A new study revelealed that earlier snowmelts that aligns with the colder periods of the seasonal temperatures cycle are reducing the ability of trees in subalpine forests to take and store atmospheric carbon dioxide.
Moose and snowshoe hares have taken a liking to the increased shrubery growth along Alaska's North Slope.
Climate change, land use and population growth are threatening the availability of water sources in the Himalaya Mountain basins.
California's Sierra Nevada snowpack is lower than it has ever been in the past 500 years – a result of the region's three-year long drought, which doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon, say researchers.
Researchers examined various snowpacks in the Sierra Nevada region in order to get a better understanding of how climate change is affecting subsurface water content levels.
Experts from NASA and the University of Washington (UW) have recently determined with certainty that the Arctic is losing its snow depth at an alarming rate, especially on its sea ice.
NASA will be taking a deep look at ice-melt near the polar Arctic in future summers, measuring thinning ice and snow-melt with pulses of green laser light.
