Chemicals in Fairbanks Winter Air

A chemical compound discovered in 2019 in Fairbanks' wintertime air accounts for a significant portion of the community's fine particulate pollution, according to new research that seeks ...

Climate Change Negatively Impacting Bumble Bees

Temperature changes have negatively impacted most species of bumble bees over the past 120 years, according to new new research. The researchers note that changes in temperature had more of a ...

Methods from Weather Forecasting Can Be Adapted to Assess Risk of COVID-19 Exposure

Engineers can adapt weather forecasting models to give individuals a personalized assessment of their risk of exposure to COVID-19 or other ...

Climate Change Could Lead to a Dramatic Temperature-Linked Decrease in Essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids, According to New Study

The effects of global climate change already are resulting in the loss of sea ice, accelerated sea level rise, and longer and more intense heat waves, among other threats. Now, a survey of planktonic ...

Proactive Approaches Needed to Enable Ecosystems to Adapt to Climate Change

As the need to address climate change becomes increasingly urgent so too does the concurrent need for proactive stewardship of the Earth's rapidly changing biosphere, according to new ...

Coastal Marsh Migration May Further Fuel Climate Change

As rising sea levels cause marshes to move inland in six mid-Atlantic states, coastal habitats will not serve as a carbon sink but instead will release more carbon into the atmosphere, a new modeling ...

Climate Changes Lead to Water Imbalance, Conflict in Tibetan Plateau

Climate change is putting an enormous strain on global water resources, and according to researchers, the Tibetan Plateau is suffering from a water imbalance so extreme that it could lead to an ...

Default Options Facilitate Faster Carbon Offsetting in Air Travel

Economists find that many air travelers more readily choose faster, but more expensive carbon offsetting options online if selecting a slower option requires action. However, the readiness to do so ...

How Climate Change Can Significantly Impact One of the World's Most Important Carbon-Rich Ecosystems

Mangrove forests play a vital role in the health of our planet. The trees and shrubs absorb a substantial amount of greenhouse gas emissions, help protect communities from rising sea levels, and act ...

Maine Wild Blueberry Fields Experience Warming Differently Depending on Location, Season, Time, Study Finds

To identify variations in climate across Maine wild blueberry fields at different times of the day and year, researchers analyzed annual and seasonal data from 1980-2020 for Washington, Hancock, ...

Tree Species Diversity Under Pressure

A new global study of 46,752 tree species shows that many of them are under substantial pressure and poorly protected. The research team has also studied how this situation can be improved by ...

Tapping the Ocean as a Source of Natural Products

Using DNA data, researchers have examined seawater to find not only new species of bacteria, but also previously unknown natural products that may one day prove ...

2021 Heat Wave Created 'Perfect Storm' for Shellfish Die-Off

It's hard to forget the excruciating heat that blanketed the Pacific Northwest in late June 2021. Temperatures in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia soared to well above 100 degrees ...

Modern Wind Turbines Can More Than Compensate for Decline in Global Wind Resource

Wind energy contributes significantly to the energy sector's sustainable, low-CO2 transformation. However, the efficiency of wind turbines depends on available wind resources and the technical ...

Remote Sensing Helps Track Carbon Storage in Mangroves

Researchers have developed a model that can estimate the productivity of mangrove forests at large scales. A remote sensing-based productivity model that considered the effects of tidal inundation ...

Wildlife--Human Conflicts Could Shift With Climate Change

Researchers modeled the risk of human -- elephant conflict in Thailand under different climate change scenarios using a risk framework. A spatial shift in the risk of conflict was observed with ...

Systematic Warming Pool Discovered in the Pacific Due to Human Activities

A long-term, increasingly warming pool of water in the northeast Pacific was recently discovered. It measures three million square kilometers, resulted from increased anthropogenic greenhouse-gas ...

Agriculture Emissions Pose Risks to Health and Climate

Environmental engineers determine the economic cost of reactive nitrogen emissions from agriculture, and their significant risks to populations through air pollution and climate ...
