A scientist who has played a key role in documenting modern sea level rise and its causes is to receive the 2020 Vetlesen Prize for achievement in the earth sciences.
A study finds that ozone-depleting substances caused about a third of all global warming from 1955 to 2005, and half of Arctic warming and sea ice loss during that period.
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.

Céline will stay on a few more days, then Hasnat with Saif and Nahin will continue until all the monuments are resurveyed.
We continued our GPS surveys of monuments to measure land subsidence. While the work general went very well, we faced challenges from obscured or tilted monuments. We also struggled with large traffic delays, particularly at unpredictable ferry crossings.
Leading researchers design formal wear with a scientific edge
Getting to remote sites started to prove challenging, and involved many forms of transportation by land and water.
A new study uncovers a previously undocumented relationship between erosion and wind speed.
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.
