Researchers used field observations and remote sensing data to map the spread of the bacteria-carrying ticks in central and eastern Canada.
There are no direct global-scale observations of carbon fluxes between the land and oceans and the overlying atmosphere. Understanding the carbon cycle requires estimates of these fluxes, which can be computed indirectly using models constrained with global space-based observations that provide... Read More
Extreme weather events such as heat waves and drought affect the presence of certain bird species.
Polar bears rely on sea ice to hunt seals, their preferred prey.
Scientists are probing environmental data from reanalysis models in the hopes of finding answers.
The floating plant-like organisms are showing up in higher concentrations across the Arctic Ocean.
Though located a world away, Lake Salda, Turkey, shares similar mineralogy as Jezero Crater on Mars.
As scientists detect plant fluorescence in better detail, they inch closer to helping farmers respond to extreme weather and close in on understanding how carbon cycles through ecosystems.
Unusually clear skies and persistent, unseasonable heat may have set the stage for a large and persistent blooms of phytoplankton in the waters around England.

After two years of severe drought, abundant rain finally fell over the Australian state and turned the landscape green.
In May 2020, a vivid phytoplankton bloom colored the surface waters of the country’s second-longest fjord.
Small birds prefer winter landscapes that have larger thermal differences, likely because they offer more opportunities to find refuge from the cold.
With most lockdowns ending and economic activity resuming, levels of the air pollutant have returned to near normal for this time of year.
