A new study finds that as air circulation patterns change with the climate, coastal states could get hit with stronger hurricanes.

Some solutions are over 100 times cheaper than others, costing as little as $1 per person.
In an unusual new study, scientists say they have detected a growing fingerprint of human-driven global warming on global drought conditions starting as far back as 1900.
A new study suggests bacteria may respire more carbon dioxide from the shallow oceans to the air as seas warm, reducing the deep oceans’ ability to store carbon.
The new findings offer clues about how the solar system formed and how rocky planets change over time.
In a new study, scientists use urine salts to reconstruct the timing and scale of the Neolithic revolution at a Turkish archaeological site.
A million years ago, a longtime pattern of alternating glaciations and warm periods dramatically changed, when ice ages suddenly became longer and more intense. Scientists have long suspected that this was connected to the slowdown of a key Atlantic Ocean current system that today once again is slowing. A new study of sediments from the Atlantic bottom directly links this slowdown with a massive buildup of carbon dragged from the air into the abyss.
The report details how to translate climate science into local action.
Biodiversity could suffer as result, and more carbon could be added to the atmosphere.
Led by Lamont-Doherty researchers, a new study is the first to measure the time lags between changing ocean currents and major climate shifts.
