Tropical mountain regions in Ecuador face significant impacts from climate change. Over the past two hundred years, vegetation on the Chimborazo volcano in Ecuador has migrated over 500 meters upslope.
Scientists recently mapped the development of one of the world's largest consolidated piles of dust and erosion--China's vast Loess Plateau. In doing so, they studied both wind-related geology change and climate change.
No, I'm not talking about 200 years from present day. But new research has shown evidence of a 200-year lag between climate events in Greenland and Antarctica during the last ice age, and it could possibly help shed light on the consequences of climate change in the future.
