MCP Student Christelle Rohaut Wins Prestigious Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship

College of Environmental Design student Christelle Rohaut (MCP ‘18) and her mentor, Associate Professor of City & Regional Planning Malo Hutson, have been awarded the prestigious Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship, a year-long program that supports design, engineering and business endeavors relating to the circular economy. Rohaut is one of 18 students chosen from an international pool of applicants and will spend the next year exploring sustainable housing solutions in Latin America under the mentorship of Professor Hutson.

Loss of Arctic Ice May Promote Hybrid Marine Mammals

WhiteleyAndrewsmall.jpg

Scientists expect the Arctic Ocean to be ice-free in summer by century’s end. Now a trio of researchers say losing this continent-sized natural barrier between species such as bears, whales and seals, could mean extinction of some rare marine mammals and the loss of many adaptive gene combinations.

Team of Researchers Find Evidence of Fire in Antarctic Ice

A team of scientists studying Antarctic ice cores have found surprising evidence of a fluctuating pattern of carbon monoxide concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere caused by biomass burning in the Southern Hemisphere over the past 650 years.

'Coolest' Month in 2010 Ties Second Warmest October

1010tlt_1.jpg

How warm has 2010 been? So warm that although October was the coolest month so far this year year (compared to seasonal norms), it tied October 2006 as the second warmest October in the 32-year satellite climate record.

Global Temperature Report - Nov. 2009

1109map.jpg

The strong signature of an El Niño Pacific Ocean warming event showed up as the warmest November in 30 years — and not just by a little bit. November 2009 was a full 0.1 C (0.18 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than November 2005, the second warmest November in the 31-year satellite record.

Seafloor Fossils Provide Clues on Climate Change

1.jpg

Deep under the sea, a fossil the size of a sand grain is nestled among a billion of its closest dead relatives. Known as foraminifera, these complex little shells of calcium carbonate can tell you the sea level, temperature, and ocean conditions of Earth millions of years ago. That is, if you know what to look for.

Greenhouse Gas Drove Climate Change and Ice Volume

DeConto_figure2.jpg

New temperature data and numerical climate model simulations contradict the long-held idea that global temperatures were steady in the greenhouse-to-icehouse transition 34 million years ago. This suggests that models in use now to predict climate change may be underestimating future polar warming.
