With the onset of COVID-19, it has now become customary to screen body temperature before entering restaurants or buildings. This is because even 1 °C increase in body temperature is considered dangerous to one's health. Then what if the Earth's temperature rises by 1 °C or 2 °C? For the first time, a POSTECH research team has quantified the length of summer as the Earth's temperature rises.
It's been becoming more and more clear that global warming means more than just warmer temperatures. Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and more intense in many different parts of the world, creating an urgent need to predict and prepare for these changes.
The evolution of our Earth is the story of its cooling: 4.5 billion years ago, extreme temperatures prevailed on the surface of the young Earth, and it was covered by a deep ocean of magma.
Researchers in Ireland and Japan have highlighted the importance of preserving biodiversity in the wake of a globally warming climate.
The Arabian Peninsula is one of the world’s driest places, hence understanding how climate change may alter local rainfall patterns is critical. According to data comparisons, changes in winter rainfall over the peninsula throughout the 1980s have now been connected to an ocean-atmospheric phenomenon affecting sea surface temperatures in the central Pacific and westerly jet streams arriving from North Africa.
The world's oceans are hotter than ever before, continuing their record-breaking temperature streak for the sixth straight year.
Yara Marine Technologies is now accepting applications for the second edition of its 3-month tailored startup accelerator program, Yara Marine X. The program offers selected companies a unique opportunity to develop and pilot their innovative solutions while supported by direct access to Yara Marine’s industry competence, network distribution and knowledge scale.
Scientists investigating coral reefs damaged by the rise in sea temperatures have found an unanticipated ‘bright spot’ of hope for coastal communities that rely upon them for food security.
Scientists at CAS have demonstrated that increased temperatures in shallow lakes induce a shift from clear water conditions dominated by macrophytes to turbid conditions.
In the past 30 years, the frequency of thunderstorms in some rapidly-growing African coastal cities has doubled, with a huge portion of this increase connected to the impact of deforestation on the local climate, a new study has discovered.
