Global Warming of 1.5 Degrees C
Description: "An IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 degrees C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable de

Indicators of Climate Change in California
Description: "The report presents 36 indicators that show how climate change is affecting California. The report is intended to promote scientific analysis to inform decision-making on mitigating and adapting to climate change and to serve as a resource for decision m

Evolving Assessments of Human and Natural Contributions to Climate Change
Description: "To help inform policymaking, researchers and major scientific assessment processes have analyzed the attribution of observed climate change to various possible causes. Scientific assessments of both climate change and the extent to which humans have infl

Rising pCO2 in Freshwater Ecosystems Has the Potential to Negatively Affect Predator-Induced Defenses in Daphnia
Description: "Highlights: 35-year monitoring data showed steady pCO2 increase and pH decrease in four reservoirs; Freshwater acidification affects inducible defenses in the keystone species Daphnia; pCO2 hampers neuronal kairomone transmission, preventing full defense

Groundwater Depletion: A Significant Unreported Source of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
Description: "We suggest that groundwater depletion adds significant and measurable CO2 to the atmosphere and should be considered as a source in future CO2 budgets as groundwater depletion at the same or greater rate is likely to continue." (Wood, W. W. and D. W. Hyn

Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Reservoir Water Surfaces: A New Global Synthesis
Description: "Collectively, reservoirs created by dams are thought to be an important source of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to the atmosphere. So far, efforts to quantify, model, and manage these emissions have been limited by data availability and inconsistencies in meth

Plant responses to increasing CO2 reduce estimates of climate impacts on drought severity
Description: "We show that the water savings that plants experience under high CO2 conditions compensate for much of the effect of warmer temperatures, keeping the amount of water on land, on average, higher than we would predict with common drought metrics, and with

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

Large CO2 effluxes at night and during synoptic weather events significantly contribute to CO2 emissions from a reservoir
Description: "CO2 emissions from inland waters are commonly determined by indirect methods that are based on the product of a gas transfer coefficient and the concentration gradient at the air water interface (e.g., wind-based gas transfer models). The measurements of
