Nature Climate Change, Published online: 02 September 2019; doi:10.1038/s41558-019-0559-9 Bananas are a staple food crop and important agricultural export for many countries. Here, it is shown that global banana yields have increased historically and will continue to increase in Africa but reduced yields are expected among the larger producers.
Nature Climate Change, Published online: 02 September 2019; doi:10.1038/s41558-019-0561-2 The supply of dense Antarctic Bottom Water to the Atlantic overturning circulation has declined in recent years. Observations show that since 2014 this has stabilized and slightly recovered due to variability in upstream dense waters, with implications for the global climate.
Nature Climate Change, Published online: 02 September 2019; doi:10.1038/s41558-019-0564-z Solar geoengineering could limit temperature increase, but its use is controversial. This study shows that climate experts are more opposed to geoengineering if they expect severe global climate change damages, but are more supportive if they expect severe damages in their home country.
Nature Climate Change, Published online: 28 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41558-019-0575-9 The latest IPCC report highlights that a change in diets for richer nations, and smarter land use, could ensure food security and mitigation of potential climate impacts.
Nature Climate Change, Published online: 26 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41558-019-0557-y Diatoms have silicate skeletons that affect their buoyancy in the ocean. Ocean acidification reduces silicification, with varying effects between species, and could alter the marine carbon and silica cycles through changes in community composition and sinking rates.
Nature Climate Change, Published online: 26 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41558-019-0552-3 Along the West Antarctic Peninsula, a 25-year dataset indicates that oceanic CO2 uptake depends on upper ocean stability and phytoplankton dynamics. Diatoms achieve high oceanic CO2 uptake and uptake efficiency. There has been a nearly fivefold increase in oceanic CO2 uptake due to sea ice changes.
At least 200 passengers have been stranded in some ports of Luzon as they were prevented from traveling Monday noon due to inclement weather. The post PCG: 210 passengers stranded in Luzon ports due to bad weather appeared first on Inquirer News.
