New generation ESA-satellites capable of revealing future sea level rises

3 October 2017

New generation ESA-satellites capable of revealing future sea level rises NEGIS, the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream, splits into three gigantic glaciers - holding back ice masses equaling a global sea level rise of approx. one meter. ESA satellites can help reveal future sea increases.

Massive Antarctic Volcanic Eruptions Triggered Abrupt Southern Hemisphere Climate Changes Near the End of the Last Ice Age

5 September 2017

Massive Antarctic Volcanic Eruptions Triggered Abrupt Southern Hemisphere Climate Changes Near the End of the Last Ice AgeHalogen-rich eruptions created a stratospheric ozone hole over Antarctica that, analogous to the modern ozone hole, led to large-scale changes in atmospheric circulation and hydroclimate throughout the Southern Hemisphere.

Satellite photos reveal gigantic outburst floods
