Birmingham Drought Experts Launch Pilot Project to Work with African Communities on Building Resilience

Experts at the University of Birmingham are launching an interdisciplinary project called CreativeDrought to prepare rural communities in Africa for possible future drought by combining local knowledge with environmental science.

Oceans Act as A "Heat Sink"

WP_20160620_20_20_26_Pro__highres.jpg

Study by three universities, NASA, NOAA and NCAR, points to the prominent role global ocean played in absorbing extra heat from the atmosphere by acting as a “heat sink” as an explanation for the observed decrease in a key indicator of climate change.

Boise State Study Shows Climate Affecting Avian Breeding

KestrelVole.jpg

Milder winters have led to earlier growing seasons and noticeable effects on the breeding habits of some predatory birds. This study looks at kestrels that nested in both non-irrigated shrub and grasslands and those that nested in irrigated crops and pastures.

Weather the Storm: Improving Great Lakes Modeling

Winter12192012023_horizon.jpg

Water and atmospheric processes are inseparable. Now, there is a supercomputer model that couples climate and hydrodynamic factors for the Great Lakes region. The new model will be useful for climate predictions, habitat modeling for invasive species, oil spill mitigation and other environmental research.

Cement-4379.horiz.jpg

Cement manufacturing is among the most carbon-intensive industrial processes, but an international team of researchers has found that over time, the widely used building material reabsorbs much of the CO2 emitted when it was made.

Marine Microalgae, a New Sustainable Food and Fuel Source

Taken from the bottom of the marine food chain, microalgae may soon become a top-tier contender to combat global warming, climate change and food insecurity.

Study: Climate Change Could Outpace EPA Lake Protections

New research suggests that Lake Champlain may be more susceptible to damage from climate change than was previously understood—and that, therefore, the rules created by the EPA to protect the lake may be inadequate to prevent algae blooms and water quality problems as the region gets hotter and wetter.

Corals Survived Caribbean Climate Change

127037_web.jpg

Half of all coral species in the Caribbean went extinct between 1 and 2 million years ago, probably due to drastic environmental changes. Which ones survived? Scientists working at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) think one group of survivors, corals in the genus Orbicella, will continue to adapt to future climate changes because of their high genetic diversity.

Study Reveals Impacts of Climate Warming and Declining Sea Ice on Arctic Whale Migration

Declines in the Arctic sea ice are arguably the most dramatic evidence of the effects of current climate warming on ocean systems. While sea ice is perhaps the most defining habitat feature of Arctic whales, the relationship between Arctic whales and sea ice is still largely a mystery, and there is increasing concern over how these species will adapt to climate related changes in sea ice.

Moral Values Influence Level of Climate Change Action

Two moral values highly rated by liberals — compassion and fairness — influence willingness to make personal choices to mitigate climate change’s impact in the future, according to a new multidisciplinary study by Cornell University researchers. The findings also suggest that a moral value rated more highly by conservatives – purity – also appears to have a positive effect, though not as pronounced as compassion and fairness.

Collaborating on Climate

If co-teaching sounds like it could lead to some conflicts, you’re not wrong—especially when it comes to a charged topic like climate change. It’s part of the reason why it’s rarely done in academia. But working through those disagreements, even in front of the class, is part of the point.
