Unexpected New Mechanism Reveals How Molecules Become Trapped in Ice

JCP-Sibener-Ice-Chicago2.jpg

Expanding our knowledge of the way molecules interact with ice surfaces is a key goal not only for climate change but also a much wider range of other environmental, scientific and defense-related issues. Now, a team of researchers has discovered a new mechanism they call “stable energetic embedding” of atoms and molecules within ice. The work is described in The Journal of Chemical Physics.

October Blizzard in Midwest Not Attributable to Climate Change

cowwintergraze.jpg

When the October blizzard hit western South Dakota, neither man nor beast was prepared. Amid changing climate conditions, what can we expect this year? Using climate modeling techniques, scientists from South Dakota and Idaho found no consensus regarding whether the blizzard could be attributed to a changing climate. Their findings are part of an American Meteorological Society publication, Explaining Extreme Events of 2013 from a Climate Perspective.

Do We Have Time to Save Species from Climate Change?

Turtle1.jpg

Climate change is expected to result in heightened risk of extinction for many species. Because conservation scientists are just starting to understand this threat, many have concluded that current risk assessment protocols, such as the International 'Red List' published by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and based on rules established in the 1990s, will fail to identify many species at risk from climate change. However, an international team of researchers, including Professor Resit Akçakaya of Stony Brook University’s Department of Ecology and Evolution, counter that current assessment methods are able to identify such species. Their findings are published in the journal Global Change Biology.

Actions on Climate Change Bring Better Health, Study Says

The number of extremely hot days in Eastern and Midwestern U.S. cities is projected to triple by mid-century, according to a new study. In presenting their synthesis, the study authors seek to encourage efforts that benefit both the health of the planet and the health of people.
