Sea Level Rise Threatens Larger Number of People Than Earlier Estimated

More people live close to sea coast than earlier estimated, assess researchers in a new study. These people are the most vulnerable to the rise of the sea level as well as to the increased number of floods and intensified storms. By using recent increased resolution datasets, Aalto University researchers estimate that 1.9 billion inhabitants,

Ice Sheet Modeling of Greenland, Antarctica Helps Predict Sea-Level Rise

LIVERMORE, Calif.–The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets will make a dominant contribution to 21st century sea-level rise if current climate trends continue. However, predicting the expected loss of ice sheet mass is difficult due to the complexity of modeling ice sheet behavior. To better understand this loss, a team of Sandia National Laboratories researchers has

Sentinel-3a Successfully Launches for Ocean and Land Monitoring Mission

The third ESA-developed satellite carrying four Earth-observing instruments was launched today, ready to provide a ‘bigger picture’ for Europe’s Copernicus environment programme. The 1150 kg Sentinel-3A satellite was carried into orbit on a Rockot launcher from Plesetsk, Russia, at 17:57 GMT (18:57 CET; 20:57 local time) on 16 February. After a first burn starting about

AWARE Project Launched to Gain New Insights on Climate of Antarctica

It has been nearly half a century since scientists have collected extensive climate or atmospheric data from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS). But late last year, scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, working with a group led by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, embarked on a new project that

Impact of Oceans Recognized at COP21 as Never Before

The ocean has been recognized at COP21 as never before. Previously all but ignored within the UNFCCC process, the last ten days have seen the ocean come up time and again, in terms of sea level rise, acidification, warming, saltwater incursion, storm surges, oxygen production, carbon sequestration, glacial loss and even habitat creep for fish

Protection of Our Marine Life Needs More Than Marine Protected Areas, We Need to Make It Resilient

Our oceans and coasts are changing rapidly due to human impacts. But our very existence depends on the resources and functions that their biodiversity and productive habitats provide. Learning to manage the habitats and biodiversity within our oceans and coasts is one of the greatest challenges of this century.
