A new algorithm quickly sifts through hours of field recordings to learn how climate change influences bird migration. The A.I. could help track other wildlife as well.
Billions of people in thousands of cities around the world will soon be at risk from climate-related heat waves, droughts, flooding, food shortages and energy blackouts by mid-century, but many cities are already taking action to blunt such effects, says a new report from a consortium of international organizations.
Yutian Wu, an atmospheric scientist seeking to understand how the rapid decline of Arctic sea ice will impact North American weather extremes, is the Center’s newest Fellow.
Thousands of years ago, the West Antarctic ice sheet shrank dramatically—then grew back in an unexpected way.
A new model estimates how many climate migrants there will be, where they are likely to go, and what effects they might have on the places to which they move.
Artificial intelligence is helping us manage the impacts of climate change and protect the environment in many ways.
Sunny California may be getting too sunny. Increasing summer temperatures brought on by a combination of intensifying urbanization and warming climate are driving off once-common morning cloud cover in southern coastal areas of the state, leading to increased risk of wildfires.
Intensifying river floods caused by global warming may hamper national economies worldwide, and effects might propagate through global trade and supply networks, a new study says.
