Atlantic Ocean Circulation Found to be Faster During Last Ice Age

The circulation of water through the Atlantic Ocean during the last Ice Age was faster than previously assumed, and stronger than it currently is today, according to new research led by environmental physicists at Heidelberg University, Germany. The “Atlantic heat pump” sees warm water from the Gulf of Mexico transported north and west where it […]

Rise in Temperature and Carbon Dioxide Follow One Another Closely

New research from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen has shown that the rise in temperature after the last ice age into the warmer intergrlacial period was followed closely by a rise in atmospheric carbon dioxide, contrary to previously held opinion. The research was published in the journal Climate of the Past and showed

Oldest Fossil Creatures Found, Preceded Ancient Ice Age

A team of geoscientists working on a separate geological project in South Australia accidentally stumbled upon the oldest evidence of animal life yet found. Previously, the oldest fossil evidence of non-unicellular, “hard bodied” life forms dates to about 550 million years ago. This new discovery pushes back the clock on animal life by 80 to 90 million years.
