A new climate adaptation strategy, produced by a partnership of federal, state, and tribal agencies in response to a call to action by Congress, outlines goals and steps that managers, decision-makers, and private land owners can take to reduce the current and expected impacts of climate change on fish, wildlife, plants, and ecosystems ov
Warming in recent decades, coupled with natural climate variations, has intensified the summer monsoon system across Asia, West Africa, and North America, according to a recent paper in PNAS.
Over the course of the 20th century, global warming led to a doubling of Katrina-magnitude storm-surge events, and for every 1.8 degree F increase in global temperatures in the future, the frequency of Katrina-magnitude events in the Atlantic Ocean could increase by three to four times.
The annual range of precipitation has increased across the globe, mostly due to the fact that wet seasons have become wetter, according to a new study published in Nature Geoscience.
By the year 2100, surface temperatures will exceed those of the Holocene (the past about 11,300 years), according to new research published in Science.
Increasing temperatures may lead to an earlier spring bloom in the U.S. by as much as several weeks, according to a new study in Geophysical Research Letters based on data from the USA National Phenology Network and model simulations.
Superstorm Sandy may have been influenced by Arctic sea ice loss caused by human-induced climate changes, according to an article in Oceanography.
The capacity of an individual to safely perform sustained labor under heat stress (labor capacity) has already decreased by 10 percent globally over the past few decades, and is predicted to decrease by another 10 percent by 2050 due to increasing temperatures and humidity.
Dust from the Sahara desert and Asia influences precipitation in the Sierra Nevada of California, precipitation that the region counts on for its water supply, according to a new study published in Science.
Water systems in the Southwest are among the most vulnerable to future climatic and socio-economic changes, according to a recent study by the U.S. Forest Service in collaboration with researchers at Colorado State University and Princeton University.
