UNH Researchers Find Effects of Climate Change Could Accelerate By Mid-Century

Environmental models are showing that the effects of climate change could be much stronger by the middle of the 21st century. If carbon dioxide emissions continue at the current rate, scenarios point to a significant decrease in snow days, and an increase in the number of summer days over 90 degrees.

Eruption Clues: UNH Researchers Create Snapshot of Volcano Plumbing

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire are using scientific sleuthing to better understand the journey of magma in Mount Etna, to create a more accurate picture of the volcano’s plumbing system and determine how quickly the magma rises to the top to cause an eruption. Their findings contribute to our understanding of how and when volcanoes erupt.

UNH Researchers Find Campus Sexual Violence Significantly Affects Academics

While much needed programs, and past studies, have predominately focused on the mental health effects of such violent acts on students, new research by the University of New Hampshire shows that aggressive sexual acts can also adversely impact school work and overall college experience.
