We may never know exactly when the next big quake will hit – but we can have a pretty good idea of the odds.
Rocks deposited by vanishing glaciers in the Southern Alps thousands of years ago hold climate clues about the past, painting a bleak picture about the long-term survival of alpine ice in New Zealand.
A new modelling approach improves projections of Antarctica’s future ice loss. It shows a low-emissions scenario would avoid the collapse of West Antarctica’s ice sheet and limit sea-level rise.
Survey respondents who overestimated the amount and speed of sea-level rise were more likely to express greater concern. But concern is not always helpful in prompting action.
At the start of the cyclone season in the Pacific, weather forecasters are changing their warnings to focus less on weather information and more on the damage expected from an impending storm.
Waste-to-energy incinerators could help Australia deal with its mounting waste crisis, but burning rubbish may come with risks to public health.
Penelitian terbaru menunjukkan pemanasan lebih dari 2°C menjadi titik penting bagi lapisan es di Antarktika, yaitu pencairan es secara besar-besar dan perubahan garis pantai di masa mendatang.
New research shows that warming by more than 2°C could be a tipping point for Antarctica’s ice sheets, resulting in widespread meltdown and changes to the world’s shorelines for centuries to come.
Lord Howe Island is part of an underwater volcanic chain much older than first thought, with the possibility of new islands still to form.
