With the rise in atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon’s role in ocean chemistry and biology is being augmented. New tracking and modeling techniques help to reveal how a changing atmosphere may impact the oceans. Carbon plays a leading role in ocean chemistry and biology, a role currently augmented by rising atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2). Tracking the … Read More

Pacific Walrus and Coastal Alaska Native Subsistence Hunting: Considering Vulnerabilities from Ocean Acidification
Ocean acidification linked to climate change is rapidly changing Pacific walrus habitat and population, which in turn is impacting Alaska Native people dependent on the animals for food and cultural identity.
STEP M: Space to Effectively Prepare for Migration
Countries can follow STEP M in parallel, which will provide advice on how to obtain, integrate and operate space data within their adaptation plan for climate change and possible migration. Introduction Climate change will increasingly impact the Earth’s natural environment in many ways, such as more frequent natural disasters, heat waves, melting polar ice, and rising sea levels. Many of … Read More
Leatherback Sea Turtles
The issues treated throughout the investigation root from the eminent danger of global warming, and analyses of several aspects of it, such as the loss of the polar ice caps, coastline erosion, and the changes in precipitation indexes. Then, the project focuses on the consequences inflicted on leatherback sea turtles (Dermochelys Coriacea) by the major changes on their environment.
Biomass in the Sahel: A Satellite Approach for the Future
The project intends to analyze how the current biomass deficit in the region of the Sahel causes an increase in both global temperature and the amount of gases in the atmosphere. Satellite images and free movement research documents were used.
