Future loss of Arctic sea-ice cover could drive a substantial decrease in California's rainfall
Description: "From 2012 to 2016, California experienced one of the worst droughts since the start of observational records. As in previous dry periods, precipitation-inducing winter storms were steered away from California by a persistent atmospheric ridging system in

A high-end sea level rise probabilistic projection including rapid Antarctic ice sheet mass loss
Description: "The potential for break-up of Antarctic ice shelves by hydrofracturing and following ice cliff instability might be important for future ice dynamics. One recent study suggests that the Antarctic ice sheet could lose a lot more mass during the 21st centu

Climate Change Indicators in the United States
Description: "The Earth's climate is changing. Temperatures are rising, snow and rainfall patterns are shifting, and more extreme climate events -- like heavy rainstorms and record high temperatures -- are already happening. Many of these observed changes are linked t

Contribution of Antarctica to past and future sea-level rise
Description: "Here we use a model coupling ice sheet and climate dynamics—including previously underappreciated processes linking atmospheric warming with hydrofracturing of buttressing ice shelves and structural collapse of marine-terminating ice cliffs—that is calib
