Sandy’s Surge Topped by ‘Rogue’ 1950 Storm in Some Areas

March_2014_noreaster_2014-03-26300.jpg

In November 1950, a freak storm spawned a record storm surge in Atlantic City and a near-record surge at Sandy Hook. Rutgers scientists are studying weather systems known as extratropical cyclones or nontropical storms, and the storm surges they have generated along the northern East Coast.

Caspian Terns Discovered Nesting 1,000 Miles Farther to the North Than Ever Recorded in Alaska

WCS_CaspianTernChick_.l.jpg

WCS reported today that in the late summer of 2016, a WCS field team led by Dr. Trevor Haynes monitored Caspian tern chicks through to fledging in Cape Krusenstern National Monument in Alaska. This discovery of Caspian terns breeding above the Arctic Circle in the Chukchi Sea is nearly 1,000 miles farther north than previously recorded – a strikingly large jump in the range of nesting for this (or any) species.

Soil Will Absorb Less Atmospheric Carbon Than Expected This Century, UCI-Led Study Finds

co2soil_01_sz.jpg

By adding highly accurate radiocarbon dating of soil to standard Earth system models, environmental scientists from the University of California, Irvine and other institutions have learned a dirty little secret: The ground will absorb far less atmospheric carbon dioxide this century than previously thought.

Different Tree Species Use the Same Genes to Adapt to Climate Change, Researchers Find

Large-scale analysis revealed that both pine and spruce use the same suite of 47 genes to adapt to geographic variation in temperature, and to appropriately time acquisition of cold hardiness – a trait that allows plants to tolerate the adverse conditions of winter.

Greenland Ice Is Melting 7 Percent Faster Than Previously Thought

The same hotspot in Earth’s mantle that feeds Iceland’s active volcanoes has been affecting scientists' calculations of ice loss in the Greenland ice sheet, causing them to underestimate the melting by about 20 gigatons (20 billion metric tons) per year.

Climate Change Means Land Use Will Need to Change to Keep Up with Global Food Demand, Say Scientists

A team of researchers led by the University of Birmingham warns that without significant improvements in technology, global crop yields are likely to fall in the areas currently used for production of the world’s three major cereal crops, forcing production to move to new areas.
