Arctic heat and its impact on marine organisms abundance

The impact of arctic heat and rising sea surface temperatures on marine organisms

Since the early 1990s, satellite data has recorded regular rises in sea levels all over the world due to the warming of seas and oceans in addition to other phenomena such as El Niño. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), warned in its report published in December 2019 that …

Endangered reptiles need urgent actions in the age of climate change

Endangered reptiles need urgent action in the age of climate change

Reptiles are very sensitive to climate change and many of them are endangered and therefore require urgent conservation actions.   Climate change is an increased threat to life on Earth and mainly to biodiversity. This change has affected several physiological and ecological processes thus causing the modification of the distribution …

Arctic warming, how has it changed pathogens trend?

Arctic warming, how has it changed the pathogen trend?

The Arctic is identified as the main affected region worldwide by climate change. Arctic warming is likely to hit an all-time record especially this summer.   Hot summer is becoming a standard for arctic weather, but recent months have reached abnormally very high temperatures and scientists estimated that the last …

Climate change is destroying agriculture in sub-saharan Africa

Climate change and agriculture in sub saharan africa

The trends in drought due to climate change will likely continue inputting immense pressure on food security in poor communities and weak ecosystems like the agriculture in Sub-saharan Africa.   Actually, the natural decrease in rainfall frequency and quantity has accelerated the evapotranspiration in semi-arid regions. The drought mostly generates …

Climate change: Far future of the northern Adriatic sea heat

Climate change: Far future of the northern Adriatic sea heat

Climate change is no more just some hypothesis on how nature reacts to heat but is now being felt across the world and it is becoming the most complex issue facing modern societies. Northern Adriatic Sea is just another affected ecosystem that should be evaluated further under projected heat scenarios …

Arctic sea ice was three times thicker than today !!

Arctic sea ice was three times thicker than today !!

Twenty years ago the Arctic sea ice was three times thicker than today. This has made the continent much less resilient. Scientists said recent multi-year environmental extremes, potential albedo instabilities, and increased sensitivity of sea ice to storms in marginal seas, are overcoming negative radiative feedback, which point to passing …

Climate change boosted jellyfish blooms in world coastal areas

Climate change boosted jellyfish blooms in world coastal areas

It seems jellyfish are the main problem for swimmers this summer. High temperatures, calm and warm water seas and packed beaches have resulted in  jellyfish blooms around the world.   Jellyfish are a conspicuous component of coastal marine ecosystems and are renowned for causing spectacular and, sometimes problematic, blooms. In …

Climate change: trees adaptation is unlikely to guarantee its survival

Climate change: trees adaptation is unlikely to guarantee its survival

According to scientists, given the rapid pace of climate change, trees adaptation with such long generation times appears unlikely to enable persistence in most species.   The actual drought level and global warming are threatening many species mainly flora where trees struggle to survive, but predicting the damage that cause …

‘Zombie fires’ are sweeping across the Arctic

'Zombie fires' are sweeping across the Arctic

NASA’s Aqua satellite detected Arctic fires criss-crossing the landscape and huge clouds of smoke obscuring large portions of the Siberia, that will “catch a ride on the jet stream to other areas of the globe,” according to scientists.   Siberian fires are used to be seasonal. However, NASA scientists are …

How should we conduct anxiety in response to climate change?

It is time for psychology and psychologists to think seriously about the ways in which climate change anxiety could be a chronic mental health problem.   Regardless of the type of figure of climate change that we experience, high temperatures record, hurricanes, flooding, or drought, climate change is happening. Although …

Climate warming helps Arctic spiders to reproduce at twice

Climate warming helps Arctic spiders to reproduce at twice

The Arctic climate warming represents a major concern for environmentalist. Arctic temperatures are currently rising at twice the global average and climate projections indicate that the Arctic will continue to warm at a higher rate than the rest of the globe, which will lead to longer growing seasons.    One …

Arctic surface partial pressure of CO2 has increased at twice!

Arctic surface partial pressure of CO2 has increased at twice!

As the pace of climate change increases, the Arctic Ocean has experienced dramatic mutation, including warming and sea-ice loss. These changes also influence Arctic Ocean carbon dioxide (CO2) chemistry by decreasing the carbonate mineral saturation state and expanding the water acidification rate.    Oceans equilibrate the atmosphere by taking carbon …
