The study explains how friction alters the velocity of glaciers. It could have important implications for improving sea level rise projections.
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.
In a new report, CIESIN researchers help to identify urban populations at risk from sea level rise. Their updated data set is meant to inform adaptation strategies.
Using drones, laser scanners, and high-resolution models, researchers hope to find out more about the processes driving rapid melting in this region.
Pierre Dutrieux, a Lamont-Doherty oceanographer and 2019 Climate and Life Fellow, discusses his Antarctic research and what the new IPCC report says about sea level rise.
How the Shinnecock Indian Nation Tribe in Long Island, NY, transformed a desolate and barren stretch of shoreline to protect their land from erosion and sea-level rise
In a coastal cave off Spain, scientists have found evidence showing that more than 3 million years ago, when temperatures were similar to those projected for the end of this century, sea levels were as much as 16 meters higher than they are now.
The acquisition of Four Twenty Seven, a leading provider of insight on economic climate risk, stands out as an indicator that the climate crisis is seen as a material risk that corporations and governments must consider.
Hundreds of experts gathered on campus to discuss possibilities for protecting coastal communities and withdrawing when we can no longer safely inhabit our coastlines.
