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...
The United Nations decided to dedicate the decade 2021-2030 to the 'restoration of ecosystems on every continent and every ocean'. Indeed, damaged ecosystems’ rehabilitation could actually play an essential role in the fight against poverty and climate change. In this...
The melting of ice across the planet is accelerating at a record rate, with the melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets speeding up the fastest, research has found. The rate of loss is now in line with the...
A high-tech laboratory for the study of algae, bryozoans, molluscs and corals, organisms that are still 'little considered' but are extremely important for climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, is being set up in the waters of Santa Teresa...
The cultural tradition of bearded strains, South American monkeys who use tools, risks disappearing due to the agricultural conversion of forest areas. The alarm was launched by a study conducted in collaboration between the Cnr Institute of Sciences and...
