East Greenland ice sheet has responded to climate change for the last 7.5 million years

Dec. 7, 2016 -  
Using marine sediment cores containing isotopes of aluminum and beryllium, a group of international researchers has discovered that East Greenland experienced deep, ongoing glacial erosion over the past 7.5 million years. The research reconstructs ice sheet erosion dynamics in that region during...

New measurements of oceanic organic matter help scientists in understanding of climate

Nov. 16, 2016 -  
Researchers have found that new measurements of the size, age and composition of organic matter in the Pacific Ocean affects short-term and long-term climate impacts. The findings could have implications for climate in terms of how long organic matter is stored in the ocean before being converted...

Livermore Lab scientists show salinity matters when it comes to sea level changes

Nov. 20, 2014 -  
LIVERMORE, California -- Using ocean observations and a large suite of climate models, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists have found that long-term salinity changes have a stronger influence on regional sea level changes than previously thought. “By using long-term observed estimates...
