The confluence of the tiny San Pedro River and the much larger Gila was once one of the richest locales in one of the most productive river ecosystems in the American Southwest, an incomparable oasis of biodiversity.
The average body size of humans has fluctuated significantly over the last million years and is strongly linked to temperature.
For the hundreds of millions of people living in coastal regions around the world, rising seas driven by climate change pose a direct threat.
Large, smoky fires are raging through forests in northeastern Russia.
In the mid-2030s, every U.S. coast will experience rapidly increasing high-tide floods, when a lunar cycle will amplify rising sea levels caused by climate change.
From above, the Antarctic Ice Sheet might look like a calm, perpetual ice blanket that has covered Antarctica for millions of years. But the ice sheet can be thousands of meters deep at its thickest, and it hides hundreds of meltwater lakes where its base meets the continent’s bedrock.
A study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences led by Michael Moore at Washington University in St. Louis finds that dragonfly males have consistently evolved less breeding coloration in regions with hotter climates.
A global team of scientists has observed the sudden drainage of a large, deep, ice-covered lake within an Antarctic ice shelf—a rare phenomenon that could be interpreted as an ominous sign for the future survival of the ice sheet, and potential global sea-level rise.
Scientists from Trinity are homing in on a recipe that would enable the future production of entirely renewable, clean energy from which water would be the only waste product.
The Arctic is warming at approximately twice the global rate.
