A new primer lays out the basics of climate science in compact form.
A new study has identified thousands of incidents of previously rare or unprecedented extreme heat/humidity combinations in parts of Asia, Africa, Australia, South America and North America, including in the U.S. Gulf Coast region.
Driven by changing climate, a uniquely resilient organism is taking over the Arabian Sea, disrupting food chains, fisheries, oil refineries and water desalination plants.
The surprising finding suggests that future hurricanes stoked by warming climate may be even more destructive to forests than scientists have already projected.
Earth Institute researchers are in the field studying the dynamics of the planet on every continent and every ocean. Here is a list of projects.
For about 10 years, environmental law professor Karl Coplan has been trying to winnow down his direct footprint of CO2 emissions. He has been successful, and has just published a book chronicling his efforts.
Thousands more people could die from injuries each year as rising temperatures in the United States affect people’s behavior, says a new study.
I am back in Bangladesh once more to investigate the balance between sea level rise, the sinking of the land, and the filling of the space with sediments.
Taro Takahashi, a seagoing scientist who made key discoveries about carbon dioxide and the earth’s climate, has died. In a career spanning more than 60 years, he and his colleagues documented how the oceans both absorb and give off huge amounts of carbon dioxide, exchanging it with the atmosphere.
