To help predict the future of sea level rise, scientists are studying ancient corals on the island of Barbados.
Climate scientist Radley Horton is bringing the effects of sea level rise to decision-makers, and fostering discussions to help society confront climate change.
Findings from last year indicate that the Greenland Ice Sheet is perhaps not as stable as scientists had hoped.
Polar scientists Marco Tedesco and Robin Bell provide a primer on how climate change will impact our coastlines.
If coral reefs continue to degrade, waves on coastlines may substantially increase, leading to greater coastal erosion.
One of the most rapidly changing glaciers in the world shows us that once climate change triggers retreat, glacial mechanics can make melting a whole lot worse.
Plus: Why they matter for climate change.
A new proposal suggests building underwater walls to protect glaciers from warm water. Here’s how it might work.
