Very high silicon content surprises Mars researchers
17 December 2015
New results from the Mars rover Curosity show that some rocks in Gale Crater have a high content of the element silicon. Since the accumulation of silica typically require a combination of both heat and water, this place might once
The past shows how abrupt climate shifts affect Earth
09 November 2015
New research shows how past abrupt climatic changes in the North Atlantic propagated globally. The study, led by researchers from The Niels Bohr Institute, shows how interaction between heat transport in the ocean and the...
The Greenland ice sheet contains nutrients from precipitation
04 November 2015
New research shows that the ice sheet on Greenland contains the nutrient phosphorus, which was carried by the atmosphere across the country, where it fell with precipitation. This new knowledge is important for...
Volcanic eruptions are important for world climate
08 July 2015
Large volcanic eruptions release huge clouds of ash and acid into the atmosphere. These clouds spread across the globe and block out the Sun, resulting in a colder climate for decades afterwards. Climate researchers have known
Risk of major sea level rise in Northern Europe
18 June 2015
Global warming leads to the ice sheets on land melting and flowing into the sea, which consequently rises. New calculations by researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute show that the sea level in Northern Europe may rise more than
New Greenland ice core drilled through the Renland ice cap
17 June 2015
An international research team led by the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen have drilled an ice core through the ice cap on the Renland peninsula in the Scoresbysund fjord in Eastern Greenland in record time.
