Researchers reported Thursday that natural oscillations in the climate, which resulted in cooler Pacific Ocean waters, were partially behind the controversial global warming "pause."
New research reveals that millions of tons of Saharan dust, which is actually rich in vital nutrients such as phosphorus, helps to fertilize the lush Amazon rainforest each year.
Warm Atlantic Ocean waters are causing sea ice to melt in the Arctic, further contributing to the disappearance of this land mass, according to new research.
The Atlantic Ocean's circulation, which is an important driver of precipitation and climate, is showing signs that it will soon collapse, indicating that abrupt climate change may not be so far away.
Many theories have been suggested to explain why the Earth is currently in a global warming hiatus, from volcanoes to air pollution to sunspots. But new research indicates that this missing heat is trapped deep in the Atlantic Ocean.
Rapid warming of the Atlantic Ocean, likely caused by global warming, has turbocharged Pacific Equatorial trade winds to a level never-before-seen, according to new research.
Decades ago gray seals nearly went extinct in New England waters, but now they are finally starting to make a comeback - so much so that some people are calling for controlled hunts in the area, according to reports.
