Asia-Pacific Region Faces Climate Change Induced Migration

Asia-Pacific Region Faces Climate Change Induced Migration

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) reported that countries in the Asia-Pacific region will need to develop policies to deal with massive population shifts as a result of climate change impacts such as sea-level rise and variable monsoons. The region is highly exposed to environmental risks, having by far the highest population density of any continent living in low-elevation coastal zones, while it is also home to the largest number of people living in poverty.

NASA Satellites Detect Pothole on Road to Higher Seas

NASA Satellites Detect Pothole on Road to Higher Seas

Like mercury in a thermometer, ocean waters expand as they warm which contributes to drive sea levels higher over the long term. For the past 18 years, the U.S./French Jason-1, Jason-2 and Topex/Poseidon spacecraft have been monitoring the gradual rise of the world’s ocean in response to global warming.This year, continents got extra dose of rain, so much so that global sea levels actually fell over most of the last year.

Pacific Walruses Studied as Sea Ice Melts

Pacific Walruses Studied as Sea Ice Melts

The extent of sea ice has been less in recent summers, and large herds of walruses have been hauling out on beaches in Alaska and Russia in the past few years, forsaking sea ice for sand in what has become a symbol of climate warming. Studies show that In 2010, walruses came ashore in late August, and this year, the sea ice disappeared from the shelf earlier, and walruses have already begun to come ashore.
