Ancient plant and animal DNA buried in Arctic sediments preserve a 50,000-year history of Arctic ecosystems, suggesting that climate change contributed to mammoth extinction.
Coastal wind patterns correlate with mass strandings of dolphins, suggesting that storm-induced upwelling could be influencing cetaceans’ behavior.
While collecting data using an app, volunteers have the chance to support research and fight mosquito populations on the ground.
A new study explores a possible proxy for seasonal freshwater input that could elucidate changes in alpine snowpack as the planet warms.
The Cormorant Oceanography Project is using sensors deployed on diving marine birds to collect broadly distributed oceanographic data in coastal regions around the world.
Researchers question whether Gulf of Alaska species will return to pre–heat wave conditions.
In a study of more than 200 sea turtles, researchers were surprised by six turtles that went their own way.
Although warming oceans may make population booms and mass strandings more common, the species may ultimately be one of the beneficiaries of climate change.
Using observations from crowdsourced science and weather location data, researchers concluded that wildfires caused a mass die-off of birds in the western and central United States in 2020.
The excrement delivers nutrients like phosphorus and nitrogen, kick-starting islands of vegetation at the edge of the cryosphere.
