Heat waves can happen in the depths, invisible at the ocean surface.
Heat Waves: A Growing Threat to Society and the Environment
With heat waves expected to worsen in the 21st century it is essential to take stock of our current understanding, knowledge gaps, and to set research priorities.
In the Pacific Northwest, 2021 Was the Hottest Year in a Millennium
A 1,000-year temperature record shows unprecedented warming in the Pacific Northwest, and new modeling predicts the likelihood of future heat waves in the decades to come.
Exoplanets May Support Life in the Terminator Zone
A new study finds that the intersection between a searing dayside and a freezing nightside could be habitable.
Climate Change Knocks It Out of the Park
A climate curve ball: Short-term gains in home runs might soon give way to long-term problems when it gets too hot to play.
Hypoxia Affects One in Eight Rivers Worldwide
A global study found dangerously low levels of dissolved oxygen in rivers around the world. The true prevalence of hypoxia is probably even higher.
As the Arctic Warms, These Rivers Are Slowing Down
The Arctic is warming up, but instead of large rivers migrating faster, they’re actually slowing down because of shrubification.
El hierro está en el centro de este debate de las ciencias de la Tierra
Un nuevo estudio investiga el estado del hierro en el interior del planeta. Los hallazgos tienen repercusiones para comprender la estructura del núcleo interno.
COVID-19 Got You Feeling Under the Weather? Maybe Blame…the Weather
High humidity and low temperature altered COVID-19 spread in Brazil, but only slightly.
Non-Linear Climate Response to Tropical Sea Surface Temperatures
A new study shows the importance of considering non-linear responses to isolated sea surface temperature (SST) changes and the implications for the linear frameworks used to quantify the SST pattern effect.
