Columbia scientists recently visited the Caribbean island of Barbados, whose fossilized coral reefs contain an exquisite record of how the ocean has risen and fallen in the past.
To help predict the future of sea level rise, scientists are studying ancient corals on the island of Barbados.
A gradual shift in Earth’s orbit that repeats every 405,000 years plays a role in natural climate swings.
An international collaboration will study the wasting of the Thwaites glacier, which already accounts for around 4 percent of current global sea-level rise, and could collapse within decades or centuries.
A student shares her first-hand experience of the devastating storm, and discusses how New York City is building resilience—and how it could do better.
Coastal waters play an important role in the carbon cycle by absorbing carbon into sediments or transferring it to the open ocean, a new study confirms.
Two new papers find that the line that divides the moist East and arid West is edging eastward due to climate change—and the implications for farming and other pursuits could be huge.
