Anthropogenic sound IWC

Anthropogenic Sound. Cetaceans depend on sound for their survival. It is their primary sense and essential for successful foraging, migration and reproduction. In recent years there has been a rapid growth in man-made (anthropogenic) ocean noise, generated from a range of sources including shipping, seismic exploration, drilling and construction.

How Does Climate Change Affect Biodiversity?

Many living organisms are exceptionally good at adapting to new environments, and have done so as the Earth's climate has changed in past millennia; for most, however, the speed of anthropogenic climate change is simply too fast for evolution to keep up.

Centuries of thermal sea-level rise due to anthropogenic

Human activities such as fossil-fuel burning have increased emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), which have warmed the Earth's atmosphere and ocean and caused sea levels to rise. Some of these GHGs (e.g., methane) have atmospheric lifetimes of decades or less, whereas others (e.g., carbon dioxide) persist for centuries to millennia. As policy seeks to reduce climate changes, it is important

Welcome to the AnthropoceneWelcome

The Anthropocene defines Earth's most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, or anthropogenic, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans.. The word combines the root "anthropo", meaning "human" with the root "-cene", the standard suffix for "epoch" in geologic time.

Reconciling anthropogenic climate change with observed

Given the widely noted increase in the warming effects of rising greenhouse gas concentrations, it has been unclear why global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2021. We find that this hiatus in warming coincides with a period of little increase in the sum of anthropogenic and natural forcings.

Human impact on the nitrogen cycle is diverse. Agricultural and industrial nitrogen (N) inputs to the environment currently exceed inputs from natural N fixation. As a consequence of anthropogenic inputs, the global nitrogen cycle (Fig. 1) has been significantly altered over the past century.
