Copernicus Sentinel-3B delivers first images
Copernicus Sentinel-3B delivers first images
Less than two weeks after it was launched, the Copernicus Sentinel-3B satellite has delivered its first images of Earth. Exceeding expectations, this first set of images include the sunset over Antarctica, sea ice in the Arctic and a view of northern Europe. The very first image, captured on 7 May at 10:33 GMT (12:33 CEST), shows the transition between day and night over the Weddell Sea in Antarctica.

Global tourism carbon footprint quantified in world first
Tourism has been revealed to be responsible for almost a tenth of greenhouse gas emissions, with flights a major component. The paper highlights a gap in the Paris climate agreement, which does not include aviation. We found the footprint increases strongly with increased affluence and does not appear to satiate as incomes grow.

Maintaining valuable soils
Each year almost one thousand hectares of cultivated land continue to be lost, thereby wiping out numerous services delivered by the soil, such as filtering water and storing carbon, which are central for our society's wellbeing. The National Research Programme "Sustainable Use of Soil as a Resource" (NRP 68) is suggesting ways in which spatial planning can be structured so that this loss remains as small as possible.

CryoSat reveals retreat of Patagonian glaciers
While ESA's CryoSat continues to provide clear insight into how much sea ice is being lost and how the Antarctic and Greenlandic ice sheets are changing, the mission has again surpassed its original scope by revealing exactly how mountain glaciers are also succumbing to change. Glaciers all over the globe are retreating - and for the last 15 years, glacial ice has been the main cause of sea-level rise.

Imminent forest collapse threatens Melbourne’s water supply
Wildfires and over-logging have tipped the Mountain Ash forest very close to collapse - populations of animals living there have halved, and in some cases have declined by more than 65 per cent during the past 20 years. A landmark study from ANU has found that a vital forest in Victoria faces imminent collapse, which poses a major threat Melbourne's water supply.

Did last ice age affect breast feeding in Native Americans?
Did last ice age affect breast feeding in Native Americans?
The critical role that breast feeding plays in infant survival may have led, during the last ice age, to a common genetic mutation in East Asians and Native Americans that also, surprisingly, affects the shape of their teeth. The genetic mutation, which probably arose 20,000 years ago, increases the branching density of mammary ducts in the breasts, potentially providing more fat and vitamin D to infants living in the far north where the scarcity of ultraviolet radiation makes it difficult to produce vitamin D in the skin.
