Arctic and Antarctic sea ice at lowest since satellites began to measure 1979

Sea Ice Extent Sinks to Record Lows at Both Poles Arctic sea ice appears to have reached on March 7 a record low wintertime maximum extent, according to scientists at NASA and the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) in Boulder, Colorado. And on the opposite side of the planet, on March 3…

Peru Flooding Disaster Footage Compilation (March 2017)

“We are confronting a serious climatic problem,” said Peru’s president, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, in a broadcast to the nation on Friday afternoon. “There hasn’t been an incident of this strength along the coast of Peru since 1998.” The disaster – which came after a period of severe drought – has been blamed on abnormally high…

Making Water Filtration Less Harmful to the Environment

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, the U.S. East Coast faced a water crisis. The torrential rains had contaminated drinking water sources with millions of gallons of sewage water. Naturally, the authorities tried to disinfect the water with chlorine. Chlorine, traditionally, has been good at killing microorganisms. More recently, however, scientists have discovered…

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…
