Oceans are Warming Even Faster than Previous Estimates

Oceans are Warming Even Faster than Previous Estimates

Four different studies reveal that greenhouse gases are raising temperatures of oceans at a much rapid rate than previously believed. Ocean Heating is a critical marker of climate change because most of the excessive solar energy absorbed by the greenhouse gases is accumulated in oceans. In addition to that, ocean temperatures don’t experience year-to-year variations…

Scientists believe that Glacial Engineering could help us to Limit Sea-level Rise

Scientists believe that Glacial Engineering could help us to Limit Sea-level Rise

Computer models show that geological engineering could help us to prevent the melting of glaciers. Environmental pollution is probably the most critical challenge humanity faces in today’s technological world. This ever-increasing pollution is leading to some drastic changes, including the melting of glaciers, which are pushing our planet towards its destruction. According to the latest…

Scientists say that Antarctica is Shaking due to ‘Earthquakes’

Scientists say that Antarctica is Shaking due to ‘Earthquakes’

Slow yet vigorous interior massive tremors known as ‘Ice Quakes’, caused by the sudden movement of ice over rough patches of rock within glacier or by fracturing crevasses (which according to some measurements are the equivalent of magnitude-7 earthquakes), are making Antarctica tremor. Ice Quakes differentiate, however, from the conventional micro-quakes and tremors triggered by…
