Scientists predict extensive ice loss from huge Antarctic glacier Current rates of climate change could trigger instability in a major Antarctic glacier, ultimately leading to more than 2m of sea-level rise.

New data on variability of Earth's reflectance over the last 16 years The Earth's albedo is a fundamental atmospheric parameter having deep implications for temperature and climate change. Experiments have been performed to monitor it over the past two decades to reveal how it evolves. One of these has brought up to date the observations made since 2007 and gives a new systematic record of the Earth's albedo covering the period between 1998-2014.

Extreme events, changes in precipitation and temperature; a new study on Po river basin In the last decades the climate over Po river basin has changed: data show changes in precipitation and temperature, and projections indicate that in the future the area will experience a decrease of total precipitation.

New study sets climate target for agriculture In order to meet the goals set by the Paris climate agreement, agriculture will need to reduce emissions substantially. In a new study researchers propose a target for greenhouse gas emissions from farming that could meet those goals.

Higher temperatures increase methane release from northern European peat bogs Higher temperatures being brought about by global warming are increasing methane emissions from the extensive northern European peatlands, a recent study has found. The researchers also say that future estimations of greenhouse gas emissions can be improved via better land-cover classification.

IPCC agrees on strategy and timeline for its next series of reports and 6th Assessment Report The IPCC has decided the timeline for its next series of reports and responded positively to the invitation from the UNFCCC to provide a special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 ÂșC above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways.
