How to make the fish farming industry more climate friendly

A new Master's thesis shows that a renewable wind and solar energy solution can cut emissions by 50 per cent and at the same time increase profitability.

USA budget: Planned cuts to climate and satellite programs

A new budget "blueprint" released in the USA seeks to cut funding to climate and satellite programs. The developments have scientists on both sides of the Atlantic concerned.

“Irreversible” glacier retreat in West Antarctica began 70 years ago

The retreat of the Pine Island Glacier on the West Antarctic ice shelf began in the 1940s, kick-started by the arrival of warm water from the Pacific Ocean.

Meltwater from West Greenland is a hotspot for ocean nutrients

An underwater camera provides new insights into how microscopic particles in glacial meltwater could boost marine algae and help remove carbon from the atmosphere.

Climate change threatens the existence of Arctic musk oxen

Rising temperatures are making Arctic musk oxen struggle so much to find food that their very existence could soon be threatened, say scientists.

Melting Greenland ice has not slowed down ocean circulation

GREENLAND: Two new studies suggest that meltwater from the Greenland ice sheet has not slowed down ocean circulation in the North Atlantic and may not be behind the ominous cold patch of ocean called the ‘cold blob’.

Ecosystems driven out of sync by climate change

Climate change has altered the seasonal behaviour of plants and animals throughout the food chain and could reorganise entire ecosystems in the future.

Project aims to help Indian farmers cope with extreme weather

It's crucial that the information is correct and up to date. By using information technology, the farmers know how to handle the constantly changing climate.

Greenland melt linked to weird weather in Europe and USA

GREENLAND: The Arctic is warming more than anywhere else and Greenland might be melting faster than previously thought. See how this could affect you in our interactive map.

Buttock hair used to monitor Arctic musk ox

GREENLAND: Musk ox are a key species in the Arctic, but populations are in decline. A new method is helping scientists to monitor these animals in often difficult to reach, remote locations.
