Accelerating ice melt from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets will significantly impact sea level rise in the coming decades

Melting Ice Sheets the Largest Contributor to Sea Level Rise

A new study to be published this month in the journal Geophysical Research Letters has found that the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are losing mass at an accelerating rate. The rapidly accelerating ice melt from the ice sheets is happening much sooner the models have predicted. According to the research, the ice sheets are now overtaking the ice loss…

El Nino intensifies and drifts westward according to new research

El Niño More Intense Over Past Thirty Years, Causes and Impacts Unkown

Researchers from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have published a study (pdf) in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, showing how the El Niño weather phenomenon has doubled in intensity over the past 30 years while drifting westward. What the cause of these changes to are is uncertain, including whether man-made global warming…
