The average oxygen concentration in the world's ocean has decreased by more than two percent over the last 50 years.
With climate change most associated with warming temperatures, scientists and the public alike tend to focus on the dangers of extreme weather such as heat waves, which is increasingly becoming the new norm. However, new research reveals that simple cold weather is more deadly than extremely hot days.
Ocean microbes may play an important role beneath the surface, but now new research shows that they are linked to processes in the atmosphere as well, and may even directly impact climate change.
Well, not yet, but that is the direction that scientists are headed. "Cloudy for the morning, turning to clear with scorching heat in the afternoon," may soon apply not just to typical late-summer days on Earth, but also to planets located outside our solar system, according to a new study.
One of Antarctica's largest ice shelves is thinning from above and below, helping scientists finally understand just what exactly is causing this rapid ice melt, according to new research.
It's no secret that climate change is wreaking havoc on our world's oceans, and now new research has shown that it can take marine life millennia to recover from climate change-related upheavals.
New research has found evidence of a positive feedback mechanism brought on by climate change in which global warming itself may intensify a rise in greenhouse gases, resulting in additional warming.
Previous research has suggested that climate change brings heat waves and cold snaps along with it, but a new study has come to a different conclusion.
Over the last 40 years, the number of heat waves that occur in urban areas worldwide have been steadily rising, these sweltering temperatures more prominent in recent years, according to new research.
As scientists continue to monitor the Arctic for changes in the face of climate change, they recently discovered some staggering new information - temperatures in the region are rising twice as fast as anywhere else on Earth, a new NOAA-led report says.
As climate change causes winters to warm, the world becomes more and more like a tropical paradise, possibly meaning the end of the seasons as we know them, according to new research.
