Study: Environmental Bleaching Impairs Long-Term Coral Reproduction
A new study by Dr. Don Levitan shows that bleaching events brought on by rising sea temperatures are having a detrimental long-term impact on coral fertility. More >
Climate Change in the Holocene
Dr. Thomas Bianchi and collaborators are developing a high-resolution record of the climate from the Holocene into the late Pleistocene in the Arctic, using sediment from the Beaufort Sea in Alaska. More >
FAU Continues Study on Health Effects of Climate Change
Will vector-borne diseases such as Dengue Fever and West Nile Virus increase along with sea level rise? Florida Atlantic University continues to support the Florida Institute for Health Innovation in its work studying climate change related health risks. More >

New U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit
This resource was developed by a partnership of federal agencies and organizations led by NOAA. It provides scientific tools, information, and expertise to help people manage their climate-related risks and opportunities, and improve their resilience to extreme events. More >
IPCC 5th Assessment Synthesis Report
The Synthesis Report of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report provides an overview of the state of knowledge concerning the science of climate change, emphasizing new results since the publication of the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report in 2007. More >
