Antarctic ice sheet could suffer a one-two climate punch

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Variations in the axial tilt of the Earth have significant implications for the rise and fall of the Antarctic Ice Sheet, the miles-deep blanket of ice that locks up huge volumes of water that, if melted, would dramatically elevate sea level and alter the world’s coastlines. New research matches the geologic record of Antarctica’s ice with the periodic astronomical motions of the Earth.

New study first to predict which oil and gas wells are leaking methane

University of Vermont

A new study in Environmental Geosciences is the first to predict, with up to 87% accuracy, which oil and natural wells are most likely to be leaking methane. Research published in Science estimated that natural gas wells are leaking 60% more methane than the EPA estimates.
