Antarctic Peninsula hottest in three decades; rapid rate of ocean warming may be to blame, says study
Between January and August, temperatures reached between 2 and 3 degrees Celsius on the peninsula, according to researchers at the Chilean Air Force's Frei Base
Scientists develop new way to determine how fast the Indian Ocean is warming by analysing earthquake sounds
They used existing seismic monitoring equipment and historic data on earthquakes find out how much the temperature of the ocean has altered and continues changing.
The findings show that atmospheric warming is attacking ice shelves from above as well as warm ocean water at the surface.
The research could complement ongoing efforts to better manage fisheries and detect species shifts due to climate change with satellites.
Over the 6 decades past, recent warming was 450% that of earlier warming — a big increase in rate of climate change effects.
Extreme rainfall, droughts and heatwaves have hit Karnataka, Telangana, Chattisgarh, Odisha and the Northeast with increasing intensity and frequency.
Global warming: October 2019 might have been second-hottest month in the second-hottest year on record
The report comes after numerous similar studies of monthly global temperatures that show Earth's climate has warmed steadily.
The difference between 1.5°C and 2°C of heating is important for the poles, which warms faster than the global average.
Not convinced climate action is urgent? Here's what happens to Earth over 1.5 degrees Celsius of global heating
At 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming, we could expect to lose between 70 and 90 percent of our coral reefs.
The tropics in general and India must focus on the lack of long-term sustained Indian and Pacific ocean observations.
Warming oceans, melting glaciers have been 'taking the heat' from climate change for decades: IPCC Report
Experts highlighted that countries will either have to pay the cost of climate-related damages now, or invest in climate adaptation for the future.
IPCC Oceans and Cryosphere Report: Melting glaciers and natural disasters in Himalayas to become more frequent
Mitigating climate change and adapting to its effect in high mountains won't be easy, but it is the need of the hour.
IPCC Special Report on Oceans and Cryosphere releasing today: What to expect from UN's latest climate change assessment
The report looks at the effects of climate change on oceans and has been written by 104 scientists from all over the world.
Fish and coral have a codependent relationship, the fish rely on the reef to evade danger and lay eggs.
91 percent of the coral reef had been bleached at least once during three bleaching events of the past two decades
The insides of a particularly long-living genus of corals, Porites, led to the new finding.
Corals can recover if the water temperature drops and the algae are able to recolonise them.
An independent climate scientist spotted an error in the study's maths about the rate of warming.
Some experts think a collision of the iceberg with the Larson ice shelf is on the cards.
