Ozone pollution has increased in Antarctica

Ozone is a pollutant at ground level, but very high in the atmosphere's 'ozone layer,' it absorbs damaging ultraviolet radiation. Past studies have examined ozone levels in the Southern Hemisphere, but little is known about levels of the molecule in Antarctica over long periods. Now, researchers reporting in ACS' Environmental Science & Technology have analyzed more than 25 years of Antarctic data, finding that concentrations near the ground arose from both natural and human-related sources.

In 1898 a Belgian ship was frozen into the ice off the coast of Antarctica

In 1898 a Belgian ship on a scientific expedition was frozen into the sea off the coast of Antarctica. During the long polar night, its 18 men would confront fear, death, illness, and despair. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll describe life aboard the Belgica during its long, dark southern winter. — Read the rest

Lessons From A Hot Past

This short editorial published recently in Nature Geoscience is worth reading and thinking about. It summarizes our findings of past climate change and how earth systems such as sea level, glaciers, and the biosphere responded to these climate swings. Reconstructing temperatures going back to the Eocene (~50 million years ago) and later in the Miocene (~ 15 million years ago) reveal a very different world. These finding do come with a caveat. The rates of change are averaged over thousands of ye...

The rush to ‘go electric’ comes with a hidden cost: destructive lithium mining | Thea Riofrancos

As the world moves towards electric cars and renewable grids, demand for lithium is wreaking havoc in northern ChileThe Atacama salt flat is a majestic, high-altitude expanse of gradations of white and grey, peppered with red lagoons and ringed by towering volcanoes. It took me a moment to get my bearings on my first visit, standing on this windswept plateau of 3,000 sq km (1,200 sq miles). A vertiginous drive had taken me and two other researchers through a sandstorm, a rainstorm, and the peaks...

Time-lapse video shows the ice shelf of one of Antarctica's largest glaciers breaking into large chunks

University of Washington One of Antarctica's largest glaciers is in danger as the ice shelf holding it in place is melting. A time-lapse of Pine Island Glacier taken from 2015 to 2020 shows its ice shelf breaking into chunks. Scientists worry that the ice shelf may collapse more rapidly than previously projected. See more stories on Insider's business page. The ice shelf holding together one of Antarctica's largest glaciers is breaking apart rapidly as scientists worry it cou...

A Beautiful, High-Resolution Map of the Internet (2021)

The beginnings of the Internet were uncharted territory, especially before the days of graphic browsers. You had a number, you dialed up to a location. Certain locations were named after their host universities or government sites and that made sense in an old-school telephone exchange way. But the rest was just a vast ocean of data, of strange lands, and many, many barriers. How big, exactly, is the internet? And how do we measure it? What is the “space” of cyberspace? There have been maps tha...

Earth now has a 5th ocean, according to National Geographic, which upgraded the status of the waters around Antarctica

Icebergs on the Weddell sea, part of the Southern ocean. Wolfgang Kaehler/LightRocket via Getty Images National Geographic said on Tuesday it will be adding a fifth ocean to its maps. The Southern Ocean is the second-smallest ocean and surrounds the Antarctic. The move was long-awaited, as scientists have been using the term for years. See more stories on Insider's business page.

Antarctica: How have temperatures varied since the last glacial period?

Antarctica has experienced significant temperature changes, especially since the last glacial period. An international collaboration including scientists from the CNRS1 has now challenged previously accepted estimates of these variations, using new measurements published on June 4, 2021 in Science. Their study highlights differences in behavior between East and West Antarctica, connected in particular to differing variations in their altitude.

Garcetti failed Los Angeles. Does he really deserve an ambassadorship?

President Joe Biden reportedly plans to formally nominate two-term Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to be the United States’ next ambassador to India. I guess Biden’s thinking was if Garcetti’s policies can wreck a city of 4 million people, just imagine what he can do in a nation of 1.6 billion! Based on his tenure as mayor, maybe Garcetti is planning to turn the Taj Mahal into a homeless shelter … or possibly just threaten to shut off the water and power of residents for throwing house parties. ...

'Polar Pod' floating laboratory is set to drift around Antarctica to research the Southern Ocean

The wild waters of the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica are one of the planet's biggest carbon stores. The ocean absorbs around 12% of all carbon dioxide generated by humans each year, but despite its huge importance in regulating the Earth's climate, it has barely been studied by science.
