  • Black carbon a significant factor in melting of Himalayan glaciers

    The fact that glaciers in the Himalayan mountains are thinning is not disputed. However, few researchers have attempted to rigorously examine and quantify the causes. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientist Surabi Menon set out to isolate the impacts of the most commonly blamed culprit—greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide—from other particles in the air that may be causing the ...

  • Study links polar vortex chills to melting sea ice

    Remember the polar vortex, the huge mass of Arctic air that can plunge much of the U.S. into the deep freeze? You might have to get used to it. A new study says that as the world gets warmer, parts of North America, Europe and Asia could see more frequent and stronger visits of that cold air. Researchers say that's because of shrinking ice in the seas off Russia. Normally, the polar ...

  • Warm Ocean, Not Icebergs, Causing Most Of Antarctic Ice Shelves´ Mass Loss

    Ocean waters melting the undersides of Antarctic ice shelves are responsible for most of the continent's ice shelf mass loss, a new study by NASA and university researchers has found. Scientists have studied the rates of basal melt, or the melting of the ice shelves from underneath, of individual ice shelves, the floating extensions of glaciers that empty into the sea. But this is the first ...

  • Does your company have a product that you need a Material Safety Data Sheet for?

    The majority of commercially available products need to have a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) provided by the manufacturer or distributor. MSDS is designed to provide the user of the product with important information about the product related to the components and particularly the proper procedures for handling or working with the product. MSDS's include information such as physical data ...

  • Desert dust cuts Colorado river flow

    Snow melt in the Colorado River basin (USA) is occurring earlier, reducing runoff and the amount of crucial water available downstream. A new study shows this is due to increased dust caused by human activities in the region during the past 150 years. The study, led by a NASA scientist and funded by the agency and the National Science Foundation (NSF), showed peak spring runoff now comes three ...
