Sea level rise: rapid and unstoppable unless Paris Agreement targets met
Sea level rise: rapid and unstoppable unless Paris Agreement targets met
New research , models the impacts on the Antarctic Ice Sheet of several different global warming scenarios and the resulting effects on global sea levels. The study was led by the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and included a researcher from McGill University. The scenarios that were considered range from meeting the Paris Agreement target of 2░C warming and an aspirational 1.5░C scenario to our current course which, if not altered, will yield three or more degrees of warming.

Estuaries’ vast potential for climate mitigation
The salt marshes, mud flats and eel grass meadows of temperate river estuaries are more effective at capturing and storing greenhouse gases than young coastal forests and may sequester carbon for centuries, if not millennia, according to researchers from the University of Victoria (UVic). The amount of carbon captured and stored, known as sequestered, by the Cowichan estuary on Vancouver Island is roughly double that of an actively growing 20-year-old Pacific Northwest forest of the same area, reports a new study published in the journal Frontiers in Marine Science .
