Ten years of ancient genome analysis has taught scientists 'what it means to be human'

A ball of 4,000-year-old hair frozen in time tangled around a whalebone comb led to the first ever reconstruction of an ancient human genome a decade ago. The hair, which was preserved in arctic permafrost in Greenland, was collected in the 1980s. It wasn't until 2010 that evolutionary biologist Professor Eske Willerslev was able to use pioneering shotgun DNA sequencing to reconstruct the genetic history of the hair. It sparked a 'decade of discovery.'

Algorithm reveals the mysterious foraging habits of narwhals

An algorithm can predict when narwhals hunt - a task once nearly impossible to gain insight into. Mathematicians and computer scientists at the University of Copenhagen, together with marine biologists in Greenland, have made progress in gathering knowledge about this enigmatic Arctic whale at a time when climate change is pressuring them.

‘Greenland’ Sequel Coming, Even Though the First Movie Kind of Ended the World

Greenland, a shockingly good Gerard Butler movie about a planet-killing comet, is getting a sequel. Which is a little surprising, since the movie ended with the comet smashing into Earth and killing off a huge chunk of the population. But those who survived will now be forced to deal with more problems as they trek across the ruined wasteland of what was once Europe. Butler and original director Ric Roman Waugh are both set to return for the sequel, which is called Greenland: Migration. I ex...

Solar Eclipse Visible In Sacramento Area Early Thursday Morning

(CBS13/CNN) — The moon will partially block out the sun this Thursday to create a “ring of fire” solar eclipse. Some people in the Northern Hemisphere will be able to catch the first of two solar eclipses this year on June 10. A solar eclipse happens when the moon crosses between the sun and the Earth, which blocks a portion of the sun’s rays, according to NASA. This eclipse is an annular eclipse, meaning the moon is far enough away from the Earth that it appears smaller than the sun. When the m...

Tipping elements can destabilize each other, leading to climate domino effects

Under global warming, tipping elements in the Earth system can destabilize each other and eventually lead to climate domino effects. The ice sheets on Greenland and West Antarctica are potential starting points for tipping cascades, a novel network analysis reveals. The Atlantic overturning circulation would then act as a transmitter, and eventually elements like the Amazon rainforest would be impacted. The consequences for people would reach from sea-level rise to biosphere degradation.

Greenland ice sheet on brink of major tipping point, says study

Parts of Greenland may be on the verge of tipping: New early-warning signals detected

Scientists have detected new early-warning signals indicating that the central-western part of the Greenland Ice Sheet may undergo a critical transition relatively soon. Because of rising temperatures, a new study by researchers from Germany and Norway shows, the destabilization of the ice sheet has begun and the process of melting may escalate already at limited warming levels. A tipping of the ice sheet would substantially increase long-term global sea level rise.
