Winters in Siberian Permafrost Regions Have Warmed Since Millenia

Yesterday − Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research
For the first time, researchers at the Alfred Wegener Institute have successfully decoded climate data from old permafrost ground ice and reconstructed the development of winter temperatures in Russia's Lena River Delta. Their conclusions: over the past 7,000 years, winter temperatures in the Siberian permafrost regions have gradually risen. The study will be published today on Nature Geoscience's website. …

Fossils Survive Volcanic Eruption to Tell Us About the Origin of the Canary Islands

5 days ago − Uppsala University
The most recent eruption on the Canary Islands - at El Hierro in 2011 - produced spectacularly enigmatic white "floating rocks" that originated from the layers of oceanic sedimentary rock underneath the island. An international team of researchers, led from Uppsala University, use microscopic fossils found in the rocks to shed new light on the long-standing puzzle about the origin of the Canary Islands. …
