Analysis: Seabed fossils show the ocean is undergoing a change not seen for 10,000 years
Dr Peter Spooner (UCL Earth Sciences) shares what his team's study of deep-sea fossils reveals about the changes in ocean circulation, and how that has affected ecosystems in the Atlantic Ocean. Changes in ocean circulation may have caused a shift in Atlantic Ocean ecosystems not seen for the past 10,000 years, new analysis of deep-sea fossils has revealed.

New climate models suggest that future sea level rise could be much lower than previously feared
Two papers published in Nature this week call into doubt recent predictions of imminent Antarctic ice sheet collapse. They are led by King's College London and Victoria University of Wellington, and involve colleagues from across the US, Canada, UK and Europe, including the University of Bristol. The first paper suggests that sustained collapse of Antarctic ice-cliffs into the ocean, caused by rising global temperatures and melting ice shelves, may not have a large impact on sea level rise.

Who shares experiences of climate change in a 1.5C world and beyond?
A new framework to understand how uneven the effects of a 1.5C world are for different countries around the world has been published today in Geophysical Research Letters, led by researchers from the Environmental Change Institute (ECI) at the Oxford University Department of Geography. It has been long understood that climate change will affect some regions more severely than others.
