New Study Confirms Water Vapor as Global Warming Amplifier

Rising levels of water vapor in the upper troposphere – a key amplifier of global warming – will intensify climate change impacts over the next decades. This new study is the first to show that increased water vapor concentrations in the atmosphere are a direct result of human activities.

Dense seawater around Antarctica triggers an uncommon wave

A special type of wave can be excited by the offshore transport of dense water produced around Antarctic continental shelves. Understanding ocean circulation in these regions and how it affects the deep ocean is an important step towards improving climate projections.
