such as the Younger Dryas show how sea-ice changes can amplify forcing to produce very large responses, with wintertime sea ice especially important. These changes…

Scientists’ Concerns Challenge Conservative Sea-Level Rise Projections

Published on YouTube Dec 5, 2013: The most sobering evidence of the planet’s response to greenhouse gases comes from the fossil record. New evidence scientists are collecting suggests that ice sheets may be more vulnerable than previously believed, which has huge implications for sea level rise.

Amazon River Basin Tipping Point

Published on YouTube Dec 13, 2013: The Amazon River Basin holds 20% of the world ‘s freshwater and produces 20% of the world’s oxygen. And plays a major role in stabilizing the earth’s ecosystem. But the balance is shifting. Production and profit for a fast-growing economy jeopardizes the preservation of Amazonia. As Brazilians-and the world-watch…

Rebound an Earth Story

Glacial isostatic adjustment, why we have glacial and interglacial periods, how we can reconstruct climate history, and how the Earth is responding to the retreat of the continental glaciers. Video presentation by Meg Rosenburg (AGU Fall Meeting 2013) Post-glacial rebound

Scientists Measure Bubbling Sounds of Melting Glaciers

Glaciers Sizzle, Squirt Bubbles When Melting To Create Loudest Marine Environment; These Sounds Could Help To Measure Ice Melt By Sreeja VN: Sizzling underwater glacial ice, as it melts into warmer sea water, creates one of the loudest natural marine environments, and the air bubbles that pop during the process could help scientists measure the rate of…
