Atlantic multi-decadal oscillation dominates Chinese drought — Last modified May 22, 2015 08:18
For many years, China's climate patterns have been linked to the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), a pattern of warming and cooling that shifts phases every 20 to 30 years. This pattern is so well established that many modelling tools are based on the assumption that the PDO is the dominant influence on China's climate; the influence of the Atlantic Multi-decadal Oscillation (AMO) has received less attention.
Agricultural insecticides pose a global risk to surface water bodies — Last modified May 20, 2015 08:49
Streams within approx. 40% of the global land surface are at risk from the application of insecticides. These were the results from the first global map to be modelled on insecticide runoff to surface waters, which has just been published in the journal Environmental Pollution by researchers from the Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research (UFZ) and the University of Koblenz-Landau together with the University of Milan, Aarhus University and Aachen University. According to the publication, particularly streams in the Mediterranean, the USA, Central America and Southeast Asia are at risk.

Termites can help prevent desertification — Last modified May 18, 2015 09:21
Termites can keep desertification at bay by adding nutrients and helping water infiltrate soil. But the vegetation patterns that result can confuse scientists by resembling those formed just before an ecosystem collapses.
