KÆLTIA’s Team is really committed with the Global Climate Change, despite we would like to have a major impact and stop Global Warning, at least we can contribute with our personal contributions as well as summarising regularly Climate Change news in our Blog:
- Ocean warming and acidification will affect the structure and bioavailability of biomolecules. The toxic form of two neurotoxins will increase with climate change, presenting an ecotoxicology risk with global hotspots as exemplified by saxitoxin toxicity in Alaskan butter clam (by C. C. Roggatz via Nature Climate Change – Issue – nature.com science feed)
- The subnivium—the space between snowpack and the ground—is an insulating refuge from winter cold. This study predicts that climate warming decreases the subnivium’s seasonal duration yet increases snow-free days with frozen ground, making winter functionally colder for subnivium-dependent life (by Likai Zhuvia Nature Climate Change – Issue – nature.com science feed)
- Changes in springtime winds high above the South Pole are set to trigger higher than usual temperatures and fire-prone weather conditions in Australia, an international study involving Monash scientists has warned (via Earth News – Earth Science News, Earth Science, Climate Change)
- Researchers find global ocean methane emissions dominated by shallow coastal waters (by University of Rochester, via Earth News – Earth Science News, Earth Science, Climate Change)
- Predicting mortality in forests is challenging because its underlying causes are spatially varied and not well known. Reduced resilience detected from remotely sensed time series of vegetation dynamics can serve as an effective early warning signal to indicate the potential for forest mortality (by Yanlan Liuvia Nature Climate Change – Issue – nature.com science feed)
- Predicting coral bleaching is critical to better manage and preserve coral reefs from global warming. An impressive coordination of surveys across oceans now offers new metrics to help to predict coral bleaching events on a global scale (by Mathieu Pernicevia Nature Climate Change – Issue – nature.com science feed).
- An international group of agriculture and environmental scientists warn that the Chinese Government’s desire to relocate its pig industry from the South, in order to protect water quality could have unintended detrimental consequences, such as the transfer of pollution to new regions, where there are large areas of forest and fragile natural grasslands (by Bangor University, via Earth News – Earth Science News, Earth Science, Climate Change)
