Radioactive Particles From Huge Solar Storm Found In Greenland

Traces of an enormous solar storm that battered the atmosphere and showered Earth in radioactive particles more than 2,500 years ago have been discovered under the Greenland ice sheet. The Guardian reports: Scientists studying ice nearly half a kilometer beneath the surface found a band of radioactive elements unleashed by a storm that struck the planet in 660BC. It was at least 10 times more powerful than any recorded by instruments set up to detect such events in the past 70 years, and as stro...

Ice Samples Reveal a Massive Sun Storm Hit Earth in Ancient Times...And It Could Happen Again

A gigantic solar storm hit Earth about 2,600 years ago, one about 10 times stronger than any solar storm recorded in the modern day, a new study finds.These findings suggest that such explosions recur regularly in Earth's history, and could wreak havoc if they were to hit now, given how dependent the world has become on electricity.The sun can bombard Earth with explosions of highly energetic particles known as solar proton events. These "proton storms" can endanger people and electronics bo...

Climate change: Rain melting Greenland ice sheet 'even in winter'

The sheer volume of ice covering Greenland means its fate has global repercussions.
Tags: News, Greenland


It's raining on the Greenland ice -- in the winter

Rainy weather is becoming increasingly common over parts of the Greenland ice sheet, triggering sudden melting events that are eating at the ice and priming the surface for more widespread future melting, says a new study. Some parts of the ice sheet are even receiving rain in winter -- a phenomenon that will spread as climate continues to warm, say the researchers.

Migrating snowline plays outsized role in setting pace of Greenland ice melt

Meltwater from Greenland's ice sheet is a leading contributor to global sea level rise, and a Brown University study shows that an underappreciated factor -- the position of the snowline on the ice sheet -- plays a key role in setting the pace of melting.

Can we ever evaluate technical debt?

Every couple of months, I talk to an entrepreneur who is interested in building a marketplace for buying and selling app businesses (i.e. the actual IP and ownership of an app or other piece of software). These markets always seem to suffer from a lack of liquidity, and one reason why is that it’s really hard to know how much technical debt is latent in a codebase. First, the developer behind the codebase may not even be aware of the technical debt they have piled on. Second, until a software en...

The History of Ancient Rome in 20 Quick Minutes: A Primer Narrated by Brian Cox

Two thousand years ago, Rome was half the world. A thousand years before that, it was “a tiny tribal settlement of the Latins by the river Tiber.” So, what happened? An awful lot. But narrator Brian Cox makes the history and longevity of Ancient Rome seem simple in 20 minutes in the Arzamas video above, which brings the same talent for narrative compression as we saw in an earlier video we featured with Cox describing the history of Russian Art. This is a far more sprawling subject, but ...

There's a cavity underneath Antarctica that's two thirds the size of Manhattan — a sign ice sheets are melting faster than we thought

NASA has found a 1,000-foot-tall cavity that's two-thirds the size of Manhattan under the Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica. The cavity is thought to have held 14 billion tons of ice that melted over the last three years.  The melting Thwaites Glacier is responsible for 4% of annual global sea-level rise. If the entire glacier were to melt, it would raise sea levels by 2 feet. The unexpected gap below the ice signals we know less about melting glaciers than we thought, and that scientists are lik...

NASA Discovers Another Massive Crater Beneath the Ice In Greenland (slashdot)

According to a new study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, NASA glaciologists found a crater thought to be more than 22 miles wide. "It is only 114 miles from the Hiawatha impact crater that was discovered in 2018," MIT Technology Review reports. "The identification of that first crater led NASA to dedicate additional resources for investigating the land under Greenland's ice." From the report: NASA glaciologists used topographical maps, satellite images, and radar scans to ...

A troubling new map shows what your city's climate will look like in 60 years. San Francisco will feel like Los Angeles, and New York will be more like Arkansas.

A new study shows what the climates of various US cities might be like in 60 years. New York City will have a climate like the one Arkansas has today. The Bay Area will feel more like Los Angeles. The research is accompanied by an interactive map that lets users see which place has a climate that's similar to what their city might experience in the future.  The study's authors found that overall, if carbon-dioxide emissions continue to increase unabated, the climate in North American cities wi...

Exit, Pursued By A Bear.

Perhaps the greatest stage direction ever  is in William Shakespeare's  Winters Tale,  in which a scene ends with  "Exit, pursued by bear."A bear?  What bear?    Believe it or not, a Polar Bear.   A Polar Bear?  In Elizabethan England? Actually, yes.Author Garry Wills,  writing in  Verdi’s Shakespeare , notes that  Winter's Tale  was written in 1610 and that in 1609, two Polar Bear cubs were captured from Greenland  by Jonas Poole  and brought to England where they were sold to Philip Hen...

When Warren Washington created the first climate model, he had no idea how necessary it was. He just won the 'Nobel Prize for the environment.'

Warren Washington, who's 89 years old, has been awarded the 2019 Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement — an award sometimes described as the "Nobel Prize for the environment." The prize honors Washington's pioneering work modeling Earth's climate. Washington's climate models have been integral to the scientific community and general public because they've improved our ability study weather patterns and make predictions about the impacts of climate change. Washington is ...

Scientists Have Reduced the Forecast of Sea Level Rise Seven Times Due To Melting of the Antarctic (slashdot)

The destruction of the Antarctic ice sheet may not lead to such a catastrophic rise in the level of the oceans, as previously thought. In a new study, the authors calculated that instead of growing by a meter or more by 2100, a growth of 14-15 cm is likely, writes N + 1. At the same time, the melting of the ice of Greenland and Antarctica is not fully taken into account in modern climate models, as it will lead to even more destabilization of the regional climate. Both studies on this are publis...

As ice melts, Greenland could become big sand exporter: study

Mining of sand and gravel, widely used in the construction industry, could boost the economy for Greenland's 56,000 population who have wide powers of self-rule within Denmark but rely heavily on subsidies from Copenhagen. By mining sand, "Greenland could benefit from the challenges brought by climate change," a team of scientists in Denmark and the United States wrote in the journal Nature Sustainability. The study, headlined "Promises and perils of sand exploitation in Greenland", said the A...
