Climate records stored in marine sediments reveal different ice sheet and ocean responses to falling atmospheric CO2 concentrations from the warm Pliocene to the ice ages of the Pleistocene.
Ocean Drilling Program cores and helium isotopes put better constraints on the ocean circulation in the north Pacific.
Bhattacharya et al. present evidence that expansion of the North American Monsoon explains a wetter southwest in the mid-Pliocene and suggest this mechanism can explain current monsoon variations.
As a young Latina, Pérez-Ángel brings a fresh perspective to paleoclimatology.
The Siberian river’s creation caused a massive influx of fresh water into the Kara Sea and radically changed the Arctic Ocean and Earth’s climate.
Findings on the river’s age also have implications for past landscape change in Asia.
A new study confirms that an important wind system is shifting due to climate change.
Largely spared from disruptive tectonic activity, the South African coastline offers a natural setting to study sea levels from when Earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide last reached today’s levels.
New, high-resolution paleoclimate reconstructions with 100,000-year rhythms may offer insights into how Earth’s climate system operated during a time when the planet was warmer than it is today.
Preliminary results from a recent study may begin to shed light on why megalodons died out before the most recent ice age.
