Warm summers could weaken ocean circulation

Long-term observations reveal the influence of increased surface freshening on convection in the subpolar North Atlantic

Aerosols in the atmosphere should reflect part of the solar irradiation - that is the main idea of the Solar Radiation Management. However this method carries long-term risks. Graphict: Kiel Earth Institute

Beware of the "Temperature Debt"

Artificial cooling of the atmosphere with aerosols carries a long-term risk

Schematic evolution of retrogressive slope failure due to overpressured gas below the gas haydrate stability zone (GHSZ): a submarine slope with gas hydrate-bearing sediments  and overpressured gas (bright area) at the bottom of the GHSZ induces pipe generation into the GHSZ,  the conduit encounters a permeable layer; gas enters and leads to overpressure transfer from the bottom of the GHSZ to the shallow subsurface, and finally overpessured gas causes shear banding in the weak layer and generates retrogressive slope failure.

Stable gas hydrates can trigger landslides

"Cement of continental slopes" effect slope stability differently than previously thought
