  3. Cover crops left over winter in a field stick up above the snow.

    Cover crops may increase winter temperatures in North America

    Cover crops grown in fields during winter may be warming temperatures in the northern United States and southern Canada, according to a new study by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The crops, a land management strategy farmers use between growing seasons, create a darker surface than a snow-covered field, absorbing more heat from the Sun and producing a local warming effect.

    Wintertime Arctic Sea ice's long-term rate of decline slows

    New research by NASA and NCAR has found that increases in the rate at which Arctic sea ice grows in the winter may have partially slowed down the decline of the Arctic sea ice cover.

    Uneven rates of sea level rise tied to climate change

    The pattern of uneven sea level rise over the last quarter century has been driven in part by human-caused climate change, not just natural variability, according to a new study.
