A new paper led by Memorial researchers has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The paper reconstructs past temperatures from an ice core, identifying a warmer past and demonstrating that the Greenland ice sheet is susceptible to rapid melt in a warming world.
Three images connected to Memorial are shortlisted for a national contest.
Science Exposed, organized by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, highlights top images featuring scientific research in all fields of study.
A total of 20 images have made the final cut.
Brad deYoung and Entcho Demirov at Memorial University are researchers in the VITALS research network, a pan-Canadian, multimillion initiative working to develop a better understanding of the role of the Labrador Sea in the Earth’s climate system. VITALS is linked to the Ocean Frontier Institute’s Northwest Atlantic Program. The team has put together a video to explain what is happening in the Labrador Sea and the implications of the changes that we are seeing for the global climate system.
