    High-resolution ocean model provides insight into sea turtles’ lost years

    An exquisitely detailed global ocean model simulation from NCAR has given scientists rare insight into where baby sea turtles may go in their “lost years” after they scramble off the sandy beaches where they are born and swim into the open ocean.

    Past is key to predicting future climate, scientists say

    In a review paper published in the journal Science, a group of climate experts makes the case for including paleoclimate data in the development of climate models. Such models are used globally to assess the impacts of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions, predict scenarios for future climate and propose strategies for mitigation.
