Newly documented population of polar bears in Southeast Greenland sheds light on the species’ future in a warming Arctic
Scientists have documented a previously unknown subpopulation of polar bears living in Southeast Greenland. The polar bears survive with limited access to sea ice by hunting from freshwater ice that pours into the ocean from Greenland's glaciers. Because this isolated population is genetically distinct and uniquely adapted to its environment, studying it could shed light on the future of the species in a warming Arctic.

Estuaries’ vast potential for climate mitigation
The salt marshes, mud flats and eel grass meadows of temperate river estuaries are more effective at capturing and storing greenhouse gases than young coastal forests and may sequester carbon for centuries, if not millennia, according to researchers from the University of Victoria (UVic). The amount of carbon captured and stored, known as sequestered, by the Cowichan estuary on Vancouver Island is roughly double that of an actively growing 20-year-old Pacific Northwest forest of the same area, reports a new study published in the journal Frontiers in Marine Science .

Model pinpoints glaciers at risk of collapse due to climate change
A 2005 photo of a glacier on the southeastern coast of Greenland. Where it terminates in the ocean it is calving icebergs. A new UC Berkeley study shows that thick and fast-flowing glaciers are most vulnerable to sudden speed up and collapse into the ocean because of basal lubrication by meltwater produced by a warming climate.

Unchecked global emissions on track to initiate mass extinction of marine life
As greenhouse gas emissions continue to warm the world's oceans, marine biodiversity could be on track to plummet within the next few centuries to levels not seen since the extinction of the dinosaurs, according to research from the University of Washington and Princeton University. Oceanographers modeled future marine biodiversity under different projected climate scenarios.

Ice shards in Antarctic clouds let more solar energy reach Earth’s surface
Clouds come in myriad shapes, sizes and types, which control their effects on climate. New research led by the University of Washington shows that splintering of frozen liquid droplets to form ice shards inside Southern Ocean clouds dramatically affects the clouds- ability to reflect sunlight back to space.

UC Berkeley drills 400-foot borehole to explore geothermal heating
Early this past Monday morning, a small team of University of California, Berkeley, engineers gathered around a two-story-tall drilling rig parked at an out-of-the-way spot on the north side of campus. As the overnight rain turned to drizzle, the team watched as a drilling crew used a massive 8-inch-wide drill bit to start punching a new borehole in the soil.
