Ozone Pollution in India Kills Enough Crops to Feed 94 Million in Poverty

In one year, India's ozone pollution damaged millions of tons of the country's major crops, causing losses of more than a billion dollars and destroying enough food to feed tens of millions of people living below the poverty line. These are findings of a new study co-authored by researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, that looked at the agricultural effects in 2005 of high concentrations of ground-level ozone, a plant-damaging pollutant formed by emissions from vehicles, cooking stoves, and other sources.

How does the Southern Ocean regulate global climate?

Even though it's eparated from the rest of the world's oceans by a strong circulation of currents and a distinct temperature gradient, the Southern Ocean is known to be a key driver of global climate and carbon cycles. Climate researchers and oceanographers may soon know a lot more about the enigmatic ocean as they deploy hundreds of robotic floats deployed around Antarctica in a six-year, $21 million research project aimed at understanding ocean dynamics, chemistry and carbon cycling.

Warming Air Was Trigger for Antarctic Ice Shelf Collapse

It was clear to anyone who went to Antarctica in the summer of 2001-02 that it was an unusually warm one - record-setting, in fact - and just one in a series of warm austral summers. That December, geologic oceanographer Eugene Domack , now at the University of South Florida, was part of an expedition sampling the Southern Ocean seafloor around the Antarctic Peninsula - then, as now, one of the fastest-warming places on the globe.
