Warming Himalayas cause deadly #algal #bloom in Arabian Sea

As snow and ice melt in the #Himalayan mountains, winter winds that blow down are becoming warmer and more humid. This alters the currents of the #ArabianSea and distribution of #nutrients – and in turn the marine #food chain, with #fish
struggling in the new conditions.

Fast response of cold ice-rich permafrost in northeast #Siberia to a warming #climate

The ice- and organic-rich permafrost of the northeast Siberian Arctic lowlands has been projected to remain stable beyond 2100, even under pessimistic #ClimateWarming scenarios. However, the numerical models used for projections lack processes which induce widespread #landscape #change termed #thermokarst, precluding realistic simulation of #permafrost #thaw in such ice-rich terrain.
