Scientists are analyzing sounds from glaciers to predict exactly how quickly ice is melting and what that could mean for the rise in sea level.
By 2050, about $2 billion of Chatham County's tax-assessed property will likely be affected by sea-level rise.
The facilities are located in every state, and are threatened by floods, hurricanes and wildfires that can cause dangerous leaks and explosions, according to a federal watchdog.
Sea levels are rising even faster on the East Coast and Gulf Coast. And advances in climate science mean we can see the future clearly for the first time.
Billions of people rely on glaciers for drinking water, hydropower and irrigation. A raft of new research suggests there is less ice left than previously thought.
The unusually high and low tides will be affecting coastal communities over the weekend. Scientists are calling on residents and visitors to help document the phenomenon.
Despite new pledges to cut emissions, the world is not on track to hit a key climate change target of limiting warming. Scientists warn a planet that heats up more than that will look very different.
In Georgia, oyster reef restoration typically relies on natural recruitment. The process involves putting shell or other material into tidal water and waiting for tiny oysters to settle there.
The U.N. has released the most comprehensive global climate science report ever. It is unequivocal: Humans must stop burning fossil fuels or suffer catastrophic impacts.
Hundreds of scientists are meeting to finalize a landmark climate report. It's meant to guide the next decade of international climate policy, but it's unclear if politicians will act on it.
Coastal areas are seeing a steady increase in high tide flooding. Scientists warn the problem is accelerating as the Earth gets hotter. And a little wobble in the Moon's orbit isn't helping.
Researchers say high tide flooding in U.S. coastal regions will become more frequent in the mid-2030s because of climate change, amplified by a routine wobble in the moon's orbit.
A graduate student is studying what kinds of plants are best at holding Tybee Island's coastal sand dunes in place.
Coastal communities will need massive amounts of mud and dirt to protect their shorelines from rising seas. One federal agency has it, but most is disposed of instead of reused.
Sea level rise is threatening billions in coastal property. A California lawmaker is proposing a novel way to retreat from the threat: buying and renting out properties as long as they're habitable.
