Latest research explores how a warming ocean circulates underneath Antarctica's floating ice shelves and how this contributes to future sea level rise.

How sea water circulation underneath Antarctic ice shelves is a vital missing link in climate change projections.
The review examined hundreds of studies and concluded the lower Murray should remain a freshwater ecosystem, or severe environmental and economic damage will result.

A new study suggests raising dykes along a third of Europe's coastline, but there are more cost-effective options.
The findings point to how Australia's most important river system might be altered by future sea level rise.
A new study has reported the world will lose almost half of its valuable sandy beaches by 2100 as sea levels rise. But cutting our emissions could keep some intact.

Bangladesh is on the front lines of climate change, but factors including money, gender and religion make some Bangladeshis much more vulnerable than others. Can it find inclusive ways to cope?

In this October 2011 photo, members of the Royal New Zealand defense force pump sea water into holding tanks ready to be used by the desalination plant in Funafuti, Tuvalu, South Pacific. The atolls of Tuvalu are at grave risk due to rising sea levels and contaminated ground water.

A recent ruling by the UN's Human Rights Committee recognized that climate refugees do exist, and acknowledged a legal basis for protecting them when their lives are threatened by climate change.
Without a radical change of course on climate change, Australians will struggle to survive on this continent, let alone thrive.
For decades Australian scientists have, clearly and respectfully, warned about the risks to Australia of a rapidly heating climate. After this season's fires, perhaps it's time to listen.
If coffee and wine are things you love, then you need to pay attention to climate change.
People tend to pay attention when things get personal, so you need to know how climate change is damaging things in your life.

Global heating could reduce mountain glacier snow and ice by up to 80% by 2100, threatening major drinking water supplies.
Indonesia will face new challenges as current released IPCC reported states that oceans and cryosphere are melting in accelerated rate.
Climate change is causing oceans to become warmer and more acidic and to lose oxygen. Indonesian waters are not immune to these impacts.
As sea levels rise, it becomes easier for ocean waves to spill further onto land.
For every ten centimetres of sea level rise, the chances of a 100-year coastal flood increase three-fold. This means we'll have to build flood defenses or retreat from the coast.

Antarctica is no longer the sleeping giant of sea level rise. New research delved into the past and found when the Earth warms, its ice sheets can melt extremely quickly.
Land clearing, cattle populations and carbon emissions stand alongside temperature as important measures of climate change.
What if the nightly news had regular updates on forest clearing, ocean temperatures and fossil fuel consumption? These indicators sit alongside temperatures as signs of climate change.
Indonesian residents wade through flood water near the Ciliwung river in Jakarta in February 2018. Our emissions in the near future will lock in sea level rise over centuries.
New research confirms that what the world pumps into the atmosphere today has grave long-term consequences. Governments - especially Australia's - must urgently ramp up efforts to reduce emissions.
A woman cries inside her flooded house in Huarmay, a coastal region of Peru, which in 2017 saw its worst flooding in 20 years.
Hundreds of millions more people will now be at risk from rising seas in the coming decades - with Asia and island nations most vulnerable. How we react to the climate crisis is now even more crucial.
