The latest research news on Climate Change and the Environment

A recent reversal in the response of western Greenland’s ice caps to climate change

from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Greenland may be best known for its enormous continental scale ice sheet that soars up to 3,000 meters above sea level, whose rapid melting is a leading contributor to global sea level rise.

ITEP releases report examining effects of climate change on Indigenous peoples, lands and culture

from Northern Arizona University

As the climate changes and land, air and water are at risk, Native Americans, Alaska Natives and other Indigenous peoples are seeing their water sources dry up and their land disappear under rising sea levels. under attack from rising global temperatures. Researchers at the Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals brought together a diverse group of more than 100 authors to produce a first-of-its-kind report that provides an in-depth looks at what tribal nations are doing to protect against the climate crisis.

Insect protein has great potential to reduce the carbon footprint of European consumers

from University of Helsinki

Researchers at the University of Helsinki and LUT University, Finland, have analysed the extent to which insect protein could help to reduce global warming associated with food consumption in Europe.

Ida’s remnants struck idling cold front for historic deluge

from Cornell University

The historic and deadly Northeast deluge from Hurricane Ida on Sept. 1 was a result of a calamitous merger between the storm’s remnants and an idling cold front that rapidly turned water vapor into rainfall, according to researchers at Cornell’s NOAA Northeast Regional Climate Center.

Developing Digital Twins for Improved Hurricane Prediction

from Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences

UT’s Oden Institute will lead an interdisciplinary research project to develop a computational “digital twin” framework for storm surge modeling in the Gulf Coast that bridges the gap between multi-physics simulations and knowledge discovery through artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies.
