Climate Change:

1. Arctic Sea Ice Decline Driving Ocean Phytoplankton Farther North

A new study reveals phytoplankton spring blooms in the Arctic Ocean, which were previously nonexistent, are expanding northward at a rate of 1 degree of latitude per decade.

2. Hydrology Dictates Fate of Carbon from Northern Hardwood Forests

As spring snowmelt and fall rains inundate northern hardwood forests with moisture, soil bacteria get moving and increase carbon exports to the atmosphere and into nearby water bodies.
