New research links reduced glacier cover to higher rates of fungal decomposition of organic material. If these rates continue to rise, it could further disrupt the carbon cycle.

A major firm will facilitate the engagement of commercial enterprise with the university’s global climate and sustainability research.
Swiss ski resorts are using geotextiles to prevent accelerated glacial melting, but researchers have found this strategy too expensive for use in global-scale glacier protection.
The discovery of fossil plants below a mile of Greenland ice indicates that the ice sheet completely melted in the past, and suggests it could rapidly do so again.
Researchers have reconstructed past sea levels in the western Mediterranean in new detail by sampling coastal cave formations.
Scientists at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies find that 2020 was statistically equal with 2016, continuing a long-term trend.
Large numbers of icebergs that drifted unusually far from Antarctica before melting into ocean waters have been key to initiating ice ages of the past, says a new study.
New research suggests that trees may handle predicted drier conditions better than current models suggest.
Researchers from around the world have established a new archive of data documenting changes in the movements of animals in the far north.
An international team suggests that research centers around the world using numerical models to predict future climate change should include simulations of past climates.
