Concentrating on global environmental change over the past 50 to 12,000 years, Rob and his team collect samples from deep-sea corals and lake and ocean sediments and analyze their age, chemistry, and morphology for clues about air-sea interactions, tropical marine ecosystems and polar climate
Canadian scientists are providing input to policy development, and a $5M, 5-year Polar Climate
Stability Network initiative supported by the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Science will assemble the team needed to make meaningful predictions of the impact of global change in Canada as a whole, with emphasis on high latitudes.
The ice's longevity, the group says, supports the idea of a polar climate
persisting in Antarctica right through the Pliocene.
Contrary to all older glacial episodes in earth history, the most recent development of cold polar climate
was bipolar because of the peculiar Cenozoic plate tectonic subdivision of Earth's crust into relatively small ocean basins and continents.
These are the thickest rings ever found in a polar climate
The South Sandwich Islands are beautiful, yet they possess a severe maritime polar climate
London, September 11 (ANI): If engineers have their way, Earth's polar regions would soon have watchmen, in the form of 'sailing' spacecrafts poised above the planet, relaying vital data on polar climate
change or solar storms.
However we still remain remarkably ignorant of many aspects of how polar climate
operates and its interaction with polar environments, ecosystems and societies.
The primary purpose of the satellite is to record ice sheet elevation changes, examine relationships between observed ice changes and polar climate
and improve estimates of their contributions to global sea level rise.
A MULTI-DECADAL POLAR CLIMATE
RECORD FROM RADAR SCATTEROMETER DATA: THE SCATTEROMETER CLIMATE RECORD PATHFINDER PROJECT TIME: Tues.
Much of the rocky coastal strata of Dinosaur Cove in southern Victoria were formed in river valleys in a polar climate
during the Early Cretaceous.
One of them is Point Hope, where the 800-strong population endure a polar climate
, pitch dark winters and 24-hour daylight in summer.
