Environment Counts | New evidence affirms interglacial warming linked to small variations in Earth’s orbit

New evidence affirms interglacial warming linked to small variations in Earth’s orbit Author: Geoff Zeiss – Published At: 2016-08-03 18:04 – (749 Reads) Approximately 800,000 years ago, something changed within the climate system that led to glacial/interglacial periods with a cycle time of roughly 100,000 years. In 1941, Milutin Milankovitch introduced his orbital forcing theory […]

Catastrophic dispersion of coal fly ash into oceans prior to the P-Tr extinction Author: Geoff Zeiss – Published At: 2011-01-24 20:34 – (1083 Reads) During the Permian–Triassic (P–Tr) extinction event about 250 million years ago, more than 90% of marine species went extinct, and biogeochemical cycles were disrupted globally. This analysis of terrestrial carbon in marine […]

Environment Counts | Causes of Antarctica ice loss found to be complex

Causes of Antarctica ice loss found to be complex Author: Geoff Zeiss – Published At: 2012-07-14 22:27 – (1116 Reads) Nearly 90% of Antarctica’s ice loss is discharged through ice shelves, floating glaciers, into the ocean. The ice shelves also affect the flow of the adjacent grounded ice. Recent examples of sudden break-up events along […]
