25 August, 2016 – India and China have good reason to cut their greenhouse emissions, scientists say: soot they are producing is damaging their own water resources.
15 August, 2016 – Record high temperatures in Arctic Russia are believed to be one of the main factors behind the emergence of the deadly anthrax disease in northwestern Siberia.
21 July, 2016 – After warming for nearly 50 years the Antarctic peninsula has begun cooling, though probably not for long, UK scientists say.
2 July, 2016 – Microscopic forms of coloured algae are suspected of helping to speed up the melting rate of snow by reducing its crucial ability to reflect the sun’s rays.
27 June, 2016 – Researchers warn that thawing soils in the Arctic tundra’s permafrost will release increasing quantities of carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere.
12 June, 2016 – Melting sea ice is affecting the closely-linked Arctic climate in a feedback that will speed up warming there, scientists say.
9 June, 2016 − Twelve months of record high temperatures globally have led to this month’s extent of Arctic ice falling to a million square kilometres less than four years ago.
8 June, 2016 − Analysis of satellite data records reveals that the worrying loss of hundreds of square kilometres of ice along West Antarctica’s coastline has been occurring for decades.
1 June, 2016 – Summer water shortages caused by the reduction of glacier ice mass could be alleviated by dams being constructed to contain springtime runoff from melting snow.
21 May, 2016 – A huge glacier in the frozen wastes of East Antarctica, a region previously thought stable, could melt much faster than expected, scientists say.
14 May, 2016 – New research indicates that melting of the Northern Hemisphere’s biggest ice sheet is being accelerated by the seismic impact of waves crashing against Greenland’s coastline.
