In a unique study showing how different regions of the planet may react to global warming differently, researchers have shown that people in the Himalayas will have to contend with flooding, while

Changes in the hydrology of high-altitude catchments may have major consequences for downstream water supply. Based on model projections with a higher spatiotemporal resolution and degree of process complexity than any previous intercontinental comparative study, we show that the impacts of climate change cannot be generalized. These impacts range from a high climatic sensitivity, decreasing runoff, and significant seasonal changes in the Central Andes of Chile to increasing future runoff, limited seasonal shifts, but increases in peak flows in the Nepalese Himalaya.

Retreat of Gangotri glacier will not have drastic influence on the flow of Ganga as the river is not totally dependent on glaciers for its water even in the head-water region, said the government o

A new NASA-led study finds that almost one-fifth of the global warming that has occurred in the past 150 years has been missed by historical records due to quirks in how global temperatures were re

The earth is on track for its hottest year on record and warming at a faster rate than expected, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said on Thursday.

According to NASA figures, the first half of 2016 was on average 2.4 degrees warmer than the late 19th Century

Slow-melting of glaciers due to global warming may cause huge floods in Bhutan in the future and result in loss of keystone species which may encourage probable animal poachers to hunt in this coun

In February last year, an ice wall collapsed on Sonam post at 21,000 feet on the northern Siachen glacier, burying 10 soldiers of the 19 Madras regiment.

Today, a negative correlation is observed in the amount of rainfall in north-western Africa and north-western Europe.
