Impact scenarios of climate change on Norwegian ecosystems are indefinite and convoluted, making dissemination to the general public difficult. How can scientists express themselves clearly and precisely?
A new statistical model may finally give meteorologists a better handle on snowfall amounts, even when measurements are made where snow is blown wildly into drifts. This information can boost hydropower efficiency as well as help us better understand climate change.
Food packaging. Drink bottles. Electronics. Children’s toys. Plastics make modern life possible, but they have a dark side. Plastics in the ocean break down into microscopic fragments that zooplankton not only eat, but pass up the food chain, a Finnish research team has shown.
A warmer planet can destabilise an important oceanographic process in the North Atlantic called deep water formation. If deep water formation is affected, it will have a profound impact on global climate and precipitation.
