DeepMIP Kickoff Meeting; Boulder, Colorado, 14–15 January 2016
First results of the Last Millennium Climate Reanalysis Project demonstrate the potential of the method to improve historical climate estimates by linking proxy data with climate models.
New research finds that Earth had sufficient oxygen 1.4 billion years ago for animals to evolve. Therefore, low oxygen levels probably didn't hold back evolution, as scientists have long thought.
Soil moisture estimates, inferred from thousands of tree rings spanning the past 12 centuries, highlight the severity of the recent record-breaking drought.
Florida’s sediment record reveals surprising new information about the frequency of large hurricanes hitting the state.
In a study with implications for geoengineering, large Northern Hemispheric volcanic eruptions are found to cause strong droughts in much of eastern China.
To better prepare people for future floods, scientists need to dig deep into the past to capture a wide spectrum of both flood and natural climate variability.
