The bacterial metabollites are a major contributor in storing carbon in the ocean for long periods of time that plays an underestimated role for our climate.
The formation of the continental crust not only changed the ocean circulation, location of the marine species but had a powerful impact on the climate on the planet.
The eruption of Tambora dropped global average temperature and this kind of eruption today would cause major effects such as the atmospheric circulation around the globe.
A stable reservoir of abiotic methane was discovered in the frozen water of Arctic Ocean which would likely impact Climate if released to the atmosphere.
Despite record cold spells last winter, 2015 may become the warmest year in the instrumental record.
The study reports that ecosystems recovery can take thousand of years which gives an information how to manage ecosystem in a rapidly changing climate.
Drought causes damage to the vascular system of the tree that transports water leading to tree mortality.
Winter warming permitted mountain pine beetle outbreaks and warmer regions sustain and increase impacts from beetles.
Larval development starts in the open ocean making them vulnerable to predators and faster growth help them to survive but might not likely to happen due to warming.
Methane and carbon dioxide had been known as sources of greenhouse emissions but little is known about the sources and rates of methane production.
The new maps gives vital information not only for research but for planning and decision making purposes.
Volcanic eruptions cool the atmosphere for two to three years yet change the ocean circulation which affects the climate in Europe for more than 20 years.
Reduction in both quantity and quality will greatly reduced emissions and researchers are planning to expose their results transparently for the policymakers.
The smaller, non-sinking dead phytoplanktons sink into the deep ocean transported downward by currents on the edges of eddies.
The global warming target of 2°C carries an increased risk of sea level rise and extreme weather events and a low temperature target is a best bet.
Researchers will look for connections in the rapid decline of the ice volume and its effect to the atmosphere and ocean.
