  1. Why is it getting cloudier in the Arctic?Read the original story w/Photo

    Friday Sep 15 | Environmental News Network

    Clouds are an important part of the Arctic climate because they trap warm air at the surface like a blanket. There has been a continuous increase in cloud cover over the Arctic for the past two decades and this is driving big changes on land and in the ocean.


  2. Alaska's North Slope Snow-Free Season is LengtheningRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 4, 2017 | Environmental News Network

    On the North Slope of Alaska, snow is melting earlier in the spring and the snow-in date is happening later in the fall, according to a new study by CIRES and NOAA researchers. Atmospheric dynamics and sea ice conditions are behind this lengthening of the snow-free season, the scientists found, and the consequences are far reaching - including birds laying eggs sooner and iced-over rivers flowing earlier.

  6. Offshore wind turbines vulnerable to Category 5 hurricane gustsRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 7, 2017 | Environmental News Network

    Offshore wind turbines built according to current standards may not be able to withstand the powerful gusts of a Category 5 hurricane, creating potential risk for any such turbines built in hurricane-prone areas, new University of Colorado Boulder-led research shows. The study, which was conducted in collaboration with the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, and the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado, highlights the limitations of current turbine design and could provide guidance for manufacturers and engineers looking to build more hurricane-resilient turbines in the future.


  7. Sea Ice Extent Sinks to Record Lows at Both PolesRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 23, 2017 | Environmental News Network

    Arctic sea ice appears to have reached on March 7 a record low wintertime maximum extent, according to scientists at NASA and the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado. And on the opposite side of the planet, on March 3 sea ice around Antarctica hit its lowest extent ever recorded by satellites at the end of summer in the Southern Hemisphere, a surprising turn of events after decades of moderate sea ice expansion.
