Methane in the East Siberian Arctic Shelf (2017)

The East Siberian Arctic Shelf has received more attention in recent years in regards to a potential contribution of the greenhouse gas methane, for the global methane budget, from several different sources. However, more studies are required to better constrain this potential accelerator of ongoing climate change. CREDITS The East Siberian Arctic Shelf has received…

Climate Change in the Arctic and Model Projections

This video with scope on permafrost melting, highlights some of the new developments of our understandings, of what happens in the Arctic due to global warming. The Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC), at the University of Alaska Fairbanks May 11, 2017. Professor of Geophysics Vladimir Romanovsky discusses the impact of Arctic permafrost thaw.

Thomas Chamberlin’s Call for Climate Action from 1899

“It now becomes necessary to assign agencies capable of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.” – Thomas Chrowder Chamberlin (1899) “A study of the life of the geological periods seems to indicate that there were very notable fluctuations in the total mass of living matter. To be sure there was a reciprocal relation between the…

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.

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…
