Scientists core into California's Clear Lake to explore past climate change

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (2 years ago)

One of the oldest lakes in the world, Clear Lake in northern California has deep sediments that contain a record of the climate and local plants and animals going back perhaps 500,000 years. Scientists are drilling cores from the se... Read Post

‘unexpected link between solar activity and climate change’ found in Greenland ice

Academics / General Science : Watts Up With That? (2 days ago)

Lund University have published a reconstruction of solar activity vs snow accumulation in Greenland, which indicates a strong correlation between solar minima and a colder climate. ‘The study shows an unexpected link between solar a... Read Post

Minor variations in ice sheet size can trigger abrupt climate change

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (3 days ago)

Small fluctuations in the sizes of ice sheets during the last ice age were enough to trigger abrupt climate change, scientists have found. The team compared simulated model data with that retrieved from ice cores and marine sediment... Read Post
