The Vulture is pleistocenic volcano localized in the north of Basilicata and it is the highest mountain of the southeastern sector of the Apennines with its 1327 m a.s.l., and also the easternmost volcanic centre of the whole Italian...
The Arctic Ocean began warming rapidly at the beginning of the 20th century, decades earlier than modern experimental measurements have so far documented. The news comes from an international research group coordinated by the Institute of Polar Science (Cnr-Isp)...
Animals find it increasingly difficult to mate and reproduce, often due to man and his habits. Among these causes of disturbance to animal love, climate change comes first, but also deforestation, noise, light and plastic pollution, poaching play decisive...
From waste to resource, from problem to opportunity. The volcanic ashes of Etna, which have fallen abundantly especially on the foothills in recent weeks as a result of the volcano's frequent paroxysms, could be used for various applications in...
The geothermal energy is a possible source of provisions, using the inner heat of the Earth and reprenents an effective option Geothermal energy is a possible source of energy supply that exploits the Earth's internal heat and is, in...
Climate change is a complex phenomenon involving a wide range of interactions between extreme climate events and natural and anthropogenic components. Severe weather events affected large forest areas in the last decades, changing the ability to provide ecosystem services...

Global warming will change the lengths of the four seasons, a new study suggests, potentially making six-month-long summers the norm by the year 2100. In contrast, winters could last less than two months a year, while spring and autumn similarly...
It is called ENEA-RegESM (Regional Earth System Model) and is able to simulate the atmosphere-ocean dynamics in relation to the physical and biological processes occurring on the Earth's surface, such as heat fluxes, CO2 absorption by the Earth's ecosystems...
