30 million euros for research into climate change feedbacks

Environment - Earth Sciences

Climate change can accelerate due to feedback mechanisms: complex phenomena caused by climate change that in turn can further drive climate change. An example is the extra CO2 emissions from thawing permafrost. Research into the influence of feedback mechanisms in the long term has been ongoing, and modern climate change research is obviously happening as well, but the connection between the two has so far been underemphasized. EMBRACER, a globally unique center with leading climate experts, aims to change that with a 10-year research project of ¤30 million, funded by NWO. "This is really the next step in climate research."

Surprising insights about debris flows on Mars

Astronomy & Space - Earth Sciences

The period that liquid water was present on the surface of Mars may have been shorter than previously thought.

Destabilising interactions in the climate system: How tipping elements interact

Beyond 2°C of global warming, the risk of one climate tipping element triggering other tipping elements in the Earth's climate system strongly increases.

Seaweed forests are an overlooked component of oceanic carbon storage

Environment - Earth Sciences

A groundbreaking study by an international team of researchers has revealed seaweed forests to be significant contributors to oceanic carbon storage.

Potential collapse of the Atlantic Ocean Circulation strongly affects European climate

Earth Sciences - Environment

Researchers from Utrecht University have successfully simulated the collapse of the large-scale ocean circulation in the Atlantic Ocean using a complex climate model, revealing severe global climate repercussions with Europe bearing the brunt. They published their findings in the scientific journal Science Advances today.

The limits of the Netherlands’ water system have been reached

Long-term drought, severe storms, and rising sea levels; Without a clear policy, we will eventually find ourselves surrounded by water, without a drop to drink, explain  Maarten Kleinhans ,  Esther Stouthamer  and  Niko Wanders.
