Newswise: Air Bubbles Sound Climate Change's Impact on Glaciers #ASA181
23-Nov-2021 11:15 AM EST
Air Bubbles Sound Climate Change's Impact on Glaciers #ASA181
Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Air trapped with ice below glacier surfaces becomes a compressed bubble-ice mixture that builds pressure during the long passage to the glacier terminus. The glacier ice holds ancient bubbles of air that can be up to 20 atmospheres of pressure and generate detectable sounds when they are released as the ice melts. Scientists can listen to the release of the air and potentially use the sounds to help them gauge the impact of climate change on the ice floes.

Climate modeling confirms historical records showing rise in hurricane activity
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

When forecasting how storms may change in the future, it helps to know something about their past. Judging from historical records dating back to the 1850s, hurricanes in the North Atlantic have become more frequent over the last 150 years.

Killer Whales Lingering in Newly Melted Arctic Ocean #ASA181
Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Killer whales will often travel to different areas to target varieties of prey. In a study including eight years of passive acoustic data, researchers monitored killer whale movements using acoustic tools, finding killer whales are spending more time than previously recorded in the Arctic Ocean, despite risks of ice entrapment there. Their readings indicate this change is directly following the decrease in sea ice in the area.

Scientists Discover Link Between Climate Change and Biological Evolution of Phytoplankton
Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Using artificial intelligence techniques, an international team that included Rutgers-New Brunswick researchers have traced the evolution of coccolithophores, an ocean-dwelling phytoplankton group, over 2.8 million years. Their findings, published this week in the journal Nature, reveal new evidence that evolutionary cycles in a marine phytoplankton group are related to changes in tropical seasonality, shedding light on the link between biological evolution and climate change.

Newswise: Climate Change Increasingly a Bipartisan Issue in Florida

Climate Change Increasingly a Bipartisan Issue in Florida
Florida Atlantic University

Belief in climate change among Florida Republicans has climbed to nearly 9 out of 10 adults, apparently trending upwards, according to a new analysis of five sequenced surveys since 2019. The climate change issue may no longer be an effective campaign trail theme for the state’s party leaders as both parties gear up for the mid-term elections. Democrats register a higher belief rate (96 percent) than do residents affiliated with the GOP (88 percent), however, the latter group’s share appears more than sufficient for Republican lawmakers to feel that openly acknowledging the science of climate change will not erode their popular support.

University of California Team’s Research Suggests More Than 400 Hazardous Sites in California Face Flooding
UCLA Fielding School of Public Health

Unless climate change is slowed significantly, more than three feet of sea level rise (SLR) is expected in California by the end of the century, potentially flooding communities that are currently home to more than 145,000 residents. In addition to the threat to residential neighborhoods, new research suggests sea level rise will expose over 400 industrial facilities and contaminated sites in California, including power plants, refineries, and hazardous waste sites, to increased risk of flooding. Increased flooding can come with risks of contamination releases into nearby communities.
