The report shows that every degree of warming matters for livelihoods in most communities.
A small team of scientists ventures out onto the Greenland ice sheet to study the forces large and small that are accelerating the melting of the world’s second-largest ice mass.
As climate warms, the Greenland ice sheet is melting, helping to fuel global sea-level rise. Follow a small team of scientists as they hike onto the sheet to investigate the forces large and small that are demolishing the ice.
A lot is different from my first visit to the park back in 2016 versus now.
Ladakh’s glaciers are retreating, causing floods and threatening livelihoods. But a recent study reveals that disaster risk reduction is often slow or absent due to its status as a conflict and military-tense zone.
Ever wonder how thousands of scientists come together to author the world’s most authoritative report on climate change? A lead author brings us inside one working group.
In the high Andes of Peru, glacial retreat poses a complex set of challenges related to water supply.
When glacial lakes burst, the sudden and intense flooding can be catastrophic for nearby communities. A new study looks at what role climate change plays in these events.
