Every two to seven years, an unusually warm pool of water develops across the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean to create a short-term climate change event. Known as El Niño, this event is now being studied as never before by NASA scientists.
It turns out that a mere 2 degrees Celsius of warming may lock in global sea level rise for thousands of years.
A warmer future with normal rainfall on California's coast may leave coastal redwoods with a significantly different climate.
The melting occurring in the Antarctic may be speeding up. Scientists have projected a doubling of surface melting of Antarctic ice shelves by 2050.
A researcher has found that the scenario presented in the climate disaster movie, The Day After Tomorrow, may actually be possible.
Global warming may be linked to increasing wildfires. Scientists have taken a closer look at the wildfire history in Colorado's mountains and have found that large fires will continue to increase in a warming climate.
New findings published in the Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology contradict previous findings showing that adult blue crabs are more tolerant of low oxygen, otherwise known as "hypoxic" conditions.
