California is feeling the effects of climate change far and wide as heat-trapping greenhouse gases reduce spring runoff from the Sierra Nevada, make the waters of Monterey Bay more acidic and shorten winter chill periods required to grow fruit and nuts in the Central Valley, a new report says.
Scientists from UC Irvine and the National Center for Atmospheric Research have developed a new computer model to measure global warming’s effect on soil worldwide that accounts for how bacteria and fungi in soil control carbon.
They found that soil outcomes based on their microbial model were more reliable than those forecast by traditional models. Study results appear online in Nature Climate Change.
Professor Eric J. Rignot, has been elected as a 2013 AGU Fellow. Only one in a thousand members is elected to Fellowship each year. Your nominee’s election into this prestigious class of Fellows is an achievement.
The 2013 Fellows will be announced via the AGU Web site on 26 July as well as in the 30 July issue of Eos. Also, an official press release will also be available via the AGU Web site by 30 July.
A growing number of countries regulate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions occurring within their borders, but due to rapid growth in international trade, the products consumed in many of the same countries increasingly rely on coal, oil and gas extracted and burned in other countries where CO2 is not regulated. As a consequence, existing national and regional climate policies may be growing less effective every year. Furthermore, countries that are dependent on imported products or fossil fuels are more exposed to energy and climate policies in other countries.
A new study by ESS graduate student, Staryl McCabe-Glynn, ESS Professor, Kathleen Johnson, and colleagues provides the first high-resolution record of sea surface temperatures in the Kuroshio Extension region of the North Pacific Ocean. The group didn't venture off to sea to develop this record, but instead went underground to collect a stalagmite from Crystal Cave in California's Sequoia National Park!
LONDON – Just as rich nations have passed the responsibility for carbon dioxide emissions to the developing nations, so the rich provinces of China have exported the problem to the poorest regions, according to new research.
Findings are a game changer for future forecasts about thawing continent
Irvine, Calif. – Ocean waters melting the undersides of Antarctic ice shelves, not icebergs calving into the sea, are responsible for most of the continent’s ice loss, a study by UC Irvine and others has found.
Interior produces 80 percent of CO2 related to goods used in richer coastal areas
Irvine, Calif., June 10, 2013 - Just as wealthy nations like the United States are outsourcing their dangerous carbon dioxide emissions to China, rich coastal provinces in that country are outsourcing emissions to poorer provinces in the interior, according to UC Irvine climate change researcher Steve Davis and colleagues.
