Reframing Antarctica’s Meltwater Pond Dangers to Ice Shelves and Sea Level
Georgia Institute of Technology

Meltwater ponds riddle a kilometer-thick ice shelf, which then shatters in just weeks, shocking scientists and speeding the flow of the glacier behind it into the ocean to drive up sea level. A new study puts damage by meltwater ponds to ice shelves and sea level into cool, mathematical perspective.

Ancient Molecules from the Sea Burst Into the Air From Ocean Waves
Stony Brook University

When waves crash in the ocean, they inject tiny particles into the air that carry organic molecules more than 5,000 years old. This discovery, published in Science Advances by a national team of scientists, helps to solve a long-standing mystery as to what happens to ancient marine molecules.

Using 'green' approach to manage stormwater runoff
South Dakota State University

Soil and plants, strategically placed, can help reduce stormwater runoff—and, in the long run, help relieve pressure on the city drainage system. However, engaging city officials and community members is integral to implementing these techniques.

Assessing the benefits and risks of land-based greenhouse gas removal
International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis

A new study shows that afforestation and other forms of climate-friendly land use not only helps to remove CO2 from the atmosphere to reduce global warming, but they can also contribute to achieving the SDGs.

3-D Printed Coral Could Help Endangered Reefs
University of Delaware

Threats to coral reefs are everywhere—rising water temperatures, ocean acidification, coral bleaching, fishing and other human activities. But new research from the University of Delaware shows that 3-D printed coral can provide a structural starter kit for reef organisms and can become part of the landscape as fish and coral build their homes around the artificial coral.

Narcotics Traffic Devastating Central American Rainforests, Fueling Climate Change
Texas State University

Drug trafficking and, paradoxically, efforts to slow it are rapidly driving the deforestation in Central America's most vulnerable tropical rainforests, new research conducted in part by Texas State University reveals.
