A new study tests various ice sheet modeling setups and shows that changing the surface mass balance has the strongest influence on the ice volume of the Greenland ice sheet on a millennial time scale.
The cold and warm climatic phases of the past 2000 years were not, as previously assumed, global phenomena. The climate varied greatly from region to region. That’s according to a study by the University of Bern that has just been published in Nature. In contrast to earlier times, current, anthropogenic climate change is occurring across the whole world at the same time.
Climate simulation models include more and more processes – not only physical, but also biogeochemical cycles. Can single individuals keep an overview of the major factors governing climate change? Christoph Heinze has led a study that can help you.
A newly published study in Nature Communications shows an important new understanding of the climate system that will allow us to better understand past climate variability. The results were uncovered by expeditions between the North Pole and Antarctica.
During the last ice age's maximum, at a time when Scandinavia was covered by a gigantic ice sheet, ice-free conditions prevailed in the Polar Ural Mountains. John-Inge Svendsen writes about a unique climate archive from Arctic Russia.
Climate change could bring about major disruption for the Indus River and for the millions of people who depend on it. Yet why is it still so challenging to forecast the future of the Indus’ water resources? Michel Mesquita, Lu Li and others investigate that in their new book chapter.
