Spreading like wildfire

  
Nature Climate Change, Vol. 7, No. 11. (November 2017), pp. 755-755, https://doi.org/10.1038/nclimate3432

Abstract

The 2017 wildfire season has seen unusually high fire levels in many parts of the world, with extensive and severe fires occurring in Chile, the Mediterranean, Russia, the US, Canada and even Greenland. Is this a sign of things to come? [Excerpt] During January and February, Chile experienced what their president Michelle Bachelet called “The greatest forest disaster in our history”. The nation was not adequately equipped to tackle these fires, leading the government to enact a state of emergency and accept ...

 

Terrestrial ecosystems, soil and forests

  
In Climate change, impacts and vulnerability in Europe 2016 - An indicator-based report, Vol. 1/2017 (January 2017), pp. 153-182, https://doi.org/10.2800/534806

Abstract

[Excerpt: Key messages] [::] Observed climate change has had many impacts on terrestrial ecosystems, such as changes in soil conditions, advances in phenological stages, altitudinal and latitudinal migration of plant and animal species (generally northwards and upwards), and changes in species interactions and species composition in communities, including local extinctions. [::] The relative importance of climate change as a major driver of biodiversity and ecosystem change is projected to increase further in the future. In addition to climate change, human efforts to mitigate and adapt to ...

Abstract

[Excerpt: Key messages] [::] All of the key findings from the 2012 European Environment Agency (EEA) report on climate change, impacts and vulnerability in Europe are still valid. [::] Climate change is continuing globally and in Europe. Land and sea temperatures are increasing; precipitation patterns are changing, generally making wet regions in Europe wetter, particularly in winter, and dry regions drier, particularly in summer; sea ice extent, glacier volume and snow cover are decreasing; sea levels are rising; and climate-related extremes such as heat waves, heavy precipitation ...

Re-evaluation of MODIS MCD43 Greenland albedo accuracy and trends

  
Remote Sensing of Environment, Vol. 138 (November 2013), pp. 199-214, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rse.2013.07.023
Keywords: accuracy   albedo   greenland   mcd43   modis   remote-sensing  

Abstract

[Highlights] [::] The MODIS 16-day snow albedo product is in general agreement with Greenland in situ data. [::] Analysis from 2000 to 2012 reveals negative trends leading to enhanced absorption of solar energy. [::] In 2012, albedo anomalies were more than two standard deviations below the 2000–2009 mean. [Abstract] In this study, the accuracy of the MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) combined Terra (MOD) and Aqua (MYD) 16-day albedo product (MCD43) is evaluated through comparisons with eleven years of in situ measurements at 17 automatic weather ...

Deeply incised submarine glacial valleys beneath the Greenland ice sheet

  
Nature Geosci, Vol. 7, No. 6. (18 June 2014), pp. 418-422, https://doi.org/10.1038/ngeo2167

Abstract

The bed topography beneath the Greenland ice sheet controls the flow of ice and its discharge into the ocean. Outlet glaciers move through a set of narrow valleys whose detailed geometry is poorly known, especially along the southern coasts1, 2, 3. As a result, the contribution of the Greenland ice sheet and its glaciers to sea-level change in the coming century is uncertain4. Here, we combine sparse ice-thickness data derived from airborne radar soundings with satellite-derived high-resolution ice motion data through ...

 

Climate change and forest fires synergistically drive widespread melt events of the Greenland Ice Sheet

  
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Vol. 111, No. 22. (3 May 2014), pp. 7964-7967, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1405397111

Abstract

[Significance] Through an examination of shallow ice cores covering a wide area of the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS), we show that the same mechanism drove two widespread melt events that occurred over 100 years apart, in 1889 and 2012. We found that black carbon from forest fires and rising temperatures combined to cause both of these events, and that continued climate change may result in nearly annual melting of the surface of the GIS by the year 2100. In addition, a ...

 

Central European vegetation response to abrupt climate change at 8.2 ka

  
Geology, Vol. 29, No. 6. (2001), pp. 551-554, https://doi.org/10.1130/0091-7613(2001)029<0551:cevrta>2.0.co;2

Abstract

Oxygen isotope records show, a major climatic reversal at 8.2 ka in Greenland and Europe. Annually laminated sediments from two lakes in Switzerland and Germany were sampled contiguously to assess the response of European vegetation to climate change ca. 8.2 ka with time resolution and precision comparable to those of the Greenland ice cores. The pollen assemblages show pronounced and immediate responses (0-20 yr) of terrestrial vegetation to the climatic change at 8.2 ka. A sudden collapse of Corylus avellana (hazel) ...

 

Experts agree global warming is melting the world rapidly

  
Science, Vol. 338, No. 6111. (30 November 2012), pp. 1138-1138, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.338.6111.1138

Abstract

Forty-seven glaciologists have arrived at a community consensus over all the data on what the past century's warming has done to the great ice sheets: a current annual loss of 344 billion tons of glacial ice, accounting for 20% of current sea level rise. Greenland's share—about 263 billion tons—is roughly what most researchers expected, but Antarctica's represents the first agreement on a rate that had ranged from a far larger loss to an actual gain. The new analysis, published on page ...
